up to VE ? or do you mean VZ ?? seen as they have the same engine, also my old vl had the same **** that you have done except no pod under guard. and it pulled like 93rwkw on the dyno. i could beat vn's sometimes, dont think i beat a eco tec. lets be realistic lol not really to hard to believe the 5 liter though my mate's old vr six kept up with other mates clapped out vn v8.

I dont have any experience with it, but what about installing thermo fans?
Surely the clutch fan would have to drag some power... or would it just be another 'disconnect power steering' type mod

Haha, I wish i had vid's of the car's ive beaten.. I don't mind really if you dont belive me but i can beat my mates vs 5 speed no worry's.. Dunno what was wrong with your car?

I'd do the quarter mile on dynolicious on my iphone but i doubt anyone would take that seriously. Even though its just as accurate as a quarter mile timer..

But eh, i know how fast my car is thats all that matters haha

agreed.

people do it because it's "cheap" but by the time you do cam, extractors, diff gears, etc you can buy a stock turbo, fit a turbo engine, or bolt on the turbo gear.

It would be easy to turbo a VL for under a grand and you'll go from 130rwhp to 220rwhp

i just did things that are cheap, full exhaust(extractors new cat and 2.25 catback), cai, 18 degrees of timing with pulp, shiftkitted auto and just kept it maintained and running as good as i could.

was quicker then the "average na vl" but still nothing special, kept up with some vs's etc but no way could i "smash" an ecotec or 5L...

unless you had heaps of money and just wanted to test the capabilities of it etc then its just a waste of money doing any more then that except maybe diff gears and manual.

at the end of the day its still slow so just turbo it i rekon

Agreed. n/a 5 speed, extractors, 2 1/4 inch exhuast, cai, 98 fuel.

Slighty quicker/equal to a mates auto VP with the same mods.
Another mate with a stock 5 speed VR just beats me..
Anoooother mate with a 5 speed vs with full exhaust smashes me lol

manual ecu wont work in an auto vl.
theres a guy on the r31 forums that has 237rwhp out of a rb30de but it cost a hell of a lot of money to get to that

They are almost virtually identical. Yes they are interchangable.

If you need to mix a turbo ecu in an NA or vice versa it will need to be reprogrammed. for the injector difference in size. PM if you need help on that.

The only difference between Auto and Manual is the extra control module under the Drivers dash fuse panel for the Jatco transmission.

If converting an Auto to Manual you also must put a loop in the PARK/NEUTRAL safety switch wiring or the car won't start.

when i had my turbo of my vl to clear a rwc. i had genie extractors, hollow cat, 2.5" redback exhaust with the centre muffler changed to something else that was smaller cant remember the brand. standard air box with old filter. turbo ecu and turbo injectors still in. mx7 manual. 3.45 lsd turbo diff. and it beat a ba xr6 ute. but not off the line. passed at about 80.

and before it was turboed, only had pod not boxed, 2.5" redback exhaust still with the redback muffler, mf5 manual. would beat a vs 5 litre up till about 110-120. as i changed to 3rd they'd slowly go past then keep pulling past from there. v6's, no chance they had me straight of the line, maybe up higher? but never tried. put a turbo on and never looked back

has anyone tried a cam on a n/a vl, dus it actually give some good power??
on my old vl i had extractors, stock exhaust with no rear muffler and a cold air intake throguh the wheel arch, and a lsd, and it didnt go too bad, better than standard but i still wanted more power. i was thinking of doing the cam and heads on it but i didnt know how much power it would give it, but i sold that a while ago anyways and im thinking of buying another one and keeping it stock till i get off my p's and then just putting like 20 grand on the engine. but if a cam and heads does something, i might look into it, has anyone tried it??
i was also thinking of a 3 or 4 grand stall and shift kit, and spool diff??
i dont wana put extractors and all that s*** on it coz itl be taken off when i turbo it
personally i rekon n/a's are a waste of time, because i like REAL power but too bad im on my p's, or else i would have been building a vl turbo since the day i got my l's.

i got a cam in mine - i was out at the cruise yesterday - i had people asking me if it was a V8 etc hahaha

I got a MF5, cold air intake under guard with k and n filter, exhaust, extractors, NA crow cam, port/polished head, valve springs, cut valve seats and shaved head - it goes quite well and keeps up with my mates stock Auto VZ SV6 which is 190kw at the motor, i take my car onto some circuit events and in my opinion its worth it as i have another 2and a half years on my p's and want something with a bit of power. Although i wouldnt turboit now and just sell it as NA as it goes that bloody good. Comparitvely to other cars i think it'd run about a mid 15 down the 1/4 mile which is also quite good

it got 270Nm at the wheels on a fairly low reading dyno and 94 kw, although it got 98 stock on the MRHDT dyno at a car show - so the 2nd dyno boviously reads low but to get 270Nm on the lower reading dyno is good and its prob got 20-25kw more than stock although it is geared for torque
