stock VL boost?

hahah my mate wrote off his manual 86 VL and to my utter disgust he comes back the next week with a manual 87 VL TURBO.

**** haah

anyways what i want to know is some specs about this car.
the shit on www.carsales.com.au isnt much help....

whats the stock power/torque?
whats the stock boost it runs?

0/100km times?
quater mile times?

what sort of turbo is it?
how efficent is the turbo?
anything shit about this car (other than being a holden?)

anything likely to go wrong with it?
(it has done 145,000 kays!)

hehe KNOW YOUR ENEMY!
not that i have a chance in hell in beating him perfromance wise (i own the stereo part hehe) but i just wanna be informed!

What can i say? its half a nissan skylien, with a factory turbo.. not a holden. :)
Stock boost is about 6-7psi .. @ roughly 145kw standard.

Just look for info on RB30et.. i cant be bothered.

These stats are from the Sep 2000 Motor magazine Past Blast article.

Power: 150 kW @ 5600 rpm
Torque: 296 Nm @ 3200 rpm
Weight: about 1300 kg

0-100 km/h: 7.78
0-400m: 15.32

The Turbo is a Garrett T3 and like Sp33dy said boost is around 6-7 psi. The weaknesses of the car, would be that it's a VL for starters - so build quality and the interior design are terrible. It is likely to have been driven quite hard, if your mate is a P plater he is going to be hassled by the cops non-stop. I can't think of anything else to add :)

Re: VL Turbo

Vls also have cooling porblems standard... so a standard VL can run into problems when not looked after.... FMIC of soem type wodul be one of the first mods.!

Re: VL Turbo

The VL Turbo's weakness was that its chassis dated back to '76 and was way out of date. Also note that it is no faster than a manual EA.

Re: VL Turbo

I am referring to an article in Wheels magazine. But Kenaz said about something about 7.78 seconds 0-100, whereas the manual MPI EA S did 7.8 on a Wheels test. Those are 2 seperate tests probably under different conditions (Wheels tests its cars with 2 people and a full tank of fuel aboard) but nonetheless the 2 cars seem approximately as fast as each other.

That is not to say that it wouldn't be pretty cheap and easy to make a VL Turbo much faster.
