VL , From 6 2 8 ?
Im currently in the process of trying to find a short motor to put into my vl . What i want to know is what blocks can i use ?
I know i can't use a red or blue motor . I gotta mate who has a vk group a short motor that im thinking of buying . Some say I can use a vk block coz its a black motor . Another bloke told me that it does'nt matter if its a black motor i cant use it coz its outta a older car . can only use same model or newer .
Whats the deal ? does anyone know ? My only other alternative is to buy a new block and pistons from holden .
Loving teh titties..
The vk block is fine as long as you use the vl emmisions gear on it, ie: set it up as per factory.

the emissions ADR's between VK's and VL's changed alot, ie unleaded petrol etc,
v8 into vl
Im going to be using injection etc off a vs . Trying to find a block is starting to be a real head **** . All i can find is vk blocks . and even thats a mission ... and they want a arm and a leg for the bloody things !!!!!!
how much u lookin at spending on the block? theres at vt short motor here...
but then you would need to run vt emmisions gear....(might be the same as vs?)
