454 V8 with open headers. And a link to the very first startup so the difference between how it was and how it is now can be seen.
CHEVY NOVA BIG BLOCK BUILD PT 19 REAL FIRST START
THIS IS A REAL FIRST START VIDEO OF THE 489 NOVA COMING ALIVE. NOT TUNED NOT IDLING JUST A FIRST START. SORRY FOR THE SHAKY VIDEO MY BROTHER WAS CRAPPING HIS PANTS BECAUSE THE CAR WAS SO LOUD. SMOKE WAS COMING FROM THE HEADERS BECAUSE OF FRESH HI HEAT PAINT.
74 Chevy Nova Update 19 - Big Block 454 V8 Engine Makeover
Here I show what I have done to the Big block 454 v8 engine that was in the 74 Nova. Though I have been working on the body, behind the scenes I have been also working on this engine. Now I reveal what I have done to it. Internally I replaced the oil pump as the engine was rebuilt by previous owner.
