Nice looking car Nipper. Looks like a Ghia rather than the Futura that it is.
Have you done anything to it in the way of mods? 180 HP or 134 KW at the wheels is pretty good for a car thats only got about 145KW at the flywheel from stock. I'm guessing it gets up and surprises a few at the lights.
Thanks Rastus, yeah I have done a few things to it the list so far is as follows:
* SSV Sports Body Kit.
* Full Pedders Sports Rider Suspension including all new nolathane suspension bushes. (Lowered 30mm).
* Tickford Control arms.
* Pacemaker Headers (with 18" extended secondaries) 2.5" Custom exhaust with Hi Flow Cat Straight through muffler and two Hi Flow Hot Dog style resonators.
* Chiptorque HP4 Chip & Cam.
* K & N Filter.
* Performanced tuned by Gary Scott (Newcastle) for Premium unleaded (Now running Synergy).
Booked in for a 3.45:1 diff conversion tomorrow.
Looking for an induction expert to come up with something for me to get more air into the beast.
Very nice car mate, same colour as my baby Polynesian Green . Looks like you looked after your baby. Decent power as well, a big increase from the 148kw stock, i reckon under my calculations your car has 195kw at the fly , thats decent figures buddy.
lol nah he's not busted... the car i'm thinking of is always parked outside a house.
maybe you guys have seen me.... i'm the one with the sweet sounding eb fairmont ghia wagon v8 bouncing down the road to the beat of the subs.... hehe
geez i sucker alot of commondores at the lights.....
How ya doing, don't mind that XLR8 he's just having a go at me.
I work in Charlestown, Chapman Street if that helps.
Yeah Gary charges around $ 30 a Dyno Run. By the way he mentioned to me he is keen to have a Club Dyno day on his Dyno one Weekend. (Special Deal).
Well the new 3.45:1 diff is in and so far it feels good. Need to take it easy for a feww hundred km's to settle it in. I don't want any mis meshing of the crown pinion. (Brand new gears).
Should be right for the Bathurst run this Sunday.
Booked in on Friday for a Speedo recalibration. (Shes out a tad now).
