I just installed a tacho in my S2 VP executive and wanted to know what the rev range is? I took it for a spin and at 4000rpm it sounded like it was screaming! The tacho is set to the 6 cylinder setting........
Yep sounds about right! i thought the exact same thing when i got the tacho in my vk with the VP v6 working, its just the way the old V6 sounds. I dont think ive ever revved it much harder then 4 lol
you dont need to rev it harder than 4grand
but for the op question, my tacho red-lines at 5.5G
you will hear it on limiter. MANGMANGMANGMANG
max torque at 3600, max power at 4800, i dont really understand the difference between power and torque, obviously torque is twisting power but what then what is power.
from the unofficial holden commodore archive:
VN buick motor:
Compression Ratio: 8.5:1
Maximum power: 125 kW @ 4800 rpm
Maximum torque: 292 Nm @ 3200 rpm
VP buick motor:
Compression ratio: 8.5:1
Maximum Power: 127 kW @ 4800 RPM
Maximum Torque: 293 Nm @ 3600 RPM
VR buick motor:
Compression ratio: 9.0:1
Maximum Power: 130 kW @ 4800 RPM
Maximum Torque: 295 Nm @ 3200 RPM
hope this helps!
