    VX Series 2 SS - potential project

    Could go the route of a 383 stroker LS1 mate, never actually tried one myself but would imagine it would be a lot more torque than a stock LS1 as long as you dont go too overboard with your cam specs

    Won’t hurt to try it mate although if your lifters are gone the only real fix is replacing them, nulon lifter free is the additive you wanna use also have you cleaned the afm lifter screen thing under the oil pressure sensor?

    Vy ss running rough

    I’m thinking it sounds like the crank angle sensor going out intermittently but that’s just a guess, could try replacement and see what happen?

    Manuel transmission in VE V6 Calais V

    You do realise theres a heck of a lot more to it then simply dropping in a manual transmission don’t you? There’s a lot of things that have to be changed to make it all work seriously you’d be better off selling yours and buying a manual car

    New VF commodore

    I’m no tuning expert but 102 octane in an sv6? What a waste of race fuel and I bet you couldn’t physically feel any difference when actually driving the thing

    Car keys

    Yes agree that does sound a bit strange having to have 2 keys, the Holden stealership will rip you off and as above you can definitely get a new key for less than $600

    PCE Chevy LS3 1.7 Ratio Aluminum Pedestal Mount Roller Rocker Arm Set Black

    does it make the engine rev a bit more freely also? Probably not worth it just for 10hp odd

    PCE Chevy LS3 1.7 Ratio Aluminum Pedestal Mount Roller Rocker Arm Set Black

    Tailshaft question: Converting Auto to Manual

    Can’t help with the tail shaft question but the std manual diff ratio is 3.45 I’d think your auto diff will be 2.92 and you could go to something like a 3.9 if you want more response also I’d think you would need the manual ecu for your conversion? Could be wrong on that and you’ll probably need...

    interior trim

    In my case it had only come away at the back a little bit so I just used some spray adhesive that I already had to glue it back up and seems to be holding well so no need to get it done just yet but will one day

    interior trim

    I think he means redo the glue every 12 months as it’s a bandaid fix not a proper repair, I did this with my ve and seems to be holding up well

    Knock sensor

    As in its cranking over but not starting?
  28. vr304


    If all you want is a bit more sound then a decent cat back exhaust would be the way to go, even better again a full system with extractors as well

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Seems a bit strange your having these issues after you had your new heads fitted? You sure the guy that fitted them hasn’t damaged something (electrical) in the process?

    2006 VE SS Low Oil Pressure

    Apparently it’s reasonably common, almost a good enough excuse to cam it up while your in there checking it
