    Try a cold air intake manifold insulator, MACE who are forum sponsors sell them. Other than that maybe air filter or cold air intake.

    More fuel = more expensive in the long run.

    They are actually very good on fuel around town and you still have the power there when you do put your foot down. A v6 you really do have to wring there neck to get anywhere hence you do use alot more fuel to actually get there. There is a formula around some where for this.

    Don't want to sound like a bitch, but a VE V6 uses less fuel then a V8. Otherwise Holden wouldn't be selling them. I get 6-7l/100km from pakenham to melbourne everyday.

    u cant put performance next to economy.

    once u start playting witht he tuning of a motor, i dont think its eco0nomy is gonna stay low.

    buy an 8, its the smarter choice.

    Well he did say he wants more HP out of the SV6, not whether I should buy a V8 or V6. Some mods like exhaust, extractors, CAI and tune will give you better economy and abit more power.

    Yes you are right he did, but people need to realise there is no point buying an sv6 to make fast. It wont happen

    Iam considering a Capa supercharger for mine, it will really increase the torque. Iam thinking around 220-230 rwkw. I remember when my typhoon had this amount of power and its nice for a daily driver. I also changed my diff to a manual SS its 3.45 I think- made a huge difference.
    I too could have bought an 8 but I wanted to try something different.

    I would say with the right mods a V6 could be quite fast.

    They can be but it costs ALOT more money. An S/C sv6 is still pretty slow over the qtr anyway. Ya just need to make your mind up before you buy as to why you want it

    this is just another thread where people obviously have no valuable advice to give so instead they just add a smart comment to sound like they superior when really they just have no idea... "want power buy a V8". The OP asked how to get more power out of his SV6. At no point was this "buy a V8 or a V6". If you don't have anything important to add then shut up. (this is not directed at everyone just an open opinion)

    To answer the OP. AirHammer makes a great intake for the VEs, that would be a good place to start. Then look at a manifold insulator...MACE sells them on here just jump into their forum. Extractors and an exhaust IMO 2.25" gives a very nice note. If you wana go down the big power increase road then look at charging it.
