        It's why the vn v6 bay looks so stupid with the huge radiator cowl and 1m long hoses.

          Also didn't the series 1 vn have a different cooling system with steel lines running round the back of the motor like l67. The story I heard was something to do with economics and exchange rate or something but I like brineys version better.

                          i'm moderately confident the series 1 vn v6 was a fwd engine turned around. there was some sort of deal with gm being able to import the engine/box cheap because they were making cars here?

                          I didn't realise for about 15 mins as it never broke the speed limit.

                              this what i heard also -


                              also from wikipedia :
                              Because it was unfeasible to convert the existing six-cylinder engine to run on unleaded fuel, the Nissan engine was chosen as the best engine available. However, changing exchange rates doubled the cost of the engine and transmission over the life of the VL.[96]
