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.

CHE VT Commodore LS1 Twin Turbo - First pass
Dave and Dale's new VT Commodore drag car hits the track. After only six
weeks in the build it ran four passes ranging between 9.6 and 9.9. The
first run was on 14psi Boost, then
after a few changes between passes, it ran a 1.48 60-foot on 11psi Boost. The car doesn't run any NOS, still
runs a factory alloy block, stock crank and isn't what you'd call a big
dollar build. The rear tyres are 28x9s. For more info head to
