VK327s VK 1986 Royale with Boost

Recommended Posts

Since iv entered this thing in OS drags this year, its about time i  chucked up  a post about one of my latest money pits....

1986 VK  Royale (vk and a half efi 3.3)

After a palmy  swap meet road trip a couple of years ago in this VK  my  mate Chris offered me this... so  it came home with me.

I drove it for a while as is fixing a few issues and decided to  sell off my other VK as a rolling body (kept the 327 for our HQ more in that some other time) also kept all the good bits for this one (suspension seats etc) 

then came the decision to  do something different...  and so  it all started with  a cheap  second hand gt35 turbo off facebook (which turned out to  be rooted) then came the Garrett turbo and the turbosmart bits and the link G4 and the gearbox, clutch,  driveshaft and the full engine build.... and into  the pit of $$ this car goes

to  save me rambling on Ill let the pictures do the talking....

also discuss here:
