1987 Holden Commodore VL Nissan RB30E from Australia and New Zealand
A real car!
Crankangle sensor, replaced.
Air flow meter, replaced.
Coolant temp sensor, replaced.
Rust around the front and back windscreens.
I think the 3 litre aspirated motor goes hard with a few modifications such as a different head or porting/polishing the original. Big exhaust, rampod etc. You don't always need a turbo for power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought my VL 88 Executive a couple of months ago, it has 183000 on it, pretty good for a car that is 13 years old.
Crank angle replaced and it's still going hard.
I love it, it has no traction in the wet though.
I think keeping it stock is good enough for me. It had one previous owner, an old bloke who serviced it every 6 months to the day.

I have a 1988 VL, what are the brakes like on these vehicles as mine has a very low pedal and the stopping is not the best. Is this due to the front disc and the rear drum setup, how can you improve on this?

If your boot is still leaking water, it could be due to the water running down the boot and on top of the lights, where it then enters the light itself, fills the light and overflows into the boot. Fix it by using silicone on the holes or drill small holes in the bottom of the light. Worked for me.
