VL turbo RB25/30 manual
As far as VL turbo's go the majority
choose to stick to an auto transmission so it was good to see Nigel's
giving his manaul box some stick at Calder Park. The VL Commodore is
powered by a D'Annello Performance Nissan RB25/30 twin cam turbo six combination that makes big power on pump
fuel. Nigel was testing a new 2-step / flat shift setup and the Holden
certainly showed promise going 10.04 at 140mph and 113mph to mid track.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
