vy lumina v6 A4
NAME: Matt
MODEL: 1992 Vp Commodore Wagon(executive)
COLOUR: Royal blue top and quick silver with a light prizmotec coat on the bottom
BODYKIT: Standard Vp with modded vn grill
ENGINE TYPE: 3.8ltr v6
ENGINE MODS: none, Just a T70 turbo bolted to it.
POWER: Unsure, hasn't been on a dyno yet.
EXAUST: 3inch dump pipe, standard from cat back with no resinator.
GEAR BOX: Turbo 700 shift kit, Corvette servo.
DIFF: standard lsd, standard 3.08 gears
BRAKES: Standard.
SUSPENSION: Pedders shocks with King spring super lows all round.
INTERIOR: vs dash upgrade, level 3 dash cluster.
OTHER MODS: vs remote central locking with imobiliser key, battery in Back.
FUTURE MODS: 3inch from the turbo back, vs statesman dash and seats, new turbo manifolds with crossover under the back of the motor. Then when this v6 breaks I am going to put a rb30et in instead.

It had a T3/T4 on it First but that didn't end to well, so the turbo is a bit bigger now. Pics on 2nd page.

yeah thats the plan soon. but probly a rb26 head, or i might put another v6 in it and sell it and buy a vl.

yeah mean vn i wanted to put the s2 vs stato dash in, But this one came along at $100 for the whole car minus motor and box so it will do for now, and i have the bcm from the vs in it.
much better than the ugly vp dash.

Looks like you've broken a few V6's. They are pretty tough motors, but when pinging starts it can kill any engine.
