Actuallly, This is far from stock. We didnt receive anything special with the Series 1. They were all N\A. Ours is quite modified.

We've had our Intake manifold chopped and a plate welded on to suit the Eaton M90, with just enough room for the fuel rails etc. to fit when the boonet has been cut and a large bonnet scoop fitted. I guess the other option is to fit a bigger bonnet scoop? but oh wells, we'll see.

I'll post up pics if someone is willing to host them for me?

thanks
stew

i beileve that www.intense-racing.com has a kit available to adapt a hybrid MP 112
Is it definetley a Hybrid. As our car is RWD, the current setup shows us that we can not go any further back due to firewall clearances, So any bigger casings are simply not possible.

Thanks again,

ZZP did have a product that put 112 rotors in the M90, but I don't know if they do that anymore.

You might wanna look in to a Gen 5 M90.

Yeh we got the L36 and L67 ... Known as the Ecotec to us. High up Models such as the Calais received the L67 as a cheaper option than the High Output 5.7L GenIII LS1. It came in the sports models too Such a the "* Pack" and in one model it actually came as an option with the "SS Pack" But Holden NEVER put a manual behind it (thats our customisation). Not even when the T56 came, claiming the Gearbox couldn't handle the torque.

Rumour is though that if they were to manualise the L67 there would be no point to buy a V8 because even in Auto form they stomp the V8s . Not sure about the new LS2 though, that thing is a weapon as I've heard, Low-down Torque. And the new Alloytec motor, its an incredible little piece of work.

But anyways heres the pics ...
