seeing that motor in your vr is from America they should be a direct fit man. Even try zzperformance.com for parts

no, the American listed items are for the GN series motors which have a different compression height and use shorter rods then we do. they will only fit if you use there pistons with there rods, but they are heavy which means you will require a heavy metal balance job on your crank shaft which is very costly

Mace is doing a group buy for forged pistons to suit our V6 using our rods. if your interested.... http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...-group-buy-forged-pistons-suit-vn-vp-v6s.html
