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

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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 - 314-783-8325 - 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 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.





1971 Olds "S71" Dash Panel Repair V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.





1969 Chevelle SS496 Blog Part 30 - Deadline: SEMA, 2007 V8T
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Some trim on old cars is anodized aluminum - it's got a thin clear coating over polished aluminum. This kind of trim is tricky to fix because you cannot just polish the anodized coating. Here, we show you how to make aluminum trim shine like new. Comment on http://www.v8tvshow.com today!
