    VR s2 Acclaim/VK IS GONE :(
    hello,
    my mate has a 186 blue motor that i might be buying off him and it makes a light buzzing sort of sound.
    i know that his diff and clutch are worn out because he does burnouts so could that be it?
    i'm aski9ng because he said he would give me the motor for $30 as is or $50 with it fixed. so i just wanted to know if he is just trying to rip me off 20 bucks or if i should get him to fix it?
    also how hard would itbe to get a vk rego'd with a 186?
    it has a stroked 186 in it now (234ci) and it has been rego'd with that motor so if i took it to the pits would they think its the 234 motor?
    i'm in canberra btw.
    Tankyou, Pat:bow:

    its illegal to put anything older than a black motor in a VK cause of the emissions. your thing says you have a VH vacationer you could put the 186 in that i'd say:thumbsup:

    Well for starters there was never ever a blue 186. They are only red. Sounds like its been painted blue.

    for starters, SL/ENUT is right, theres no such thing as a blue 186... The pits are never going to assume you have a stroked six, and if you can pick up a red 186 / blue 173 whatever it is, is $20 difference much a concern if it has a slight noise that'll only cost him $20 bucks to fix???

    You could always make your own blue 186 by fitting a blue 173 crankshaft to a blue 202 block using 186 pistons. But seriously if your getting a 234 stroker for $50 bucks your getting one hell of a bargain no matter what condition its in.
