Hi everyone, this is my first post here.
The title really says it all.
yes i believe it did.
im pretty sure it was an option coz the supercharged version uses more fuel
but yes it was a factory option on the calais
Thanks for the replys guys. I knew the supercharger was an option for most of the 6cyls but I'm pretty sure the VT Calais S2 came standard supercharged right?
Also, does the VT Calais supercharged models have the supercharged badge on them?
yes they have the badge on the side under the side indicators, but im pretty sure supercharged was still just an option with the series 2, coz u still see a few of them that arent supercharged, and i think it was only an option with the calais, statesman and caprice, and maybe the berlina and the s version, the rest it wasnt an option im pretty sure
ok i maybe wrong, on the vt series 2, was the only 1 that supercharged is standard, on vx it was option again, it was an option on berlina and s models
No.. it was only ever an option.. on any model... I don't beleive any standard model has been standard supercharged (excluding, hsv, inters, etc).
i thought that 2, but then i just researched it and it was standard only on the series 2 calais though
Redbook has an n/a VTII Calais listed..
i was looking on the nrma site and others i found searching vt calais II on google
Ok looks like you are right :S dunno why there is an n/a one there..
Prob came out standard s/c to compete with the GEN3 that came out on the VTII..
yeh i dunno, i hate it when sites contradict each other
anyway it does look like it was standard on the s2 calais
Yep i think you are right...
Hey guys I think I just found out the right answer.
It was standard on the VT Calais S2 but you could delete the supercharger and save $1000.
Thanks for the help though.
I have a VTII Calais and unfortunatly its not supercharged =(. Some come out of the factory supercharged some dont, not sure on the ratio but its not standard
im guessing what antseh said is probably right, they came factory supercharged, but if u didnt want the charger u could save a grand off it
In fact yes the Series II Calais came standard with the supercharger and in fact the basic Ecotec engine was an option upon ordering it from the factory. Why you would want to order a standard 6cyl engine is beyond me but it was an option and many people who were afraid of the supercharger did order a standard enginje package. The only engine options were the standard Ecotec and the V8 engine!!
How do you tell if its series I or II? Trying to work out what myne is.
You can tell by rims and the series II badging, not sure of interior. Also clear side indicators, but you see that on every commodore.
The VTII Executive Commodore had a option of Supercharged, I recall the brochure and have seen one before, not sure about VX, I guess not popular. Its an option for Calais aswell.
I Own the 2000 series 2 calais, & my car is just stock V6 ....
The supercharged cars were an option when buying it new form the Holden dealer...
I beleive it was an extra $6k on the rrp of a stock calais v6 & they were retailing @ $54k in 2000
