This is awesome, man. I only know of Holden from Gran Turismo. Never seen anything like this here in the USA. The stock interior is really cool, looks like a complete restore or something. Why do you have 4 pedals? Just a foot rest? This would be sick as a twin turbo!

Is this vehicle related to the Chevrolet SS truck?

Yea one pedal is just the foot rest.

Not related to the Chev SS, It is otherwise known as:
El-camino
Chevrolet lumina ute
Pontiac G8 Sport Truck.



And a topgear video: Newer model, but same car.

Long time no see

Damn that looks nice and so simple, almost looks like the original headers flipped.
I'll have to check measurements, but I think the radiator would have to move to fit a turbo in that position.

That is a beautiful vehicle
Before you dropped it, how high was it, and how much weight could it carry?
Or is it similar to the Chevy SSR, (US), in that it wasn't really meant to be used as a truck, or in the SSR's case, fast...

Isn't the Commodore the same as our G8? I love these little vehicles <~~~ best word I could use to describe it as I don't know whether to call it a car or a truck.

What kind of headers are on this?

Also, was this done on a Dynojet dyno? 400hp seems a little generous in my LSX experience.

I'm not sure what brand they are, and I'm not sure what Dyno - Was done by the guy before me.

400hp isn't that odd modified considering the HSV LS1 came standard with 380hp, and the LS2 version with 400hp.

Though I'm yet to prove it myself.

Lsd Diff - Yes
Torque's nice enough to allow highway cruising at 1500rpm.




Only downfall at the moment is that winter is coming, ANY form of wet road mixed with more that a light touch of throttle, results in instant drifting.
