Go and get yourself a v8 mate. I've upgraded myself, my vh use to have a work 6's but now it's got a V8. I'm loving every minute! Nothing beats sound of a v8.... Jason

yeah these days you should be easily able to do an EFI 5L conversion for $2500, especially if you do the work yourself
even completely stock it's going to have a lot more power than a stock 308 carb engine, plus driveability & fuel economy on it's side

efi 202 torana, vk project car!
+1 on the efi v8. I did the v6 conversion n it was a lot better then the efi 202 I had. But cost around the same amount to do the v8 as would be to do the v8. Either are gonna be a lot better then the old girl. N pretty simple to do
