Hmmm, can I be persuaded to remove the cams before it gets turned to baked bean tins....  ....its done 232k though.


Which shows these engines can go on. They like regular oil servicing, but GM oil is cheap.  Its the rust that kills 'em

If you did want to let the cams go separately I'd be interested for sure. Thanks for the tip - I'll start a proper thread for future enquiries  :y

An MV6 with LPG sounds appealing on the face of it! I'm guessing there's more to it than that  ;D
Its metalwork is like swiss cheese ;D

 ;D

I've never welded in my life!

After reading around the site a bit, I'm feeling like I would like a 2.5 CDX manual with a set of 3.0 cams in it. I'll get searching for a set of cams I guess!


Why? Fit the whole 3.0l

Hmm, good point. I don't think I've got the skill for a full engine swap really. Cams though I can manage
Bah... It's fewer bolts and the wiring and plumbing are identical ::)

Hello and welcome.

I also have a set of good G cams, if anyone else is looking.

May have a 2.5TD manual Est. for sale in a few months. Starting to look a bit rough around the edges but still a good looking car with loads of life left in her.

It's a like-for-like replacement. It's likely to take about the same time as swapping four cams, and is easier work. The results are better too.
If you're interested, I've a complete 3.0l engine, ecu and key, and manual gearbox that I want 250 for.
