'The Green Machine' VH Commodore 253 stroked to a 310 with Chev internals
The Green Machine - for shits and giggles my brother and I built a 310
stroker from a 253 Holden V8 that was already matching to this VH. Bare
block rebuild with chev internals and top of the range other internal
goodies.... rather expensive "shits and giggles" and believe me, I wasn't
giggling afterwards to finish it off. But DAMN it has some POWER! It make
that VH look like its about 200kg and not the 1.4 tonne it should be. We do
have other video of it elsewhere, but I am stll looking for it....
Please Note - Ignore the running commentary of assisting someone to park
the car, who ignores everything you say...or partly he can't hear anything
I am saying either...lol
Quick VL turbo street car - CK Automotive
A bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing is a good way to describe Chris' CK
Automotive Holden VL Commodore turbo.
The forged Nissan SOHC RB30 engine is Boosted by a Garrett GT4294R turbo, Loui's Performance plenum, MicroTech E85
fuel system, Powerglide trans, 35-spline Borg Warner diff all through stock
VL Commodore suspension. The car ran a first time out 9.57 at 149mph pass
using a complete 3in Exhaust and this
time out Chris dropped it for even better results.
