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.

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!





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.





Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can fit to the car and turbo it while remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip warrior. Nice one Joe!





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. :)





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.





Slant Sixes go wild

Wagon Westoration Part-5
Getting the wagon ready for rego in NSW.





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.





EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance (Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs). He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.





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.





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?





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.





H8TRED Shares The Love At Avalon
Lots of RPMs and passenger antics. Worth the watch





MELTEM Goes Bang!
This blown V8 powered Toyota Corolla was going great until the bits inside the engine decided they wanted to be outside.
