Jim originally bought his VL as a bare shell, and thanks to a mate who smashed his car received an AVO kit to enter itself into the modified VLT scene.






Jim quickly gave it a fresh coat of paint in heritage green along an Aero Body kit and interior re-trim.





Where most of us would be happy with it looking this good and going well, Jim couldn’t help himself.



Thanks to his AVO kit stuffing up, and although Jim then hated it, later on he would quote that event as being “were it all started!”.
It was quickly sent over to his mate Dominic Rigoli.

The new set-up consisted of a Turbonetics T66 turbo bolted to a RB25 Twin Cam head with forged pistons, an Custom exhaust manifold, MSD ignition all being cooled down by a Micks Metalcraft Intercooler and a 3” exhaust. All this was managed through a Microtech MT-12.





All this pumped out a very healthy 425hp (317kW), and was put to the ground via a 2 speed power glide with a TCE converter and a shortened Ford 9” (who said ford weren’t good for something) and all pushed out the back via a 3” exhaust.





With it’s still new setup he managed to pull out a 10.2@131. Good enough to earn it a spot in the top 10 Street Commodores 2000.




But again Jim wanted more… Shortly after getting his 10.2 he sold of the long motor and started again…





Heading back to Tony Rigoli Performance (TRP) they worked on the new setup to get BOOSTN moving faster…




It’s new setup consists of a RB26/30 combo with a Garrett GT47 and Innovative 51mm wastegate. Inside the motor are TRP billet rods, forged pistons, copper head gasket, head studs, Innovative 51mm wastegate. It has a Microtech X6 ignition system and again all controlled and tuned through a Microtech LT-12s and a Turbosmart eBoost 2 controler.





It still uses the same setup up to get the power to the ground (2 speed power glide with a TCE converter and a shortened Ford 9”).
But has an 3.5” to help get rid of the increased power of 680hp. A considerable increase over the last motor.





With this, Jim went down to the track and managed to shock a few people with a 9.3@147 later on going and dropping that even further with a 9.263@150.31




Since then Jim and the boys and TRP have been working further on the car and have recently managed to squeeze 779hp out of the same setup and plan to drop the time even further.

Awesome machine.

One of the first VL's to ever sport a twin cam head with RB30. (Was it the first?)

Now its just gone to an even further insane level of performance and power.
