VY II SS
Hi all,

I am thinking of putting a cam like darkrayne's old vy (228/230) with 4 into 1 headers, hiflos, exhaust, OTR into my VY SS II but I am also considering it might be smarter to wait till I get back from overseas (6 months time) and upgrade to the VE so I can have the L98 heads and a car with less kms.

VY SS II has 105 000 kms and is in good condition.

I have not driven a ve ss yet to compare but I have driven the sv6 and to be honest I don't really like the gear box which I assume is a TR-6060. Now I know alot of people will jump on the T-56 haters band wagon but I don't mind the t-56 at all.

What would you do?

i personally would wait to get a ve as it will be easier to get power out of a L98 compared to a ls1

i know someone who has a stock ssv with a tune and they have 262rwkw nothing done except a tune and to get that in a ls1 would take a full exhaust, otr and maybe more (not 100% sure)

VE Weighs a good 300kg more then a VY or VZ too, renders the extra power redundant. Unless you just want to have a tug over a dyno slip.

VY II SS
Is that a typo?

VY SS I 1600kg
VY SS II 1658kg (used to say 1645 has been updated since
i bought the car I researched the model for 3 months prior)

VE SS 1770kg
VE SSV 1790kg
(kerb weights)

Or is my source wrong:

redbook.com.au

Where did you get this number?
