yeah a Majority of the Work Has been done Over the Last 2-3 years

I Haven't Quite Finished It At this Point

I have Got got Get a Few things Trimmed Up In Leather(VS Series 3 Caprice Door Trims) to match the console

I want to get the Body kit refitted as it doesn't quite line up in a few areas(kind of Bugs me)

But i am currently Sourcing Engine Parts For a 355 Stroker Rebuild, which should start to happen towards the end of the year

(Gotta sell a few VP V8 Parts first to help Fund these- I Have Just Put a Post in the FS Section)

I have seen this car in the flesh as Dan is the Next door neighbour of some close friends of trudes and mine......I can honestly say it is probably the neatest VS going around, the attention to detail is awesome, and the workmanship is outstanding......oh and Dan is a top bloke also who is pretty clued up with commodores eg wiring diagrams and making patch cables for level 3 instrument cluster upgrades.

well Havent Really Updated this thread in a while, so i thought i better, Since i last Updated I have Got Alot Of the Engine Together

Starr manifold, Harrop CrankShaft, Crane 888241 Cam, VT 5lt Heads, Roller Rockers, Crane Dual Valve Springs, Scat H beam Conrods with the 2000 Series Bolts, Crane Hydraulic Roller Lifters, ARP 12 Pt Head Studs, Crane HI-6 with LX92 Coil, 120amp Police Alternator, Walbro Fuel Pump, Rollmaster Timing chain and Powerbond race balancer, New Standard Volume Oil Pump and Pickup

Still Have to get a few Parts to get But a majority of the cost is gonna be machine work, as im going to convert the Spare VT Engine Block to 4 Bolt Mains, and Get SRP Pistons Once i know what Size i can get










Bought a S/hand Set of Stock VT 5lt Heads from ttvn, i sent the heads to Rhemac, and had them Machined to suit the Yella Terra Roller Rockers, My New Valve Springs, all Ported and Just a general Reco





Dyno Run-It was Mainly Done so i could get rid of the Maf Sensor, Still Running Sequential Injection(5lt is Stock as far as i Know)



well thought id just put up some pictures of the Engine Bay as it is at the Moment, The New Set Of VT Engine Covers Were Painted Sizzle Metallic a Few Months ago(From the VE2 range) i Havent Clear coated them as i like the look of them Flat, i haven't fitted the Matching Rocker Covers yet, they probably just get fitted to my New Motor, so the ones in this pic are still the HSV ones(Sting Red)





Also Finally Finished relocating the Battery,



Also Looking At a few Changes to the Car(once the Engine is Done) Including VZ Maloo Rims, Harrop 4 piston Brake Kit and a Sunroof

here a Photoshop of the VS with the Maloo Rims
