VP V6 Calais

V6 Vp Calais

Hey all tell me what you think of my first car. I just got it 4 weeks ago form a car yard, it has done just under 300,000kms but it drives perfectly. The car is stock as a rock at the moment but not for long. I Took it to get detailed at work last week,the bonnet was sooo faded so he did his magic. I couldnt beleive how much of a differance it made i should have taken before and after pics.


MODS TO COME:

*lower it 2 1/2" front and back
*maybe new shocks and camber kit
*stero-2 10" kicker impulse subs-just got them
*pioneer head unit
*4 and 2 channel amps
*6" front and rear speakers
*i am thinking of bolting on a supercharger which came of a vp which has an intercooler kit on it as well but the bearings in it are fcuked so im not sure

Let me know what you think

Nice ride man, Looks very clean too! However cant tell much from the pics, there quite small!
Just a quick note too it you get it lowered, you will most likely need a camber kit, I found that out the hard way!
Nice clean car though, G/L with it man!

just an update.

trans finally let go last month lost 3r4 and 4th gear so took it off the road doing a bit of work to it.

getting my trans built at the moment hope fully have it back on monday.

Puttin a stage 2 shift kit dominator 2400 histall all new vt internals trans cooler etc.

so i thort ild take the engine appart and do a bit of work to that to, first of i took off the heads to check the ridge found it pretty good after 326000kms so i sent the heads off for reconditiong shaving them, i am also port matching the manifolds chucking in some vs supercharged injectors, a set of pacies etc
eventually ill get a full sports system on it but keep it silent V6's wiht exhaust sound like **** imo.

when thats done the car is goin in for a complete 2pac respray back to original get the car looking minta

if your talking baout the crome strips between the red and the grey. gotta tip 4 ya. peel off the crome tape and leave it as metal with the clear backing that will stay on there from the tape. thats what i did with mine
