Cylinder bores won't be staying the same in the rebuild of the Zilla'* original block.

Yes, the other green supercharged car is running like a champ. It'* just nice to have the Zilla running again as well.

So you're planning to bore and stroke it to a 4.3 L

Stroke it? Never. My goal all along was to create a mildly hopped-up daily driver with a calm throttle response and very controllable launches.

Typical power levels for a totally streetable normally aspirated 4.2 litre VN-VR engine as shown above are over 200kw (270+bhp) and 385nm (285 ft.lbs) torque in a daily driveable engine that still manages much better fuel mileage than a 5 litre Holden V8 but accelerates much quicker. In fact in a typical VN-VR Commodore such an engine will easily run mid to low 14'* over the 1/4 miles with stock 3.08:1 diff ratio. Fit some 3.7:1 gears and a small hi stall converter and you have a cheap to build and run 13 second true daily driver.

I'm over those hp and tq numbers already.

Zilla brought me to work this morning. Chomping at the bit. I had a rope tied between my shoe and the seat rail to control how far the gas pedal could pull my foot down.
