"try hard"??? How?

Seems to me to be the logical engine to replace the POS that they came out with!

there is one of those running/wheel spining around wellington. it has an RB26DETT with a RB30 sump on a 25T box into a V8 non lsd diff running on 19inch rubber. very funny to watch does burnouts in 3rd and 4th gear never seen it try in 5th. first time i saw it it had the standard gearbox in it :eek: that didn't last long. has a lovely gold paint job.
god is just an imaginery friend for grown ups

ok Bill_G....
just for you. heres my point

its a holden with a gtr engine, while quite possible an absolutly brilliant logical upgrade its still a holden,

the owner would get s@#t from GTR owners and Holden owners alike.

Basically its just wrong in my opinion.

VL's are really good cars , they are lighter than a nissan and there are several that run 9's on the quarter ...
Would it be ok to use just the head on the rb30 then ?
Its probably the only Holden I like , but im not single minded about cars makes , I just like anything that goes fast and stops fast and goes around corners fast ...
Even fast GT-Rs arn't that fast to me ..considering how much they cost ..

When you consider that to get any decent amount of power out of the RB30, you need to change half the engine......

u pussy assess, ;) stop ur arguing children. everyone has a different opinion and likeling to different cars, if the vl owner has loved and is happy with what he has done, then good for him, WAY TO GO, as long as the owner is happy and luvs his car then its all good
