Mate about the Ford I6 and RB30 being related is total bull.
The RB30 used in the VL Commodore was an engine Nissan built specifically for the VL, they don't use this engine in Japan.
The related engine to the RB 30 is the RB20 (used in the R32 Skyline GTS-T), RB25(used in the R33) and RB26 used in Godzilla.
The centre bore of the falcon engine has been the same since the 1960 falcon. No connection with Nissan what so ever.
Falchoon, tell ya mate this, does he know that the 3.8L V6 oh wow high tech engines in the current commos were actually buick engines back dating back to the 60's.
Does he know that this 3.8 V6 is actually designed for a fwd car, hence the rough as guts driveline vibrations and excessive oil consumption in the VN.
Holden had to modify an east-west config engine to a north-south.
