Yes, there is Someone.
Hamilton, god place, Im up Dargaville haha if ya know where that is =).

Aww nice, Ive got a 165, which is still currently off the road, each mod i do, i want to do 2 more and so on, so just keeping it Work in Progress haha.

As far as I know, mines the only ST165 in the northland region, I know theres a guy with a 3sgte converted ST162 over in whangarei, but thats not the real deal =)

Good to know there are others in NZ who I can get assistence from.

Haha nope not by choice :( , turbo's exhaust wheel shattered while boosting and bits went back up the manifold and into the cylinders. F$%@ed all the cylinders, so its getting bored out and new pistons.

Heres a few pics of my car, although you probably haven't seen it around :D

OOOUCHH, thats gotta be a pain in the wallet, for sure, nah havn't seen int, but looks good, would like to see it in person haha. Rims suit it to, always loved white rims on a black car. Engine bay looks good, very tidy, good job with the rockercover, stock is just so ugly =).

Haha, well save some up and move in, lots of friendly faces around =)
