1986 944 turbo/951 Porsche. I have spent
the last 9 months rebuilding my porvette project since my first car went
bad the first three weeks running it due to some misleading information
about the previous engine.
Now I have built an LS1 block with LS6 heads and fully upgrade internals.
This is the time I get to see if my first complete engine build comes
together or falls apart.
More vids to come as I get the car off stands and slowly modify and upgrade
the rest of the setup.

First Start 5.3L Powered 1955 Chevy 210 Two Door
First official start up of my 55' Chevy now that the motor is mostly
complete. The engine is a 5.3L LM7, with LS1 intake manifold, modified
stock truck manifolds, dual 2 1/4 Exhaust going into Thush mufflers. I didn't have
a MAF sensor hooked up so when I first started it, the idle was jumping
around a bit. Last clip is after I added dual tailpipes out under the rear
How to completely drain GM LT1 engine coolant
Due to it's unique reverse-flow cooling system, some people can be
intimidated when it comes to proper cooling system maintenance on GM 5.7L
LT1 and 4.3L L99 engines.
In this video I show how to completely drain the engine block of coolant
on these engines. Merely draining the radiator leaves 60% of the old
coolant in the block, and also does not facilitate being able to run fresh
water through the cooling passages to remove sediment and rust.
Follow along as we do the process on our subject vehicle, a 1994 Chevrolet
Caprice with 259,000 miles.Enjoy!
