it's a junk LED fan from a PC, to keep air circulating as the condensation was really bad. The fan stopped it completely. Wish I had though of it years ago and will definitely either making up a rack of fans for each car or just get those carcoons for even better protection.

Why does it have LEDs ? I am asking the same thing. Turns out you can't get any PC part these days without gay rainbow flashing LEDs all over it. Literally all of it had rainbow LEDs now, motherboards, RAM, fans, cases, HDDs, CPU cooler, video cards, power supplies. It's fucking BS!

Got 2 tyres while one rim gets repaired, yes restoring NOS stuff :lol:

I thought they would be way small on the diameter but they were comparable to 215 60R 15 which I ran for years. Surprising as its 60R vs 50R.

The width was good too, about as wide as the VN/VP body can take.

Also working out the WB placement. I made up these temp "tail pipes" so I don't roast the floor and also to give enough distance behind the WB so the waves moving back and forth can't expose the WB to fresh air.


I am going to get a bunch of tabs which locate on the factory jigging tabs on the T5 so that a standard delphi plug attachment clip goes straight on the tab. But the setup cost isn't worth it so I am going to add a H series middle exhaust mount adapter plate to allow use of H series mounts in place of the shit VN-VS figure 8 rear mounts which break in a matter of minute to a few weeks at best.

So that will have all the laser cut stuff sorted for this and likely future projects and make the setup worth while. At some point I will list the extras for sale here.

Worth noting that the pacemaker comp headers have a custom outlet flange size. 2.3" pipe size and 90mm bolt hole centers.

standard sizes are 86mm, 94mm, and Holden OEM is 104mm I believe.

The 86mm type will fit but its not right, its outer metal is more narrow than the pacemaker ones and bolting it up is funny due to the out of aligned hole spacing.


Here is a comparison. I used one for some tool and had to use a off the shelf 86mm one. The 2 1/4 pipe on the correct pacemaker flange was stretched out on a pipe expander machine at my local mechanic shop. I think it might be something to do with ideal 3-1 collector size on a performance/competition engine being 2.3" and the flanges being expanded to sort of form the transition on the collector to exhaust pipe.

If this is really what they intended it sure is an interesting way to go about it.
Right is pacemaker's custom size and left is the closest standardized size.
