Given you have a VN-VP V8, you can adjust the shift characteristics by carefully adjusting the kick down cable
Yes the raptor supercharger kit is suitable for a stock engine that is in good working order.
The rocker covers will be fine with the Comp cams stage 2 cam and standard ratio rockers.
Although the engine will run you will find that it will tend to stall a lot when coming of the throttle, it would be ok to drive a short distance however I would avoid driving it until it's tuned
You'll need to run some form of intercooling and a tune to suit to be able to run 15psi pulley.
If your looking at increased performance on a reasonable budget then we recommend the following package; http://support.maceengineering.com.au/Knowledgebase/Article/View/108/129/2-ecotec-bolt-on-package However if your willing to spend largely, we recomme...
It all depends on the plates having enough contact with the pulley in question to allow for fitting/removal. In majority of the cases, our tool will be able to accommodate installation of other brand pulleys. *We can remove this from the question if it’s ...
Unfortunately you can't load our Power Pro Flash tuning file using an SCT programmer.
We purchased these kits from Raptor, which they no longer do.The make of the mounted supercharger is Raptor. Not from us sadly. In saying this though, depending on where you're located we may be able to recommend someone
We normally recommend that people attempt to install the manifold insulator first, however if you're concerned about the installation process, then the cold air intake would be easier and more forgiving to install
12mm manifold insulator (MI622) http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/MI621_1/SubProducts/MI621_1 6mm plenum spacer (MI630). This will also fit the 12mm manifold insulator http://www.maceengineering.com.au...
To give you an idea as to what the kit comes with, check out the fitting instructions in the link below. Please note in your case, as you're not running a MAF, we would replace the MAF adapter with a straight section of steel tube http://www.maceengineeri...
We do have a cold air intake kit to suit a VN V8 as shown in the link below http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/performance/carburation-induction/auction-571029373.htm
We do,for more info please check out the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/ROC607/SubProducts/ROC607
All of the components needed for the job come in the kit
In regards to the OTR intake below, it doesn't need a tune for it to work http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CAI841/SubProducts/CAI841
Yes this product will suit 98 Calais supercharged L67.
Unfortunately we can't supply chips/memcals with these cams. You'll need to have custom tune.
These products come with a lifetime warranty
The underdriven harmonic balancer kit you need is PBK601, as shown in the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/PB620/SubProducts/PB621
Given your approximately budget and desired outcomes, I would recommend a manifold insulator, 69mm throttle body and a tune to suit
We can certainly supply parts to suit depending on your budget (?)
You'll get over the 200rwkw mark when running on E85, with something like our extreme kit with high compression, very large cam, and extensive porting Please view our performance packages; http://support.maceengineering.com.au/Knowledgebase/List/Index/129...
Assuming you have an ecotec or an L67 engine, then the parts that would be suitable are shown in the links below, including pricing *Valve Springs http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU?ObjectID=1469582 Please note that these require retai...
Our boost upgrade kits, as shown in the link below, utilise a modular hub system allowing for ease of change between pulleys. The part number for our 10 pound/psi pulley kit is PLY616 http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectID=146980...
The LIM will still be useful, provided the A2A outlet is ported to suit. While the ported W2A outlet of the supercharger will need to have a section of Aluminium tack welded in place, such that it matches the inlet of the A2A plate, which is easy to do
This product will fit your vehicle without any problems.
The biggest we can generally fit in our CAI kits is a 9 inch long pod filter
The 12mm insulator would be slightly easier to install then the combo
Your looking at $850 plus postage. Therefore there is a $50 price difference. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CCP601/SubProducts/CCP601
The kit comes with a stage 3 camshaft, memcal and valve springs. Furthermore the kit must be used in conjuction with a twin cat exhaust system.
It will be safe with stock roller rockers. No problem, we are always glad to help.
It will. For more info about the product/service, please check out the links below Holden VE V6 Remote FLASH Tuning http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/PPF601/SubProducts/PPF605 REMOTE TUNING PROCEDURE h...
It would require bonnet and firewall modifications to be able to get it to fit
Please be informed that we have a 70mm throttle body to suit your vehicle which is better than standard and you can find out on our website with product number TB803. Moreover, it doesn't required a tune.
We can certainly help you out. Please be advised that you will need a re-tune if you upgrade your engine modifications.
For a VU model ecotec we can supply your basic bolt on mods such as our cold air intake, manifold and plenum spacer, our high ratio rockers, 69mm throttle body and tunes. We can also supply engine upgrades such as cam and valve train upgrades, stroker and...
69mm throttle body $220 http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/TB0001/SubProducts/TB601
Can you please advise us whether your VS is a Series I or Series II - and which transmission type the vehicle is running; T5 or Getrag. Off the bat though, we wouldn't be able to supply you with a memcal to suit the larger injectors or the air intake chip...
My advice would be to swap the all of the wiring including the force motors and other electromechanical items from your orignal gearbox to your new one. Otherwise we can't supply a tune to suit sadly
At the flywheel, it would be possible to get around the 350-400hp mark
To be honest Andrew I would personally spend your money on replacing your O2 sensors. I say this as these will help to correct the air fuel ratio over time under wide open throttle, due to fuel trims The only major gains to be had would be to further incr...
In your case, unfortunately the MACE/VCM OTR does not suit VE Alloytec engines, due to the size of the factory MAF on the Alloytec engines.
In your case, unfortunately, the MACE/VCM OTR does not suit VE Alloytec engines, due to the size of the factory MAF on the Alloytec engines.
Yes we do. The holden performance memcal to suit VS V6 is also suitable for a vs commodore ute series 3. We have not updated the page yet to illustrate that the series 3 is included, however it is.http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?Ob...
Replacing the push rods is not necessary with this upgrade.
It is difficult to give accurate figures. Please keep in mind that the values we give you, are estimations
We do as shown in the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/PLY601 Please note though that our hubs are only compatible with our pulleys
Definitely would be easier with the engine out of the car, as the supercharger will not need to come out
We can supply you a tune to suit your current/proposed mods, within reason, including our larger throttle body
Theanswers to your questions are as follows respectively: 1. They are, as they're brand new cams. 2. They're 1.63:1 from memory. 3. The rev limiter isn't increased. 4. You will need a custom tune done for your stroker.
They will, just not as well as on a dead standard one
We don't offer a cam installation service at this point in time. Depending on where you're located though, we may be able to recommend someone who could do the work for you.

Unfortunately we can't supply you with a custom made intercooler plate to suit your M62 supercharger
If you're not afraid to rev out your car in the high RPM range, on a consistent basis, then go the 12mm spacers. If you're predominately spending your time in the low to mid RPM range, the I would go the 25mm items instead
It's not, and would assist with reducing the pressure drop across the inlet track, resulting in more power
The compression ratio available with the entry level stroker kit is around 9.0:1 While it's higher then factory, the fact that the engine capacity is being increased means that the boost pressure will drop due to the limited capacity of the M90 supercharg...
I would leave it at 10psi, unless you were planning on getting a custom tune done
That interference fit of around .05mm is about right from memory
If you want your mechanic to fill out the forms on your behalf this should be fine, otherwise the forms will need to be filled out as the tuning service that we offer only allows for the tuning to take place on our end at this point in time. However this ...

