Sorry boys all good, it was only running on 5 cylinders, one of the spark plugs were faulty, now it ***in boggies:)

just a quick question, that mace engineering place, is it worth getting high ratio roller rockers, they seem expensive??
and bigger throttle..?
people might say differant but bigger throttle body make no differance only makes you think you power...As the opening is bigger....Don't waste your money on throttle body...Been there done that

As far as Mace stuff goes if you want anything I'd just get the spacer between the plenum and inlet manifold they increase low down torque back to about what the Buick has/had sio I understand and they are not that expensive.

VG Ute ecotec/T5 5sp
hey guys jw if any 1 has any info for me , im putting a ecotec into my 5sp vg ute. its a vt ecotec auto motor. ive found a single mass flywheel from the wreckers and its an after market 1 made by exedy. ino the ecotec auto and manual cranks are different coz the manuals us 2 8mm dowel holes to locate the flywheel but im not worried about that just going to use new genuine flywheel bolts from holden. the box im using is the factory T5 from the ute ino it will bolt up to the ecotec coz the vs series 1 used the ecotec with the T5 from factory. any other problems anyone knows about would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys

...the VS and VY had the same 6 cylinder motor. At best you'd have a slightly less tired version of exactly what you've got
