Watch Australia's fastest Falcon make 2048 horsepower on the dyno

The big guns come out at Summernats Horsepower Heros

1y ago

The RIPSS Falcon was the first XR6 Turbo to run a 7 second quarter mile but now wears the crown for the highest horsepower 6-cylinder engine ever seen at Summernats. The 3.7 litre Barra engine pumped out 2048 rear-wheel horsepower on the Mainline Pro Hub dyno on Friday at Summernats 33.

Watch the dyno pull below, courtesy of Street Machine TV:

Amazingly, the record-breaking engine still uses the stock head and engine block, which handles 50 psi of boost from a 110mm Precision turbo. The build was inspired after owner Maria Passo from Dyno-mite Performance lost her drivers licence for 2 years.

Other modifications include a forged bottom end with a billet crankshaft, a 2 speed Preston Automatics powerglide transmission and a carbon fiber tailshaft. Maria is especially proud that the car is 100% street driven.

  • I'm surprised a VT commodore actually lasted this long!

    • Guaranteed at least three of the door handles don't work

    • Luckily the under carriage has mostly been replaced. That would explain why it has lasted so long!
