startup of my 1983 chevy el camino after swapping in a 6.0l vortec engine. This is just a progress video. The vehicle is far from done. The car has a built 350C transmission. The engine and the rest of the car is stock. I wish i was able to close the stock hood, but the way that I mounted the engine necessitates a cowl hood.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.

1970 Chevrolet El Camino
Chevrolet El Camino was a coupe utility vehicle produced by the Chevrolet
division of General Motors between 1959 and 1987. Introduced in the
1959--1960 model years in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero, its
first run lasted only one year. Production resumed for the 1964--1977 model
years based on the Chevelle platform, and continued for the 1978--1987
model years based on the Malibu. Although based on corresponding Chevrolet
car lines, the vehicle is classified and titled in North America as a
truck. GMC's badge engineered El Camino variant, the Sprint, was introduced
for the 1971 model year. Renamed Caballero in 1978, it was also produced
through the 1987 model year.
In Spanish, El Camino means "the road".

1965 El Camino, BBC 565 with a HUGE F3R139 Procharger and all the other
goodies... Runs 8 second quarters, 1500HP capable. 1327 rwhp on the Dyno run in this video. From
Minnesota. Featured at CarCraft summer nationals every year. Always wins
the Dyno shootout.
Owned and street driven by Wayne Fritchie. I have seen it on the road in
town. Not a trailer baby-but also eats up at the track.

GM LS1 V8 Engine Swap Part I
Catching up on the times.. I have thrown in the towel on old obsolete
engines and have moved forward into a newer technology. I have given up on
my 455 for the simple fact that it is expensive to drive with high fuel
prices.. and an LS engine will provide me with better all around
performance and economy..
UPDATE: I ended up tossing a Q-jet on the 5.3 and calling it a day with the
LS1 cam this little guy pulls to 6000 no problem and melts the tires
without a problem.. You simply can't beat these little motors.
