    Will a VZ SS auto bolt straight up to a VT Calais with the ls1 or do I have to make some mods?

    Thanks mate! The 4 speed auto is fine but the 6 speed will improve fuel economy and top end.

    I don't know much about this but I would have assumed that the ECU would need changing or programming to cope with the 6 speed box.
