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.
LS1 Power - Turbo VN Commodore
Jason's Holden VN Commodore LS1PWR hits the drag strip for the first time
in two years. The car had run into the 9s using a stock internal 346ci
engine but is now powered by a 408ci stroker V8. The turbocharged VN blazes the tyres before netting a
9.45 at 152mph pass.
Barra turbo conversion ~ PSIPOP Falcon
Ford Falcon ED complete with late model Barra DOHC 4.0L conversion makes
for loads of potential. Kristian's car is good for 150mph on lowish Boost. Along with forged internals, Garrett
turbo, Haltech E85 fuel system and 275
radial tyres the car snuck into the nines at the Ford Forum Nationals.

Tough VN SS street car - 427 Holden power
Phil's VN Commodore SS is powered by a 427ci twin throttle Holden V8 engine
featuring a C.O.M.E Racing alloy block built by Advanced Engine Performance
making 675hp on 98 unleaded pump fuel. The car hooks up well through 255
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.

727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in
Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive
big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the
fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a
Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter
of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and
Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire
fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie,
from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy
petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan
aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less
punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Sleeper Sunday:Corvette Killer Turbo LSx Work Truck - Holley LS Fest 2014 Edition
So every time we have a Sleeper Sunday we always have that one guy who
doesn't exactly agree on what a sleeper is. We caught up with this work
truck at Holley LS Fest 2014 and we think it's the textbook definition of a
sleeper. Do you agree?

"Stella" The Turbo Turd!-Ford Turbo Coupe Thunderbird Review!
For this shoot and run quick review, I had the chance to drive one of the
most overlooked cars of the past-the Ford turbo Coupe. The car rocks the same engine as the
cult classic SVO Fox body with the 2.3 liter 4 banger turbocharged engine. It's a whole lot of fun while
looking like grandma doing it! Thanks for watching and stay awesome. Social
