TUFGM8 Calais Holden 402ci
David's exceptionally neat VL Calais is powered by a Holden 402ci V8 engine
and aided by a small shot of Nitrous.
This was only the second time out with the car so the long term plan is to
up the gas to run deep into the 9s.
ONBOOST Holden LS2 V8 turbo Ute
Brendan's VS Commodore Ute runs easy tens thanks to a GM LS2 6L V8 engine
conversion. Boosted by a Master
Power T70 turbo, power is fed through a
T700 transmission to 26x8.5in slicks. The car has also gone 10.57 on 235 ET
Lamborghini Jalpa with LS1 V8 power
A very rare sight on the road, Nick's Lambo Jalpa is a little different
from most in that the factory 3.5L V8 has been put aside in favour of a
stock standard GM 346ci LS1 engine. Mated to a Toyota MR2 trans-axle
gearbox, the best time for the night was 11.8 at 124mph.
Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO 0-60 Test
Just throwing up one last video before another two week hiatus.
This one definitely took the 0-60 record. The long awaited turbo LS2 GTO is here...and holy hell does it
deliver. Thanks to a whole lot of help from Carl H at BlackBox Tuning.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the
United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia
from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the
most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at
a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on
performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its
attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the
"Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized
Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8.
The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato"
after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by
becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package
had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales
of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package
included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB
four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7
blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with
Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider
wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The
original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a
standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac
pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it
eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's
saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power
increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air
applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds
and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were
down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974
Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as
the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the
compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford
Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the
four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a
quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but
1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept
was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the
Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp
LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a
choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was
sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet
Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling
which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance
(even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's
failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models
were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2
engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing
quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once
again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.

Walkinshaw enhanced E3 HSV LPI Clubsport with 3inch bimodal exhaust launch & drive by-HD
Please note video footage is best viewed in 720p/1080p HD and was taken
during the new year holiday break on a quiet outer suburban road to ensure
the safety of others. The launch was performed on lpg and comp mode was
selected to prevent wheel spin. Drive by shows how quite the Exhaust can be when cruising and when you open
it up past 3800rpm mark the sound that it makes when the vacuum operated
valves open up with the bimodal system.
HSV GTS twin turbo - GM Motorsport
Brad's HSV GTS still retains a stock internal 6.2L V8 LS engine and 6-speed
auto trans but that hasn't hindered performance. Boosted by an ASE twin turbo kit and tuned by GM Motorsport, the VE ran a
best pass of 10.55 at 136mph for the day.
