Corowa Autofest 2010 - 1000hp Torana splits balancer on the dyno

This Torana is a pretty mean bit of gear, with a Vortech YSi hanging off the side of a 434cube small block chev. It was looking promising to spin up some huge numbers on the Dyno when the balancer split. Although there was some concern the crank might have snapped the snout off, it was later confirmed that it was just the balancer that broke.

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.





Twin Turbo LS1-Powered HK Monaro on Dyno
Rodney Ritchie used to run a serious procharger blow-through set-up on his HG Monaro but he's ripped that out and fitted a 406ci LS1 with twin T04Z turbos. It doesn't run alot of Boost but it sure makes enough power. It won the Dyno at Winton's Performance Car Mania with 731rwhp. Rodney now plans to finish things off with an Intercooler and pump up the Boost for even more power, and possibly have a crack at Modified Street Blown in the APSA series.





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.





R.I.P. INOCNT Torana
Simon Kryger's INOCNT Torana has been a solid Pro Street performer at Sydney Dragway and other tracks for many years. Simon sold the car just after this last footage was shot and two weeks later the car was destroyed in a traffic accident when it was stuck from behind at high speed by another vehicle. Unfortunately the iconic Torana was destroyed, but the driver wasn't seriously injurred. Rest in Peace INOCNT.

CAL400 goes 203mph at Supernats 2005
Cal goes 203mph in his supercharged torana.





Jake Edwards Torana - Summernats 21
On the Dyno at Summernats 21. Jakes Edwards is probably Australia's foremost authority on blow through carby set-ups. Here's his own personal car running over 1000hp at the tyres with a single carb and no Intercooler although it does run on mehtanol. The engine is a 393cube Holden V8 and it runs a single Holset turbo.





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





Corowa Autofest - Outlaw class final
I'm not sure what the rules were for the outlaw class but it was Mick Brody again with his 555cube Torana versus Chris with his Supercharged HQ. Unfortunately Chris was fairly outgunned with the big block Torana taking a relatively easy win.





Corowa Autofest - V8 Drag Final
In the V8 Finals at Autofest it was Mick brody up against Matt Filipenko, both cars are LJ Torana's but Brody's car had the cubic inch advantage with 440 cubes. Matt attempted to close the gap with a 150hp shot of Nitrous on his 383. It was a close run but the timers didn't work and Brody took the win by crossing the line first.





Car's differential explodes on the startline
This supercharged Torana blows its diff in spectacular fashion during Supernats at WSID in Sydney Australia.





Summernats 23 - EASTY
How's this for a tyre shredding burnout? Glenn Eastwood leans on his Torana so hard that the tyres want to leave along with the coolant.





Corowa Autofest - Six Cylinder drag final
High tech versus old school in the final of the six cylinder class at Corowa. We talk briefly to both owners before they head to the startline. With the EL XR6 Falcon boasting almost double the horsepower of the Torana, it should have been no contest but the result was closer than anyone could imagine.





1000hp+ Twin Turbo Torana
We've talked to Perry Bullivant in the past with his Torana sedan. First it had a Vortech Supercharger that made plenty of power but was somewhat fragile, then he progressed to a 434ci twin turbo set-up, now he's gone to 408 cube but still with twin turbos and with it strapped down hard it ran back-to-back 1000hp runs at Performance Car Mania. With the old combo the car has run 8.1 on the quarter, should be interesting to see what it runs now.





Corowa Autofest 2010 - SKIDIT Torana on the dyno
Justin Robinson's Torana smoked the tyres all weekend at Corowa, but he also threw it on the Dyno to see what it was making at the tyres. As you can see, it's got plenty of grunt.





MRCUBE - 8sec Injected torana
I don't know the details on this Torana but it's an awesome bit of gear with some wheels up 8sec action and no blowers or turbos to be seen.
