    [SYD] $5,000. Manual VT Calais, Turbo, Forged LS1, rego till June 30th 2018.

    Manual Calais, Turbo, Forged LS1, rego till June 30th 2018.

    What I can remember:
    - VT-II 5.7L Holden Calais (Full VX-II conversion inside and out);
    - Built Motor (3.905" Eagle Pistons for boost, K1 Rods, clevite race bearings, balanced, heads skimmed 40 thou, mild cam);
    - 6-speed manual with Ripshifter short throw linkage and NPC Racing Heavy Duty Organic/Copper mix clutch (perfect for the street);
    - Genuine Garrett T04z water cooled turbo;
    - Willall racing Gen-T turbo manifold;
    - Turbosmart e-Boost2 electronic boost management controller;
    - CAPA Performance Intercooler;
    - LS6 Intake manifold;
    - Complete rebuild of suspension with adjustable Koni Yellow shocks, King Springs, superpro urethane rubber, VX-II, Rear Cradle etc etc etc;
    - Harrop Trutrac helical cut diff centre with 3.46 ratio gearset;
    - 5 litre external surge tank with twin Bosch 044 pumps, boost proof fuel rails and an eye watering amount of speedflow fittings;
    - Gforce performance engineering bullet proof half-shaft axles;
    - Clarion VRX935VD stereo headunit DCZ625 6 Disc Stacker (DVD, TV, MP3 etc);
    - Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric-2 tyres in excellent condition;
    - VT-GTS 18Ē Mag Wheels (gutter rash city);
    - Cream leather interior;
    - 20% tint.


    The good:
    - Low kmís. Spent more time in performance shops and on hoists than I would have liked;
    - Itís a manual Calais;
    - Turbo LS1 with a forged bottom end;
    - Has been turboíd for 12 years Ė with a rebuild performed 7 years ago (about 40,000 kms ago);
    - Air-conditioning works;
    - Rego until June 30th 2018.

    The bad:
    - Plastic clips and holders in the engine bay need replacing after 12 years with a turbo pumping out heat;
    - Paint correction and touch ups required. There have been carpark battles, and the rear right door had someone reverse into it when parked. I havenít done anything about it, but assume itís a pretty easy fix for a PDR guy;
    - The suspension creaks and groans. Im certain its just a lubing issue, and needs some grease at the joints and rubbers;
    - Thereís a clunk in the tailshaft. Itís the original VT tailshaft, but I have the VX-II tailshaft with rubber donuts to put in. A drive hub also pops out when doing skids. Itís just the circlip holding the hub in which needs replacing. I have a complete diff to scavenge from for the circlip;
    - Radio antenna doesnít go down. The motor runs, so itís just a new mast and leash required;
    - Leather centre console pad is cracked pretty badly. The leather guy can fix it easily.



    It just needs a little love. Itís an 18-year-old car, and I donít have the time and inclination anymore. Thereís a couple of things like getting the suspension re-greased, and about 2 weekends of work with a bunch of little bits from the wreckers required to bring it to excellent standard.

    Its purely a time matter, as i dont have the bandwidth to get away from work any more. I havent even cleaned the engine bay.

    Due to the quality components, the car could be parted out for a lot more than is listed here. My driveway doesnt allow for removing the chassis though, so I am unable to do so.
    The car is priced for a stress free transaction, and I can take you for a test drive, but due to the highly modified nature, I will be unable to let you drive.

    Happy to EFT the coin and pick up on the weekend.

    Holy shitballs that looked liked a bargain,cunts are trying to get 5k for worn out stockers.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Yep...at 10k would have been sold within 2 days instead of 2 hours at 5k.

    The 5k stockers are overpriced that sit for ages 'cos 2k is what should be worth as usually fucked auto,original engine(lifters,rear main) & few weeks rego.

    There was a guy on PF selling a $9k VT wagon with turbo, manual, truetrack, engine freshen up + other goodies for $9k for a hell of a lot longer than 2 days.

    Wagon was in Mexico this thing is Sydney car with 10 months rego...travel,transport costs & lack of rego(?) made wagon + free time to view probably what killed it for nsw cunts.

    That wagon with nsw rego would have sold quick
