Senator was available with the 185i engine (5L) and optional 215i package (5.7L stroker). GTS was only available with the 215i stoker package. 185i models came with auto or optional 5sp manual, and 215i models came with 6sp manual or optional 4sp auto. VS Grange was available in 185 and 215

And when i first put the motor in i was able to smash the gas with no brake and power skid it to 135 to 140 well thats where the speedo came back to once it gripped up in 3rd !! It was an animal and got me into a fair few sticky situationss, untill i had a bit of valve train failure, due to me not remapping my VQ delco to suit and having it in the limiter too much.. I have finially pulled the motor out and getting it rebuilt with flat tops, cam ect so hopefully it will go a bit faster.. lol

alot of nice examples ....... i intended to buy one of these beasts when i was car hunting but could never find a winner

plus the whole power output on the 5.0 turned me off em , and how much money needs to be pumped into em to get them to move

still a great car though

They are pretty good value these days if you find an unthrashed one, most people are going LS1 when it comes to V8 but a VS Senator still looks and sounds better even if its a bit down on power, you could always get a custom chip and pacemakers or something.

Diff gears, headers, cam, head work and a custom tune. And if you have the cash the intake manifold is next. Either that or supercharge it... probably cheaper and make more power

love the VS GTS and Senator's amazing car.. want one every time i see one.. infact if my plans go well ill be able to buy a senator i got my eye on.. wats the difference bettween the two in the way of the motor and running gear, having the 355 stroker of course... and why has no one put the nices GTS up ever..!
