1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero temperatures. So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start after sitting. The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of the pedal, off it went! The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more videos on it soon, so stay tuned. If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.

Comp Cams Thumpr Cam With Flowmaster 80 Series
New Exhaust and front grills coming soon!**Cam Information Below** The newest line of camshafts from Comp Cams is the "Thumpr". This line of retro-fit hydraulic roller and hydraulic flat tappet cams is designed for use in engines that originally used a flat tappet cam. It will give a significant increase in horsepower over an identical flat tappet grind. The "Thumpr" uses lobe profiles and grind characteristics that produce an early valve opening, long Exhaust duration, and a generous overlap to give the engine a powerful and hard hitting Exhaust note and a rough idle without sacrificing power output or streetability. RPM Range: 2,000 to 5,800 rpm Duration @ .050" lift: 227/241 (int/exh) Valve lift: .479/.465 (int/exh) Ideal for high performance street use, stock converter ok, best with 2000+ converter and gears, choppy, thumping idle. Comp Cams 12-600-4 • Muscle car sound is back • Hard hitting, lumpy idle • Excellent throttle response and "streetability" • Significant horsepower increase and a stock y-pipe with no converter. some others put into the engine too.
