WK statesman 5.7, VS exec TURBO
Hey guys, this is bazza, a burnout car that me and two mates built. We got this standard exec for 300 bucks with a blown auto and an interior that looked like a family of puppies was living in it!!

We welded the diff, replaced the cog box and put a pod filter hanging out the bonnet and we were ready to go to Winton

We expected Bazza to die but 16 tires later he was still breathing, so back to the drawing board..... TURBO!!

Late Thursday night... Easternats eve at 1AM Bazza wheezed into life. we took him for his first test drive around the streets of Carrum, We pulled out of the driveway, gassed it and Bazza launched away in a cloud of tire smoke. he lives!!

During the Easternats one of our co-drivers (*cough* "woods") pushed Bazza to the limit and blew a head gasket.... GRRR. we got it going again, with 3 packs of chemmie-weld . We let our co-drive have another crack on Monday... he blew our radiator... Dam!

Well two days later we had our hands on another two engines and he’s going to be stronger than ever.

after the easternats we treated bazza to a new paind job and gave him a set of micky T's

Keep an eye out for us at Winton’s performance car mania 09!!

I'm as interested as anyone else - it looks better than some of the ""roadworthy and registered"" commodores i've seen around.... However, don't be tempted to post about your illegal escapades - site rule - i'd rather read about the build than have to close the thread because of the site rules.

It's looking..... well..... it looks.... like something from mad max.

Nah this thing is a track car only... only time its on the rd is to put it on the trailor. pretty much its an NA motor with a T3/4 Hybrid turbo bolted onto one side of the motor. spools up fine on one bank. kicks out 7psi... we think, i only put boost guage on thursday night befor easternats and it wasn't working. turns out had it connected to the wrong vac/boost hose but woods blew the head gasket on the weekend and have only run it once to get it off the trailer.

The turbo manifold is just the stock manifold bolted upside down with a couple mods to make it fit. i made the turbo flange my self cause at the time i worked at bluescope steel and had time on night shifts to make it.

u might see an intercooler in the hole of the bumper.. that is infact not in use.
took alot of work to talk Woods our mechanic mate out of running the cooler. but he still intends on doing it after we rebuild another engine. just cant get through to him lol. anything else u wish to know about the car just ask.

Cheers Rob
