WILD 1000+hp Nitrous LSX - TUFSS3
With the popularity of supercharged and turbocharged LS engines, it’s refreshing to see Nitrous applications are still alive and well. A great example of this is Tim Holmyard’s VX Commodore. We’ve featured the car before but this was the first time we’d seen the car his a chassis Dyno. Having previously laid down an 8.55 quarter mile, the Commodore is one of the quickest IRS suspension equipped cars in Australia. Looking to trap over 170mph Tim has recently pieced together a new 444 cubic inch LSX engine. Improvements include a Dart block, Dailey Engineering dry sump oil system and custom CNC ported CID LS7 cylinder heads by Higgins Race Heads. CID are the only Australian manufactured LS heads with a range of ports suited to naturally aspirated and Boosted applications for L98, LS3 and LS7 engines. All heads come CNC ported and feature CNC valve seats. Tim has also fitted the new to the market CID LS7 inlet manifold alongside a larger Wilson throttle body. The factory GM computer is still retained works well with the Direct port 300hp progressive Nitrous system. On Sam’s Performance’s engine Dyno the LSX recently made 870hp naturally aspirated so lets so how it does at Westernlink Automotive’s chassis Dyno.

8s on IRS - Nitrous LSX Commodore V8 - TUFSS3
It's been a long time since we've seen Tim Holmyard's Nitrous assisted Commodore run hard at the track. The car has undergone a complete new engine setup. Power now comes from an LSX V8 complete Higgins CNC heads and a Wilson Direct port Nitrous system. The car ran close to it's personal best pass on a moderate Nitrous shot and soft launch so it looks like there is plenty more left in this setup. http://www.fullBoost.com.au Get your track gear! http://shop.fullBoost.com.au Follow us on social media @ Google+ https://plus.google.com/+fullBoost Facebook http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau Twitter https://twitter.com/fullBoostcomau Instagram http://instagram.com/fullBoostcomau Calder Park, Australia - October 10th 2014.





LSX Commodore ~ 8.59 @ 169mph on IRS
After breaking numerous stock drive-shaft / axles, Chris the owner of this vicious VX Holden has fitted a set of aftermarket axles with immediate results. The car ran a string of 8-second passes at the King of the Street event at Heathcote. The Commodore features a 7L LSX V8 engine built by Flowcraft and Boosted by a Precision turbocharger on E85 fuel. The factory IRS suspension is still in place transmitting well over 900hp to 275mm radial tyres. 2001 Holden VX SS Commodore [ LSXGMH ] GM LSX V8 7L / 427ci engine built by Flowcraft Race Engines Forged bottom end, Brodix heads, Solid roller camshaft Precision PT8891 turbocharger @ 19.7psi Custom Exhaust manifolds, 4in dump into twin 3in system GM computer, E85 pump fuel Powerglide trans by HASTY Auto Trans, MT X275 radial tyres Standard Holden IRS rear end with full spool centre, 1400hp axles Dyno tuned by: Allsparks Performance [ 704kW / 944hp @ wheels ] Thanks to: My Dad Mark for all of his help, Eugine @ Flowcraft Race Engines, Frank @ Allsparks Performance, Luke @ Hasty Auto Trans Dyno video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGR0pPHccto http://www.fullBoost.com.au Get your track gear! http://shop.fullBoost.com.au Follow us on social media @ Google+ https://plus.google.com/+fullBoost Facebook http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau Twitter https://twitter.com/fullBoostcomau Instagram http://instagram.com/fullBoostcomau Tunnel Vision King of the Street #3 Heathcote Park Raceway, Australia ~ September 12th 2015





10-second LS1 Street Commodore built in 2 weeks
Mark Sass has transformed this once V6 nugget VX Holden Commodore into a tough 10-second street car in a mere two weeks. The 3.8L V6 was ditched in favour of a 346ci LS1 engine, with the only internal change being a Nitrous spec camshaft. Other modifications include a 200hp Nitrous system, FAST intake manifold, Holden 3.7:1 LSD rear end (still retains factory IRS) and a turbo400 3spd transmission. Mark drove the car to Calder Park on skinny MT 235 Drag Radials, ran a solid 10.3-second pass and drove home, the car's best MPH was 133mph. http://www.sassauto.com.au/ http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau http://www.fullBoost.com.au
