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.
Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison
1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55
year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out
if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.

Ah the second installment of the Tahoe engine swap, I thought it was going
to be pretty straightforward, it gave every indication that it would be I
was very wrong. I had hoped to finish the swap in one day but given some
of the 'little' things that held me up like the fuel lines behind the ABS
modulator, no space to put the hook between the rear of the engine and the
firewall, having to take the Exhaust
off and the fastener that was placed behind the O2, little things that
added up to kicking my butt. The cool thing was that I got to use 2
cameras for this shoot which makes this a historical event, it's all for
you my dear viewers.
Stay tuned for part 2 which should be next weeks video.

2000 LS1 and Wire Harness description
I talk about a used LS1 we purchased for installation in a Devin SS we're
building right now. Don't take my wiring call-outs verbatim. I have some
notes that I will post on www.lowetechrods.com in the coming for those
adventurous enough to do it on your own. Those that aren't - well, that's
where my services come in.
This is my third LS1 retrofit installation in the last 5 years doing them
simply as a hobby initially.
