    Car looked great on Friday dude.

    Do you think something like a simple watts link might reduce twist off the line? Front left was getting up pretty high (good for pics but maybe no so for the car!). You ran a 10-second pass later in the night in the left lane, car took off like a bullet, you must have tripped the beams?

    I'll have to photograph it properley for you sometime

    This VK is so versatile guys! It still has all power windows, power sunroof and is driven all the time. How many 9.1 second streeters do you know that have driven 600km back from Canberra in its current guise with only spring changes and a pass seat added? Maybe a reduction in boost too - he he (only a little). Monster convertor, 3.45s and all!

    Seriously, this is a street car knocking on the door of 8's...insane!

    And other than engine machining and tranny building - was ALL done in Matts shed.

    Is it running a electric water pump?

    Thanks for the compliments on the wheels.

    I am trialling a davies craig ewp at the moment, with some BA falcon thermo fans, so far so good, need to try a few different settings on the fans and pump to see if it can run a little cooler on hot days.

    Yea just seen the pics Luke took and seen it had no belt and pulley. Is the water impellers in their? Wonder if thats makes a difference?

    tough car mate!! really is a awesome example of a tough street car. Give yourself a big pat on the back for this one especially seeing as you done it all yourself at home.
    Did you tune it yourself too?
