Well, base it on these 2 things:

Do you want a car that will sound like a fart on steroids?

or

Do you want a car that sounds tough as nails?

stock standard there pretty much on par with one another performance wise, the s/c v6 is better for quick upgrades as you can simply change the injectors, pulley and memcal tune but revs alot harder than a v8 meaning one with higher km/s will be worn out more than the 5 litre with the same amount of kays. with the heavier stato i would go v8. drove a vs stato s/c v6 and a vx s/c v6, the heavier body wasnt well suited to the v6 and felt a bit hows your father, went alright but had to plant the foot to go quick

5 litre
If u geta 6, ppl will give u ****. :)

What exactly do u want out of the car?

Performance : My barge goes alright. Gets from a-b, its got some go in it. Its more of a cruiser than a race car like some other cars out there.

reliability Mine has been well looked after. I service it. Nothing has broken and ive had it for about 18months.

Power upgrades the usual, extractors, exhaust and so on.

As i said, what do u want out of the car?

minux im not worried about the sound of the motor.

main thing being power. like if i spend 5k on both motors. which one will yeild the best results.



also does anyone know about the gearbox?

im guessing they would both run the same box. but if the l67 runs the v6 gearbox it wont last very long

depends on how you spend each 5 grand, i could put a DIY supercharger kit on my 5 litre and blow a s/c v6 running the same amount of boost

For 3k you could comfortably have the V8 laying down over 200 na rwkw at the treads, and still have big sacks of torque down low. I can't see any reason why you wouldn't want it that way :)

The L67 is a good motor, but the superchargers can get a little harsh on the pocket book when things start to break later in life.

Car for car money for money the super 6 will be faster (but it's rubbish, mostly because it sounds horrid :) ). I wouldn't buy one but if your only goal is making the most power for the cheapest the super 6 has a *slight* advantage

lc torana. vn v8. ke30.mazda 1300.
go the 5 litre .. has more going for it in my opinion and with a few upgrades goes alright.

and will probably be a little bit more reliable and abit better to move the stato around with

Having a 5L, i'd say got the L67. More torque in stock form, and a simple pulley change and afew other mods have them eating modded 5Ls.

Sounds is the only reason to choose a 5L over a L67
