VH LS1
G'day all, I'm looking at doing a LS1 conversion to my VH, I've done a lot of searching but can't find many
specifics on the kit I'm thinking of using.

Has anybody used the V6conversions kit with the custom K-Frame?

3 More questions

What Radiator are people using?

What Diff have other people used?

Any pics of completed conversions? (any conversion kit)

So does anybody know about the V6conversions LS1 kits or any of their other gear?

please info on quality not how expensive a conversion is, I can just search to see how expensive it was 5 years ago.

I looked on V6 Conversions website, doesn't look like they do the Ls1 kits.

Everyone i've seen and know have used Castlemaine rod shop or the link above.

Gotta realise that has to be engineered hence only a few places sell a proper kit, not a dodgy back yard conversion.

They do do kits, the just dont update their website. I think they might be a bit old school in that regard. But reading the current Street Machine today theres a EJ van with one of their conversion kits as a featured car so I don't think they're back yard.

I guess that answers my own question.

They sell a kit designed correctly so you dont have to swap the starter, sounds better than the other options.

I rather swap starter and have the lower motor in engine bay than the other way. Weight would be an issue there.

pretty sure it sits lower as its a custom k-frame with a VN steering rack with linkages to suit, not just a chopped 308 frame. But I will check with them before I order.
