.. the New Inventors 'Darwin' award winner :p
yeah... and confusing as
Holden call BOTH them HFV6... High Feature V6
.. no way that! VE wheels match the (larger) stud size
plus how the heck do you get them to stay in the VE hub? (which has a 14mm hole)
$200 install.. for a 20 minute Job? (and no, the exhaust does not need removing)
if you were here (Melbourne) I would suggest a chat with...
.. its an optical illusion.
The actual exhaust pipes are the same .. but have very large round chrome 'outlets'
in the rear bumper. You have to...
... ONLY the internals, the tin cover and some yokes for 10 bolt HQ-WB and VB-VK are the same
axles, axle tubes, suspension pickup mounts,...
straight? .. not with a V8!
air cleaner gets in the way.. or you cannot close the bonnet if you install it to go
over the carb air cleaner
yup.. Penrite Pro is the only stuff that should go a Tremec box
had it in my VX SS, now have it in my HSV Clubbie
the joiner is splined ..for starters so you have to get it lined up
and taking the bolts out makes that easier
take your VIN and build plate number and give it to HDT to check
ps... we have today 800+ genuine Brock VKs when they only built 501 :p
.. won't fit
is the simple answer
the booster/master is in the way if you go towards the firewall
and the tray is in the way if you aim it...
mate of mine (we went thru school together) with that exact car ....
(he still works for Holden now.. after the shutdown)
.. it is the BASE offering from Holden now
it is not prefect but the features for the money are good
I am buying lots at work.. as the reps VF...
yes... and I think HSV were being modest with their SV engine ratings
my wagon made 290rwkw (or was it 292?.. not 100% on the number) on a car...
.. not in wagons
sit down .. and match feature for feature
think you will find the HSV wins .. by a nose
ps.. I am biased owning a R8 SV HSV Clubbie Tourer
yes.... sort of
you are forcing in oil (to push the air out) ... 'force' priming the pump if you like
like this .. see pic below(there are several different designs)
note .. the only bit missing in the pic is the brass adaptor (that goes into the...
I can prime a pump.. in about 2 mins (remove sender, screw in plunger adaptor and squeeze lever)
and am guaranteed oil pressure .
I call BS on that comment... for 40 years I have been doing that, prime the pump via the sender ( via 1/2 litre in the oil plunger)
that 'short' link pin is VB thru VL fitment (as it goes thru the bottom control arm to the sway bar)
You MUST use the long ones with the upper...
go to your local dealer, they will make sure you get the right ones
.. I use the genuine Holden ones on my race engines - head sump timing cover water pump etc
(now you cannot get ACL Race anymore)
I use Speco...
Raven make a great range of them.. all different widths and thicknesses
.. front spoiler?
off a VH SS sedan
30 months and 60k as far as I know now ....
if the original factory pads had anti squeal backing shims
they MUST be refitted (lots leave them off aftermarket pads)
If they have been fitted,...
hard?.. very !
plus you destroy the bearing
what do the numbers/letters say?
.. different bolts to std or factory Brembos
and I know you can buy the HSV front caliper bolts from your Holden dealer
( I got a set when I...
.. try the Commodore wreckers in Roberna ST Moorabbin
they have a fair bit of early bird stuff
.. after the rear suspension collapsed on my 2015 Tourer
(and neither HSV or Holden were interested warranty wise)
I stuck a set of Bilsteins with...
.. why e85, you can't use it is most cars
my HSV (and all the co cars at work) have a BIG no E85 sticker on 'em
I use genuine' SNOWFOAM' first followed
by Meguairs ULTIMATE 'wash and wax'
Superb result each week.. and then once a
month, don't chamois dry...
$4k drive in /drive out for v8 is ok price
just had to do a v6 box on the reps EVOKE cars (which died at 140,000)
$4800 drive in /drive out
physically the same from memory
no.. not mine
it is a full floater Salisbury
bwahahaha..... urban myth
the only thing they have as stock standard over the earlys is a slightly
better exhaust flow ... and a nicely arranged...
there of course is the little known 'race car crash' that Phil Brock had (on the Tulla)
car written off (chassis scrapped) and Splitpin in...
