Turbo Valiant Wagon Dyno

Remember the Sleeper Wagon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6wXw8t9oeU ? It was a Aussie Valiant wagon (A-body Mopar like the Dodge Dart) that I bought for $250 and fitted a borrowed 440 big block to it. Year's later I repainted the car Hemi Orange and fitted a turbocharged 245 hemi six to it and even though it made only 40hp less than the big block it was nowhere near as much fun. Here's the Dyno tuning session from about four years ago. These days the wagon just runs a naturally aspirated 245 hemi six, but I'm thinking of doing some more to it soon.

Slant Sixes go wild
A video of two turbocharged slant sixes having some fun at the dragstrip.





Supercharged 426 Hemi SRT-8 Dyno
Daniel Buchanan's 300C SRT-8 is a beast. It makes so much power that they had to ditch the factoy auto and fit a turbo 400 to the car. The engine is a 6.1-litre Hemi stroked out to 7-litre or 426 cubes in the old money. Which meaks it a 426 Hemi (okay so it's not a real 66-71 style 426 Hemi, but it sounds cool anyway). On top sits a 3.4-litre whipple Supercharger from Yella Terra and all the work was done by horsepower Factory in Melbourne. For a street car running pump 98-octane fuel it certainly makes some power.





TUF253 Torana Smokes It Up
Yep, it's powered by a 253 with a Supercharger from a UD truck for a bit of fun. Shannon loves a bit of burnout action and he's a regular viewer/commentor here on Scotty's Garage so be nice. :)





Wicked Fast 2JZ-powered BMW M3 - Gas Motorsports
We love quick cars and don't really care what they're powered by, so we reckon this Toyota 2JZ powered BMW M3 is pretty awesome. Check out the second pass where it runs in the sevens after stepping off the gas well before the finish line. This car is going to be a weapon once they get it sorted!





Wagon Westoration - Part 1
With Chryslers on the Murray - Australia's Biggest Mopar Show - just around the corner I thought I'd get the old wagon out of the shed and get it ready for rego. Should be a bit of fun and hopefully it'll be a nice cruiser for my wife and kids to enjoy.





Sleeper Wagon
This was a car I built up with some friends for fun. It's a 1970 VG Valiant station wagon (it's an A-body Mopar, like a Dodge dart...but a wagon)and we yanked the stock 4-litre six and bolted in a 440ci motor. The car was awesome, we would abolutely hose WRX's on the street and no-one expected anything from an old white station wagon. This video is quite old and it was the first video I ever edited. It comes from when we raced the wagon at an 1/8th mile meeting at Sydney's Oran Park. I came runner up at the meeting and I decided to show enough of each run to show how we won. Most of the time it looks like I'm racing myself until the camera pans. In the final we raced a drag pick-up and stayed with it for most of the run which shows how capable the wagon was. I still have the wagon, it now runs a turbocharged 4-litre, I'll post up some videos as they become available. Enjoy.





Wagon Westoration - Part 3
With the cast iron Exhaust manifold too warped to use I had to go back to the custom extractors, but the Exhaust system hit against the floor in a couple spots. We take the wagon down to Totally Exhausted in Wodonga and get the guys to tweak the Exhaust. It not only looks good but sounds awesome too.





Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote. Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.





TOYTON - Unblown to Blown in Five Minutes
Okay, we sped the footage up a little but in all honesty Rob Godfrey went from an unblown big block to an 8/71 combo in less than 20 minutes. For those that don't know the car it is one of Australia's top Street Machines, winning both Street Machine of the year and Summernats Grand Champion. with the only naturally aspirated 632ci combo it made 1050rwhp and run eights on the quarter. The new blown 502ci combo is more cruisable, but makes less power. Looks bloody awesome though. The girls appeared as soon as Rob fired the car up. Very cool.





Crazy 1200hp Station Wagon
We see some pretty insane stuff from time to time but this totally out there HQ Holden Station Wagon ranks right up there. It's got a blown and injected big block Chev up front and it made 977hp AT THE TYRES on the Summernats Dyno. So we're not exaggerating with that 1200hp claim. Gotta love those crazy Queenslanders.





Australia's Quickest Nitrous Car - Wilson/Kryger Camaro
Edit: It's been pointed out there might be a couple of quicker Nitrous cars in Australia but regardless this car is pretty impressive so I'll let the title stand. I'm pretty sure this is Australia's quickest Nitrous car, although if I'm wrong someone will let me know. With a monster motor and massive gas kit the car runs some seriously quick times considering it's only on 10.5 rubber. It's still early days for the black Camaro, owned by Johnny Wilson and Simon Kryger, who knows how fast they'll get it going?





200SX Dyno at Summernats
For something a bit, here's a 200sx Nissan on the Dyno at Summernats.





Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny 10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.





SKDVAL Mopar with Holden Power
Not sure why they chose to drop a blown Holden in the front of this AP-5 Valiant, but they did...





VC Valiant Burnout at Summernats 23
One for the Mopar fans. There's wasn't much chrysler action happening on the burnout pad at Summernats 23 but this tunnel rammed VC sedan put it out there for the fans. Ross Harvison was the driver and he's running a 318 stroked out to 350 cubes.
