LS1 turbo V8 powered VL BT-1

Taking a different approach by dropping a turbocharged stock 346ci LS1 engine into a lighter weight VL Commodore is a smart move. With just 8psi Boost on board and combating a flaring transmission on the night this Holden shows you can't beat cubic inches.

First 9-second LPG pass - Tunnel Vision (2006)
(Please note this video is from August 2006) Jason Ghiller's Tunnel Vision built XE ESP has become the first car in Australia to run a 9-second pass on LPG pump fuel. The turbo 4.0-litre ran a first up pass of 10.18 before going 10.01/133 and then 9.97/132 (1.52 60ft, 110.81mph mid track). The XE was also the first LP Gas powered vehicle to run a 10-second pass just a few years ago. Even more impressive is the fact the car was driven to the track and home again.
