  • E2 LS3 VXR8 wannabe saying hi ... and which supercharger ?

    Hi everyone

    Just signed up since I'm considering getting an E2 LS3 VXR8 for the road

    I'm currently driving a modded Evo but I think I'm looking for some RWD antics and V8 bark

    A quick question would be if I want really intrusive S/C whine all the time, what should I go for ?

    As with most wannabes, I saw the Bathurst S video on Top Gear and that sounded epic ... but I've been advised by people that it's much more cost effective to go for an aftermarket supercharger install instead of the official version

    cheers

      Welcome, get one lol as for SC then its personal choice it goes fast enough without it and pointless having the SC unless its derestricted. Good luck on your search

          tbh i think barthurst s is better option than fitting aftermarket! its ready to go and the price of the car is what you pay. With modding the prices can start to spiral out of control and you'll end up paying more for something that isn't quite as special as the barthhurst

                        is there a wanted section on here ?

                        I'm looking for a red vxr8, ls3, manual, with headers, cams, exhaust, supercharger and 6-pot/4-pot brake upgrade ... preferably with black/dark 20" and the foglight covers ... all from a recognised tuner who would be able to vouch for the car and do an inspection before I buy it

                        Anyone got a rough idea of what I should be looking for and is there a list of generally recognised "best" parts to go for for the upgrades mentioned above ?

                        I looked on the web and have seen Monkfish's and Walkinshaw's websites ... and had a nose around here but some help in deciding would be appreciated since as you can expect, each tuner seems to spec different products

                        I'm kicking myself for not buying a standard car for £21k new from dealer in July 2009 when GM were having "trouble" ... looking at prices I could sell it now for pretty much the same price I'd have bought it for ! ... shame as a secondhand buyer that the current resale for July 2009 cars doesn't reflect the price actually paid for them ... but it's great news for the buyer
