2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes
Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen. Check out how much Exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away.
Summernats 23 - Day 2 -Thursday
Summernats was strangely quiet today for a Thursday, but there's a whole bunch of killer cars around and more blowers than you can imagine. here's just a small portion of some of the cars going through scrutineering and some cruising. sorry, I didn't get to the judging hall today. Better update tomorrow.
SUBTLE Wins Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals
It may be SUBTLE by name but Jeremy Callaghan's twin turbo Torana is anything but subtle. Even though it's not the quickest car in the class the Torana swept all before it during the Chicago Shootout in Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals and then defeeated the Perko Torana in the finals. A solid win from a very cool looking car
Perry Bullivant's Twin Turbo Torana
At Winton last year we saw Perry Bullivant decimate the competition in the Powerskid category. But back then he was running 434 cubes and a Vortech blower. Now he's packing something really special and although it was brand new and just running 10psi Boost, Perry's new 406ci twin turbo combination had everyone talking. It looks great and sounds awesome and it makes some power as well and with 650rwhp it has to be making around 850hp at the crank. Imagine what it's going to do when he pumps 20psi Boost into it?
