2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes

Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen. Check out how much Exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away.

Too Much Horsepower For The Dyno
At the recent Totally Exhausted Dyno Day they tried to Dyno test Billey Seton's SILLY HQ sedan. But massive traction issues meant they weren't getting the numbers the car should have been getting. the engine has been Dynoed at 1300hp but the best they could get was just over 450rwhp before it erupted in wheelspin again. Then after it was all over they took it out the back for some donut action and snapped some wheel studs off.

AGROVB Forgets to Tighten Something
Alan Shuttleworth was lucky to spot this fuel leak on his supercharged Commodore. If it had caught fire it would have been a disaster.

2000hp Ford Cortina
Joe Gauci has been the king of the Modified Street Blown class (mini-tubbed, small tyre class) for the last couple years with his wicked Cortina. It's got a twin turbo 370ci Windsor under the bonnet and it runs 7.1 at over 200mph. But close the bonnet it just looks like a tough streeter. What an awesome machine!

Jake Edwards, turbocharged Torana
Jake's single turbo Torana is legendary in Australia. His ability to crank out big horsepower numbers from relatively simple combinations defies belief. It's an awesome sounding car as well. Not sure of the specs when this video was shot because he's had several motors, but it's a Holden V8 between 308 and 393ci with a large Holset single turbo.
