Plans for your car?
Posted 11 April 2012 - 09:00 PM
So, ladies and gents, What do you have planned to do to your ride? be it looks, sound, or performance. What have you got planned?
buy the following:
-Center gear/ handbrake surround thing
-4x100 hub conversion
-Globe conversion for car
-newer/ better radiator
Install the above.
get the following done:
-sub box made
-paint the stockies gloss black
-buy some chrome dress rings and install them
-touch up the chrome on a few bits of the car
but yeah, if the mods don't like me making a new thread about it (cause I'm fairly sure there is one already) then if they could move it, that'd be great (unless you'd prefer a new one to a necro'd one)
Cheers and kgo

I want to do the following to my vy commodore (when I get it):
*Put nice rims on it
*put high ratio rockets in it
*put an exhaust on it
*small audio upgrade (head unit, speakers)
*s pac front bumper with foglights
*small interior upgrades (silver plastic insert thingos on steering wheel etc)
I think that's it. It's a fairly expensive list but that's the joys of working full time at 16 with only a phone bill to pay.

$150 for the motor, gearbox, exhaust, all manifolds, intercooler (I think), turbo and such.
he also wants to offload his brakes to me for $25 xD Thinking I'll just upgrade the fronts to prelude or something rotors and callipers. Should give me some better braking
as for plans:
-Rebuild engine/ make sure it's not going to die on me any time soon/ check clutch and everything.
-Take out old engine
-Clean and possibly respray engine bay
-Fit in intercooler and stuff
-Put rebuilt t1 motor into the engine bay
-Wire it all up
Then It's all the way to saving up for coilovers which apparently bc racing makes now I'm so keen. going to get me some of them, drop the car, and love life. ^^
-Recrome all chrome bits
Lots to do with it. Hoping the car won't be off the road for too long :s I'll try to get it all done in a few days, and either use the missus' car, or borrow my brothers for that time

I hope my car burns to the ground, I won't even claim insurance, I just hope it burns, stupid POS.

- Absorbed Power GT12-75C battery
- Clarion HX-D2
- Tru Tech T 2.100 amps x3
- Dynaudio System 342 (to be hooked up active)
Audio stuff to buy:
- Subwoofer and amp, probably Dyn and Tru Tech
- Canare RCA cables with Canare true 75ohm RCA plugs.
- Lots of fat power cable (good thing I work at a welder repair shop. )
As for performance to come:
- Fully built (forged, ceramic coated, titanium, etc etc) twinscrew supercharged, water intercooled, 4AGZE with an aim of about 200 - 250 Kw or so.
- TRD coilovers, wilwood brakes, Enkei rims, blah, blah, blah.
- Every Japanese factory option I can find.
- A HEAP more, but I could write an essay on what is done so far and what's to come.
