VS V6 Commodore with Raptor ProStreet Intercooled stage 3 system. Running
13psi in the manifold this is a test unit to gauge long term effects on the
system. The power and torque have obviously increased and a retune is now
needed. The extra stability of the air system has shown remarkable
improvements in fuel economy, the large 32mm BOVs are responsible for this.
The 4" intake assists with flow into the compressor as the SC is delivering
enough air for around 350hp at the wheels with a good tune

Killing a Ecotec V6 on limiter Narrogin revheads 2009
killing a ecotec that was in good condition with 200,000km on it, it was on
the limiter for 5min 30sec before it gave way. Once the motor cooled down
it still started but sounded a little noisy and it now runs on 5 cylinders.
Have to wait till next year revheads to try and kill it again on limiter.
VS Commodore 4.2L Twin Turbo
first time i've had it home with the 4.2L in. tuning is not finished but
the idle is certainly alot meaner than before.
sounds better with speakers that have some bass as it sounds really whiney
and tractor-like otherwise.
