    Engine & Gearbox
    Hey guys, I have only ever owned Diesel vans and am considering getting a VR6 petrol and converting to LPG. This being the case how many miles can you expect to get out of one of these engines? How are they for performance and mpg before and after the conversion to LPG? Thanks for your advice...

    Engine & Gearbox
    has anyone turbo'd a vr6 velle? They seem easy enuf 2 do as golf boys do it all the time! Will a turbo fit in a velle bay? Also, what kinda 1/4 mile would a stripped velle with 300bhp do? I reckon u could build one all up for £5kish on a tatty van! Ideas/thoughts please!
