    I though that the auto VY does at least 8.7, 0-100.
    Yeah ive driven a VZ auto exec and yeah doesnt have much going got it aye, compared to the VY's.

    good post, interesting to see the vy will outrun the sv6 over a quarter mile!
    and thats just stock, throw on a few mods on a vy v6 and your fairly secure in beating later models

    That info is pretty interesting. I got a modified VY and someone I know has a sv6 ute (both manual). His has an headers and cat back. Should be interesting to put em side by side.

    hey guys, interestin read this thread, love the vy s packs and ss's. I've got an sv6 and im honestly not being biased but my auto sv6 is clearly faster than my counsins vy s auto, standing start, rolling.. whatever we've tried it, he is with me till about 60 or 70 from standing but as soon as mine gets up round that 5-6k rpm in first gear it goes ahead and he never regains. But thats just my experiences with it, also the 175 alloytec vz's feel more like the ecotec in terms of power and speed. :)

    I reckon the VY V6 Ecotec feels more torquey then the VZ 175kw, don't know about the 190kw Alloytec version though.

    Yeah man, the VY manual and auto feels alot more torquey than the VZ 175kw, though i havent driven a manual VZ 175 only auto. Though never will cause they didnt make the exec VZ 175 with manual trans did they ?

    Yeah Ive got to agree there. 190 v 152+ kw. I reckon all the SV6s that raced STANDARD ecotecs were not trying hard at all.

    nah they didnt make the exec manual, but all the utes (until 07 i think) had the 175/172kw and u can get them in manual so u could see from one of them if u could get the chance to drive one. Also, the vy v6 still feels more punch off the line than even the 190kw :)

    190kw does not necessarily add up to winning a race. The ecotec is known for their torque, especially low down. Even if the alloytec has a higher maximum torque and kw, if it rapidly peaks and drops then it will only perform in a small rev range. Ectotec had a good torque spread.

    It is a marketing game for manufacturers - "mine produces more than yours" - but that doesn't mean everything.;)

    Well put. It's not out right power that makes you quick either, you could be at a race meet and have 400hp and run slower that the guy next to you with 300hp. No point having the power if it doesn't get to the ground when you NEED it.

    prime example: new toyota aurion
    big claims of the 200kw with good economy.
    dunno where the 200kw is, think it might be in the glovebox, cos theres a guy who cruises around in one reguarly, with an exhaust, lowered etc, challenges anyone at any set of lights, ive beaten him (easily), also saw him lose to a hilux.

    they don't come in manual, VY was the last Executive (new name Omega) to come out with manual factory option.

    You know how quick those new 4.0L V6 (Prado engine) are!!! I drove a dual cab 4.0L V6 Manual, because of the weight and 180kw's of power, that thing will give a GENIII a good run.

    i know, those things do move!! lol but giving a gen3 a good run is a bit optomistic don't ya think? :) Closer to A 4.0l ba/bf or an sv6 vz/ve i reckon..
