Nice car, but I really don't think there was a GXL version in 1990...

I'm going to have to do some research again.

There was, i checked blue book for the value of the car and it says there was a GXL. I think in 92 there was only the 'vert, after which the FD came out.

Yea, the mufflers are huge and aftermarket. The the car sounds obnoxious right now and im thinking of putting the stock mufflers back on. It wasn't my idea, the guy i bought it from put it on there. I need quick fix the brakes and she's ready to go.

Yea, MSN is right. Its a 2+2 actually, although the rear seats are extremely congested.

www.driveautoparts.com.au will export rotors and brakes, suspensions etc... they're good, we got some good brakes for a holden commodore vn for $114.00 in total (transfer and export costs), it was great, they work perfect and only took like 2 hours to put on.

heh, nice one. Ill have my hands full learning about rotarys, then ill try to boost the N/A 13B thats in it right now instead of the standard turbo II conversion. Im not looking for 20b power here, somewhere around 350ish at the wheels sounds good to me when its all said and done. For now though im completely broke (i've spent over $10k on two cars) and i have no idea when i can get some money.

thanks for the compliments guys.

Dont bother turboing the N/A 13b.... Just save your money for a V8 swap and get 350 at the rear wheels the old fashioned way.
