My SXYVLT

this was my VL, very stock but clean.









then this happened! i got hit by a 17 y.o joy rider!









So i decided to put a bit of money into my ride, after i got the damage fixed i got it sitting on monroe shocks and superlow king springs.
I also fitted 18" wheels ( which r a B*tch with super lows )








Then i needed a power boost so i purchased a T04 turbo and a Hybrid intercooler.
its now on 9psi boost with 200rwkw and running a 14sec flat 1/4 mile.








soon i will fit it with a decompression plate and performance comp to try break that 13sec barrier.

it may be a manual, in which case 13s/14s would be about right for 200rwkw? On street tyres.

ps BT is seems its always just me and you left online at these stupid hours every night

Yeah i got 2 problems - its an N/A auto and when i had it dynoed it was fresh but now its slips pretty bad and i did the run on sh*tty tread so i got no power to the ground.
ive picked up som slicks and a new auto which im putting a Keas shift kit in so i should get down to a 12sec run.

i fitted a decompression plate the other day so i gotta take it bak to the dyno, ill post the results.

yeah its converted, picked up the conversion for $600 but the turbo had a lot of shaft play so i brought a T04.
