Nissan RB30 SOHC 3L engine built and tuned by JPC making over 1200hp on

Improvements come from a custom JPC turbocharger, manifolding, roller rockers and cam
gear. Fuel is fed via ID2000cc injectors and an Autronic computer system.
This engine has previously run 8.79 at 160.25mph (with less power) in a

Powerglide transmission, 9in rear end and 28x9in slicks.

The original BT1 - Fast VL turbo street car
Bill's BT1 ran a P.B of 9.36/146. The Nissan RB30 Garrett GT42 combination
comes from Loui's Performance and is fuelled by E85 ethanol through a full
Exhaust system. The only change at the
track being slicks tyres, Bill has previously run into the nines on drag
radials as well.
VL turbo RB25/30 manual
As far as VL turbo's go the majority
choose to stick to an auto transmission so it was good to see Nigel's
giving his manaul box some stick at Calder Park. The VL Commodore is
powered by a D'Annello Performance Nissan RB25/30 twin cam turbo six combination that makes big power on pump
fuel. Nigel was testing a new 2-step / flat shift setup and the Holden
certainly showed promise going 10.04 at 140mph and 113mph to mid track.
