'RB30ET' VL Turbo (SA)

Hey Guys,

First of all, 56k Beware, Even Broadband beware lol.


As most of you would know, I have picked myself up a new car.
Basically its pretty much exactly where I want it, has good power for the fairly little mod's it has. And is in serious mint condition. I cant find a fault or scratch on it.

Here are the stats currently
RB30
Auto
New t3/highflowed 5 month old
Large frount mount cooler
Trans cooler
Stage 1 Shifkit
AFM in cooler piping
3 inch exhaust from turbo back( few months old)
VLT DIFF 3.45
Geniune 180***ks
NEVER BEEN BOOSTED running stock 6-7 pound
(Previous owner told the previous owner who told me (who told my best friend, who told my aunt etc) its got forged pistons but it doesnt make sense because the car has never been boosted)

Runs really well, and get's heaps of looks. Theres only 2 other (That I know of Yellow VLT's in SA. One's out south, and one is in the country. Im not really one to be racing and that sort of thing, but for running on stock boost, it is pretty quick. And have had a couple of runs, im sure Gavin and Jeff will be able to agree with me .

Got some shots of the whole car below, hope you enjoy.



























Some pictures of the engine bay etc for you aswell.
This is the main thing I want to change on the car, and am hoping to have most of it done over the next week weeks.
Just basically a complete tidy up.
Rocker cover, Plenum, Strut Caps, etc.
Just to make it look alot neater.

The interior is one of my favourite things on the car, though its hard to pick a favourite lol. Its different, but I really like it. Everyone seems to have different opinions on exactly what it is. So im not going to say, because no doubt it will be wrong haha.
So if someone knows 100% what it is, I would be keen to know .

















And last, the boot.
Pretty basic, sub does sound pretty mad though.
Only thing I want to do here is to organize it a bit better, get the sub box to stop moving around, and clean up the wires.







Hope you all enjoy,
Sorry about the two post's, if Gav was a better Admin, I could have posted more pics in one post haha.

Appreciate any comments

Thanks,

Matt
