1986 Holden VL Commodore Turbo performance testing
Brett Davis - 30/5/2017
The Holden VL Commodore is a cult classic in Australia, featuring arguably one of the sleekest exterior designs ever applied to the Aussie-built nameplate, while featuring a lusty RB-series Nissan Skyline engine.
Only some mild modifications are made on this one, including a 3.0-inch exhaust, front-mounted intercooler, a two-stage boost controller with 8/13psi, and an upgraded fuel pump. The rest of the car is pretty much original, with minor changes to the interior.
Check out our 0-100km/h and engine sound video below. It’s interesting to see how power and response in engines has changed over the years, with turbo-lag being very evident in the good ol’ days.
