if its a genuine v8 vl would it not be a black 308 engine.! big valve heads rev like a bstard . do it up keep the 308 it will go as well as a chev. also you will have to butcher the tunnel to fit a turbo tranz into it.

253 baby block. I love them. Awesome little revers and they respond to good breathing and exhaust tweaks. Used to build them with sleeves as 240 stockcar engines

nah its a factory 3ltre.has a worked 253 and supra 5 speed at the momnt.was guna keep 5speed behind the chev but have my doubts bout it handling my led foot.

chevyl200, Feb 15, 8:33am
yea it goes well ae,but just not a great fan of the old holden v8s.but please tell me why do the 253s make the funky induction noise with ya foot hard up it!
