http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum - 16 year old kids are in a tough spot these days. We're not talking about the pressures of daily life and all that B.S.; we're referring to the fact that the kids who are into cool cars usually don't have the cash or the ability to get their mitts on a cool ride. Add to that un-sympathetic parents, and you've got millions of high schoolers rollin' beat up civics or other cheap junk. Dale Schwartz has a leg up, however, with his new project they're calling the Y-Gen 3rd-Gen. It's a Trans Am that's a full 7 years older than Dale, but he was able to build a car he wanted the way he wanted.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a
low-performance 350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported
to have less than 10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a
late-model EFI swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at
what we had and see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350
is a parts-store type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean
bottom end. The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we
used the Dynomation
engine simulation software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment,
we clean up the engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp
Cams Xtreme Energy cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance
aluminum cylinder heads, a Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD
Pro-Billet distributor, some Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street
Avenger camshaft. Some of the parts we already had like the MSD unit,
the intake, and the carb, but the cam and heads are new. Here's how it

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Splitter is all back together and it was finally
time to take to the streets! Brett Evans toured us around with the 1970

inconspicuous in a borderline race car! We'll be at the track soon to
get some real numbers, both at the drag strip and on the road course.

commanding presence than the famous Trans Am. Not since 1997 have these two
iconic brands joined forces...until now.
