Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take, as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a 2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova" Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear USA.   The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass. It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like stock VW Bug tires.  The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.

Hemi Buildup on a '55 Chevy Bel Air! - Roadkill Ep. 29
In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine swap project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two years later, we finally get Mike Finnegan's Mopar-powered Tri-Five on the road, but not without a few problems along the way. Blown head gaskets, frayed wires, and severe sleep-deprivation are all overcome as Finnegan, Freiburger, and friends push to get this polarizing project car running again in time for an epic road trip. The BlaspHEMI '55 Chevy rides on a Jim Meyer Racing Gasser tube chassis with Viking coilover dampers and Firestone Cheater slicks out back. Up front the car has a tubular straight axle, parallel leaf springs and tires small enough to fit on a VW Bug. The rear axle is a John's Industries 9-inch with 5.43:1 gears. The Hemi began life as a 528ci Mopar crate engine, which Finnegan rebuilt with a 0.030-inch overbore, ported aluminum heads, and a Comp Cams solid roller cam. The mill is topped off with a Hilborn stack injection system with EFI controlled by a FAST EFI ECU. An Aeromotive Stealth fuel tank and pump provides the fuel while MSD provides the spark. The engine is backed by a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual gearbox with an American Powertrain installation kit and a twin-disc clutch. The car was wired with a Speedwires kit and the guys built their own fenderwell headers using parts from Hedman. To save weight, the original steel front clip was swapped out for a lightweight fiberglass tilt front end from Unlimited Products and the windows were replaced with lexan parts from ProGlass. The rollcage is a 10-point arrangement built from chrome-moly steel and TIG welded to the floor and frame. To save a ton of time, High Tech Auto Wraps covered the car in flat black vinyl instead of paint while the last of the parts were installed onto the car.

Supercharged FPV GS Test Drive
I want one. We take a drive in the new supercharged FPV GS and I tip that this is going to be the new 'tuner' car of the next decade. It's got alot of bang for it's relative low $56,000 price tag. In stock form they have 315kw at the flywheel, but it seems that FPV might be telling a little white lie about that, because it certainly feels like it's got alot more. Is it any good? Simple answer; yes, I'd have one, just make mine an auto., but i'd take a manual if you twisted my arm. :)

PILOTANDO Ford Performance Vehicles FPV GT F 351 kw 2014 aro 19 5.0 V8 Compressor 550 cv 58,1 mkgf
http://Carwp.blogspot.com.br (from Ford Press Release) Ford officially launched its celebration FPV models in Australia, the limited-edition FPV GT F sedan and Pursuit Ute. The most powerful GT sedan ever produced by Ford Australia, the FPV GT F is powered by a 351 kilowatt supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. The GT F's output was specifically chosen as a reference to the iconic 351 cubic-inch 5.8 litre V8s that powered the original Falcon GTs. The beating heart of the GT F has undergone specialised development by the Ford Product Development team and partner Prodrive Premcar to meet customer expectations of both performance and driveability. "Our goal was to create the best vehicle we could; a vehicle that pays respect to Ford GTs of old yet celebrates all that is good about Ford's performance credentials," FPV Chief Program Engineer, Peter de Leur, said. Apart from developing a character-filled 351 kW of power, the V8 engine in the GT F sedan has a transient overBoost function in the engine management system that will enable drivers to access 15 per cent more power, if the prevailing conditions are favourable. The GT F 351's power curve has been calculated to deliver a very noticeable feel to the car's performance. This is delivered in every gear above 4000 rpm, other than first gear. "When we started this program we had an opportunity to look at a performance increase for the engine so we developed a strategy around the calibration that allowed for a performance upgrade without impacting the all-round driveability of the car. In doing so, we were also able to make this car special for our FPV GT F customers. We were also able to add things like rear camber bolt adjustment on the rear suspension so it can be adjusted for track days, if a customer wishes," de Leur said. Developed to celebrate Ford's performance brand, the new FPV GT F also pays homage to the legendary Falcon GTs of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Each will carry an individual build number, with many specific numbers reserved by collectors and Falcon GT enthusiasts. Customers have rushed dealers Australia-wide to secure the celebration run of FPV GT F sedans and Pursuit utes. Very few GT F sedans remain available and there is strong interest in the Pursuit utes. Just 500 of the FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market, with an additional 50 built for New Zealand. Ford will build just 120 Pursuit Utes. In taking the covers off, Ford revealed for the first time the GT F's unique bonnet 'black out', which harks back to the original Falcon GTs. The 'black out' panel extends over the roof and rear deck lid, giving the last FPV a unique look. Exposed too was the model's distinctive 'stealth' exterior striping package, together with gloss black accents on the 'raccoon eyes', grilles, appliques, door handles, mirrors and rear diffuser, ensuring that the GT F is unlike anything that has come before it. 'GT orange' detailing is another feature of this newest and celebratory FPV, which used on the model's unique '351' badging, instrument dial faces, seat stitching and embroidery, build number and manual transmission plaquette and the ICC start-up screen. Ford's designers have given the interior finishes an even more contemporary look with darker tones and more lustrous finishes, including to the instrument panel spears, which have a look new to previous FPV models. Available in five colour variants from the Ford palette, FPV GT F buyers have been given the choice of three colour tonings that convey either a bold and modern look, tone-on-tone elegance or a sense of heritage that recreates the original look of the first Falcon GT. Ford also announced that every FPV GT F owner will be able to purchase a tailored car cover in dark grey and with model logo and stripe print.

Quick FPV Ford F6 turbo street car
Vel's FPV F6 runs a personal best pass at Heathcote. With 420hp on tap in stock form a few basic upgrades has seen this Ford FG run fast with ease. A switch to ethanol E85 fuel, Plazmaman Intercooler upgrade, slightly larger than factory Garrett T04Z turbo and a C-series transmission are responsible for the newfound speed. Like many powerful Barra 4.0L turbo six engines, the internals remain factory stock.