No, as these recorded gains were on a dead standard car.
Yes it is. Your looking at a discount of $40.
Fortunately the remote custom tuning service can be performed without a dyno :)
I believe that these items are off a Porsche around the 2001-2006 vintage. Will see if I can find out an exact part number for you
Improvement in torque would be around 6%, 10% and 13% respectively.
We apologise for any confusion/misunderstanding on our part, as our website is still being developed. Fortunately, we do have a 25mm manifold insulator to suit your vehicle as shown in the link below: http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU...
We recommend the 10:1 compression ratio when running a raptor supercharger in conjunction with our stroker kit. Otherwise we wouldn't recommend running a stroker kit with the raptor supercharger.
We offer full technical support in the event that the calibrated memcal does not work. Furthermore our memcals are tuned specifically to suit your modifications and desired outcomes while the ebay performance memcals most likely contain a generic performa...
In this situation we would suggest that you fabricate a plate the screws into place of the pulley. This would then easily allow you to use our pulley removal/installation tool for the job. Otherwise the snout would have to come off and a press used to adj...
The pod filter that we use is a SAAS item. The overall dimensions of the SAAS filter we use is approximately 150mm in diameter x 170mm long with a 76mm intake neck.
If you had to class E85 as a type of fuel, it would be "Race" fuel as it's the same stuff that V8 Supercars use
The throttle body tune is specifically done to suit an enlarged TB. Generally we ask that you supply a list of all your modifications so that the tune can be calibrated to suit your other modifications as well.
The exact rate is shown below http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/convert/?Amount=1
We can tune your vehicle to lower the amount of boost below factory when your vehicle cruise control is active. This will increase fuel efficiency while decreasing performance.
For some price's please check out the links below CNC Ported L67 Inlet Manifold http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/ETN618 CNC Ported L67 M90 Supercharger http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf...
The most boost you can run with your L67 without a custom tune or an intercooler would be 10psi.
The most boost you can run with your L67 without a custom tune or an intercooler would be 10psi.
The calibration of our memcal is further developed, with respect to the factory Series II memcal.
We can supply you with a mail order flash tune, as shown in the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/COMP621
You should be able to use this item from memory. Worse case you may have to use a longer section of hose for the job.Another option to consider would be to use our universal CAI, and modify the COME Racing snorkel to 4 inch as shown in the links below. Th...
Yes, the cams will be 100% suitable and there will be no problems in relation to fitment. In order to recommend an appropriate package regarding the stage 1 or 2 we would need to know the customer’s intended use and desired outcomes so that we can advise ...
That PCM in question won't be compatible with you PCM If you're after a replacement PCM for your VT we don't have anything to suit unfortunately, however we do have a memcal to suit as shown in the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop....
It will work fine as our throttle bodies are based off the standard factory items, with identical external features. All we do is machine out the internal diameter of the factory throttle body, replace the factory butterfly and slot the throttle shaft to ...
Unfortunately, this will not work because we don't have cam and chip package designed to suit any supercharger setup
The rear O2 sensors are there to monitor the performance of the catalytic converters. Unfortunately as with any modern EFI engine, when sensors play up it can cause the engine to use more fuel.
My advice would be to start off by replacing your O2 sensors
It sounds like you possibly have an ecotec which has excessive casting flashes in the push rod holes. Mostly this is a problem with the VY model commodores although it is becoming apparent that some VX Commodores also suffer from the same problem. To conf...
To shift as quickly as possible, no. There is where wider tyres would be beneficial
Correct, nothing else is required, simply bolt these rocker covers on with the L67 rocker cover seals and you are ready to go, no other mods are required when fitting these onto an ecotec engine.
The list below outlines some items to consider Cams,Tune,OTR Cold air intake,Exhaust system ,Diff gears,Under-drive pulley kit,Catch-can.This is as far as most people go in a naturally aspirated state without forced induction.
You would be looking at gains of around 3-5rwkw with the throttle body. The biggest difference would be in better throttle response.
In order to be able to run an 8 rib supercharger belt in conjunction with our boost upgrade kit, you would need the following.   http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/sec2981d6ef1c/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/PLY631/SubProducts/PLY633 [h...
Unfortunately, we don't have an OTR that suit your vehicle at this point in time. However, we can help you with our cold air intake that can be shown in the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Produc...
It includes the oil pump drive, but not the oil pump itself.
Unless otherwise mentioned in the ad, these items are included.
To give you an idea in regards to prices, please refer to the list below. VS - VY V6
Assuming the rattle is 100% coming from the lifters, then is it a simple case of replacing the lifters. In order to do this, you would keep the lifters soaked in oil overnight, and replace them as outlined in a credible workshop manual.

