Holden commodore VX S Pack
Hey guys,
Iv decided to slow down with spending on my vx s pack and save up for something little less common.
Well while im on my p's im saving up for an 8 cylinder vehicle or to have my ride converted.
Its three years away but im still planning ahead.
So far iv got 3 options
Buy a complete wreck of an SS from the wrecker and have my mate (mechanic) do a straight swap from engine to fuel tank (larger tank).

Or i was thinking of a even hard task of placing a L76 engine into my vx
(full kits on ebay)

Lastly, just save up for a vz with the L76 engine already in.

I would like to hold on to my vx for aslong as i can, so dropping in a v8 would be amazing.


My last question is, can i get the ls1 engine which are in vx ss to sound like this L76 engine?

Thanks guys

if you decide to engine swap go with either the L98 6L or the LS2 6.2 both are better engines than the L76.

But just buying another car with the engine you want is the best choice.

agreed, drop in one of those if your not going with the ls1
btw the l76 is just an ls2
