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.

BLOKY - NASCAR-Powered Valiant Burnout
Check out Daniel Blok's VG Valiant. He's found himself a 358ci Dodge NASCAR engine complete with P7 heads and a dry sump set-up. It makes around 800hp at the crank and sounds fantastic when he gets it up over that 8000rpm mark. Mopar porn at it's finest.





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.





Turbocharged EFI Slant Six Valiant
Cameron Tilley's turbocharged and EFI slant six powered Valiant might just be one of the most awesome slant six powered streetcars in the world. Not only can the car run easy low 11sec quarter mile times but it's also totally streetable. Gotta love the push bottom auto transmission as well.





Wagon Westoration - Part 2
The second part of our quick and easy Valiant Wagon makeover. I pull the old head off and fit a better head and carby set-up. Background music is Neolith by Kevin MacLeod from Incompetech.com





WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our time but never one that glowed so brightly.





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





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.





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. :)





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.





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.





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.





Twin Turbo VE Valiant at Sydney Dragway
Check out this crazy combo! Two whopping great turbos hang through the bonnet of this '68 VE Valiant. Now I didn't get a chance to talk to the owner in person, but people tell me it's got a 410 cube big block. Not sure if that correct or not, but it's obviously still getting sorted because they seemed to be testing the launch more than anything on the day. Hopefully we'll see some decent times out of this car in the future.





Harley Wheelstand - Hang on!
This Harley rider got a little more than he bargained for when he launched at Sydney Dragway recently. He did well to stay on it and then he even got back into the throttle. Bloody amazing.





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.





Wagon Westoration - Part-4
It's been a while coming because I've been pretty busy but here's part-4 of our VG Wagon fix up. I'll have part 5 up soon.
