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 Blog #3 - Test Fitting L92 V8, 6 Speed
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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: Starting The L92 V8 For The First Time! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 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!

1971 Olds "S71" Trunk Floor & Wheelhouses V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This video covers the installation of a new 3-piece trunk floor and inner and outer wheelhouses from YearOne. We also installed a rear tail panel obtained from Desert Valley Auto Parts, which was removed from a rust-free donor car in Arizona. The install is pretty straight forward, and Randy Stange takes us through the steps and the tools needed to do the job and have an undetectable repair when finished. He used traditional MIG welding and the HTP Quickspot II spot welder for a clean installation.





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.

1971 Olds "S71" Blog #8 - Engine Tear Down 2
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Here's the 350 in all it's taken-apart glory. After a degreasing bath, this block and oil pan are headed out to BTR Performance where Bill Trovato will work some machining magic and reassemble the mild 350 into a turbocharged street terror. Actually, the turbo motors allow for relatively mild cams and compression ratios, so the engine will still be pretty mellow, just much more powerful.





1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The GTO came to us in primer, but we didn't want it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring light gray. So the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone paint scheme of charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an aggressive, satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and mask paper. Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more complete paint job, but this is the deal for now.
