    Aftermarket headers/extractors vr commodore

    ok so I've heard that from factory the VRs came with headers as stock. Would changing them to aftermarket ones do much to the sound and fuel economy or would it just be pouring money down the drain. All i want to do is have it sounding nice by also slapping on a hi flow cat and improve fuel...

    Hi all, My MY06 VZ ute has a tantrum at the petrol station occasionally when I put fuel in and threatens to stall, or sometimes if it’s been in the sun all day (like if it's parked outside work). If it does actually stall it will start the second time. Happens less if you feed her a tank of 98...

    L67 Fuel Consumption

    I have an l67 with 2 cylinders reading 60psi. I'm just wondering if 2 down cylinders and random misfiring on the 2 would be the cause of high fuel consumption? Averaging around 17l per 100?

    L67 Injectors

    L67 running rough and just realised I had l36 Injectors in lol. What symptoms would this cause due to the fact it isn't tuned to use l36 Injectors? Would it explain struggling to start/not starting and running really rough with lack of throttle response? Thanks
