MY9.5 VE SV6 M6
Hello.

I'm getting a VL commodore sedan rolling shell which comes with the auto V6 but isn't in the car and am hoping to put a V8 out of either a VR/VS in it with the 5 speed box.

I just wanted to know how difficult/expensive this would be or is it considerably easy/in-expensive.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers :D

from what i remember vl/vn/vp/vr were pretty much straightfoward bolt ups, but the vs needed a little bit of modification to fit into the vl front end...

nothing a little bit of patience and a few mates can't overcome.

good luck with the conversion mate
