    W547 Walkinshaw package

    Walkinshaw today announced a W547 package for LS3 Holden and HSV for $25,990.....let's call it 26 grand.

    Seems a WP230 blower, exhaust I assume 3", injectors, cam, HD valve springs, CAI, tune. What I could gleam from their Facebook release of info...

    547kw and 880Nm

    But wait the there's more the first 50 get yellow blower and rocker covers, a V8 super car hot lap and a signed photo of Lee Holdsworth V8 super car.

    Interesting no mention of any brake upgrade, one would of thought that launching a missile like that you would need 6 piston calliper brake system to pull it up.

    No mention of any possible clutch or tranny upgrade requirement....

    What a rip off from Walkinshaw......on the other hand VCM is by no means cheap you could walk in there get a better heartbeat blower, cam, springs, headers etc too for far less coin.

    Heartbeat blower fitted, includes injectors, OTR and tune: $13,990
    Full exhaust 1"7/8, 3" stainless steel $3100
    Cam/springs fitted $1500

    Total $18,590

    You just saved $7400 and you made more HP...LOL
    You can thank me later

    For that price you could build a proper race engine that doesn't need a blower!

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ My thoughts exactly! I could have a wicked 427 or even 454 for that price.

    In respect to the brakes, I'm guessing they would be relying on someone with an SSVR with the 4p Brembo's front and rear.
