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.

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.





Jake Edwards, turbocharged Torana
Jake's single turbo Torana is legendary in Australia. His ability to crank out big horsepower numbers from relatively simple combinations defies belief. It's an awesome sounding car as well. Not sure of the specs when this video was shot because he's had several motors, but it's a Holden V8 between 308 and 393ci with a large Holset single turbo.

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





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.





Corowa Autofest - RUSH supercharged Statesman on the dyno
Fresh from a full rebuild before Summernats this supercharged ls1 powered Holden Statesman produces around 485hp to the rear wheels. It also smokes the tyres later during the burnout comp but that's another video.

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?





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.





Crazy Camaro Burnout
I filmed this Camaro at Melbourne's Easternats a few years back. One of the most awesome burnouts I've ever seen. Turn the volume up for this one. And don't forget to rate it.





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.
