Cam only LS1 Commodore V8
Blair's Holden VY Commodore SS street car runs well with only a camshaft
engine upgrade. The combination uses E85 ethanol fuel, stall converter and
diff gears to run some impressive numbers. Tuned by A.P.S.

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.

727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in
Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive
big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the
fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a
Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter
of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and
Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire
fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie,
from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy
petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan
aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less
punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
