1971 Olds "S71" Chassis Clean-Up V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - After the chassis was media blasted, the guys took the welders, grinders, and sanders to the frame to clean-up what the factory left behind. They welded up unfinished factory seams, ground off excess welding slag and started measuring to add additional steel to "box" the original frame for strength. They also try out the new HTP micro belt sander to clean tight areas.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Gear Vendors has been displaying their bolt-on overdrive units at the SEMA show since 1981, and Rick Johnson brings us up to speed on the latest from Gear Vendors. They have units that fit just about every application imaginable, and they handle over 1000 horsepower with ease. Add to that the 28% increase in fuel economy (or higher!) and you have a great mod for your muscle car or tow vehicle. We tested one in project Splitter and were really impressed with the performance.

1966 GTO Blog #4 - Shifting Gears V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We spent many hours and days contemplating how to make the giant 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission fit under the '66 GTO, but it looks like the surgery required will push this car well beyond its deadline and budget. While it is a cool transmission, the 6L80E is simply enourmous, and in order to make it fit under the car, we'd have to cut the entire floor out and fab a whole new tunnel, raise the enigine, and try to make it clear the hood. We simply don't have the time. So, after a chat with Mark Bowler of Bowler Performance Transmissions, the choice was made to switch to a GM 4L65E, a 4-speed automatic trans that is a much easier fit to the car. But in order to keep the car's original multi-gear theme, Bowler informed us of a new plan utilizing a Gear Vendors overdrive unit, a Bowler controller, and a Twist Machine Shrifter paddle shifter that will allow the driver to manually shift up and down through 8 gears. The detials are to come on this system, but right now we're working on getting the 4L65E into the car and getting the wiring harness to work with the L92 V8's ECM.
