    Is it just me or does that have at least 2 too many cylinders?

    Nice car mate, and yeah as Dawso said, that is one low Commodore. Do the rocker covers come standard colour coded?

    nice suspension mods. vary rarely see a commo with coilovers, or even a commo owner who knows that they are.

    now please be one of the first people in australia, and get some fitment happening on a commo lol.

    btw do all vic plates come in that funny font?

    Teins and coil overs on a commodore aren't as rare as you think. The majority of owners on LS1.com.au have this, I think its more to the point that some of you are a bit naive when it comes to holdens or anything other than japanese cars.

    I really like those, I've got the same engine+box+diff at home in a 2002 Monaro. Nice combo although the gearshift throw is so bloody long!

    Pity about the colour :p

    Really nice car mate, the power's quite impressive and i'm lovin how tidy the colour coded engine bay is. Although i gotta say the "SU8TLE" plates don't really work too well with this green beast, it's not really very inconspicuous. :p

    It looks great dude, I've actually always liked the VY and VZ SS Commodores, I would own a V8 Holden happily :) But there are other cars I tend to lean more towards instead (within the budget of a V8 Commodore)..

    I love the V8 roar, and the style and colour looks great :)

    Nice car dude!

    And I like the "SUBTLE" plates, it's like calling a big guy tiny haha..

    No, bad Paul!

    A VH41DE/VH41DETT maybe but not an LS3. Thats a very bad Paul!

    The Commo did sound pretty decent there, would have thought 3" was too big for a naturally aspirated car though.
