JETV6 Holden Commodore
Jim's turbocharged V6 Commodore proves
you don't need an LS1 to go fast. The car has run well into the 9s
previously but this time out Jim raced the car in full street trim on
98-octane. Powered by a 4.2L stroker engine, Boost comes from a Garrett turbo and Delco EFI.
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.

Insidious ~ Monster vs Human
4000hp pair of TWIN TURBO Lambos!
This pair of OB Prestige Auto / Heffner Performance Lambos quickly caught
our eye at TEXAS INVITATIONAL, not only are they "loud" looking, but they
are LOUD and they sure do pack a punch! With twin 76mm turbos and a very unique Intercooler piping setup by Heffnew
Performance, these cars had no problem making BIG POWER. A lot of these
passes during the event were all about trying to figure out how to put the
power down, but they definitely put on a good show!
Side note - The blue Lambo broke the MPH record at the Shift S3ctor race in
California weeks later!
