EVLTX5's Comments:

just thought i might chuck my car up. I bought it about 4 mnths ago, found it on the side of the rd for sale, only had 150kms on the clock, n was driven by an elderly person, it's in mint condition, without a mark on it.... im either planning to modify it a bit, and get some real speed out of it, or just sell it in a while, n make a bit of a profit from the sale..... tell me what you guys think........

Modification Listing
Exhaust System: $400

i have installed a 2.5 inch exhaust,including a 3inch chrome dumpy...... looks good compared to the stock pipe. It also has a nice tone, not too loud

Exterior: $1000

found the rims at a specialist store, cheap, so i grabbed up quick

Interior: $250

i have a leather autotechnica steering wheel.... i saw this at autobarn, and knew it was for my car.... suits it perfectly... i have also added a chrome autotechnica gear knob, looks good compared to the original plastic crappy thing

haha yeah i knw, im up there with all the 4wd's, im planning to get some rims, so il be lowering it then........

cruise sounds good, wat day is it? where bouts did they say their meeting up?

car looks neat as man.... got a good starting point there bro, personally having own one myself, i reckon you should try modifiying it up a little.... simple upgrade like pod, boost and exhaust will make a huge difference... top end on these things arent too bad with those mods.... rolleyes.gif

Posted by: HRD1966 on March 20, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Looks pretty standard but time and money is something that there is possibly very little like the rest of us at the moment. Would look nice with rims, lowered and a bit of a body kit set up on it. Would look good with some bonnet fins but thats my thoughts on em...

hows that crazy boost gauge going??? No probs with it??? biggrin.gif

Posted by: QIK-TX5 on June 7, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

ur ride looks insane man, those rims suit it perfectly. you should tint the rear (tail lights and panel inbetween). ive got the 88 model - same body shape - and i tinted the rear with this spray i got from a hardware store, and it looks heaps better. there's a pic of it on my page. my advice is keep it and get some speed outta it. with the right mod's the TX's can go qik as. keep up the good work man

Posted by: SABBAi on June 7, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

It is looking good now. I still think you should spray the tail lights with that translucent candy apple red....Now that would look great. biggrin.gif
I'll be getting rims soon, I'll let you know when I do. I had the bushes done, and the outcome is absolutly awesome.... cool.gif

Posted by: mx68u on June 7, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

looks good man... it's amazing how much better a car can look with a decent set of rims.. i scored mine for $400 too cool.gif

I think i may have that same autotechnica steering wheel, will post a pic of it soon, just like rims amazing how it can change the look of the interior stuart.gif

When u got power (not a little 4 cyclinder shit box) thats when u can bag other peoples cars

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Hey evl ay gona have a lil laugh with me smile.gif thius guy thinks his standard vn commie is gonna beat the shit out of your lil 4 lt turbo smile.gif he he he he does he realise his car weighs like 2 times as much as ours and still only has bout (or maybe even less) the same power as ours. *lol* Ill drag him smile.gif

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Oh and due his greddy sticker prolly gives him the same extra kw's that ur bloody tinted tail lights give you.

Posted by: da_vn on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Oi mates my vn beats my mates tx5 turbo which is running 10psi boost so yeah when u wanna race?
My vn pulls 182 kws
Anyone is brizzy wanna race ill put money on it just bring it on

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Well good on you mate a whole 182 kw's gee smile.gif how ya getting that much power? from ya profile uve done practically nothin to it must either be some immaculate thing. Post up ya slips and give us a look.

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

The only thing that would even give u some power is the chip?? and the machined cams. I mean whats a standards vn power?? Like 90kws?? So basicall uve gone from thats to 182 kw's with just those things bloody big jump smile.gif must been tuned bloody good smile.gif ohh and mate evl's right its a well known fact that the vn were one of holdens most notrious cars for engine wear and damage. So just cause yours hasnt doesnt mean it dont happen.

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 9, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

P.S Im not tryin to have a go at u or anythin im just saying ya dont bag people for driving there cars urs probably is quick but so's evl's and so are half the people's on here. all evl was doin was pointing out a fact that im sure most vn and commodore owners would know.

Posted by: da_vn on September 10, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

umm.. yeah i get ur point and yeah i wasnt tryin to pay out on yous (seriously) and mate ive but a new motor in cause i wasnt goin to do a motor up that i had 220,000kms on it so i put a new one in and if u want a copy of the dyno sheet ill be happy to email it to u

Posted by: zorb_rules on September 10, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Naa man she's all sweet Ill still drag ya biggrin.gif I was just thinking that my mate has pretty much the same car with a cnew computer new engine and shaved heads copper gaskets and all that and his only gets like 120kw's on the dyno and I still rape him when we drag smile.gif but yeah after looking around I spose ya could have that much power if she's tuned well and all. So soz dude smile.gif but I still reckon Ill beat ya wacko.gif with my measly 119kw's in my car thats like twice as light as urs *lol*.l YA gotta admit those commie's are bloody heavy.

Posted by: BLKTX5 on September 27, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Posted by: SABBAi on December 16, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

Posted by: Grebs85 on November 25, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

EVLTX5 if your willing to sell your car im willing to buy it!!

i like your ride so if ur interested in selling it let me know, ive already got one like yours but its not in the best condition and im thinking of just doing it up a bit and selling it.

Posted by: TX5_turbo15 on January 30, 2006

hey EVL,
wondering what the selling price would be for ur TX5?? i have one already and live in wa and i have $12,000 to do mine up or get another one and choose the better one, and do a bit of a swip and swap with the parts but .. i would much rather a beauty like urs and chuck all my shit in it :-) thanx
