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.

Heathcote Park Raceway, Australia - May 18th 2014
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
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.

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
