The first enhancement package developed for the VF Commodore by the Melbourne-based Holden tuner and the first in the new ‘W Series’ of upgrades, the W310 pack combines a host of mechanical enhancements to boost the 6.0-litre V8’s output from 270kW/530Nm to 310kW/580Nm.
Included in the VF Commodore SS W310 pack are Walkinshaw ceramic-coated headers, high-flow catalytic converters, a Walkinshaw stainless steel cat black exhaust system, Walkinshaw cold air intake, a custom ECU calibration and a W310 build plate and rear deck-lid badging. (The wrapped carbonfibre-look bonnet and bootlid spoiler are not part of the package.)
The SS W310 is backed by Walkinshaw Performance’s driveline warranty, which lasts for the life of the standard manufacturer’s warranty – three years/100,000km.
Walkinshaw Performance general manager Tony Harris says the W310 pack is the best performance package the company has ever produced.
“The final figures are impressive as our previous power pack saw gains of up to 10 per cent,” Harris said. “With the W310 package it’s more like 20 per cent, and we did this without compromising the driveability of the vehicle.
“One of the highlights of this package is the all-new exhaust system that brings back the growl V8 owners love so much.”
The W310 pack is priced from $6495, totalling $48,485 when added to the price of the Commodore SS manual and $50,685 with the automatic.
