Rod’s Holden HQ Ute is a cool looking ride. The farm-like outside does a great job hiding what lies underneath in a Turbonetics 88mm turbocharged L98 GM V8 engine. With the help of Pro Flow Fabrications & Dyno Rod took the car to the drags for the first time. [ Pro Flow Fabrications & Dyno ]

The Powerplant behind that Turbo is a L98.

The L98 is a slightly modified version of the L76. Since Holden did not use the displacement on demand technology of the L76, some redundant hardware was removed to form the L98. Power increased to 362 bhp (270 kW) at 5700 rpm and 391 lb·ft (530 N·m) at 4400 rpm.

Applications for the L98:

2006 (MY06) Holden VZ SS Thunder Ute
2006–2010 Holden VE Commodore (manual only from 2008–2010)
2006–2010 Holden VE Ute (manual only from 2008–2010)
2006–2008 Holden WM Statesman/Caprice

Holden modified the L98 by removing the internal components used for the active management fuel system. This boosted horsepower 362 horsepower and 391 foot-pounds of torque, which was an improvement over the standard L76 Holden V-8. The L98 featured different exhaust manifolds, performance-enhanced calibration and 2.25-inch dual exhaust with quad pipes and high-flow exhausts. It featured the same compression ratio and fuel injection system as the standard L76 Holden engine. The block, cylinder head and pistons were cast aluminum. The camshaft was billet steel, and the connecting rods were forged powdered metal. The L98 powered Holden passenger cars, the 2007 and 2008 Chevrolet Lumina Super Sport and the Chevrolet Caprice Super Sport.
