    G'day all I have an opportunity to have adapters kits made to suit Subaru gearbox to v6 Holden rover v8 plus the possibility for other engines. If you are interested can you PM me to discuss your thoughts & engine preference the cost is yet to be determined but probably around the cost to go to vw box. I think if I was going v6 in a kombi I would defiantly do it because of the 5th gear & strength. this would give you a vehicle that would be reliable quick towing improved & a bit better economy plus the all-round availability of v6 bits in particular. Keen to hear your opinions.

    Gday cbu No just the adapter I have left a message with Todd about being a conflict with him waiting to hear back from him. The reason I looked at this option was the daughter having a change of thought with her kombi as to towing her vintage heavy caravan with the ej22 as compared to a v6 crumpldoor. I should know more after I talk to Todd about his side. I have source for v6 motors second hand & I'm looking at supplying a modified vw xmember exchange to suit the kit but that will come along down the track.

    G'day all. spoke to Todd this evening & he has no problem with me developing kits to suit he was extremely helpful with advice on the needs for accuracy in the depth of adapter for flywheel etc so off to Sydney in the next couple of weeks to sort out some of the finer details if anyone in Sydney around the Liverpool area has a stuffed ej block with a crank in it I could get cheap please let me know save me taking my set up block as carry on in a shopping bag.

    No I haven't. I am developing adapter plates for aircooled type 1 and type 4 motors, wasserboxers, VW inline 4 cylinders, GMH Ecotec 4 cylinders (2.0, 2.2, 2.5) and Chevy V8's. More than happy for you to go ahead and do adapter plates for V6 commodore motors - I think they would go well mated to the 5 speed.

    G'day Ernie, SEMA was unbelievable. 3 solid days 9am to 5pm just to look at each stand.
    Tyres must be the most boring thing, because they had the best promo girls in that hall. :)
    Everyone should go once in their life.
    Looking forward to seeing your V6 adaptor plates!

    G'day all. Todd your right a bout tyre display's The girls are what sell them. I hope to get down to Sydney next month to start on project. Dellows have a cnc machine that can turn out a flywheel in about 14 minutes should be good to watch. When this gets going I will go down to watch the 1st being made. might try to catch up with you while I'm there
