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.
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.
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: Starting The L92 V8 For The First Time! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 -In this installment, the 1966 GTO's
L92 V8 finally comes to life! Once we had our Magnaflow Exhaust system connected to the polished ceramic
Hooker LS1 A-Body swap headers, we topped off the fluids with Royal Purple
Synthetic Engine Oil, MAX ATF Transmission fluid, and Purple Ice radiator
additive. We didn't want to risk anything, and the protection of Royal
Purple against heat, friction, wear, and moisture gave us peace of mind.
Plus the reduced friction frees up power. We run Royal Purple in every
car we build and drive. But the real challenge was finding the little
electrical gremlin that kept the MAST -powered ignition system from firing.
It was our fault, and when we fixed it, it came to life in the push of a
start button. The GTO runs and sounds fantastic!
1966 GTO - 18 Days to first drive V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We're skipping ahead a little to
post real-time coverage of the GTO build... right now, we're getting the
car ready for its first drive on the 2008 Hot Rod Power Tour, and we've got
18 days to make this car a driver! We'll be posting all the detailed
install videos of each component we used on the car when they're completed,
but we thought a quick nightly update would be cool to share the daily
progress up to the first drive. This go-around, the car will be a complete
driver with a "temporary" paint scheme, as we don't have time to completely
replace the quarters and trunk floor, but we'll hit that stuff after the
Tour. However, the chassis and driveline should be nearly completed for
the shakedown on the road!
1966 GTO Blog #5: The 4L65E Transmission Arrives V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.
1966 GTO: First Drive! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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 Pontiac GTO: Project Intro V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1966 GTO has seen better days, and this
intro video explains the project details from start to finish, including
the crazy timeline. It kinda goes like this: Install GM 6.2 liter L92
V8 and 6-speed 6L80E tranmission, install Air Ride Technologies Street
Challenge air suspension system, upgrade the wheels, tires, and brakes.
Drive on Hot Rod Power Tour. Disassemble entire car, replace quarter
panels, repair holes in trunk floor, window ledges, fenders, and doors,
paint, reassemble, and take to SEMA 2008. Whew!

1966 GTO Fuel Injection Swap Dash Fab V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.
