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.

Holden Versus Ford at Lardner Park
The guys from Motorfest lined up a VR holden and a AU Falcon to see which would last the longest with their fanbelts cut and half the oil drained. I tipped that the Ford would outlast the Holden but I never imagined that it would go for 30mins. Obviously no-one wants to see the full video, but I've come up with a shorter version showing some of the highlights. The VR lastes 2mins 47secs, while the AU Falcon went for 30min until they got bored aand took the stick off the accelerator where it stalled. It's rumoured that someone actually strated the AU up again later in the night.





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.





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.





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.





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.





T4TUFF - Summernats 25 Burnout Masters Second Place
After qualifying for the top five last year Matty Power was looking strong for a big finish at summernats 24, but an engine fire cut things short and he came fifth. This year there were no fires, but there was plenty of smoke as he destroyed several pairs of tyres to finish second overall. Killer stuff.





GEMSKID Supercharged Holden Gemini
More girl power with Juzzy Mott frying some tyres in her supercharged 383 Chevy powered Gemini.





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.





QIK400 Holden at Summernats 25
We've decided to make it All Holden Day here at Scotty's Garage with another great smokeshow. I'm pretty sure this one isn't packing a late model GM motor though. Sounds like there's 400 cubes of Chevy small block in there.
