- Model:Commodore Ute
I originally bought this vehicle roughly 10 years ago. It has a stock internal 5.0L V8 with a Marks Workshop M112 supercharger kit, pushing 11psi of boost. The mass torque right from idle, definitely proves at times to be a handful on the street.
Behind the power plant is a T5, 5speed manual gearbox, mediated through an Xtreme HD clutch, and sending power to the rear wheels through a 3.9:1 ratio Borg Warner LSD.
It sits pretty on lowered suspension and rolling on the SSV 19" wheels. The rest also looks the part with a genuine HSV front bar and grill, aswell as fresh Panther Mica duco, laid down in August 2019 thanks to Novel Smash repairs.
The interior isnt a shabby place to be either, with devonish VR GTS seats, GTS shifter and pedals, and an Autometer carbon boost gauge to keep an eye on compressor levels. With the momo leather steering wheel completing the driving experience.
If you'd like to see more, and hear the soundtrack of this beast in all its glory, you can find a feature video of this car on the Torq Hub Media YouTube channel;
