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.

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

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.
