vs ute
We have a vr ute with a v6 in it, we can get our hands on vt manifold and plenum and everything, is this a worth while thing to do?
any other bits we need? gains that can be had?

to my understanding it was a major difference from the older style v6 to the ecotec's is this true?

also just looking at getting an old vr engine to build up on the side and we have a twin turbo kit at work we will most likely bolt onto it once its all done, is it a wise idea to build the vr bottom end and heads or are we better off getting an ecotec?

The VS is an ecotec, not so much a better engine, just a bit more economical. Better flow through the heads.
