Default My L67 in Australia

hey there evry1,
yes im from Australia, just to let you know for those who arent aware, between 1997 and 2002 GM (Holden in Aus)
bought out a limited range of there large cars with an option of the L67 (supercharged v6) the cars are a rear wheel drive with the engine in a north-south position, unlike your front wheeled east-west engined cars. and all of our L67 powered cars were only available in Automatic. my particular car is a 1999 Holden Calais, (top of the range and very luxury) electric seats, duel zone climate control, electric EVRYTHING! and evrything else you can think of etc. The exterior of the car is stock im going for the whole "sleeper look" plus it deters the cops from pulling me over, and i spend all my money on engine mods not body, but looks clean anyway. While the engine is of course the L67 with mods including:
2.8 */c pully, 1.9ratio roller rockers, extractors 1.3/4", twin 2.5" exhaust, heat shields for over extractors, MSD ignition, top gun 10mm spark plug leads with spark plugs 2 heat ranges colder, colder thermostat, custom cold air intake, front mount air-air intercooler, custom computer, stage 2 shift kit in auto trans, 3.73 diff gear ratio and fullspool (locked diff) on the dyno the car has made 286 REAR WHEEL HP on pump fuel and am yet to take it to the track but am aiming for a high 11'* or flat 12sec pass on slicks.
