Re: Over 500 HP with a VG30, why go with a SR?

Maybe I'm wrong, but do not use the truck VG30 , it had more torque. Thats what Jason at Canby said Spreadbury used in his 510. Spreadbury is using a SR turbo engine now. Correct me if i'm wrong. You will need the Z-31 engine. If you are not sure, do research before posting something. All VG30e's a...

Re: Over 500 HP with a VG30, why go with a SR?

You know, I have to put a comment in here. Normally I stay neutral in such matters - run what you brung. I'm a a guy who loves the sound on inline 4's and sixes with a wide open induction set up => ITB's N/A'd. But I'll tell ya - Denis's VG wagon has a scream to be envied. You would need to hear it...

LOL, funniest thing I've heard. My VG is so easy to work on in my 510, only the oil filter is a pain in the ass.

Re: Over 500 HP with a VG30, why go with a SR?

Sounds good RonM. "Insert handshake here" I for one would never put a VG30DE into a 510.....so I guess I should clarify that I would use the much smaller top ended VG30E. The VG needs the same things the SR does to achieve 500hp.....BIG turbo, more fuel and a good tune. the only difference between t...

Re: Over 500 HP with a VG30, why go with a SR?

0 First off.... the VG was never in production use , an aluminum block....I am surprised that someone with so much knowledge would give out such misinformation. The SR/VG/KA.....ect.....debate could go on forever.........who cares, every motor has its strengths and weaknesses. The VG will Handle a ...

Re: Over 500 HP with a VG30, why go with a SR?

If I were going to try and answer this thread question without starting a pissing match I'd say something to the effect of comparing apples and oranges. On that note, if we're talking about these motors for use in a 510 drag-goon vs a slalom sedan then we've just entered a whole new bowl of fruit. ...

Re: No More Aircare!

I too will be very happy to see Air-scare done, but VI stations will be waaaay worse to deal with. I doubt there is any vehicle out there that some anal inspector couldn't fing SOMETHING wrong with... Whether you know this or not, and as a licensed vehicle inspector...... I incur all legal liabilit...

Re: No More Aircare!

Be careful what you wish for, like Byron said you don't know what is going to take it's place....Aircare was never an issue for me so I didn't mind it.
A vehicle inspection on the other hand could become troublesome.

Re: Road Trips - What spares are really needed

I carried a full sized 16X7.5 spare for years, last year I got a space saver from a R32 GTR.
Not once have I had a flat, go figure.
