V8 sounds immense, but not a lot of head room if you want to mod to get more power.

The V6 is very mod friendly. Remap and pulley can add a lot of horses for not a lot of money.

Also newer so more reliable...?

Depends what camp you're in I guess. If you think there is no replacement for displacement, then it has to be the V8!

Both are rather good choices

Snap, willpop! That's at the entrance to Centennial Park adjacent to the Superintendent's Residence. WAY too many sets of lights around there.

Bang on Julian - I have the RMS app and it alerted me of the fine while on holidays - I can't even recall trying to beat it, I travel that route a lot and was well aware of it, live and learn I guess.
