    Wow Kiwi, looks fantastic! Will you put clear coat on them to keep them from peeling up when you're doing 180 mph?

    Just a couple of nice shots end of day. The purple tends to go blue in the fading light

    You're almost there !!! :)

    Pull your Intake
    Remove Heads and remember your compression ratio will automagically rise to nearly 10.5:1 when you install the new head gaskets. A FREE added bonus !
    Remove Radiators
    Raise engine and support
    Drop the Oilpan
    Remove timing chain cover
    Insert and time your favorite "lopey camshaft"
    Reassemble
    Call Torrie for a tuning tweak

    Enjoy!!

    Head Gaskets are already done with 20 thou skim off heads. It is noticeable the change in sound, crisper and louder. Not to mention the new head gaskets are lighter hahaha

    Done professionally top of the line 3M with the most UV protection. Glue and sellotape are my nemesis, ain't no way I am putting stickers on a car

    I had them made local with the bestest longest lasting most UV protected 3M vinyl money can buy. Our scorching summer sun in NZ kills most paints and vinyls. NZ has very high skin cancer rates too. Just saying.
    I have just come across a guy in Timaru with a 2006 CE build#1 There were 2 sold in Aussie new Build #1 and #86. he bought #1 and brought it back to NZ.I will be visiting him in the next few weeks. More details later.

    Just found out there are 77 road registered SRT-10 trucks in NZ. That is insane for a population of only 5 million.

    Been having some erratic idle etc. While installing the train horns I noticed one of the O2 sensors was really loose. Tightened that up so hoping that will help.
