Pontiac V8 Water Pump Modification Tip Video V8TV "Routy" 69 Firebird
http://www.v8tvshow.com/69firebird - 314-783-8325 - The Pontiac 400 V8 engine that we're using in our 1969 Firebird project called "Routy" came to us completely as a rebuilt long-block with all new parts inside, but we were charged with the task of doing the final assembly and detail work. This time, we're test-assembling the brackets and parts on the engine, and came across a great tip to help keep your Pontiac V8 engine running cool.
Spectre Performance 1970 El Camino Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/optimadvd - Amir Rosenbaum brought the Speed By
Spectre 1970 El Camino to the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event
in Pahrump, NV, where we took a quick look at the car. It's a super-slick
road and track machine, powered by a dry-sumped LS7 V8 that's been set back
and dropped low in the chassis and backed by a T56 6-speed manual trans.
We like the fact that Rosenbaum isn't afraid to push it to the limits on
V8TV '65 Chevelle MagnaFlow Exhaust Install Video
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Muscle cars need free-flowing Exhaust to make power, but that does not
mean the have to be obnoxiously loud. However, we all like that sweet
rumble from a healthy engine, but not droning in the cabin. What to do?
Check out this install video of a MagnaFlow stainless Exhaust system with its flow-through mufflers
and True-X crossover tubes. Not only does it look slick, but it installs
easy, does not rob power, and sounds great at all the right times.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - After the subframe was re-attached
to our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy," the reassembly began. First up was
the sheetmetal, namely the doors, fenders, core support, and the
reproduction steel Trans Am hood. We had to do a few tricks to make them
all line up correctly, but it wasn't too bad of a project. Here's how the

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
