VS Series2 Executive Wagon
Hi all , I am wondering if any one can shed some light on how to identify what model had what prefix to the engine number.
I have just bought a motor that I am told is a VT Ecotec and I will be fitting to my VS series II, the VS eng no. is prefixed with VH and the motor I just bought is prefixed with VA. On the back of the block is cast 3800 series II.
Short of buying a VT manual can anybody tell me what function the pipe from the LHS exhaust manifold does and is there an equivalent function on the VS.
Thanks Don....

Cant help with the pipe info - but the prefixes are correct VH = VS/VT car and VA = VX and started around VA 056800 in Sep 2000
