Do you want your car to be a well set up, well balanced powerful streeter/track car or a bohemath thats only any good for burnouts!? :hmm:


In my mind theres no discussion on the options,.....but hey, I've already been bitten by the rotor bug! :P

^^^^^^^^ very true... but, if its a burnout/street car your going to be flogging the pants off it and things will break! I would go the commo motor mainly because there dime a dozen, you break it you get another one.


If your planning on driving this daily then the rotor is the way to go, no doubt about it.

I don't know how many of the people have owned a v6 rolla that have commented, but i use mine as a daily driver and its not as bad as everybody makes out, Just upgrade springs and shocks in the front. Mine is also standard height with 13" standard tires, Its happy cornering at 110kmh on the highway and being in tassie all the roads are fun cornering. Prob better fuel economy than a rotor uses less fuel than my 20V rolla

Well I don't know if it will make any difference but we have just bolted the complete VS Commodore K-Frame, suspension and engine into a KE55 with little difficulty needed to move a couple of bolts but apart from that straight in.
