sounds better with speakers that have some bass as it sounds really whiney
and tractor-like otherwise.

Just testing out the new HD camera, figured I might as well do a new video
showing what the car is like now. Still very much a work in progress, shown
by mismatched leads and cable ties.
But for those who are interested, the simple specs are:
Factory Unopened L27 Buick V6 Engine
(decent) Chinese T70 0.70 front 0.84 rear (Running 10psi atm)
DSR 38mm Wastegate with 7.4psi spring
Tial "styled" 50mm Blow off valve

Re-tuned delco ecu for all mods
Full 3" Intercooler piping

Full custom made 3" Exhaust with 2
Using factory drivers manifold with custom crossover pipe merges into
custom passengers manifold then into the turbo
Shift kitted / Corvette servo fitted 4l60E transmission with large trans
Car has done upwards of 2500km since this most recent setup and has been
handling it quite well, only problems so far have been the air filter, and
leads melting but apart from that, it's been a real pleasure. Next on the
list is some form of locked diff, and a few more psi in the intake!

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.
Holden Commodore VR V6 With SC14 Startup, idle and small revs
Due to popular demand, here's a short video of the car as it is now.
Currently running 2.5psi on the stock pulley, slowly building up funds for
all the necessary bits to run 10-12psi within the next 3 months.
The Supercharger is currently setup with
a electric clutch, the switch on my dash engages it so the pulley doesn't
free spin on the belt, and starts cranking the charger.
**Since this video, the setup was changed to a 10psi intercooled setup.
Then eventually replaced with a T70 turbo. Progress thread can be found here:
