What fuel

What Fuel do we all run our old holden 6's on. I currently drive a vk it only ever gets 91 unleaded in it, the head on this 1 hasn't been done up for unleaded eventually If I ever rebuild the motor it will get done up for unleaded. I don't bother with any additives I don't drive that hard usually I'm asking this as I was surprised at some of the answers in another thread by blokes saying to use 98 why bother how much further in k's per tank does it go? My oldman did the same that motor went 10 years out lasted the car.

VK EFI extractor 'issues'.

G'day you fullas. I've been getting a set of efi pipes ready for the 12 port swap over.
The factory sorta got it wrong when making them, but they are sposed to be a very good design.
The flange holes were 6mm smaller than the head ports, I used a strip of duct tape to duplicate the head machining to the flange and marked them to grind out. The lower edge and the widths were near enough to good.
Also, the collector is rubbish... who fits the pipe INSIDE the cone???
Thats gunna be remedied as well when I put the 2 1/2" pipe on.
Jus sayin'.

Hi guys,

Hi All,
does anyone know how the rocker breather system works on a vk efi.

Im looking into putting a catch tank on a blown engine.

Steel case Celica box

Hi all, I am planning a v8 conversion on my VK and need to know how strong are celica steel case 5 speeds. I have the opurtunity to buy one cheap and may have a bellhousing lined up for a v8 trimatic pattern fairly cheap. I know it should be able to handle 250hp, but torque im not sure about. It needs to be able to handle the occasional moment of spirited driving. Im not sure if I want to hotup a carby 308, or just fit an EFI 5L with a hsv chip, it just depends on what I can find.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
