PONTIAC GTO Judge (1971 455cid, the differences basic supertuning can make)
Those who know me well, know that I always beat "SUPERTUNING"
"SUPERTUNING" "SUPERTUNING" into the ground. This video shows the
difference minor tuning can do (This is minor because a 1971 GTO's fuel/ign
calibrations are already geared for performance, so there's not as much
improvement you can make like you'd be able to on say - a late 70s
smogger). But on larger scales, HUGE differences can be made, as much
difference as adding performance parts alone. The more the car is severely
out of tune/adjust------which happens more with the more mods you make,
then the more you'll gain by supertuning it. There's another vid on YT
where an Olds 455 was built with performance parts to be totally streetable
but achieve 1hp per cubic inch. After they got the recipe of perfect parts
all together they were disappointed when she only Dynoed at 320hp. But luckily
they did not give up! After the proper ign-curve/timing & carb adjusts were
made, the engine jumped from 320 up to 455hp!! No doubt all the new
cam/intake/head mods put the old fuel/spark adjustments badly out of
calibration for the NEW BREATHING ABILITY. Also with things like dual quads
(especially to engines not originally equipped wit them), your adjustments
are most likely going to be way off and need calibration even more. There's
lots of dual quad cars out there not running well for this reason, however
the few that have been calibrated perfectly (EVERY adjustment set for the
best "stop watch" time, etc) truly do run like a bat out of hell!

One of the most aggressive looking GTO's ever built the 1972 model was once
again an options package and had a pile of comfort and style while
retaining much of the bite of its forebears. This very cool Lucerne Blue
number retains all of its original body panels, its original 400ci engine,
is exactly as the Pontiac Historical Society documents lay it out and it's
a four speed - that's the way you want one. Great cars to drive these
tigers are collectables on the rise!
Underneath, you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis. This isn't a full
frame off restoration - it didn't need one! Those are the original, clean
floors, rust free frame and original rear end and handling package
suspension. A quick evaluation is all that's necessary to see the original
brake and fuel systems were up to their tasks and required no major
replacement. That's the original undercoating you're looking at! So many of
these cars died an early death it's refreshing to see one that's so clean!
Deep blue paint covers the rock solid, original exterior. The front end is
definitely the best part with its straight body color bumper, excellent
deeply inset grilles and aggressive hood. The GTO exclusive fenders with
rear air extractors add interest to the sides of the car and look awesome
with the mint Rally II wheels and new Firestone G70x15 Wide Ovals. The body
is straight - care taken during its cosmetic restoration is evident. The
trim and chrome is in excellent shape and is mostly original to the car.
Bodywork was minimal and the finish work was done to a high standard. This
is an attractive car with no hidden gremlins.
Comfortable black vinyl seats with new covers are the order of the day in
the restored interior. The sculpted, clean dash pad covers the fully
functional and clean original gauge cluster and nice original engine turned
finish panels. Original door panels with original armrests are very nice,
interior chrome is original and excellent and there's new carpet at your
feet. The factory Formula steering wheel is in excellent shape and feels
great in your hands. The center console with its Hurst shifter is also a
clean original - there are no complaints from in here. The cabin's simply a
great place to spend time!
Open the trunk to find a brand new Wide Oval mounted to a fifth, mint Rally
II wheel. There's a new mat on the floor, the proper jack, new
weather-stripping on the rail and a fresh coat of spatter paint underneath.
Like the interior and undercarriage, there are no problems and no
Pop the hood and find the original, numbers matching engine in a detailed
engine bay. That's the correct original air cleaner on top of the rebuilt
mill. Some liberty was taken with the internals as the compression's up to
around 10:1 and there's a Ram Air IV spec cam to get the power up to where
you'd expect a 400 to be. Those are original chrome valve covers on the
motor, a restored vacuum Booster and
master cylinder on the firewall and a new battery and correct spring clamp
cables tucked away in the corner. New belts and hoses (with correct tower
clamps) are reliable replacements in this excellent driver!
Solid, original body and engine cars are tough to come by. So are desirable
cars with great color combinations and manual transmissions. And, so are
cars which are still affordable! This car's all three and it's only going
to get more valuable over time! Don't wait on this one!

Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28
with bolt-ons messing with a classic 455 swapped GTO.
The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being
tailed by an unmarked B4C (special service police) Camaro holding a radar gun (video
camera, lol) notice the nervous and unsure look on his face as we roll
beside, then his complete and total relief once he recognized a couple old
pals in just a regular Camaro, lol.
(This Camaro made 280hp
at the wheels and ran 13.1 at Mason Dixon Dragstrip)
This footage was shot way back, many years ago, with an old junky analog
camera, so apologize for the poor video quality.

70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
