For sale is my 2014 VF SSV. It was factory optioned with an electronic sunroof, Bose stereo, cream suede interior inserts (as opposed to the standard black) and...
No need. My tuner monitored intake temps when retuning it and he said temperature was the same as using an OTR if not better. Plus it looks way tidier.
There was nothing particularly wrong with it, I just find them big and bulky. It was a great car but personally I just prefer how the VZ drives and looks...and its a bit more unique these days too.
Haha you're spot on mate. If I was a dyno queen I'd be pretty upset lol
However my mechanics (Accel Garage) dyno is known for reading about 20-30rwkw under....but as long as the driveabilities good...
After regretfully selling my Black VZ R8 a few years back I was on the hunt for another one as my E3 R8 didn't tick the boxes...

Haven't seen one in red, looks great! What are your plans for it?
Really good mate. The car handles really well on them and they hooked up at Calder so I'm very happy. I bought them online and the price was reasonable too!

Thanks for the offers guys and sorry for not getting back to you all. I haven't been on for a while. I ended up changing plans so no longer required the catback. Thanks anyway! Appreciate it
My misses drives an 07 GTS with a twin 2.5 hi tech mufflers cat back on it. We have our first child on the way and she wants the car to be quieter so I'm after a standard E1 cat back and...
Another vote for Luis at APS.
I agree. This is exactly what I've done
My mate has this cam in his VZ SS M6 with the L76 6 litre, along with Higgins cnc heads and 3.9 diff gears making 342rwkw. The top end (say between 5000-7000rpm) is really strong, however under that...
I raced at Heathcote about a month ago, again in street trim. The tractions a lot worse there. The best ET I managed was 13.01 but at 114.5mph and a 2.38 60ft. At least mph was up :)
I bought the truetrac from harrop and then took it to be fitted at a diff shop. All up about $1600 which was a rebuilt diff and fitting the truetrac but using my standard gears.
It behaves very...
Yeah mate I'm stoked! I organised a drag racing day at Heathcote for next Sunday so ill be doing a few more passes then too. Hopefully crack a 12.5, and ill see if the rumours are true about Calder...
Just got back from Calder. Had 3 passes 12.91 at 111mph, 12.78 at 111mph and 12.68 at 112mph with 60ft's ranging from 1.996 to 2.177. Very happy with that result considering the car was full weight...
Just ran a 12.6 at 112mph in full street trim in my manual VZ R8 with a shitty 1.996 60ft :)
Love it mate. I'm glad its got some original R8 wheels on it now!
Thanks for the comments guys. Here are a few videos.

Steve at S&S Racing Dyno Centre in Sunshine does Kalmaker tunes for Holden V8's
Yeah true. My VS weighed just over 1700kg with me in it (it was 1640kg without). The R8 weighs a bit more but the extra power, standard height suspension (will help with traction), the truetrac and...
