    Hi all, can some one tell me where i can get a full VT workshop manual one that covers every inch of the VT engine body interior and roughly how much $$$$.

    I already have a Haynes manual but it is very basic,any assistance would be great.

    Haynes is good. There's an Ellery's, but it's a piece of shit. Don't even waste your money.

    Just what exactly are you looking to do?

    Supercheap Auto had Gregory's on sale for $32.95 last week but I don't know how long specials go for. I find Gregory's to be very good, but I haven't read any others to be able to compare.

    Gregory's = Haynes

    It's the difference between Ketchup and Tomato Sauce..

    If the gregory's doesn't explain how to do it then you probably shouldn't be doing it.

    Sorry let me rephrase, I love my VTS I just want a manual that has every thing about it, every inch of the car full diagrams and pics, I guess one similar to the ones that Holden mechanics have I know I could probably pic one up from Holden but just want to know if there is one out there that is similar and cheaper.

    i really question how "original" it is for $10

    i have Gregory's one and i think its pretty good.
    has VT & VX, V6, V6S/C & V8

    It may be a copy of the "original" but it would be an illegal copy.
