HQ383 - The Sweetest Sounding Holden V8 In Australia

I've heard alot of engines over the years from a variety of makes but this 383 Holden Stroker is one of the sweetest sounding V8's around.

Best Powerskids at Gazzanats 2011
Just get on it and see how long it'll smoke - that's what powerskids are all about. No brakes, just a heavy right foot and an arm full of steering lock, just watch out for those walls.





AGROVB - Supercharged & E85 Fueled 253 Holden V8
Yep, it's just 253 cubes (4.2-litres) under the bonnet of this Holden Commodore. The 253 is the V8 voted most likely to end up as a boat anchor to most performance enthusiasts, but Alan Shuttleworth decided to do something with his. Last year it made 280hp at the tyres naturally aspirated and this year he's back with a little B&M 162 blower on top and pumping just 7psi Boost it made 342hp at the tyres. So you could say this little engine is making around 460hp at the crank. Makes wonder if I should pull that 253 from under the bench and give it a go.





Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some interesting racing. We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near future.





HQ383 Flames up AGAIN at Springnats 2011
Burnouts are fun, but setting fire to your car? Not so much. Mick Sullivan has one of the sweetest sounding Holden V8's around but to keep the blower cool he runs a water/methanol injection system which sometimes gets things a little hot down the back end. Hopefully he'll get it all sorted before he totally torches the car.





SPOT ON - Chassis Twisting 2JZ-Powered VL Wagon
This is Australia's quickest VL Wagon but it's not powered by a Nissan 3-litre like most other VL's, this one is sporting Toyota power with a hopped-up 2JZ under the bonnet. It's no slouch either. On Saturday it ran a PB of 9.8 before breaking the gearbox, they dropped another box in it and turned up the wick with the car going 9.2 at 150mph by the end of the day. It's still got the factory BW diff in it too.





WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our time but never one that glowed so brightly.





ANARCY Supercharged Holden V8 Torana
This might be the quickest Holden V8 in Pro Street I think. Harry Joss runs a supercharged 355ci Holden stroker in this badass LX Torana hatch and with ET's in the low 8's we reckon it might be one of the quickest around.





Best burnout ever! Bandag Bullet
16 cylinders, 4 turbos, two Superchargers. The Bandag Bullet is a tyre frying machine. It can run the standing quarter in 12 seconds, and shoots flames from the ultra short Exhausts on demand.





Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure it was right to go. Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked good. So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.





WONAGO - World's Best Sounding V8
Being a Summernats virgin, Justen Brown made sure he got out there and checked out the burnout pad before the big qualifying show on Saturday. This was a practice run on Friday and the crowd loved hearing the 377ci small block Chev sing. I reckon it's one of the best sounding engines in the burnout scene right now. Pure music!





UCSMOKE Attempts the Corkscrew
I'm sure there's some cones in there somewhere in amongst that smoke, but Steven Loader doesn't seem to care. He obliterates the course with his supercharged Holden Premier before limping off with one blown back tyre.





Drift Camaro - How To Enjoy a Blown Big Block Chev!
Half burnout - half drift session, this awesome display shows how much fun a blown big block Camaro can be. Peter Gray is the pilot and he's not shy in throwing the black beast around the old Springnats skid pan.





BAT05L - Big, Black & Blown
A bit of modern muscle here with a 304ci Holden V8 sporting a thumping great 6/71 blower on a home made intake that the owner built himself. The bottom end is mostly stock with just valve springs to counter the Boost.





V8 Holden Commodore destroys engine on dyno
From Summernats 19, this blue VK Commodore throws a couple of rods through the sump on the Dyno. It was making over 600hp at the rear wheels.





KILLASLR - Blown SLR5000 Torana
Don't know much about this one, I think it was one of the cars to come over from Western Australia, but please correct me if I'm wrong. For our American/overseas viewers (Scotty's Garage is big in Brazil) this is an SLR5000 style Torana. They were big on Australian race circuits in the mid to late 70s and won a whole bunch of stuff. Compact bodyshell, 5-litre v8 and bolt on flares so you could fit huge rubber. It really doesn't get much better than that.