The rockers which would be suitable for your vehicle is shown in the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/sec328d95d998/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/ROC000/SubProducts/ROC601-PR601
In regards to the plastic engine cover, you'll still be able to install this however you need to space out the metal bracket with washers and longer screws.
You will not have any issues with closing the bonnet, in conjunction with this item.
Given the budget you have, your best bet would be to go with our Bolt-On Package as shown in the link below: http://support.maceengineering.com.au/Knowledgebase/Article/View/259/729/2-alloytec-ve--bolt-on-package Otherwise, please refer to the other packa...
It doesn't. In saying this though, we would recommend that the pushrods are measured to suit each engine build with this cam.
 Installation is easy. Basically, the supplied throttle controller wiring loom needs to plug in between the throttle pedal and throttle pedal cable. Then you decide where you want to mount the throttle pedal controller (on the dash near the steering wheel...
You would be looking at improvements in torque by around 5% down low.
There is genuinely a considerable difference in the shifting characteristics with the calibration service that we offer. In summary it basically makes the shifts a lot more intuitive resulting in a much more pleasurable driving experience.
Given your requirements, we would recommend one of the cams that have available as shown in the link below. Please note that you would be required to run standard ratio rockers. PERFORMANCE COMP CAMS TO SUIT HOLDEN SUPERCHARGED L67 3.8L V6 VS VT VX VU VY ...
With everything standard you'll be able to a 10PSI pulley on 98 octane fuel. This would represent the best value for money. Otherwise you can run a 8PSI pulley on 95 octane fuel.
Assuming your car is in good working order, is internally standard (no cam, standard comp, stroker crank etc), runs on unleaded, and is naturally aspirated (not running any boost) It would work with your car.
Assuming your car has been well looked after and is in good working order, then embarking on a tune/upgrades would be fine.
Fitting instructions are not available with this thermostat (unless located on our fitting instructions page). In saying this though, we would recommend getting a hold of a Gregory's workshop manual for guidance.
The installation of roller rockers on a Holden V6 engine isn't hard. In saying this though, in order to be able to best make this call, we would recommend assesing the indicative fitting instructions as shown in the link below. http://www.streetcommodores...
Basically it would make no difference to us if we tune your car with standard or aftermarket wheel, provided they are kept after the tune has been finalised.
Given you have a 4 speed auto, our tune will certainly improve the shift quality that you're currently experiencing.
Given these mods, we unfortunately can't provide you a memcal to suit. You would require a custom tune.
Assuming you have general bolt on mods and are not running more then a 10psi pulley, then we would be able to supply a memcal to suit based as shown in the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products...
Assuming that it is installed in accordance with how a diff centre is normally installed/replaced, then the answer is yes. 
These engine mounts are standard height mount with cylindrical rubber bush. 5.0mm thick steel plate. 13.0mm diameter thru bolt.
You will be looking at 9000rpm or thereabouts, it depends on the rest of the rotating assembly and setup though.
Modular Hub (Part No: PLY601) $100 3.3" Pulley (Part No: PLY603) $130
The size of the tube on this X-Pipe are 55mm on one end and 60mm on the other, such that is can be installed easily with the factory system.
Once our hub/flange is fitted, future pulley changes with our pulleys are just bolt on to the same hub.
We don't on LS1 PCMs unfortunately due to the fact that we're not eligible for a tune credit refund. We can definitely attempt to resolve any issues you ever face with this product though.
Not exactly. You would still need to either modify the throttle linkage or run an LS throttle cable along with a custom tune to suit the larger throttle body. Also, given the size of throttle body you're planning on running, you would need to port the ada...
Thank you for your feedback and your support! We are glad that you you enjoy our products. We value loyal customers like you and appreciate your support. *It’s an appreciation which can go along the FAQ’s.
Assuming that the ECM and BCM is compatible, then it will be a simple case of linking the two using a Tech 2 tool. Otherwise the VATS of the ECM will need to be disabled.
Unfortunately we don't offer any form of finance at this point in time. This may change in future though.
The pushrod kit we supply for ROC605 and ROC606 is PR602 which are 12x 8.15 inch long pushrods. Therefore you have the correct set for the kit.
f you were looking at increasing power and valve train reliability, then the items listed would work well COMP turbo cams to suit Holden Supercharged
Good question. Given that buick/ecotec/l67 engines run roller lifters/roller camshafts, assembly lube is not required on the cam during installation. This is reflected by the fact that these cams don't come with assembly lube.
Should be great to see when it’s done.At the moment though, the alloytec has more scope for performance upgrades for higher power outputs. Standard though, the SIDI V6’s generally go better than the Alloytecs. Long story short, if you’re chasing big power...
We personally haven't to be honest. It's not something that we normally recommend for a L67 in general.
Unfortunately our BORED OUT 69MM THROTTLE BODY! For Holden VS-VY, won't fit.
Ideally you would want to run 98 octane (98RON) fuel. This would of course depend on the availability of this fuel and your budget.
If you're happy to solely run your car on petrol then certainly, from a performance perspective, it would be worthwhile to remove the LPG mixer.
To set the background, these engines run variable inlet and exhaust cam timing which can adjusted whilst they’re running. The way that Ghost Cam works is by controlling the cam position on idle, increasing overlap between intake and exhaust lobes on idle....
There are only two that come in the kit. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/WebRoot/ecshared01/Shops/mace/4E1D/A79D/D800/6FA9/364C/C0A8/D240/1463/PULLEY_INSTALL_instructions_pdf.pdf
Given you have a VY engine, you would have to get a VY throttle body to suit, in this case TB602
That device is known as " Positive Crank Case Vantilation Valve".
We only offer of CNC ported heads assembled at this point in time. This may change in future though.
There will be some compromises that will need to be made, but nothing major with the calibration 
This is certainly another option to consider. The great thing about the rocker upgrade is that they're easy to install, well within the reach of a home DIY, coupled with the fact that they represent gains of around 80% of those associated with a cam upgra...
Other items to consider would be our manifold insulators and a tune. If you wanted even greater gains, another item to consider would be cams
Assuming you get an L67 engine from a VT-VY, then it will bolt straight up, however you’ll need to make sure that you use the original flex plate that came with the L67 engine, given that they’re an externally balanced engine. If you’re planning on runnin...
Our alloytec manifold insulators will fit up to the CPR6 manifold, however there isn't enough room to run them together in a VZ Commodore, unless you were planning on modifying the bonnet. You would need to run different bolts then either of the ones supp...
There are no other mods required when installing our plenum spacer. They also work well on a standard engine.
Given the gasket like properties that the insulator material has, no additional gaskets are required. However silicone sealant is required to be used, which is included in the kit at no extra cost. For further details about this, please check out the fitt...
The package does not include the lifers or valve springs. In saying that we can supply these if required
Longer bolts are required and are included in our Alloytec manifold insulator kit at no extra cost. For further details about these and the installation process, please refer to the fitting instructions in the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au...
Longer bolts are required and are included in our Alloytec manifold insulator kit at no extra cost. For further details about these and the installation process, please refer to the fitting instructions in the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au...
The girdle is 12MM thick, therefore, longer bolts/studs will be required once the girdle is fitted. We don't supply these but they can be purchased from Fabre Competition Parts: http://fabre.com.au/ [http://fabre.com.au/]
They definitely are as the factory intake (including the HSV versions) are quite restrictive in comparison to ours. The air is captured from behind the headlight and in between the radiator. It's a pod filter.
Yes,It's for this reason that we supply different pushrods with our 1.98:1 ratio roller rocker kits.
Pushrods are required with our 1.9:1 ratio rockers when installing them on a VY Commodore, whether it's an ecotec or L67 engine.
The designs are similar, however ours is a genuine bolt on product (no irreversible mods to the bodywork required) http://www.maceengineering.com.au/WebRoot/ecshared01/Shops/mace/4E1D/A79D/B838/05A3/475B/C0A8/D240/145A/CAI_VTVY_V6_INSTALLATION_updated.pdf
These kits are only suitable for Alloytec engines, and not the later model SIDI type, at this point in time. In saying this though, you could install one of these kits provided you purchase or make a suitable MAF cartridge housing, which would need to rep...
They are as the filter is enclosed from the engine bay.
No adjustment is required prior to installation as they're a hydraulic lifter. The only thing required is to leave the lifters overnight in a bath of oil. These will fit your L67 engine without any problems.
They're similar to the factory gasket port sizes. The mean port size of our replacement aluminium ecotec/l67 intake manifold gasket (GSK601) is 25.6mm X 51.4mm. Please note that even if the port size is smaller, these gaskets can still be ported out.
Yes they are compatible http://www.maceengineering.com.au/CROW-CAMS-TO-SUIT-V6S-WITH-HIGHER-RATIO-ROCKERS
These rockers are only applicable up to VX models with ecotec and L67 engines. This is due to VY models with ecotec and L67 engines, having less clearance around the pushrod area.
Yes we can supply our 1.9 high ratio rockers to suit your VU. Yes we can supply 5/16" push rods, we recommend that these are used on VY era model ecotecs with our 1.9 rockers for the exact reason you mentioned.
We genuinely haven't had any issues with this tune when run on 98 octane fuel.
We genuinely never had any issues with this tune when running on 98 octane fuel.
Our higher ratio rockers are a direct bolt on replacement for the factory rockers, with no modifications required (no need for rocker cover spacers etc).
Unfortunately we don't have anything to suit at this point in time, however this may change in future
These injectors would possibly be fine on a stock/near stock engine running E85.  Unfortunately our tune won't.  For E85 you would need a custom tune because with E85 you use approx 30% more fuel and the AFR targets are totally different.
These items are reusable. All that is required is that they're cleaned properly (removing excess silicone etc.) prior to re-installation.
They are as the filter is enclosed from the engine bay
They genuinely do work, however there are other better value for money modifications to consider first such as manifold insulators etc.
If you were to run a cam with these rockers, then the cams which would be suitable are shown in the link below http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CAM607/SubProducts/CAM607

If you can afford to upgrade the factory cast manifolds/headers to tuned length extractors it would be good to get them done now. Otherwise the other exhaust upgrade option you've suggested is fine too. Please note that gutting the cats is illegal though ...
Unfortunately you're right, we don't have them anymore. Your best bet would be to contact the company below who may be able to assist you with a replacement crank. http://www.etpauto.com.au/
The motors themselves are very similar; as a result the calibration/tune between these two engines is about the same. As a result we can supply a memcal/tune to suit your requirements without any problems.
If we tune for the least performing fuel then you would be able to comfortably use any higher performing fuel. For arguments sake, if we were to tune your car using 95 octane fuel, then you would be able to comfortably use all of the fuels you've mentione...
Assuming that the car is currently running well, this is correct.
Assuming that you're referring to a performance memcal, then a memcal and a performance chip are the same thing
To find out more about the tuning process, please check out the steps on our tuning site below https://tuning.maceengineering.com.au
We certainly do make cams for the VZ alloytecs. Please be aware that when fitting these cams you will need to have the engine tuned to suit. Depending on where you are located we may be able to recommend a workshop/tuner. We currently have the cams on spe...

