RB30 engine with low Ks. If you cant find one then the ecotec will be best.
Rb30 have more performance parts available then the ecotec.

What he said.
RB30 is old and small. It was marginal in a VL anything heavier and you're shooting yourself in the foot.

3.8ltr at minimum.

I'm pretty sure you can't put an RB30 into a VP, because the engine is older than the VPs
