Thought I would share some pictures!
Got this set of wheels last night for $150 with tyres, pretty much a steal.
Fairly stock old girl, redback 2.5" catback, few cluster LEDs, 600w sub/amp and drift high flow panel filter.
265,500KM and still going strong, although lots of squeaking and creaking coming from the front suspension?
0-100 in around 8 seconds haven't done it accurately.

Nah because ive read a lot that the radiator warms up to the trans for it to work properly.it goes through the radiator then through the cooler. Keeps it warm to the touch even in overly normal driving haha

i have heard about the trans cooler splitting on early au's and even ba's, but in saying that my au still has the original factory radiator..
but i have recently bypassed the radiator and fitted a large external cooler like yours and no problems...

Took all the needles off and scraped the paint off both sides with a Stanley knife, they're white LEDs
