Same design cept early model versions ran a smaller camshaft than there american counterparts, this was rectified in the VY series 2.

Um aren't they imported directly from the U.S, as a crate motor?

I know the LS* motors aren't exactly Chev motors, because they're used in other GM partners' vehicles, but I like to call them Chev motors anyway, because they're most associated with the Corvette.

Anyway that still leaves open the question as to why in f***'s name do people put Chev badges on V6 Commodores, when Chev has nothing to do with the car or motor?

Hang on I'll put a Pontiac badge on my VL.

I never asked you to explain anything, I said shouldn't you be trolling the for sale section to rip people off. No explanation is needed for us to realise that not giving all items during a sale exchange and then ignoring all attempts at contact following this was simply you ripping someone off. Or as the law see's it, theft.

The reason we don't ban people like you is for the simple fact people should know the kind of trader you are. So please, by all means, keep bumping up old threads so I can keep reminding people.
