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 turbo V8 Mitsubishi Sigma
After a three year build up, Phil made the trip over from Adelaide to Heathcote Raceway to debut his wicked sounding Mitsubishi Sigma for the first time last weekend. Powered by a standard stroke 346ci LS1 engnie, a Garrett GT42 turbo helped the car rocket to a best pass of 9.8 at 140mph for the day.

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.
