SEMA 2009 Video Coverage: Lingenfelter TA Concept Car V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The crew at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering weren't happy that GM did not bring back the Firebird along with the 2010 Camaro, so they built their own version of a TA! This one is based on the 1970 SD original, featuring the white and blue color scheme, shaker hood, honeycomb wheels, and yes... a 455 cubic-inch engine. But this engine is not a big Pontiac.. it's a new RHS-block based GM GEN IV V8 making over 600 HP! Ken Lingenfelter and engineer tech Graham Behan show us the car.
SEMA 2009 Video Coverage: Lingenfelter ZR1 Corvette V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - I think we all agree that the new Chevrolet
Corvette ZR1 is an awesome car, with its supercharged LS9 engine and
race-car suspension and brakes. However, the team at Lingenfelter
Performance Engineering knows how to free up additional performance, and
they were able to make a new ZR1 run a 10.02 second quarter mile without
modifying the stock LS9! Ken Lingenfelter and engineer tech Graham Behan
show us the car.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
SEMA 2009 Video Coverage: 1977 Firebird Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This super-slick 1977 built by Ron Jones' Garage
features one-off wheels, an LS-7 V8, Detroit Speed suspension, and a
completely custom interior. Jones' crew and Pinkie's Hot Rods even
created aluminum inner panels, a custom steel dash, and they re-created the
rear bumper cover in steel and added a fiberglass nose. It's debuting at
the SEMA show, and you can learn all about it here!
1970 Pro-Touring Pontiac GTO V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Andrew Borodin's 1970 Pontiac GTO has been around
the block a few times, and keeps picking up new tricks at every turn.
This time, Andrew ditched the previous mill - a Big Block Chevy - in
exchange for a new-tech, lightweight, all aluminum GM L92 6.2 liter V8.
The GTO rolls on a trick - but simple - suspension that sticks in the turns
and features Corvette brakes. After adding a few goodies like Corvette
accessories and intake manifold, he jammed in an LS7 camshaft and now the
Goat runs 12's, goes around corners like crazy, and still racks up 23 MPG.

1965 Chevelle Body Filler Stage - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After all the panels were aligned and all the
dents pulled, our 1965 Chvelle moved into the body filler stage. Our body
technition John started the process by grinding the steel panels to
achieve a mechanical bond as well as a chemical bond, then began mixing and
applying the Marson Mar-Glass fiberglass filler to the structural areas and
seams, followed by a coat of Marson Platinum Plus filler over the rest of
the car. Although the filler was applied over large areas, John sanded
most of it off in a process that refined the shape of the car,
straightening minor waves and surface imperfections. The filler was
followed up by a new 3M glaze applied by a new 3M Dynamic Mixing System
applicator gun. The glaze filles remaining surface scratches and
pinholes, and the gun applicator does all the mixing for you, ensuring
quick, accuratly mixed glaze (and filler) with no pinholes and reduced
waste. The entire car then went through a block sanding process. The
next step: Standox Sprayable Polyster.
