Alloytec/LS1/LS2 prices?

Discussion in 'Other Countries' started by Aych Es Vee, Dec 19, 2004.

  1. Alloytec price?

    How much do you think an Alloytec 190 would cost? or even the normal 175? And would you have to buy direct from Holden?

    Also, LS1, and LS2 prices?
     
  2. Alloytec price?

    You don't want one.
     
  3. Alloytec price?

    He could get a v8 for less and the alloytechs arn't even that great.
     
  4. nobody said i wanted one. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  5. So you were just asking for the sake of it?
     
  6. pretty much yeah.

    but you know, if i do up my VL, i dont care if it sounds like i'm spending too much money on it, but there are SO many done up VLs out there already, that i would like to do sumthin totally different to what everyone else has done. I know theres already an LS1 VL out there. I was thinkin 'hey, dropping in an Alloytec is sumthin totally different, and could be pretty cool with a nice exhaust and all. Dropping in an LS2 would be even better, but i might have to change a heck of a lot more things on the car to handle an LS2, and i dont have that kinda money.... now anyways. I'd like an Alloytec 190 in the VL, and later on i shall get a HQ Monaro, spray it mat-black, and drop an LS2 into that'

    hahaha, ahhhhh, i'm so full of ideas, which i'm thinking will never come to pass, but i can only hope. you guys must be thinking 'this guys an idiot...' hahaha
     
  7. Because the engine is so new I'd say at least 6k.
     
  8. The new Holden/GM engines are very expensive. Why don't you install the 4 litre V8 from a Soarer? It's lighter than the LS1/2 & is a quad cam so it should sound like the new Ford engine under throttle.

    And also the 1UZ-FE is very cheap. You can get a front cut for only 3 grand.
     
  9. other ideas: a Ford 302 v8 or a rb25det
     
  10. I thought you weren't comming back <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  11. nice ideas, i was thinkin about the RB25DET thing, but i checked it out, although it work great and all, its been done many times over.

    Dropping in a Ford engine sounds nice, XR6T engine maybe?


    Anyways, i dont drive the VL much now coz i got a Van that i use for work, i only drive the VL when i go out, so doing it up is what i wanna do.

    the 1UZ-FE is the 4L 187kw Toyota V8 right? got any idea how much they'd be worth?

    Anyways, something from GM or Ford sounds better coz parts would be cheaper, etc...

    Its all depending on; price, power, quality, and if its been done.
     
  12. "You can get a front cut for only 3 grand."

    I doubt you will have many problems with the reliability of the 1UZ, it's a terrific engine.
     
  13. oh, $3000..... missed that. That is pretty cheap for a full front cut actually.

    I might have a look into this..... VL with a Soarer V8.... sounds... nice <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  16. I didn't... for a while. I have been gone for more than six months though so it's been a while.

    Look at this site now though, all white backgrounds & we can finally stop posting in the American forum when we talk about our cars. I like that.

    Have a look at this forum.

    http://www.4wdmonthly.com.au/forum/index.php?board=5;action=display;threadid=4714;start=100

    This Aussie guy installed a 1UZ-FE into his truck & the total cost was about 6k. Not bad considering all the custom fabricated parts he paid for.


    And some front cuts for sale:

    http://www.justjap.com/used_halfcuts.htm

    As you can see, a Soarer front cut is 3k. A Crown half cut only $2500. Instead of using the auto you can install a gearbox from a turbo Supra. They're not cheap but are very strong. Or even a 5 speed from an R33 GTS25T Skyline. Then, use an R200 diif from said Skyline & you have a very, very strong driveline.

    hmmmm, i am liking this idea more and more.
     
  19. Why don't you just sell the VL and buy whatever car the engine you are keen on comes in? I'm sure it will be a hell of a lot cheaper!!!
     
  20. But its hardly unique.
     
  21. True...but unique means lots of $$$$
     
  22. i dont mind, as long as it aint way over the top with the cash.

    gives me a hobby anyway.