You can, however you would need to use our supercharger insulator in conjunction silicone sealant/gasket maker. For ease of installation using the appropriate gaskets and sealant would be ideal. It makes sense changing it while its off.
This can be done at home. We advise that you have access to basic hand tools and some basic fabrication tools and a workshop manual.
It certainly can. Generally what happens with our airbox when there is a back fire is that the pod filter comes off the end of the adapter tube, which can be governed based on how tight the clamp on the pod filter is set

Ideally you would, however it's not necessary to do so for the advertised gains to be achieved

Ideally you would, however, it's not necessary to do so for the advertised gains to be achieved.
With the right pipe adapters it would. In saying this though, if you're going to the trouble of installing a larger MAF, you would want to upgrade the piping right through.
Please note that this item will fit on supercharged VX Commodore. It will also require a custom tune, and not just a mail order tune/memcal
Generally no, unless your vehicle has extensive mechanical modifications done (very large cam upgrade, stroker kit etc.)
Not at all. In fact your engine should run more smoothly because your engine won't have to rev out as much due to the increase in low end torque.

No gaskets are required if you use holymer directly on the surface or any other suitable sealant
It comes with everything required for installation, we provide O2 sensor safe gasket sealant instead of gaskets.  If you would prefer to use two gaskets one above and one below the insulator then this method also works .You will need to pick these up from...
It will. To quantify these gains you would be looking at an increase in power/torque down low in the rev range of around 10%, while fuel consumption should improve by around 0.5L/100km depending on the car is driven of course.
It doesn't. In saying this though, a heat shield for this kit would be somewhat redundant given the fact that the pod filter is located outside of the engine bay and in the inner guard. 
It doesn't, however all you would need is a straight section of 3 inch tube of an appropriate length to join the filter with the existing intake ducting in place of the MAF. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/WebRoot/ecshared01/Shops/mace/4E1D/A79D/C667/9B...
It certainly improves the intake sound, bringing out more of the V8 induction roar :)
We're winding back our sponsorship deals, with all but the most extreme/exotic builds .We might consider sponsoring additional customers.
Assuming that you're referring to our ecotec high ratio rocker cams, as shown in the link below, then we can supply a computer/tune for only the Stage 1 cam. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CAM607/Su...

They need to soak in a bath of oil over night before installation.
With our kit, the engine light does not come on.  As it's a bolt on product which doesn't need any tune or modification.
The rockers won't adversely effect the tune, while the base ignition timing should be set to the 10 degrees in diagnostics mode

The rotor pack that we supply has new bearings and seals fitted. Other items such as a coupler and supercharger oil are available separately.
It will fit your G8, however it does not draw through your hood scoops
Assuming you have the L67 intake pipe from a VS superhcharged V6 engine, it will fit perfectly
If you have an LFW/LFX engine, then you won’t need an E85 specific tune (however there will be performance gains with one), however if you have an LF1/LLT engine then you’ll need an E85 specific tune otherwise damage will eventually occur. To find out wha...

Definitely, the plenum spacer improves air distribution inside the plenum.
Unfortunately not, however your gaskets from your original factory supercharged V6 (L67) rocker covers will work fine if they are in decent condition.In saying this though we can supply new replacement gaskets to suit
The rocker covers comes polished as standard.
The kit comes with a replacement harmonic balancer, two news pulleys and a new belt.
If you have a MY10 VE Commodore, which it sounds like you do, then it will fit
You will also require a laptop to run the programmer.
This is correct. You just need to make sure, using a torch down the push rod hole, that the end of the pushrod seating properly onto the lifter. They're normally self locating (pushrod into lifter), unless you insert the pushrod on a very obscure angle.
The 1.9:1 rockers will help out with mid to top end, along with part throttle responsiveness across the entire rev range.
The induction notes are similar due to the product design similarities
The Stage 3 COMP Cam with the memcal from the Stage 2 COMP Cam memcal would still be drivable, however you'd requre a custom tune. You could get an aftermarket computer, however the factory computer is more then capable if recalibrated to suit this cam.

Unfortunately, we no longer manufacture or stock these twin throttle body manifolds.
At this point in time they come with the TPS and idle air control valve (IAC), however this may change in future
No tune is required with this upgrade. It will run perfectly fine without a tune.
No. However for piece of mind if your engine has done over 250,000kms then you would want to consider replacing your valve springs.
The head bolts are sold separately you can find them listed here: http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/ARP601
We would need pictures of your hub, along with some overall dimensions to be able to determine if our pulleys will fit onto your current hub.
It will certainly assist in improving low to mid range torque production. In saying this though, another option to consider improving this aspect of your vehicle would be one of our manifold insulators.
This kit does not come with the lower intake manifold gaskets. It does come with with the associated supercharger gaskets though. To give you an idea as to what comes in the kit, please refer to the fitting instructions as shown in the link below. http://...
Given the bolts that come in this kit are M8, then they would not suit a Holden V8 engine as they run imperial rocker bolts.
The pulleys that we sell, as shown in the link below, are not compatible with the Yella Terra snout upgrade. In saying this though, they should have an equivalent 72mm pulley to suit. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectID=147010...

Yes, our tune does modify the shift settings.
This manifold insulator would definitely fit a 2006 Adventra LX6.Other Mace items which will be suitable to consider would be the 25mm version of this Insulator Kit, our cold air intake kit to suit and a reprogrammed computer.
All of the alloytec and SIDI V6 engines, all run on quad cams. While these engine run VVT (variable valve timing), there are certainly still gains to be had with going larger cams
When installing our plenum spacer to suit an LLT, we would not recommend that the metal gasket under the plenum around the 4 bolts is re-installed.
It would, as the temperature of the water is less than the cylinder head. In saying this though, even if there were made out of aluminum, there would still be gains to be had. You wouldn't be able to block those ports off I would imagine, given it would s...
You'd be better off getting an engine from the eastern states.
Unfortunately we only offer a single return per PCM purchased. Therefore you would be entitled to $50 cash back.

The power increase which you'll be looking at is around 5rwkw.

Not necessarily, as you can also use an appropriate gasket maker/silicone sealant instead. Even if you were to purchase specific gaskets to suit, we would still recommend some form of sealant to insure a leak free installation.
Our kit would certainly be compatable with our intercooler kits.
again this can be a common procedure: Any larger injectors fitted from factory we cannot support, the exception is with our remote custom tunes
If you're running 98 octane fuel then I would recommend our 10psi pulley kit with your setup. Worse case though you may have to go back to the standard chip/memcal, but would certainly be worth it :)
Factory boost is at 6psi. If your running your vehicle on 98RON then it will be a waste of time. If your running your vehicle on 95 fuel then the 8psi pulley is recommended regardless of extractors.
The standard 1.4L iTi Cruze is rated at; 103KW/200Nm (138hp/200Nm) at the engine. With the tune you arer looking at 130KW/250Nm (174hp/250Nm) at the engine depending on your modifications. You are looking at a Power loss of 25% at the wheels. Therefore th...

The kit comes with a smaller diameter harmonic balancer (underdriven balancer), belt tensioner, and replacement belt.
Assuming removing the vehicle anti theft system from the calibration/tune isn't an issue, then no.

The best thing with the these rockers is that you can upgrade the cam to suit such rockers in the future resulting in even larger gains.These rockers do not require a re-tune to work. So the chip you already have will be fine.
Replacing the camshaft approximately requires a day by someone who has mechanical experience and knowledge in regards to engine building. Therefore if you do not posses these skills, an experienced mechanic would be able to do the work. This particular fa...
Given the camshaft specification of the COMP Cams camshafts to suit ecotec and L67 engines we have on our website, they do have a decent lope on idle depending on how they're tuned.

