    But seriously


    If these GENIII V8s are such a high performance engine, how come they are not in the speed records?

    http://www.fullboost.com.au/racing/records/records.html

    I only see 1 Holden with a Holden V8 in the records.


    I would have though that seeming the GENIII was such a high performance engine that they would be using it more :confused:

    As my previous post states.

    How come they are not in the speed records?

    I know what they are used in.

    And if THEY are such speed machines how come they are no where near the speed records?

    Because they are a modified Family car. They are based on a sedan, they are not made to be a sports car, and, they never will be a true sports car.

    I know a few Holden fans, but they also take note of the cars around them, they are not blind like some that think Holden rule the performance market

    bah, it's no use

    I give up


    And you know I love your sexual body, (And yours Shawn :devil win )

    Calm down you vicious k'nid.

    Most Holden fans think thank Holden’s are the king of performance cars that's all.

    I suppose when you purchase a Holden you also buy that image :laugh:


    Oh well, I would never buy a Holden after seeing my parents VT blow up, and my brothers diff gave up the ghost, then the engine then the radiator and a few other things lol.


    But everyone’s opinion is different : peace2:

    Just take your time and accept praise & critisim from your fellow motorists. As stated many a time before- you arent too aware of how cars work. I came into the motoring world with exactly the same knowledge. I new the basics of basics (oil goes in here, fuel goes in here and push that pedal to go) and once the performance bug bit me, I actively sought out information about getting the most out of my car. After x many years and experiances with mates cars, it became clear that holdens suffer from poor upgrade steps. ie- the small things you do to the engine that cost ****all are rarely ever worth the effort, simply because thats not how they are designed. HOWEVER, if the owner is willing to drop some serious money into the car, it WILL perform well. Be aware any serious modding will no doubt require the current engine gets given the ol heave-ho.
    Engine conversions involve ALOT of time, money and pre-thought/planning. Stop thinking about it right now if you think its a simple operation. You need to take into consideration EVERY little detail about your car. I suggest a fine-tooth comb.

    My advice to you is this- forget ricers. Forget about having to beat them to prove they are wankers. They already know they are wankers. Concentrate on what is best for your car, and improve your driving skills. There will ALWAYS be better cars than yours out there. Prove yourself a better driver.



    oh, and go Mitsubishi.
    my GSR eats 8s for breakfast, lunch AND tea.
    Go son, go.
    :p
