Kia ora friends.
Minitrucks have always held a special wee place in my heart. Especially when they are from my own hood (Kapiti Coast yee rep rep G).
This is HEL200.
If you can't tell from the pictures - it's had some very serious work done. With 4 inches removed from the roof, a 2.5 inch body drop, 1 inch removed from the sills and shortened a total of 51" in the tray. That's right Fifty one inches..... that's a lot of inches.... After all this work - it's a struggle to recognise it as a dirty old mitsi L200....
It's also had a lot of the usual minitruck changes done with Cadillac tail lights warning anyone behind that the anchors are on. Everything's been shaved so it's smoother than a baby's backside. It also runs all the usual airbag set up with big valves and lines for mad slamming action.
Engine wise it's running 4G63T from a VR4. Making about 203hp at 10psi on the dyno which pushes this truck along nicely.
The workmanship on this truck needs to be seen to be believed, it's on another level.
Moral of the story? You should buy this truck and girls will love you. Lynx effect? pssshhh nar that's bullshit. HEL200 effect? yeah that shit's for real.
