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 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.

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.
