How many 6 cylinder motors came out of the Factory in the VK commodore?

Or was it only the 202 Red Motor?

thanks for the replys.

I thought the injection option was left until the VL motor? was there many problems with the injected VK motors?

also
the 308's were/are a tough engine?

The VK was the first entirely Aussie built car with an electronic fuel injection system, unfortunately they used it in conjunction with the 202. As for problems I am not sure, never owned one, but many members on here have, or have had them and know them inside and out and I'm sure they will give you their opinion. Alternativley you can do a search and you will probably get quite a few hits.

If you do the right things to them, the 308 is a solid and robust engine. They are not bad stock also IMO, albiet down on grunt.

Haven't heard any widespread complaints about them, seen a few of the injection setups put on older 202's.

308, can't go wrong. Easy to get power out of, though an injected 304 conversion is relatively simple.

efi 202 torana, vk project car!
Well in my opinion I loved the old injected 202! Standard they got good throttle response and pretty quick (for an old engine that is) but as far as modifying the efi 202 performance wise can be a real head fuc. Hence why I'm doing things like v6 conversions and about to start an injected v8 conversion. Any more questions just fire away :)

Compared to any of the other standard motors in a vk! Efi is way better off the line then carby.
