Ian’s RB30DET Holden VL Turbo

We met Ian during our time in far North Queensland and his VL is one of the cleanest we have seen. Ian has done all the work himself apart from the tuning, which was conducted by Ray Hall from Ray Hall Turbocharging. The VL has a built RB30/25, running a Garrett GT35/40R on a 6Boost manifold, Vipec ECU, with power being through a three-speed auto gearbox.

Ian’s car was initially set up to run E85, but due to it not being available from service stations in far North Queensland, he decided to look for an alternative. After seeing the results that were achieved with the Aquamist set up in Shane’s 2JZ IS 200, Ian decided that a similar setup would suit his then requirements and allow for future growth.

We assisted Ian in the procurement of the system, installation, setup and fine tuning. The end result was a 90hp gain, with power increasing from 450hp to 540hp. Ian also managed to knock a second off his quarter mile time, setting a new PB of 10.7 @ 131mph.
