The latest edition is out now and features a bumper crop of LS-powered beauties, including Street Machine’s own Carnage twin-turbo MX5.7 project. Reading about the trials and tribulations endured en route to its debut at Red CentreNATS is enough to bring a tear to Scotty’s eye!
On the cover is Dave Guilfoyle’s gorgeous Purr-Pull HQ GTS Monaro, a former SM cover car (Dec ’15) that recently had its old 6/71-blown 502ci BBC swapped out for a Magnuson-blown 427ci LSX with thoroughly impressive results.
Also representing the blown brigade among the feature cars is an LS3-powered HDT VK SS Commodore and an LSA-powered rare Range Rover.
Team Turbocharged includes an LSX-powered VY Commodore one-tonner built for Powercruise, an LS1-powered HG street-and-strip sedan, an LS3-powered Nissan 200SX, and a twin-turbo LS2-powered Ford Cortina.
The natural breathers include an LS2-powered Holden Rodeo burnout car and a cool LS3-powered Camaro cruiser.
Elsewhere in the mag, the last Australian muscle car ever built, HSV’s GTSR W1, is put through its paces, and there’s a separate yarn on what our post-Holden imported muscle car future might look like.
As always, there’s loads meaty tech talk for tinkerers to sink their fangs into, including an in-depth look at Mercury Racing’s insane twin-turbo QC4 quad-cam donk and a study of aftermarket clutch options for LS- powered cars.
LSX Tuner #6 is out now, and damn any newsagent that doesn’t stock it.
