I think your only aloud to do it in VN's becuase they came out in 1988 with the VL's. if you do it with a VR/VS it won't pass emissions as it is a later car with an earlier engine (HAS TO BE AN EARLIER CAR WITH LATER EMISSIONS IE: NEWER ENGINE NOT OLDER), i think!!!!

It is legal, VR's run the same emissions ADR. A friend of mine is putting an RB30 into a VR ute very soon now. 1997 is when things changed. ADR 37/00 Runs from the start of unleaded in 1986 to 1997, you can interchange any engine in that range of years as they all passed the same test. From 1997 -2003 is ADR 37/01 from 2003-2007 ADR 79/00, then from 2007- ADR 79/01.

You can put anything from the ADR the car came with in or anthing newer in. But you can not put say a motor From the 80s that was ADR 27a 27b or 27c in :)

the japanese 3.0 is pretty tough, but I would only do it with the turbo as well, I dont see the point if its NA unless you're a real fan of the motor.

It's a tested and proven motor that can make & handle decent power without heaps of money spent. - plus there is great aftermarket support and plenty of off the shelf go-fast bits available.

:p
how many 10 sec/300kw+ rb30 powered VL's are there?

and how many 10sec/300kw+ buick v6 powered VN+?


The v6 development is getting there, though - it seems to have come alive a little bit in the last few years.
