  • what tuning do you do to your machines???

    just realised that i've never read anything on hear about you vxr8 lads doing any engine mods. Granted you have insanely powerful vehicles as standard, but surely you must sometimes have the urge to tune, supercharge maybe. Anyone done any tuning on their vxr8? and if so what?

          The LS series engines have plenty of tuning options, most people just bolt on a blower as it's the easiest option for more power, that's what I've done but I want more so it's going in for forged pistons, headers, cats and a cam upgrade.

            Sounds brilliant, was it your supercharged beast that was ripping up silverstone at the weekend? What a noise couldn't wait for you to hammer up hanger straight

              I understand why people want to modify a car and try and squeeze all they can out of it, but I am more than happy with the power and performance from the car in its stock format, with the only addition of the Wortec exhaust to get the V8 rumble. I just wouldn't be able to use any of the extra power modifying would bring given the roads I travel on.

                It's all down to personal preference. I love my beast just the way she is. Red, Fast and as far as I'm concerned she handles like a dream. Polish her up nice and shiney and watch the many drivers stare as you go past..... I also get a kick out of hearing what the guys have done to their rides. I have to be honest in that I would love my GTS to have the engine out of EFIGY....Nice and shiney with a great big blower on top.....

                  Sadly that won't ever see production and GM are also looking at smaller blocks on the next generation of V8's (5.5l direct injection ), kicking out the same stock power as the R8's are now but given all the bad press regarding big engines, it would appear everyone is downsizing.

                            My monaros getting twin turboed, hopefully it will be up and running next year. Aiming for approx 500hp at low boost and 600hp at high boost, but with a custom aston martin vanquish hybrid gearbox to trap 170+ mph in a standing mile.
                            Monaro with a few wortec bits