Our bolt on CAI kit is arguable the highest performing air intake on the market to suit VZ Alloytecs
While this upgrade would perform better on colder nites then the standard setup, it wouldn’t necessarily work well under stop start conditions. This would be due to the fact that it would have the potential to draw in engine bay heat.
They need to be replaced with our shorter retainers, increasing clearance between the retainer and the valve stem seal

Given your approximately budget and desired outcomes, I would recommend a manifold insulator, 69mm throttle body and a tune to suit. A set of rockers and a CAI kit would certainly help to complement some of the previously suggested items
For and foremost, you'll require a custom tune for your bored out AFM. Running boost higher then 10psi will require a custom tune
For your car the suitable intercooler setup will be the VT-VY kit. Some of the brackets are different between the earlier and later model vehicles.
There are no extra difficulties associated with installation. The torque curve with these cams works well with the factory torque converter and diff ratio. In saying this though, these too could also be upgraded for improved driveability
It won't burn out the clutches in the transmission. However it would be a good idea to install a large transmission cooler regardless if the car is modified or not, as heat is what causes automatic transmissions to fail
We have with great success. Ideally though, we would need an additional tune to suit the nitrous.
Great, happy to hear that!! What a shame, however we understand it is difficult to obtain this fuel in more remote areas. You could certainly do that if you like. A custom tune on your current setup with 95 fuel is another way this issue can be solved.
It would be cheaper to purchase a short belt then to purchase a larger pulley though. We can supply you with either a shorter belt or a replacement pulley if you wish.

With an appropriate tune they can, however would not recommend it on a internally standard engine for long term reliability
It you're running a low boost kit (less then 7psi) then you won't have to change anything internally for long term reliability
To be honest ANY mod is techincally illegal unless it complies with Australian Standards whether you're on you're Ps or opens.

Given your proposed modifications, I wouldn’t worry about replacing the injectors. You’ll just need to make sure that the factory ones you have are in good working order. If you decide to go with larger injectors then you’ll require a custom tune.
No, however the data for the long term fuel trims will be erased, but that is no big deal as they’ll b re-learned. This happens regardless if the PCM is stock or aftermarket.
In regards to which engine would be easier to transplant in place of your V6 ecotec, the L67 engine could potentially be considerably easier by far. I say this as the L67 engine would essentially bolt straight in as a replacement for the ecotec, coupled w...

You would certainly have a sportier feel under spirited driving conditions.
This kit (part number: CAI854) is not currently available online, however we can organise the purchase of this for you via email or over the phone
We can supply an Orssom OTR to suit so that's not a problem
A Memcal will help out. However, if you're planing upgrading your vehicle with additional modifications then you should hold off on a tune.

We can do this without any problem. If you clearly let us know that what features/items you’d like disabled then we'll be able to help. This will be fine.
Assuming that the car runs fine with no engine warning lights coming up on the dash or vacuum leaks, then the increase in induction noise when running a larger throttle body is normal
The maximum PSI pulley that we would recommend on a stock factory supercharged v6 (L67) running on 98 octane fuel would be a 10PSI pulley.

We currently have these available, the price is $1490.These kits are more expensive then the earlier 5Ls is because they run a roller camshaft and lifters which is more expensive then the much more common flat tappet cams of the earlier 5L
We haven't tuned to suit that cam so unfortunately it's probably not something we can assist you with.
We cannot recalibrate your speedo with our memcal. You'll need a tech 2 tool to recalibrate your speedometer (VT-Onwards), or you'll need to use a speedometer correction box
Correct, however the other one looks like it's on its way out as well. This is basically what I've mentioned before. You'll need to see an auto elec. Don't know of any around your area.

it sounds like a lazy lifter. We can supply you with thinner pedestals to possibly help overcome this however it may still not go away. Am happy to supply them though
Assuming you've received socket headed cap bolts (which require an Allen key), then they need to be torqued up to 23ft/lb.
That gain would be in conjunction with the tune.
The memcal will suit the spacer and throttle body, however the air flow meter upgrade will require a custom tune.It would be $15

Your best bet would be our Stage1 COMP Cams to suit V6 Ecotec (as per the ad), which should create a nice lumpy idle, as shown in the link below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwYUXsjFmCg
The stage 2 Comp Cams cam certainly does have a noticeable lope at idle. Please see the youtube video on the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CCP618/SubProducts/CCP618 Please don't hesitat...
On a stock motor we recommend a maximum of 10psi with 98ron fuel and the factorytune. However, considering you intend to fit a cam you will need a custom tune, in that case you will be able to run a slightly smaller pulley due to the increased efficiency ...
I would not recommend this as the installed height would be wrong with the factory springs Either you leave the retainers, or replace the the springs and retainers
In regards to the calibration that we offer it's transparent, in that the dealership cannot tell if the car has been flashed with a custom tune before In saying this though, I would recommend flashing the car back to standard when you take the car back in...
Unfortunately we can't supply you with a custom made intercooler plate to suit your M62 supercharger
The power train light should not come on at all. Please refer to page 11 of the fitting instructions by following the link below, in particular the plastic sleeve that goes on the end of the throttle shaft. This MUST be on. http://www.maceengineering.com....
You should achieve such power gains, if not even higher gains because of the charger (assuming the camshaft is installed and adjusted correctly.
Unfortunately the stage 3 crow cam is designed for a Naturally Aspirated engine and isn't suitable for the L67. We can supply our Comp Cam package to suit the L67, please follow the link below; http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?Objec...
From experience with the MACE/VCM OTR and Orssom OTR, they're compatible with our 25mm manifold insulators due to their rubber/silicone joiner design.
If you were to purchase these cams by themselves you could certainly get your current computer/memcal reprogrammed to suit depending on the model Commodore you have.
If you were to purchase or loan our supercharger pulley tool, as shown in the link below, then it would be suitable for your application. Pulley Removal And Installation Tool http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectID=1469429
Assuming that you're on a tight budget, and your current lifters and pushrods are in good working order, then I wouldn't worry about upgrading them. Other items to consider upgrading though would be valve springs, retainers and timing chain set
It depends on the VE sub model you have, anything equal to or new then a MY08.5 VE and we can tune it. In saying this though, at some stage next month or the month after we’ll also be able to remote custom tune the entire VE range. Even if we can’t, HP Tu...
You won't, along as the transmission setup is from a standard equivalent vehicle. For arguments sake if you went with a custom transmission, with mounts etc, then it would technically need to be certified
While reassembly of the manifold with the spacers will be tight, there should not be any clearance issues with these spacers (MI801 and MI805) when fitted on a BA, BF or FG Falcon
It's a straight bolt on item.  It will run fine without a retune.
If Holden attempt to flash your engine and transmission controllers with the latest calibration they won’t be able to if you already have our calibration flashed.
If you were to take your vehicle in to Holden for servicing, our advice would be to flash the car back to standard.
All the parts needed for the job come in the kit. Please note though that some brackets/linkages may need to be modded to suit, depending on the Ford 6 you have.
Using one or our memcals, you can get away with your existing loom by modifying it slightly and not running the boost actuator. This would be an ideal solution, as it would save heaps of time, along with reducing the likelihood of any complications attrib...
Once the tool is returned back in working order you can allocate the bond money against the tool towards any upgrade of ours you wish.
If you were to purchase the throttle body directly from us, then we can reprogram your existing MACE memcal to suit for at no cost. Postage would be required to be paid to send the memcal back up though. In saying this though, this may be subject to chang...
You would be looking at gains of around 60-70rwhp for the proposed parts
If you have a manual VY V6 then it be fine as is. If you have an auto then, depending on your driving style, would need to get ecu reprogrammed to suit. We can supply replacement computers calibrated to suit our larger throttle body
It will, however it will require a different memcal to suit, which we can supply
The shift points will change relative to the vehicle speed. The shift points will not change relative to the engine rpm.

Generally the LIM porting we offer is a generic port. This isn't a problem from a fluid flow (performance) perspective unless the manifold porting is smaller then the outlet of the intercooler plate, which we've never come across before. The only time we ...
Unfortunately no, the 85MM MAF requires a custom MAF tune, which can only be tuned / mapped by your local dyno tuner. Plus your current piping will need to be upgraded to be able to support this larger MAF
Assuming that your engine is currently in good working else, then nothing else besides what you've already mentioned
With an Ecotec/L67 engine, there should be sufficient tolerance in the lifter to be able to compensate for this. The only way to comfirm if this would be an issue though would be to measure the lifter crush to confirm if it's still within spec. Failing th...

