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.

Corvette Big Block Engine
Here's a video of my big block Corvette motor being started and run after being mounted to the chassis. This is one of the final steps I'm taking before lowering the body onto the chassis for the last time. It's much easier to spot and resolve issues, like oil and coolant leaks, without the body in the way. Sorry that the audio is a bit rough in the garage, next time I'll know to move the snow plow out of the way and roll the chassis into the driveway. It sounds much better in person!

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) .
