if he has a SI EV6 block its still the SI, the EV6 casting blocks are the L27..i've got the EV6 on a 93 bonneville sse 3800 block in my garage (the one my Hybrid work is with)...
i doubt the harness/intake are a big issue but PCM are a different matter...
many of the guys down under also swap in newer 96+ harness'* and computers to gain programability of the PCM others have aftermarket PCM'* burned by companies down there, the problem is they really dont HAVE a Bonneville "Equivalent" their cars were not clear cut copes of our vehicles...they used many of the same systems but i bet alot of the rest is different...
so have any of ya been lurking on the holden boards as i have?
some of em are even on FullThrottleV6.com some good info to be had but just remember dont take anything at face vallue till you get a confirmation...Bickham, Dogsballs, Locksmiff are some of the more interesting posts (you should see their cars...
)and they are on streetcommodores.com
i remember that there was a thread on SI cranks and rods and pistons and it seems that they recieved the same upgrades through the line of 3800 evolution (ie thinner rings etc) and except for the formula Holden engines all had the same rods and cranks as available in the US...the Holden formula engines however got forged cranks
forged rods and forged pistons...you hear reference to these engines in one of my previous links
