    Does anyone know if you can fit a wh statesman supercharged v6 engine to a Vr ute? I can get the complete statesman for $500.00 but don't wanna waste my money if it won't fit without major mods. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

    Yeah will fit without too many dramas. You keeping the Super 6 auto or going manual? Going manual will require having the crank dowelled for the manual flywheel.
    Bit of wiring work but you have a doner car for the loom so that shouldn't be too bad. Just need a decent fuel pump to run it all.
    Someone else with first hand knowledge should hopefully chime in. :)

    Wiring,ecu/memcal & headers are main things you'll need to do research on.

    There are ways around it but comes down budget & what parts you can scavenge off a vs model.

    vs supercharged statesman would have been easiest swap if kept auto as flywheels/flexplates balanced to each engine.
