at low boost maybe 5-6psi, i would reccomend bigger fuel system, ems, stronger box, diff, brakes etc... prebably better off to buy a turbo

it gets kinda complicated, even at low boost u might find ur box slipping and fuel could be a bit lean at the top end.

as nugget sed buy a turbo, or a turb motor and doa swap

Top end power it might aid it revving out a bit quicker, but in the process you'll loose bottom end something shocking.

from a hi-flow cat? i disagree with that one totally, there's no sense in it, a larger exhaust will do that but wen ur exhaust is already bigger a bigger hi-flow cat will do nothing but good 4 a car

Maybe if the car is turbo and needs the gasses flowing out as quick as possible, but in an n/a pussbox it'd sound crook and flow too easy imo.. Everybody knows by now that I think hi-flow cats are a waste of money.

Looking at doing the XF throttle body mod to my VL, was wondering what are the little mods needed to make it work?

if ur car can rev out easier, that means u got more low end, cause it takes low end to get to ur revs quicker, unless u mean revving out only at the top, if u know wot i mean, lol

bludykiwi, its been dun over so much, but i'll hav a stab at it n e wayz.
- you need a flange from manifold to the tb (bigger at the tb end obviously)
- you need to modify your intake duct cause it'll end up too long
- you need a shorter throttle cable, i think the vk v6 one is a good length (but you might get away with bending the metal piece back that the cable is screwed onto)
- you need to modify sumtin with the tps to hook it up (im not sure exactly what though)
- you need an xf tb, lol

you'de probably wanna pay attention to what series it is (s1 or s2) one is bigger than the other and one is harder to get the tps working on, and also pay attention to the condition of the spring, if the spring has gone really weak the tb will stay open a bit and you'll end up with a high idle speed, not very nice at all!

can sum1 pls make a propper tutorial on how 2 do it properly, sum1 that has done it

da reeper, do u know of any rb30's bored + stroked out to 3.5L? i've only heard of 3.3 and i thought that was the maximum. The reason people dont do it is there probably arent any kits and most people hav no clue how 2 calculate everything to do it custom. But if i ever got tha dosh i wil stroke her out

I think the reason people don't do it is because its a waste of money- It's been shown already that for the cost, you could slap on a little charger and kick its ass.

Basically as far as bang for your buck goes its down the bottom, and I really wouldn't consider it unless it was part of a long chain of mods.. Which to most people, is pointless, when you weigh up the costs. and consider forced induction.

wel i like the idea of stroking then supercharging, cause that way i'de hav a gutsy low revving rb engine, which there aren't that many of. The reason i choose that over a quik high revving turbo is cause i dont liek the idea of revving the engin out 2 much and would rather find more power down the bottom for every day driving, also no lag and instant boost wherever u want it is wot u get with supercharger

Okay Ive gotta say this - I never liked commodores at all - They were all the same to me - just average family cars. That was untill My friend began modifying his 1989 VL Berlina, The Looks, And comfortble interior turned me onto the car, but... There was one other thing - The smoothness and power that was able to be extracted from the RB30E - Something that is often overlooked by the VL Turbo Boys...

Dont get me wrong, Im all for turbocharging... Im just trying to state that going all out on a turbo may not be the way. For instance once we rebuilt the engine from the VL we were amazed at the power that it had, And were easily beating VS 5ltrs and 220kw Monaros. So yeah...

Anyway Apart from the usual mods - Ive heard Advancing the timing has good results - anyone tried it?

The engine in the turbo's is exactly the same pretty much, has the same smoothness, etc, just has a dirty big turbo strapped on the side.

Belive me i can vouch for that. Mine is supercharged and im glad i didn't go turbo. When i was putting it on i was kicking my self the whole time cause i really wanted a turbo.......mainly for the blow off sound hehe, but now i wouldn't go back because yess its got heaps of power and ytes it does make the sickest supercharger winding sound ive ever heard!!

There are programs that can estimate how much power you can roughly expect. Qtr Jnr will estimate the 1/4 mile and there are others for power as well. I just can't remember the names. There is also a device called the Moroso power calculator available from good (ie, not supercheap or autobarn!) performance workshops.

That is what I run at willowbank with a stuffed auto and no extractors. I'd say thats about right for a stocker. Mine had 350,000ks and still went pretty good.

Ive got a cold air intake on mine.
Got a short piece of 100mm pvc and traces the circle on the bottom of the airbox. usinga keyhole saw i cut the circle out of both the airbox and the wheelarch. To teh end of the pvc i attached a 45 degree bend. Over the end of that i put the mesh of the top of an old airfilter. This is the perfect size to allow full airflow and still stop little rocks and stuff from entering the airbox. The piping was all painted black so if u wernt looking for it u wouldnt even notice it. Inside the airbox the pipe was secured by 3 "L" brackets i sealed the old hole by taping up the inside of the the old goosneck and left it in its original place. This way it looks totally stock from the engine bay as well. i did notice the bit of extra power but the biggest difference was the sound. It has a much throatier sound now even with the stock exhaust (gutted cat of coarse). next on the agennda is a 2.5 inch straight through with a set of mendrel bent extractors anda k&n panel filter for the air box for that lil bit extra airflow. Another thing i noticed is better fuel efficience so thats something to think about.
