Holden L6 and V8 Engines Improved Performance Service Manual. Covers inline 6 cylinder 3.3-litre OHV petrol engine and V8 5-litre OHV petrol engine.

Supplement to be used in conjunction with Holden Commodore VB Series 1978 - 1980 Factory Service Manual M38145

Engines covered are the "improved performance", Australian-built "blue" motors (so called because of the factory paint colour). They are modified from earlier models to meet emission requirements.

The "blue" motors were introduced in 1980 in the VC/VH Commodore (1980 - 1984) and the WB range (1980 - 1985).

General information on Repair Manuals

Please note that workshop manuals are usually written for models sold in a specific country. Differences in specification can exist between models sold in different countries and items such as engines can vary. Please check that the manual will cover your model before purchase and if you are unsure please contact us first.

Factory repair manuals are the same manuals as those used by the dealers. As they are primarily intended for dealer use the manufacturers usually release a base repair manual when a new model is introduced (either a single manual, multi-volume set or separate volumes) and then release supplementary manuals as the model changes, for example a model facelift or introduction of a new engine. Supplements generally cover only changes to the model and are intended to be used in conjunction with the base repair manual(s). For full coverage you will need the base repair manual and all relevant supplements up to the date your model was manufactured.
