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.

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.





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.





Slant Sixes go wild

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.
