    Quicksilver SSV Ute
    Hey all, I've been a member of this site for a few years now and if you've read my name you can probably guess as to why. I used to own a 03 VY SS ute which was a lot of fun however I swapped to a 4wd for a year or so ago... However I'm glad to say that I'm back with my Holden's and am pretty happy with what I have my hands on now! I ended up swapping this for my old 4wd.

    Here's my latest toy, specs are as follows;
    - 2009 Holden VE SSV Quicksilver Ute
    - Only 40,000km's

    Engine Work:
    - Stage 2 cam
    - Hi Stall Auto
    - Twin 3" Manta Exhaust
    - Pacemaker extractors
    - High-Flow Cats
    - 3.9 Diff Gears
    - LS7 Valves + Valve Springs + Lifters
    - Underdrive Harmonic Balancer


    All together she's got 431.7rwhp and all engine work is fully engineered with permits which is a huge plus!!!

    Cosmetic:
    - Lowered on SSL all round
    - Very dark tint
    - HDT Grill
    - Black wrapped roof

    Nice mate, chuck up a dyno sheet if you can.
    I wonder how it passed an emissions test (if it had to have one to be engineered) with a big cam and high flow cats.

    I love the colour match on silver ve bumper bars...

    Looks good mate, any more photos of the roof? What did the wrapping cost you if you don't mind me asking?

    Looking at doing this on my sedan (also silver).

    The previous owner had the roof wrapped so i 'm not 100% on the price, I think it was expensive though because it's a pretty neat job haha. I know you can get it done for around $200 though if you go through people you find off Gumtree :)
