Ive had 3 VH's so far. The first it was a 173, then put a 253 in it then later took off the road, put a twin turbo VP V6 in it. The last one was an injected 304 that i was going to twin turbo but never got the time or $$$. Good luck, there by far the tuffest commodore - Such a massive rise in them when the big twin turbo VH's came about.

Out of curiosity you seem to have spent good money for quality parts in terms of engine components - is it wise to risk all that with Ebay turbo's ? I'd be more than a touch worried with the bad rep they have.

Thoughts?
