Driven hard! ~ Heartbeat Holden Torana

In Burnout, Drag, Dyno, Video by fullboost

After selling his twin turbo 408 cubic inch LS3 V8 powered Torana, it didn’t take long for Luke to decide to build another tuff street Holden. Going with a different route this time out the car is boosted by a Magnuson Heartbeat supercharger.

The stock stroke LS3 still retains the factory piston and rod combo but up top a pair of Higgins CNC ported heads are fitted. Making a little less power than the old car, the current Torana has an extremely usable torque band both on the street and at the track. Once again backed by a HASTY auto trans built Powerglide transmission.
