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.
FAST V8 turbo Holden Commodore street car
Luke Foley's wild Holden VH Commodore street car hits the track with a new
engine setup in the way of a GM 408ci LS2 V8 complete with a mid frame turbonetics 88mm turbocharger. The ran into the nines on Luke's
first pass and considering it was his first time testing the new
combination we're sure it will run quicker yet.

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.

NZV8 TV S3 Episode 5 - Powercruise, Holden HQ Kingswood, GP Hydroplaning - Part 1
On this week's show, we get down to the huge Powercruise event held
recently at the Taupo Motorsport Park. We have full coverage of the
Powerskids and all the Off Street Racing. It was an awesome event and it's
no suprise that's where we found this week's feature car -- a supercharged
Holden HQ Kingswood that had no issue turning rubber into smoke. After all
the excitement of Powercruise we needed to relax by the water so we caught
up with Australasian GP Hydroplaning champion Graeme Weller as he attempts
to set the World GP Hydroplane Speed Record.
