VL Turbo Vs VT Turbo
 
Hey everyone... which would like rather have parked on your driveway? A VL TURBO, or VT TURBO. :D

Here are some pics of a VT TURBO;

By the way... say you wanted a VL to do 10's... how much would it cost? and why will you need to spend more on a VT to get it into the 10's? Are VL's made for lightening fast speeds. Thanks. Any comments appreciated

That front mount on the VT looks pox!

Lets make the main focal point a frikin alternator..

Sinister 13-06-07 10:34

VL is much better for times as its 300kgs+ lighter and has a live axle diff..
but that VT ran 11.2 @121mph and makes 330rwkw on 20psi. internally stock engine except for rocker arms.
With the bar on you dont even see the cooler except though the main air hole.

i think 90% are going to say they would prefer a vl as its a vl sight lol... nice power though out of the vt

.sam. 13-06-07 11:40

I'd love to see that with the bumper on.

I like it :)

MR.SUS 13-06-07 11:46

yeh go the vt turbo looks diffrent a newer nicer car even though i own vl trboo

vl_burgs 13-06-07 12:09

what motor was the turbo put on in the VT, was it supercharged to start? sorry just doesnt look like an ecotec

REALIST 13-06-07 12:31

well if those pics are from the FIT website, which it looks like they are, then that black vt is a mates car. it was an R&D project built by FIT to test the power limit of the super6 bottom end. car now makes 444 rwhp @ about 19psi i think, and the engine loves it. very quick car.

sort of.. its the supercharged motor, the same motor found on the factory supercharged v6s.. as it was once supercharged. dead stock except like said for the higher ratio rocker arms. only difference internally afaik is the pistons, they're not forged but bit tougher and ceramic coated i believe, and the rods are a bit thicker.. the heads also have injector holes in different spots due to the supercharger manifold. u can do it to your normal ecotec tho, just just pistons and rods aftermarket and itll be even stronger.

looks tough as mate. dunno if its cheaper to get a vt into the 10's rather than a vl but i could be wrong. how much was it to get that 11.2?

Johhn 13-06-07 13:17

Nice car and it's also different too:)

not mine.. lol and its not the posters either, thats a FIT development car www.v6supercharged.com i think is the site
its just the price to bolt on the turbo pretty much, its the stock tranny and diff too!
the turbo is just a gt35r so with the exhaust manifolds the turbo piping and a cooler tune fuel e.t.c it adds up but no worse than a vl

ATMO_BT1 13-06-07 13:25

VT for sure, those 3.8s are mental with a decent sized single turbo, such torquey motors and so responsive.

And that bay looks 10 times better than 90% of vl's on this site, the alternator might be ugly but at least it's ****ing neat lol.

for sure.. check the videos on their site, they do some 0-100 runs, quicker than a lamborghini

VS-Exec 13-06-07 13:39

VTs are boats with IRS. Buy a 3.8L VS exec with live axle and whack a turbo on that!

Killervlt 13-06-07 17:35

that front mount looks really **** on the vt would go for a vlt for sure

NTONIO 13-06-07 21:30

Who cares what the cooler looks like, seriously theres going to be a front bar in front of it so your only going to see fins anyway.

Id go a VYSS Twin Turbo http://www.boostcruising.com/databas...4384556676.jpg

Altho id chose a VL Turbo over a VT Turbo due to the reliability factor that i belive a VL will be more reliable then the Eco 3.8's

i'll have to disagree with u on the stock tranny and diff cause if it is the fit turbo it got a 3.46 lsd and a fully rebuilt tranny to get it into the 11s!!!!!! it was doing 12.7 on the stock diff and tranny....

kalais6 13-06-07 22:06

Ring FIT now ans they dont want to know about turbo jobs anymore - thats a conversation I had with them a couple of months ago. When it comes to getting the Ecotec and Super6's going hard though, FIT have it covered for sure

GASRB6 13-06-07 22:08

VL all the way. Lighter, better looking and cheaper to modify. High 11s r easy on standard internals.

XTC16 13-06-07 22:14

Looks well done mate and aces for something different.
