Holden VE V6 to V8 swap

Recommended Posts

Can I put this here🤔...

I aint no Holden fan...and not a member of any other forum. 

Put the L76 engine and trans on the bench today to inspect for needed parts. Going to do this before the E39.

Subframe. Radiators. Body harness. Diff. Fuel pump. Air induction.Hsv headers...bla bla blaaa. Oh yea..HSV massive brakes...

Planning to do a 48hr swap...if all goes well.

Sprayed cross member.

Arranging all the parts and ordering new bits. 

Hoping to remove engine and trans tomorrow and will fit in 2-3 weeks if all goes to plan.

Yea man..

F. 295 to 365mm

R. 300 to 345mm

The rears backing plates too small and the shoes sit at 8mm deeper so either a mod or a hub replacement ...😓
