LSX 454ci Holden Commodore

Luke's VT Commodore is a little different from most. Instant performance has been achieved by swapping the factory 5.7L LS1 in favour of a stock GM Racing 454ci LSX V8 crate engine from the states backed by a Hasty Autos built Powerglide transmission. The car has come alive as a genuine 10-second street car. Best time to date is a 10.60 at 130mph.

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.
