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 bumper.
1955 Chevy Two Door Wagon, First Test Drive LS1 5.3L
I take my 55' Chevy out on its maiden voyage since the installation of a
modern GM powerplant. I installed a 5.3L LS series V8 with LS1 intake
manifold to dress it up. Behind it is a Borg Warner T10 4 Speed with Hurst
Shifter. Car still has the original rear end which needs to be addressed
because of the howling sounds you can hear in the video.

How to Install a Comp Cam in a 5.3L LM7 Part 1
I show you the basics of installing a cam in a 5.3L (LS1 type engine). The

To go along with the install I put in new 7.4" Hardened Chomoley Pushrods
