VS V8 EFI info

Hi all, I need some info regarding EFI wiring etc for VS V8 commodores. My quadrajet carbied 308 (with VN-VS heads) in my HZ ute is getting a VS V8 EFI setup. Only thing is I need some info clarified, so here goes:

1. Am I correct in saying that the pinout for the 2 connectors for the computer (ECM for manual, PCM for auto) are wired completely different re manual vs auto. Looking at the limited wiring diagrams I have, it seems they are totally different. Correct?

2. Going by above, you cant simply then swap auto to manual computers around without re-wiring the engine loom, correct?

New work guide on the installation of an electric water pump and controller

I'm really happy with this guide, and also extremely happy with the performance of the new parts. The guide can be found here: http://gallery.oldho...

In short, this guide is detailing the replacement of the standard water pump with an electric water pump and controller. It was so effective that I am also thinking of putting one on the wifes car next year, although I will be putting thermatic fans on her car first because they made the job so much simpler.

There's also a review at the end of the guide which I will be adding to over time, with economy figures etc I will wait a while first though because I currently have gearbox problems which are affecting my economy.

Climate Control

CLIMATE CONTROL. I have a 9/91 Calais. A few months ago the aircon/heater vents stopped working correctly. You can set climate control for head, head&feet or feet. When they are set on head the air comes out of these upper vents only occassionally. The air coming out the bottom vents seem to be on all the time. Anyone have an idea? I assume there are solenoid operated doors that direct air to the various locations. If that's correct are they difficult to get to? Ken

Dashboard Wiring

Hey all. I have put a HZ GTS dash into my HJ Premier and I noticed on the back of the dash cluster there is supposed to be 2 x 5v red wires connected to it. Where the hell do I pull 5v from for that? Also, if anyone has done this before or knows of a diagram showing colours and plugs that go together for the GTS dash conversion, could they show me please?

Engine Compression?

Hey yal,

I saw on here just before a yella terra head 11.5:1 comp.

I'm wondering what effect does this comp have on the car? I'm guessing more power but anything else?

Blows smoke when backing off...

Can any body tell me what my mate's problem could be?
He has a VL turbo manual, Only blows smoke(oil) out of exhaust when backing off.
From looking at a past post, they suggest leaking valve guides/seals, but it blows no smoke at start up, or when accelerating.
Any ideas what may cause this?

Cheers - Martin

HX body on a HQ chassis?

Gday, recently I bought a holden full size ute. I was told it's a HX body on a HQ chassis. How can I varify this? Can I take measurements of chassis rails etc to find out?

What I can tell you is this....
- I can't seem to find the chassis number. Probly looking in the wrong place.
- It is registered as a HQ UTILITY on a compliance plate that seems to have beed drilled out at some stage.
- Has the HX humps on the winscreen wiper panel (cowl?).
- Has a HX premier dash complete.
- Has a HX prem front end
- All the body-to-chassis rubber mounts are VERY old and look like they've never been replaced.

VH commodore

hello, i have to sell an ex show-car style VH commodore. was 308/trimatic/9inch diff but all of that is moved on to another project. car is silver, has custom grey/blue interior, rollcage, sports steering wheel, almost new carpets and has 6x9 speakers in parcel tray. is currently sitting on VP SS commodore rims but do have pursuit rims (i think) if prefered. has genie extractors and tuff sounding system, engine bay has hidden wiring with battery in boot. boot is fully carpeted. and has custom fiberglass cover around struts/radiator etc. has bonnet scoop.

this is a tuff looking commodore that will need a driveline + little minor work to complete. was a feature car in a commodore magazine a few years back, i think the magazine is still here. many hours and money has gone into this car and would suit a commodore enthusist. has been sitting in shed for a while now so needs to go.
