to a Garrett T51R turbocharger, the

Not a car you see in the US that often, John Faraone's 4200lbs 572ci Twin
88mm turbo powered 1972 Valiant Charger
layed down some serious passes on Drag Week, especially the last day when
he overcame some tuning issues and broke into the 7's! We love seeing
people come from overseas to enjoy this insane event, especially when they
come from the opposite side of the world!

Shane O'Sullivan VC Valiant V8 Chrysler 408 Stroker 10.25 PB Perth Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011
It was great to see Westside Drag Racing Association Club President Shane
O'Sullivan out running a new personal best time of 10.25 at the Perth
Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011, which was later followed by another 10.23
The Club Prez has been away working hard on offshore oil rigs, and it was
good to see him back at the track burning out and doing what he
loves...high speed drag racing!!
Shane's 408 cubed retro Valiant is Mopar powered, and has had EFi fitted.
Shane's PB also came about with the help from a set of custom Exhaust pipes manufactured by Dragtech
Fabrication (Rick Johns) which were fitted just prior to his new best time.
Shane reports that the time may not stand for too long however, with a new
intake manifold on the way.
Well done to all the team and people who have helped out.

The Charger has now been sold but thanks for the favorable comments.
Just for clarification in response to some comments received we are fully
aware this was not a Hemi motor and never claimed it to be.As mentioned in
the video it is the decals only that follow in the style of the RT-which of
course had the Hemi motor!
