1012hp Harrop-supercharged FG FPV GT-P

After all the mods completed on Brenton's FPV, he now plans to drive it as much as he can and enjoy all the work that has gone into it

“It’s been four years since my FG FPV GT-P was last in Street Machine, and I have spent that time upgrading it. It’s been converted to run E85 fuel, with 1500cc injectors and twin StreetFighter fuel pumps, and I’ve replaced the 1.9-litre supercharger with a Harrop TVS2300 and added a Mishimoto oil cooler.

“All this complements the Ford Racing twin 65mm throttlebodies, tuned ceramic headers and three-inch StreetFighter exhaust with high-flow cats. These mods have resulted in a very healthy dyno run of 1012hp and 848lb-ft of torque, with all the work done by KPM Motorsport.

“The rear guards have been cut and widened by 70mm on each side, enabling huge 295/30R20 tyres to be fitted. It has been completely repainted in Kinetic Blue with blue candy and red undertones, with side and bonnet stripes in PPG silver paint rather than the usual sticker package.

“To protect the new paint, my son Matt and Tom from The Vinyl Touch wrapped it in clear PPF. More engine bay fabrication has been done by Bart at AAA Exhausts, and rear ’bags have been fitted.

“I am pleased to say that the car is now completed – according to my wife Ngaire, anyway – and it has since won a bunch of awards, including Best Body & Paint, Best Engine Bay and Best Street Machine in the Hi Tech Category at the Adelaide Auto Expo last year.

“My plan now is to drive it as much as I can and enjoy all the work that has gone into it.”