Considering your power goals I would suggest that forced induction is your best bet to attain your goals.
It would be I guess. I can understand this. In saying this though, if you have an L67, then I would really only recommend one of our COMP cams as they do work extremely well on an L67 engine. Anything else, and you honesly would be better off putting your...
The cams would be the same, however you would need a VT cam and chip package, unless you’ve changed the wiring loom and computer to suit a VY as well, therefore you’ll need a package to suit a VY instead
This is correct. The reason we go MAFless on LS1 engines, is due to greater performance gains associated with there removal.
That price will get you a nice, fresh blueprinted engine though with cam/springs of your choice :)
The compression ratio available with the entry level stroker kit is around 9.0:1 While it's higher than factory, the fact that the engine capacity is being increased means that the boost pressure will drop due to the limited capacity of the M90 superchar...
It is a waste of time to be honest. The largest size that we recommend going on a street driven L67 engine is between 75mm and 85mm

The "rats ass racing" painting was custom made be a local engraver. It's not a service that we offer unfortunately as was only included in the ad to represent the possibilities with this product
Unfortunately we don't at this point in time. However this may change in future.
The process is exactly the same as fitting our manifold spacer except obviously changing the plugs whilst the manifold is off.
Ideally we would recommend our 12mm manifold insulator and 6.35mm plenum spacer.
he most you can run is a 10psi pulley For more info please check out the link below:http://support.maceengineering.com.au/Knowledgebase/Article/View/13/0/what-the-maximum-amount-of-boost-you-can-run-on-a-standard-engine
The price of the cam is the same regardless of stage purchased.
This is true, we do loan the tool out for free to customers who have purchased the boost upgrade kit from us, as I'd mentioned Sometime customers ask us questions on ads that aren't necessarily directly related to the ad. My interpretation was that he pur...
Unfortunately, we don't offer rebuild kits to suit (LS1) and available transmissions found behind this engine, nor can we recommend any rebuild kits to suit unfortunately.
The PCM we supply you is a reprogrammed factory PCM to suit your mods, where possible
Our Roller Rockers kits definitely come complete to do both cylinder heads, not just one, as the photos in the ad may suggest
Definitely, which is how we designed these cams
With the right tools (which we now have to loan out for free), you can replace the cams without taking the front engine cover off which is around 4-5 labour. If the front engine cover has to come off allow for around 8-10 of labour
If would, admittedly though they start making power at around the 2.5-3k mark

Ideally it would be good to get a tune done at the same time. In saying this though no fault codes should come up with our OTR.Though if you're on a budget and have a manual VE V6, then it should not be a problem running the OTR in the short term.
These memcals are not standard but performance tunes.You will need to notify us of all the modifications done to your car once you decide to purchase our product so we can calibrate the memcal specifically to suit your vehicle.
This item for auction is the top spacer that goes between the top plenum chamber and the intake. The lower intake manifold insulator (between the intake manifold and cylinder heads) is available separately
There are a number of workshop in the US that we work with, however we’re based in Australia
Possibly in future, however there are no plans for this at this point in time.
All of our ecotec roller rockers have been designed to fit underneath the factory rocker covers. No spacer is required
The HSV memcal is ok, but there is certainly opportunity for improvement over that calibration.
We just need to clarify a couple thing first as we have a couple options that will suit. Are you aiming to use the stock tune or a custom tune?
It's not, and you'll still see genuine gains with the intercooler kit and standard rockers If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask Kindest Regards, Steve
That is correct, the 25mm plenum spacer is designed for supercharged/turbo applications. We highly recommend people go for the 12mm plenum spacer for N/A applications.

The specs for CAM616, as shown in the link below is 210 degrees of duration at 0.050" of lift. Depending on the intake and exhaust system, these cams would certainly create a nice note on idle http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?Object...
Yes it is possible however you need our fitment kit and you need to be running our 6mm manifold insulator. The price for the kit is $180
If the manifold gasket your referring to is the manifold insulator we cannot make it bigger, however it is easy to port.
You would require to get it done. We can port the insulator at no extra cost with the rest of the components.
Assuming that you're referring to the heads as shown in the link below, it's not possible to purchase the heads without the other components at this point in time. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/HDS...
You certainly can, please check out the link below:https://www.facebook.com/MaceEngineering/photos_stream#!/photo.php?fbid=10150942431903032
It is. Ideally though it would require an appropriately upgraded fuel system (fuel pump, injectors, ethanol compatible fuel hose) and a custom tune to suit.
To avoid having to running a thinner oil pump cover, you can run multiple timing cover gaskets instead.
It is. Ideally though it would require an appropriately upgraded fuel system (fuel pump, injectors, ethanol compatible fuel hose) and a custom tune to suit.
t you're running at least a 10 psi pulley then it will be work while. In saying this though, depending on your current mods, it might be worth while undertaking other upgrades first
We're not certified to provide engineer certificates in any state or territory
We technically don't have a memcal to suit our Stage 3 COMP Cam to suit an ecotec at this point in time. However we should be able to provide you with something that would improve drivability in the short term till you got the car custom tuned.
Yes MI631 is the correct part number for the 25mm manifold insulator to suit an LY7/Alloytec.
It is. This is reflected by the fact that this product would still be covered with our lifetime warranty even when used with LPG.
The cams kits in the link below come with the cam, lifters, springs (stage 2 and 3 only) and memcal http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CCP801/SubProducts/CCP801 If you have any other questions please do...

Yes, it is. You're looking at a discount of $40.
Yes it is 100% suitable. Pickup of parts is definitely possible, however please call to arrange a pick up time 1300 GO MACE (1300 466 223).The best price that we can offer in case of pickup is $ 250.G279
The Manifold spacer is installed in between the upper and lower inlet manifold and not between the cylinder head and lower manifold
Yes the material is a type of phenolic. It is 6.35mm thick.
Generally speaking no, however if you consistently use the additional power it will

The supplied oil spring in the kit is in fact standard. Yes, It is a common occurrence in these engines. You can order it over email, via our website or over the phone - whichever way you prefer.
Yes this will fit.The cost of delivery to Rockingham WA 6168 will be $22.
Given you have a MY12 VE Commodore then it won't fit. In saying this though, we'll have an OTR to suit over the coming month. Please keep an eye our on our website or Facebook page for updates.
Yes the plenum spacer is suitable for your ecotec V6. In saying that we suggest buying and fitting the manifold insulator before the plenum spacer. the plenum spacer is a good supporting mod for the manifold insulator. You can find more information on the...
Stock exhaust is OK, if anything a nice 2.5" cat back exhaust would be ideal for a street driven car.

Unfortunately it's not possible to have a MAFless tune done with the factory engine management system on a Alloytec.
We will have to talk to the tuner about tuning engine over run. A decent high flow exhaust with good quality "straight flow" type mufflers will also help with this.
There isn't an aftermarket manifold to suit at the moment. In saying this though, you can port your current manifold for additional gains.
We don’t have such certification, however your best bet would to contact Holden direct.
There would be no conflict with the OEM hood using the 12mm plenum spacer and 25mm manifold insulator provided the engine cover is not installed.
The difference between the two plenum spacers is that the thicker one offers greater air distribution between cylinders, however this is at the expense of throttle response. This isn't a problem when running the thicker of the two plenum spacers with boos...
In regards to higher ratio rockers for our range of COMP Cams to suit ecotec and L67 engines, we generally don't recommend them. However if you were trying to squeeze as much power out of your build as possible, then we would advise either a 1.7:1 to 1.8:...

