1966 GTO Blog #3 - Test Fitting L92 V8, 6 Speed

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Tonight, we bolted the Street & Performance engine plates and oil pan to the L92 V8 and 6L80E six-speed automatic combination. We were pleasantly suprised to see that it almost fits the car without modification, but we will need to do some more test fitting to be sure.

1966 GTO Blog #4 - Shifting Gears V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We spent many hours and days contemplating how to make the giant 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission fit under the '66 GTO, but it looks like the surgery required will push this car well beyond its deadline and budget. While it is a cool transmission, the 6L80E is simply enourmous, and in order to make it fit under the car, we'd have to cut the entire floor out and fab a whole new tunnel, raise the enigine, and try to make it clear the hood. We simply don't have the time. So, after a chat with Mark Bowler of Bowler Performance Transmissions, the choice was made to switch to a GM 4L65E, a 4-speed automatic trans that is a much easier fit to the car. But in order to keep the car's original multi-gear theme, Bowler informed us of a new plan utilizing a Gear Vendors overdrive unit, a Bowler controller, and a Twist Machine Shrifter paddle shifter that will allow the driver to manually shift up and down through 8 gears. The detials are to come on this system, but right now we're working on getting the 4L65E into the car and getting the wiring harness to work with the L92 V8's ECM.





1966 GTO Fuel Injection Swap Dash Fab V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Transplanting a modern engine into an older car presents many challenges, one being the engine management system and gauge panel display. We chose to run a Mast Motorsports M90 ECM for a variety of reasons. Mast has been a leader in the GenIV engine family for some time, and they retail a whole line of ready-to-run high performance crate engines ranging up to 700 horsepower, and when controlled by their M90 ECM, they are completely street drivable. We used the M90 ECM, a Mast harness, and their drive-by-wire throttle pedal in our GTO. The M90 features complete tunability, wideband O2 feedback, and knock sensor feedback to let high performance engines run on pump gas without issue. The L92 V8 engine uses electronic sensors on the block for vital functions, and the info is all sent to the Mast Motorsports M90 Engine Management system just as it would be in the 2007 GMC Yukon the in which engine was originally installed. The M90 features CAN network connectivity, which allows it to pass data from the ECM to other devices. Watch the video and read on how the we used very trick Mast CAN Network gauges to monitor the GTO's vitals in a clean, simple manner.





1966 GTO: First Drive! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The 1966 GTO was finally ready to hit the road. We bled the Wilwood brakes, had all the fluids topped off, the ride height set, and it was time to take to the streets. Our goal was to build a car that handled flat in the corners, made lots of power, and was comfortable to drive, and the '66 GTO scored in all departments. Check it out!





1966 GTO: TCI Transmission Controller V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Electronically controlled automatic transmissions offer tremendous tuning pssibilities and features, but only if you have the right hardware and software to make them sing. In this episode, we install a Transmission Control Unit (TCU) from TCI and set it up with TCI's T-COM 2 software. Once we installed the TCU in the car, we used a kit from Shiftworks to adapt our original GTO 2-speed console shifter to work with the new 4L65E electronic 4-speed automatic.

1971 Olds "S71" Dash Panel Repair V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The original dash panel was pretty rusty on our 1971 Olds "S71" project. These cars tended to hold water and moisture under the stainless windshield trim, and that would cause big rust holes to form under the trim, and then the driver's feet would get wet. The sheet metal to repair this area is not yet reproduced, so we contacted Desert Valley Auto Parts to have a section removed from a rust-free parts car to install in our Oldsmobile.





1966 GTO Blog #2 - Engine Removal V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Time for the original engine to come out of the car. After we pulled the front sheetmetal and yanked out the engine, we later were able to identify it as a date-code correct 1966 389, although we couldn't find a VIN stamp on the block. The car's VIN denotes it as a true GTO, however. This motor was reported to be a rebuilt unit. We didn't tear it down, but the multiple coats of spray paint indicate it has had a cosmetic, not mechanical, restoration.





1966 GTO Blog 6: Hood Clearance V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Just when you think you've got a simple solution, here comes another curve ball. We noticed that we had tight hood clearance on the GTO's L92 V8, mostly because of the truck-style high-mount alternator. We thought we could throw on a set of factory Camaro style brackets to lower the alternator, and slam the hood. Not so fast. The L92 is a Variable Valve Timing engine, which means it has an additional 3/4 inch of meat on the front of the timing cover. This area hides the cam phaser, the hardware that rotates the camshaft to provide the cool VVT action. It also means that low-mount aftermarket or F body brackets won't fit. After some research, we found that the guys at Mast Motorsports had the L92 figured out and suggested we use Camaro brackets and make some spacers... check out the fix.

1966 GTO Blog #5: The 4L65E Transmission Arrives V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We were excited to receive the new GM 4L65E 4-speed automatic transmission from Bowler Performance Transmissions and test fit it under the GTO. It looks to be a MUCH better fit than the 6L80E. And, when combined with the GearsVendors overdrive unit and a Twist Machine Shrifter paddle shifter, this thing is always going to be in its happy RPM range.
