    Oops i bought another VX220...

    After one long week im left with one near stock na ready for sale and one rather clean modded Tubby
    Picked her up about 5 hours before a show at Santa pod, since then i've swapped the interior and all my other mods from the na. I've managed to get her rolling roaded in that time to as it was clear to see it was no standard Z20LET.

    238bhp
    263 ft lbs of torque

    Thats around 260 bhp per tonne... as a rough idea of what that compares to...

    BMW M3 414bhp = 258 per tonne
    BMW M5 499bhp = 265 per tonne













    Over the moon with how the thing pulls and its great to be back in a Z20 let

    How much that set you back, for some reason im not keen on them for myself, but want one for a toy anyways, though i know they still demand some good money!

    Both cars look awsome though dude

    EDIT: just found it at shy over 10k

    You can pick up a rough na for 7k or another grand for a nice example - but the turbos your looking at 12-13k for a clean VX220.

    Nice

    I personally prefer the red having seen it at PVS, but I suspect when everything is transferred over the tubby will look just as good.

    Are those tinted front headlights legal? They look good.

    Nice purchase though. I've had a play in a VXT and they really do shift even with a fat **** like me behind the wheel.

    Yellow Tubby

    npd-Everything is transferred, will post a few more picslater tonight. The headlights are legal, they are fly eyes vinyl, very fine mesh vinyl which allowslight emission

    Domino- I thought the na was quick but this is a whole different ball game especially with the remap

    Lee- i fancied something quicker and couldn't justify supercharger costs, this was a lot more sensible and around the same power. i did look at a few other marques, TVR's, and even skylines etc but after owning a VX its hard to stray
