Holden Commodore HSV Gets New Blower, Takes LS3 V8 to 644 HP

MELBOURNE, Australia — Anyone who drives the HSV version of the Holden Commodore is interested in power. That little bit extra that many HSV E2 owners desire has just been granted by Walkinshaw Performance (WP). The company's E2 Supercar kit includes a new supercharger that extracts a massive 644 horsepower from General Motors' 6.2-liter LS3 V8.

The E2 Supercar kit's WP190 supercharger is finished in black and, in addition to all those horses, endows the Commodore with 592 pound-feet of torque. The Commodore, of course, was the basis for the now-deceased Pontiac G8.

The price of the package is the equivalent of a cool $44,975, but for that, customers also receive a full no-cost drivetrain warranty for vehicles still under HSV's new-car warranty, plus a WP 3-inch, two-stage exhaust system and a lowered suspension kit.

Cosmetic upgrades include WP unique new 20-inch alloy wheels, carbon-fiber fender vents, hood scoops, mirrors and hood header, WP engine covers and a slim carbon-fiber rear deck spoiler.

Inside Line says: Fast, collectible times Down Under. We're starting to miss the G8 GXP all over again. — Mike Jarvis, Correspondent
