VS Commodore 4.2L Twin Turbo
first time i've had it home with the 4.2L in. tuning is not finished but
the idle is certainly alot meaner than before.
sounds better with speakers that have some bass as it sounds really whiney
and tractor-like otherwise.

Just testing out the new HD camera, figured I might as well do a new video
showing what the car is like now. Still very much a work in progress, shown
by mismatched leads and cable ties.

(decent) Chinese T70 0.70 front 0.84 rear (Running 10psi atm)

Car has done upwards of 2500km since this most recent setup and has been
handling it quite well, only problems so far have been the air filter, and
leads melting but apart from that, it's been a real pleasure. Next on the
list is some form of locked diff, and a few more psi in the intake!

Due to popular demand, here's a short video of the car as it is now.
Currently running 2.5psi on the stock pulley, slowly building up funds for
all the necessary bits to run 10-12psi within the next 3 months.
The Supercharger is currently setup with
a electric clutch, the switch on my dash engages it so the pulley doesn't
free spin on the belt, and starts cranking the charger.
**Since this video, the setup was changed to a 10psi intercooled setup.
Then eventually replaced with a T70 turbo. Progress thread can be found here:
