    Just wondering if there is a different between a VX LS1 and VY LS1 throttle body. In particular, where the cruise control cable connects to the little stud(non traction control car)

    The engine, which I’m about to put in my VY Ute was originally from a VX. I’ve bought a VY cruise control module from a VY SS Ute, but the clip on the end of the cab…[Read more]

  • Reminds me a bit of the HSV colour Jaffa on the 10th anniversary VT HSV’s

     

  • Airbags are defiantly optional on VS executive, also steering wheel center is different on a non airbag car, they dont have a clock spring for the airbags the later Holden Logo is also used on the steering wheel center that was introduced in VS production (compared to VN/VP/VR type logo) so it cant have been swapped from an early holden…[Read more]

    I’ll try and fit a new insert into the spare housing I have and see how it goes.

    $36 isn’t a huge outlay, it might also give me enough time to decide on the other mount if it doesn’t work out

  • exec24 replied to the topic Diff Mounts in the forum Driveline 1 year, 11 months ago

    I’ve had the diff out once before. I thought while i was at it to replace the standard type rubber mount with nolathene type but when I went to do it couldn’t get the insert into the housing.

    i ended up giving up a refitting the stock one.

    now that I’m fitting the new diff soon, I’m just trying to work out the best option,  I’m not real sure…[Read more]

    no prob

  • i Have a mate looking for a M80 Diff from a VX, VY or VZ,

    not fussed on ratio or if its open wheeler. as he already purchased a LSD which had a damaged thread in one of the mounting holes, so at worst he will use the internals from that

    as cheap as possible

    Pickup in Adelaide, northern suburbs if possible
