David Troisi transformed his former workhorse wagon into a 500rwkW supercharged LSX-powered monster

“IT’S hard to believe that this VY SS wagon used to be my work car 12 years ago.

What started with just getting it lowered with a set of wheels and an exhaust has now turned into a 500rwkW supercharged LSX-powered monster.

My lovely wife had it repainted in Jaguar Black Cherry for my 30th and since then it’s been given a heart transplant. It now runs a 402ci LSX with all the goodies inside and a Vortech V7 supercharger with an E85 fuel system.

It’s built to be a tough street car, so it still retains the factory T56 manual. I had a set of custom 19-inch Showwheels made for it and I added a Harrop Ultimate brake kit to help pull her up.

I also put some custom Coulson seats in there for a bit more luxury. Now I just enjoy driving her!

Massive thanks to Rob Vella; Michael Agius; Dave Asciak; Mark and the boys at Sass Automotive for all their help along the way; but mostly to my wife Pat who’s supported me through it all.”
