SHAUN Cole’s eight-second VL Turbo was one of the bigger hitters at this year’s Street Machine Summernats 30 Horsepower Heroes dyno comp. Running a forged single-cam RB30 with a big Garrett GTX42 turbo and running on E85 juice, the car generally makes around the 760rwhp mark at over 40psi. The hot temps up in Canberra weren’t doing Shaun’s high-boost setup any favours, but the VL still managed to put 565.9rwhp through the rollers.
The rest of the combo is a transbraked Powerglide with a nine-inch rear end. The car is regularly driven to and from Calder Park where it has run 8.8 @ 155mph before.