The way to exactly tell is if you send a birds eye view photo of the push rod cup. We can then determine the ratio of these rockers. However generally speaking rockers which come with push rods are likely to be 1.98:1 rockers.
Nothing else is required to run the thermostat. You can install it and go. However, for greater cooling gains you could get the tune re-calibrated such that the thermo fans can come on at a lower operating temperature.
The main difference is that the IAC valve port is larger on the VY V6 throttle bodies compared with the earlier throttle bodies. As a result you cannot use an earlier V6 IAC valve on a later model VY V6 throttle body.
Generally speaking, you would be looking at improvements in torque by around 10% and 13% for the 12 and 25mm manifold insulators respectively. The feedback people have given us by upgrading from the 12 to 25mm manifold insulator, has been genuinely positi...
The performance gains with our memcal as a percentage would be similar when running either LPG or Petrol.
Improvement in torque would be around 10% and 13% respectively.
Improvement in torque would be around 10% and 13% respectively.

The S2 cam to suit the rockers will certainly give you a lumpy idle.
We do recommend that you do the tune and TB at the same time.
You can reuse your current gasket, however you would need to apply sealant on the mating surfaces just to make sure that it's sealed properly.
Assuming you're referring to our COMP Cam and tune package, then we would not recommend a set of 1.9:1 ratio rockers with this cam as it would cause engine damage. If you're referring to the CROW Cam and tune package to suit an ecotec then it will be fine...
No need to be concerned as the box is identical for both V6 and V8 variants.
No other modifications are required with these items to work effectively, you just bolt these in and driveIf you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask. Kindest Regards, Steve
No gasket is used for the oil pump cover, even in standard form.
We recommend the 12mm plenum spacer for n/a applications. While the 25mm plenum spacer would work on a NA engine, throttle response would be doughy therefore we would not recommend it for a NA engine
This would depend on your budget and requirements (?)
While this manifold insulator kit could replace the factory O-ringed gaskets between the plastic manifold and aluminium cast adaptor, it's good practice to simply retain the factory O-ringed gaskets when installing the manifold insulator kit.
Unless in a specific kit, the cams generally come by themselves. The reason for this is that it give people the flexibilty to tailor the cam installation to suit their needs/requirements
Yes, they can be, as they have been done in the past without any problems.

Thank you for the work offer. Unfortunately given current our workload, we're no longer available to provide custom fabrication of this nature anymore. You best bet would be to contact a local automotive fabricator or a general engineering workshop
Unless there are heavy score marks inside the rotor housing of the blower then I wouldn't worry about it. To do the job properly the surface would need to be built up and precisely honed. Hone it alone, and you'll end up with an under performing superchar...
It would certainly help. In saying this though, to be able to best select a cam kit under these conditions, it would depend on the revs that the car currently sits at under these conditions(?).

We do offer much better support then overseas suppliers, along with an element of responsibility in the event any issues occur.
Unless you take your car to redline on a consistent basis, then I would go the 25mm manifold insulators as the car will be more pleasurable to drive in the low to mid range
Depending on the sub model VE V6 you have, we can provide you with an OTR to suit.

The gains between the products would be quite similar, due to product design similarities
You would get more top end with the MACE-VCM OTR over the ORSSOM OTR, plus stronger bottom end torque with MACE-VCM OTR due to the included manifold insulator. In saying this though, you can always install a manifold insulator with an ORSSOM OTR if you wa...

If your supercharger is currently in good working order (not noisy), then there would be no need to get your supercharger rebuilt before you get the boost upgrade kit.
We will be able to supply a recalibrated tune such that the fault codes don't come up, assuming that the performance upgrades you've installed are causing the issues
If you are running boost we recommend a 25mm plenum spacer and 12mm manifold spacer, as the thicker plenum spacer does offer even better air distribution between cylinders, which is more critical in boosted cars making lots of HP. Performance wise the 12m...
These mods would work with an upgraded memcal well. The only thing that we would recommend though would be to clean your MAF. To give you an idea as to the process, please refer to the link below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded
Yes, you're right on that one. It should not lose that much. But, it mostly depends on how hot the outlet air temperature of the supercharger is and that how well does your A2A intercooler kit cools.
Unfortunately we don't have any replacement engines at this point in time, however this may change in future.
Assuming that you have a quality LPG vapour injection system, then it won’t be an issue
That is correct. The details for the required fuel rail spacers are shown below 12.7mm long spacer tube with a 10mm OD and a 7.6mm ID (Part No: MI601-2) Qty:4

With the 1.98:1 ratio rockers you'll be able to achieve gains of around 16 to 26kW. Please note as you have a VY V6, these rockers aren't suitable without modifying your cylinder heads We can however recommend our 1.9:1 ratio rockers with pushrods, achiev...
The manifold insulator would improve torque/responsiveness down low. Fuel economy should improve, depending on how the car is driven.

I believe that that's part of the crank case ventilation. The problem with it being cracked is not so much due to the crankcase ventilation, but the fact that it will cause a vacuum leak in the manifold. This result in a poor idle
Our stage 3 Cam and Chip package, are provided with our matching tune for that cam, model and transmission type. Unfortunately we don't offer a chip/tune to suit our L67 supercharged cams.
Given the octane rating of LPG, it wouldn't be a problem. In fact, you would technically be able to run more boost then 10psi, however, to play it safe we would only recommend you to stick with 10psi. It would definitely help.

Yes, it'd be ready to go once installed. You just need to wait for the silicone sealant to dry as per the manufactures specification on the back of the packet
We update spark, fuel and transmission characteristics to take these modifications in to account. Please note that our memcals are only guaranteed to work with our throttle bodies only.
A memcal basically stores the engine management system's calibration/tune, which tells how the car's engine management system is to operate under certain engine conditions.
That hole is not applicable to Australian L67 engines, therefore it presence can be ignored.

Generally yes, only because it can take a number of days for the calibration updates to be ready each time
Any MAF larger then factory is fine, provided your tuner is happy to use it.
The fact that your Orrsome OTR on your VE SIDI V6 is causing
It varies, however for a Cruze limited modifications, the logs would need to be around the 15-30min of mixed driving
Correct, with the exception of the silencer ports which we'll leave as they are
Going larger injectors at this point in time won't give you performance gains, and will only create complications
A lot more work involved. With time scarce these days, it makes it hard to be able to offer this service directly. BUT you'll definitely be in good hands :)
This is correct and also how all of the local M90 supercharger housing are
These cams suit both the 1.9's and the 1.98's
It will fit your VE MY09.5 alloytec without any problems
Assuming that you’ll be installing the L67 top end on your ecotec (cylinder heads, manifold blower etc.), then it will fit.
he composite manifold is good and can be ported/modified a little, which is fortunate as the CPR6 manifold would not suit your engine due to the different port geometry
There may be an issue with one of the sensors for the ABS, as for the hazard lights it could be related to the Body control Module. It also sounds like your BCM is playing up or possibly a bad earth.
The rocker bolts should be tightened up to the specified 23ft/lb. This can be done accurately using a torque wrench
Please note that the picture which is used to represent PB610 is of a general balancer only (not exact representation of PB610). The balancer does come with ridges for the crank angle sensor (reluctor wheel), while it only supports a 6 rib belts.

I haven't scene one like this before in person. From my understanding, you have a real late GENIII M90 supercharger. Can you please confirm what vehicle the blower originated from?
They're not, in that they're both the same colour. In saying this though they're definitely suitable for inlet and exhaust
Yes, it will always be around these figures.
Yes that is correct.
It won't, as about 99% of the OBDII cables on the market don't have the ability of being able to write to the ECM/PCM. Even if they did, there is a good chance that they won't be compatible with our software
Given you have a 6 speed automatic transmission, our tune can adjust it without any problems. Your general Holden dealer would not be able to reprogram the transmission like we would.
With a ecotec/l67 and Holden V8s, this is the case.
Unless you suspect a spun bearing or are having issues I would keep the stock bearings. No need to upgrade or replace roller rockers unless there is a current issue or very high km. Crow Cams Roller Lifters $255 Other items to consider would be Premium Vi...
Unless otherwise stated, our manifold insulators reusable items. All that is required is that they're cleaned properly (removing excess silicone etc.) prior to re-installation.
You would be looking at at least 700rwhp. In saying this though you would want to upgrade the conrods to a brand such as Carrillo. To give you an idea as to what's possible, please check out the link below. http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/mace-enginee...

