The V8 Barstool [S2 Ep. 4-3]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers on your machine!

Probably the best sounding Dual exhaust riding Lawnmower!
This is my craftsman lawn mower with a 19 hp oppose twin. I put dual Exhaust on it. No noticable power differance but sounds cool. I think is sounds better in person. I made it with the remains of original Exhaust and some water pipe I got for free. I welded the original flange mounts to engine up to the water piping.

Paul Jones dropped an alcohol-fuel Ford 351 Cleveland V8 running 15:1 CR into his Cub Cadet riding mower. And why not? It fits, doesn't it? Built for pulling contests, but also handy when you need the lawn done and you don't have a lot of time. Just listen to that thing bark.
