A video of a freshly built 500+ Hp Chevy 454 big block motor being started for the first time. The motor was started on an engine stand to identify any issues before bringing the motor to the Dyno shop.

1977 Chevy C-10 SWB 454 Big Block Project Truck Idle and rev
Skip to 1:04 for photos and to 1:45 for video. Thanks. This is a short walk around of my project 1977 Chevy C10 SWB pickup. It is equipped with a very strong running 454 engine. It needs the Exhaust installed as it is currently only has open headers and the collectors are spinning when its running (you can hear it in the video) .





Chevy Big Block 454 Engine Starting
I recently built this 454. It is mostly stock with the exception of Eagle 4 bolt main cap conversion and ARP studs. Some of the internals include GM 8:1 pistons on 3/8 rods, GM cast crank, .030 bore, GM/Mercruiser cam (same as used in 454/330hp Merc. engine), double roller timing set, and small oval port heads with bronze guides. Everything in the engine is brand new and as I said in the video, it would make a sweet street rod, pickup, boat or even garden tractor engine.
