    If you want to supply a VR and a VE Im happy to push em off the cliff :D Oh and the VR is a 3.8L....its a silly question so you get a silly answer.....
    Besides just google the specs and compare..there is no reward for post counts here and feeding trolls is frowned on;)

    VR will win.
    VE is too heavy and then will fault code when chain stretches.

    Plus VR probably had a secret L67 conversion. And then the VE chain stretches.

    My ute with Pacies, exhaust, memcal and LSD would be on par with a VE 3.6. Once my CAI finally arrives I should get extra gains of around another 35-40RWHP. Then it will be a no brainer, VR would win hands down.

    @delcowizzid races an old Buick V6, which puts out huge HP. Can't remember the figures but yeah it would cane a 3.6 DOHC no problems.

    A 3.0 Allotec is 2994cc, or 182.7ci.
    Therefore a VE Omega would be fastest because it is halfway between the mighty 179ci and the even mightier 186ci. :cool:

    Some of us here are old enough to remember that the Buick V6 3.8 being used in the Formula Holden open wheelers. :(

    Those formula Holden motors were cool.

    The original VE omega with the old 4l60e was a slug.

    Oh yeah, that extra displacement makes the VR a sure fire winner.

    Corrected the figures for you
    Once my CAI finally arrives I should get extra gains of around another 7 to 10 RWHP
