i bought a disc of egay that seems to be the proper holden factory manuals,cost me $12 and covers vr and vs,v6 and v8. i haven't gone through it completly but from what i have seen,it seems pretty good.
in book form,id go gregorys but do they make a vr/vs v8 book?,i cant seem to find it and the back of the gregorys manual,it lists their other books and theres no vr/vs v8 book?

ellerys is fine if you dont mind spelling errors and HORRIBLE grammer.

i got two of their manuals and they are both pretty good.
my VR - VS ellerys manual is ****. it doesnt even have any pictures of the ecotec in it.

and spelling mistakes make me angry, so i want to burn it to the ground.

Yes the ellerys manual is quite **** is all im going to say, it takes ages to understand wtf its talking about and what bolt to remove lol, most the time i just guess until i have to spend the time to read and understand the manual. only time was when i had to torque up the inlet manifold bolts in the correct order lol

Ive found the gregorys manuals the best,but any of them would be better than none at all.The gregorys also has the best wiring diagrams by far....
