Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
JETV6 Holden Commodore
Jim's turbocharged V6 Commodore proves
you don't need an LS1 to go fast. The car has run well into the 9s
previously but this time out Jim raced the car in full street trim on
98-octane. Powered by a 4.2L stroker engine, Boost comes from a Garrett turbo and Delco EFI.

50psi boost 1200+hp Nissan RB30 - Ethanol E98
Nissan RB30 SOHC 3L engine built and tuned by JPC making over 1200hp on
Ethanol fuel. The engine still retains a factory block and crank.
Improvements come from a custom JPC turbocharger, manifolding, roller rockers and cam
gear. Fuel is fed via ID2000cc injectors and an Autronic computer system.
This engine has previously run 8.79 at 160.25mph (with less power) in a
full weight (3250lb) Holden VL commodore through stock suspension,
Powerglide transmission, 9in rear end and 28x9in slicks.

Killing a Ecotec V6 on limiter Narrogin revheads 2009
killing a ecotec that was in good condition with 200,000km on it, it was on
the limiter for 5min 30sec before it gave way. Once the motor cooled down
it still started but sounded a little noisy and it now runs on 5 cylinders.
Have to wait till next year revheads to try and kill it again on limiter.
VS V6 Commodore with Raptor ProStreet Intercooled stage 3 system. Running
13psi in the manifold this is a test unit to gauge long term effects on the
system. The power and torque have obviously increased and a retune is now
needed. The extra stability of the air system has shown remarkable
improvements in fuel economy, the large 32mm BOVs are responsible for this.
The 4" intake assists with flow into the compressor as the SC is delivering
enough air for around 350hp at the wheels with a good tune
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
