How would you go putting an RB26DETT into a VL? Has it been done?
I'm not gonna do it, but would it work?
Or Stick with the RB30, then bolt on a T25G and some other big laggy thing??
:thumbsup: :)

has it been done? only like a million times... i say stick with the rb30 but piss the turbo off and supercharge it, you dont have to do something because 20,000 other ppl have vl turbo's, be different... my mates old man had a vl wagon with s/c rb30 in it, was off nut... plus no lag!

all the rb series motors will fit in the vl with work, it is actually common to see a diffrent turbo motor in the vl but the twin turbo set up on the rb26 would have to possibly be alterd to fit,
a vl calais that was on the last jc crusie in sa but wasnt twin turbo if im correct, cant rember three days ago lol

Meh, I'll stick 2 early commy V8's, mates!
Then perhaps supercharge one if bordom flies over my house;)
I know a guy who put a 5.7 SL1 into an LX torana, then Supercharged it. So much to go wrong though:(

VL = Cop Magnet:( even my old gramps get pulled over @ night, until boys in blue see white hair:(
So every one go out and spray your hair white;)

my suggestion would be to take the RB26dett head and all other bolt on goodies, and starp that onto your RB30.

This too has been done before, but you dont have to worry about the fu*#ing around of changing numbers, and you'll have a 3L twinn cam twin turbo, instead of a measly 2.6L ! .................LOL
This is capable of legal 9's all day !

Your call, let us all know how you go !

under 10 requires a roll cage, and gettign rego with a roll cage would not be the easyest
