VY S/Charged S-Pack
Hi guys,

First post on the website, been doing a bit of reading, website is great.

I have just bought a VY series1 Supercharged V6 S pack, and I’m thinking about doing a pulley and rockers mod upgrade from www.v6supercharged.com.au.
I’m just wondering how the fuel will vary once done? As it is a family car most of the time (when the wife’s driving), so I don’t want it to suck a heap.
Also would anyone know how much quicker it would be over 0-100?
Anyway it’s about a $1400 upgrade. You can do the pulley upgrade for around $600 then do the rockers later, which might be the way to go.
Just wondering what other people’s thoughts are?

Personally, i would drop the rockers on first, let more air/fuel into the cylinders, making her breathe a hell of a lot more which u'll notice a major improvement, then boost it later with the pulley..

Hi blownmotor12c,

I guess you are using premium, but which octane level? 95 or 98?
On 98 I can get 800km out of a tank now.
