1989 Holden Commodore VN 3.8 E.F.I from Australia and New Zealand
You can drive it like you stole it
Fuel and temp gauges work on and off.
Interior is poorly assembled.
Over heats really bad, so got an electric water pump put in and it is as cool as a cucumber.
Windscreen wiper blade holders rust bad and will result in a scratched windscreen.
Rusts around the rubbers on the back windscreen, but does only do this with age.
Brake lights short out heaps due to bad wiring and poor original globes.
When the power steering goes the whole kit and caboodle will have to be replaced sooner or later.
Door rubbers come off really easily so glue them back on the second they start to come off.
The engine is so good, I have never had a problem with it.
It has decent power, but all you got to do to make it quicker is bolt on an S.T.A supercharger which requires no extra engine work and you automatically have 50-75% more power which I think is very NICE.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Do you not have to change the computer or injectors to supply more fuel?

You can drive any car like you stole it.
If it's a good supercharger kit, you'll need different engine management, different fuel pump, head gasket, low compression pistons. If you don't need any of that I seriously have to question the reliability of an engine in the long run under such conditions.

If you drive it like you stole it, then no wonder it's problematic.
