This is not a very common conversion yet but I would be putting those mint VN's away in the shed until the parts you need are cheap, Yes he really is on his L plates and built this for 11 grand or so, it also runs 11's on the 1/4 :)

Looks pretty stock hey? even has grandpa reflectors on the mudflaps, but then how come it just pulled 260rwkw?

Lets have a look at the front :whistling

:driving: :w00t: :bow:

Without a question this is my choice for best VN on the planet :)

LS1 VN + WK Grange 0010 + HPW VX SS
They're not 'grandpa reflectors' they're little chrome Holden lions. I've got them on my VN and they look mad.

Right you are though - forget the 5L conversion, go a 5.7L or even a 6L . . .

mmmmmmm a 6L VN would go off. And that engine's not much heavier than the cast iron V6 . . . depending on how long my engine lasts, I might give that particular conversion a go !

the stickers on the back window kinda give the game away.....
good idea though...there was another white vn in another mag with a carburettored LS1 in the engine bay....theoretically not a new idea, but has its merits for sure.

That was the same car, it used to have a carby on it a while ago, so he could get it running right a bit easier, but he has got with the times now and has all the injection stuff back on it
