    LS are a good engine and make easy power but a good Holden V8 sounds better every day of the week (more so with VN heads).

    A VE-VF Commodore drives and handles better than our old nuggets could...

    Even with an auto mine jumps around a bit idling in gear but the sound is pretty hard to beat.

    Is yours a Q? Mine is a 74 and had rear spring issues from near new. Car was bought new by my grandfather.

    I don't know the stock specs but I wouldn't want stock rear springs in a HQ. The factory rear springs sagged quite badly from near new. When I was a kid my Dad owned what is now my HQ and I remember...

    Mine is 308ci (+.040") and similarish to Paul's, with throttle body efi it made 282rwhp on the dyno and ran 13.3 @ 100 in my heavy HQ (1687KG on the scales at Sydney Dragway), when I went back to...

    It would be hard to do a direct comparison but how about some sort of early vs VN heads on the same short motor (other than camshaft).

    In an occasionally used street car or race car I think it will probably take a while for it to be an issue. If you did want to sort it out you could run the cable from the backside of the carb and...

    The only thing Holley about that is the box. That's a cheap chinese knock off carb, I wouldn't take it if it was free. A 3310S is silver not gold and has all the vacuum secondary gear.

    11.93v should be enough but it would tell more of a story knowing the actual battery voltage at the same time. Would be good to know the voltages at the coil & battery while running too. I don't...

    Did you do anything else to the car around the same time you swapped the carb?

    I think you'd be unlucky to get 2 carbs with the same fault. Is it possibly an ignition issue? I'm thinking it could...
