    Looks really neat.

    What sort of economy are you getting out of it? I bet it's better than my old 4.2 GQ. 24L/100km on petrol and 33L/ 100km on gas - after a tune and gas reco!!

    I'm thinking the same ,I dont want to put a TD4.2 , too slow, too thirsty.
    If I could get 15/100k on the hwy packed up I'd be happy
    04 ST 3lt auto, not enough Mods to keep me happy, but getting there

    I get less than 15 l per hundred in my td42ti towing my bike and all our gear out to our farm. Our ss l98 (6 litre 6 speed auto) powered wagon returns 15 litres in town and 10 on the highway in a patrol it'll 've more.
    Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.
    Whoever cannot take care of themselves without that law is both.
    For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
    'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
    Such is the rule of honour.

    My god that's a lot more than I expected. I Would love to see an LS series engine in my GU considering my VY is an LS1 and i miss driving it but not at that price. I payed less for my GU.
    Is great to see it in the bay though. Something about that front facing manifold.

    That's pretty reasonable. Do you have mods like a 3 inch exhaust that up the power a bit to get such good mileage towing?

    I get 12-13l/100km in my 3.0CRD empty.

    Whenever doing work like this to any vehicle - always add 20% onto what you will think it'll cost for things you didn't expect/things that didn't work right/things that need to be done extra.... it's amazing how many time's i've been told that an LS coversion (into any car) will only cost you $10k tops.... sure you could do that if absolutely everything went right and you got awesome best prices on everything. This is NEVER the case though.

    LS engines are great things though - once they're in - great bang for buck on upgrades! so much aftermarket parts available and theres so many people that have done the same, so it's easy to get advice on the best way to do things.

    Highly recommend an LS swap
