    Default Hello

    Hi Guys,

    I have had my 6 MPS for almost a year now but have just recently joined the forum. The only little mods that i have made are a K&N filter and exhast.

    There is a constant argument in my head whether to modifly or not, one voice says do it the other says leave it alone. I guess i will work it out eventually!

    Welcome Fats!
    Hang out here long enough (or cruise with some of the Vic members) and you'll find the joys in modding real quick!

    From stock, to GT3071, to substantially less modded, many lessons learned!

    Yeah, your screwed. ;-p You'll start modding like crazy now. You've already done your exhaust, so already you're on the slippery slope.

    So welcome. Enjoy the forum.

    Welcome mate

    As Brad (Yeldarb) said, you're pretty much screwed now . But fortunately here at OZMPS, we have excellent facilities to assist with your new-found addiction

    Modding is like the Hotel California. You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave muahahaha!

    Thank you. How did you go going from a v8 to a mps? I know a few boys on the LS1 forum and from hanging out with them, i don't think they will ever be able to give up the V8's

    ---------- Post added at 12:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:10 PM ----------

    Cool, that will be great. Thanks

    ---------- Post added at 12:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:12 PM ----------

    Thanks for that! and thanks for the heads up about the round abouts...one of two things are going to happen, im either going to keep away from them or end up becoming one of them too

    ---------- Post added at 12:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:13 PM ----------

    Thanks and welcome to you aswell! Ive been trying to talk myself out of mods but its becoming harder and harder

    ---------- Post added at 12:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:15 PM ----------

    Thanks for the welcome message....yeah i can see it happening now...mods will become my drug!

    ---------- Post added at 12:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:17 PM ----------

    I am really curious about this round about action, have to see it for myself lol

    [/COLOR]Thank you. How did you go going from a v8 to a mps? I know a few boys on the LS1 forum and from hanging out with them, i don't think they will ever be able to give up the V8's


    [COLOR="Silver"]Owning V8's from the day I got my licence which was a SLR5000 29 years ago to Brockies to my last 370kw at the wheels HSV GTO Coupe I never thought I would own a 4 pot motor EVER, after driving some wrx's my friends had I thought it was quick so after buying a turbo diesel Mazda Bravo Ute in 2006, they invited me to a day at the track to drive the MX5,RX8,MPS6 and the MPS3 and the 3 blew me away from the lot so time come to buy a new company car which was going to be another HSV back in July 2008 and fuel was about to hit $2 a litre in the sundays paper artical so I sat and thought of another option and the MPS3 come to mine from 2 years earlier so I cancelled the cheque on the monday and walking into the Aspley Dealership and order the Sports model with some mods I mentioned and haven't looked back but i have had more work done to the car not to many HSV's get away fats. I still love my V8's and I miss them but the MPS3 has been a great car and it's coming close to being the longest time I've held on to a car which is 26months normally lose interest within 2 years and want to move on, the SLR5000 i had for 4 years which is the longest I've own one car. I'm now looking for a new car once the building game picks up again but will keep the MPS3 I have so much fun with it that there is no urge to get rid of it........


    LS1 motors were 220,230,255,260 Kw at the fly wheel my MPS3 is around 243kw at the fly wheel now in a light body with just as much NM. Who would have more fun !!!!!!! I have had some runs wit 307kw HSV's and stay with them using a lot less fuel, 55ltr tank and average 550k's a tank each week???????

    I haven't driven a 3 MPS but i love my 6. My ex was a V8 man and he loved driving my car too. He even comented that he didn't expect it to be that good and how much fun it is to drive. I am a car enthusiast and appreciates a good car when i see one.

    At the end of the day they are two completed different cars and both are fun in there own ways. If i could afford it i would have a new camaro with a 2900 harrop blower on it , along with a rotary too lol! I would never get rid of my mps though, love her too much!
