Thanks, I guess most people on this site are not really intersted in V8 Calais with a Walky kit. I did consider a RB26DETT, but choose the injected V8 instead. Would like to do a VL with a RB26DETT one day though

Very very good work. The paint / wheels and kit come together very nicely. It must be very low with that ride height and the kit by the looks of things.

You know turbo 355 is the only option

Thanks. Yeah it is very low and sometimes a bit of a pain in the assÖ my suspension is pretty hard so only really a problem going in and out of driveways. Oh and speed bumps are a no go zone! But itís not a daily driver so it doesnít worry me

Yeah the more I think about it the more I think it will be a twin turbo stroker

I went with a Getrag M34 (VS-VT S1) 5sp box and they have an electronic speedo setup, so thatís the reason for VS dash

That car is absolutely stunning.. Colour, mags, ride height - the lot.. its awesome.. Im a sucker for the walky kit too...

Good to see the occasional bloke still interested in a good old 8 cylinder.. Rare breed these days.

Be sure to wack a thread in the Build up section when you start pulling stereo and seats to make way for the cage.. and ofcourse the force fed 355...

Awesome plans...
Love it.
Alex.

It made 250kw at the wheels

The rear main seal shat itself on the dyno so that's getting done now... still haven't driven it

Really needs more boost and a cooler to make more power, but I've spent enough money on it this year
