I have been very quiet on the forums for the past year. A monster has been lurking in the closet and I think it's time to reveal it. My old motor had given up and was very low on compression, barely registering on 2 cylinders. Instead of rebuilding which I became very close to doing, I decided it was time for a change. When 3.0L just doesn't cut it, here I present the 6.0L zed Freshly unwrapped: Will it fit?: Not quite, better make it fit then.. Looks shocking in this pic, and that battery tray needed a good clean up. From inside: Gotta loose those stock headers (they wont fit anyway ) : Might have gone a bit overboard on the cutting: It's nice being able to fit your whole arm on top of the bell housing, room galore: New firewall: Reverse sump & Started with 4 into 1 extractors but there was a serious ground clearance issue and this car has to stay streetable: Ahead with the tri-y design: Mount it up (almost lines up with standard): Modified zed gearbox mount (again only a tad out): Top view of extractors: Extractors finished and painted: Yep, still automatic :rofl: Getting there.. Finally all in: Number plates to go with it Look at the size of the wheel arch gap since this motor is quite a bit lighter: Details - Motor: Stock L98 6.0L v8 (as used in the VZ Thunder + VE SS) Gearbox: Beefed up TH700 4 speed with High stall, B&M ratchet shifter ECU/PCM: Standard VE computer Currently running MAF and stock tune to satisfy licensing. The car is in driving order and as is, pulls harder than it did with my old setup with GT28R's. Will eventually upgrade cam and aiming for ~330rwkw. No idea what current output is but the torque is incredible (not to mention how it sounds!!) The gearbox will be the weakest link and time will tell if it can cope. May need to go even more impractical with a TH400. It has obviously been built with straight line speed in mind which is why its staying automatic. Has had engineer approval and will be going over the pits once I have finished a few little things. Anyway thats my 2c... Carry on..