You can oil it if you wish however its not required
These rocker covers 100% have the injector cutouts to suit the supercharged heads, which fortunately also suit ecotec cylinder heads.
If you were purchase one of our complete air to air intercooler kits (AA605 or AA606), then the accessory kit (AA602) is included
Unfortunately no. We would not be able to do that.
This item, part number MI604, would suit your EA Falcon provided it has multi-point fuel injection. Included in this kit is the manifold insulator, longer bolts

There are hardly any differences between the engines specifically, only around the auxiliary components that bolt up to these engines as they are vehicle specific. For argument's sake, you can't put a set of VX exhaust manifolds on a VS.

In regards to gains in fuel economy/efficiency these are possible, depending on the calibration regime. Given you have a manual though, this is easily achieved by lowering the boost level below factory when the cruise control is active,
If a custom tune is done then fuel economy (depending on how it’s driven) and driveability will be similar to the factory.
You would be looking at gains of around 50-60rwkw
Given that the ARP connecting rod fasteners need to be torqued higher then the factory items, you will very likely need to resize the big end of the connecting rod due to the fact that it will become more oval in shape and out of factory spec
Conservatively speaking, these pistons would be good for around 6500RPM.
We only have one stage of cam at this point in time.Certainly ,it has a good sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVc4EnqPoW4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4L8W9wNuFg

Depending on your budget, an LS1 throttle body with a ported elbow would be the way to go. Otherwise, the 69mm throttle body with the factory elbow works well
The highest ratio rockers you can run on your VY V6 Calais are our 1.9:1 ratio rockers with pushrods. For further information about this item please refer to the link below. http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectID=1469592
The max boost that you'll be able to run is approximately 14 to 15 psi.
The outlet air temperature of supercharger would increase considerably
The outlet air temperature of supercharger would increase considerably.
In regards to gains, you would achieve greater gains down low (at lower engine speeds) with the manifold insulators, while the throttle body would mainly improve gains top end. In saying this about the throttle body though, it would also improve throttle ...
While we have many performance products to suit the Alloytec, given your torque requirements, our manifold insulators would arguably be your best choice. For more information about these available products, please check out the links below. COLD AIR INTAK...

In regards to gains you, would be looking at around 10% and 13% improvement in torque down low for each respectively.
The max boost that you'll be able to run is approximately 14 to 15 psi.
These parts which are mentioned below can give you better performance. Comp Cams http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/mace/Products/CAM604/SubProducts/CAM604 [http://www.maceengineering.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?O...
We do not deal with second hand superchargers so we are not sure what they are worth. It will depend on the type of supercharger your after. You can have a look at ebay or related automotive forums (such as Just Commodores) to determine the price of secon...
The 25mm plenum spacer is designed for blown applications, for N/A applications we find the 25mm plenum spacer reduces throttle response to much and therefore recommend the 12mm spacer instead.  It's the opposite for the manifold insulators/spacers.  Ther...
Please note that Ultra high ratio roller rockers 1.98:1 ratio provide more lift and hence more power gains over the high ratio roller rockers 1.9:1 ratio, Moreover you may find the complete details by following the below mentioned links: Ultr High Ratio R...
There is about 3-4% difference in down low torque.
There is about 3-4% difference in down low torque.
Technically there is no tool that is needed to install them, however we do offer a tool which reduces the installation time by around half. The tool is a GM item; it's part number is EN-48313. Fitting instructions are available to download from the link b...
The 1.98's make more power then the 1.9's top end, by around an extra 5rwkw. In saying this though, the 1.9's do more more power then the 1.98's in the low end power band. Therefore, unless you take your car close to redline on a consistent basis then I w...
Price aside, the main differences between the kits is that ours is easier to install and is completely reversible, in that none of the body work needs to be permanently modified via the use of self tapping screws etc. In regards to performance, there woul...
Generally debit card/credit card are quicker.
You can get away with using silicone sealant when installation our supercharger/manifold insulator to suit an L67. Ideally though you would want to run gaskets in conjunction with silicone sealant as it would make any future disassemble easier along with ...
Depending on the OTR kit, generally you would be required to replace the top radiator mounting brackets which are normally supplied
Depending on the OTR kit, generally, you would be required to replace the top radiator mounting brackets which are normally supplied.
All of the items you've listed would be helpful with improving bottom end torque/driveability with the exception of the extractors, as they tend to improve top end at the expense of bottom end torque.
In order to prevent this from happening you can assemble the rocker cover and gasket on the bench with some silicone sealant, allowing it to set. Once the sealant has set, you'll then be able to install them back on the cylinder heads without fear of the ...

You would need to take the original flex plate and your flywheel to an engine shop so that they can mirror/match balance the flywheel to the original flex plate.
The 12mm plenum spacers are recommended for naturally aspirated (NA) applications, while the 25mm plenum spacers are recommended for supercharged/turbocharged applications.

About the 4.5 sec mark give or take a little
If you're adamant about keeping the engine cover then I would recommend sticking with just the 12mm manifold insulator. While you could run both the 12mm plenum spacer and 12mm manifold insulator and maintain your engine cover, it and or the bonnet liner ...
When installing a MACE/VCM OTR manifold spacers are required. Either the 6.35 or 12mm manifold insulators would work well on an LLT engine, or if you had an LF1/LFW/LFX engine you could squeeze a 25mm insulator with a bit of work.
The reprogrammed memcal
We would recommend our 1.9:1 ratio rockers for your application
In regards to power gains between the two, an appropriately sized cam (such as our line of COMP Cams) would yield more gains then our 1.98:1 ultra high ratio rockers. In saying this though the cam option is also a more expensive one to do properly, especi...
We have 3 different sizes based on people requirement (desire to keep engine cover at the expense of extra low end torque for example) along with different vehicle
This ORRSOM OTR package requires a tune because the MAF signal characteristics are substantially different then standard, causing the engine light to come on due to the excessive long term fuel trims required to correct the commanded air fuel ratio. The M...
The IAC (idle air control) valve is larger on VY V6 as compared to VS-VX that's why it won't fit into VS-VX.
The Comp Cams cam have a lot more lobe lift that standard cams which means with the standard 1.6 rockers you will have a total of .520"/.536" Valve lift (in/ex). Standard L67 heads with #105 valve springs/ Manley retainers will handle a maximum of .545" v...
Because it sits too wide, fouling up against the bonnet vents.
Both of these cams work well with the standard torque converter, however the Stage 1 cam is better suited to the standard torque converter.
Yes it will be ok. Just note with a NA specific cam it will generally bleed off more boost then say boost specific cam or a standard item
Not tune is required with our manifold insulators, unless clearly specified in the ad.
You won't need a tune straight away after installing a larger throttle body. The only time you would consider a tune would be for additional performance gains or to correct the shift points of an automatic transmission. The latter occurs as the throttle b...

You will require injector rail spacers or you could run aftermarket fuel rails.
Any pulley larger then a 16psi pulley would require the snout the be machined down.
Unless you're budgeting for a full engine recondition, I would highly recommend that you get a good complete L67 engine, instead of upgrading the specifications of your ecotec to that of a factory supercharged 6 engine. Otherwise if can give a budget to w...

If the right size belt is used they will be fine.
Generally in a NA and low boost application, you can get away with using the factory springs. However you would want to upgrade these as well, from a reliability perspective. Ideally you would run 130# springs and a double row timing chain set. Otherwise ...
Yes it definitely will.Yes these cams definitely give it more of a lumpy sound.
