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 - 314-783-8325 - 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 - 314-783-8325 -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!





1966 GTO Blog #4 - Shifting Gears V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We spent many hours and days contemplating how to make the giant 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission fit under the '66 GTO, but it looks like the surgery required will push this car well beyond its deadline and budget. While it is a cool transmission, the 6L80E is simply enourmous, and in order to make it fit under the car, we'd have to cut the entire floor out and fab a whole new tunnel, raise the enigine, and try to make it clear the hood. We simply don't have the time. So, after a chat with Mark Bowler of Bowler Performance Transmissions, the choice was made to switch to a GM 4L65E, a 4-speed automatic trans that is a much easier fit to the car. But in order to keep the car's original multi-gear theme, Bowler informed us of a new plan utilizing a Gear Vendors overdrive unit, a Bowler controller, and a Twist Machine Shrifter paddle shifter that will allow the driver to manually shift up and down through 8 gears. The detials are to come on this system, but right now we're working on getting the 4L65E into the car and getting the wiring harness to work with the L92 V8's ECM.

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 Custom Pontiac GTO - Generation Gap: GTOs
Cast your vote here: http://www.hagerty.com/Articles-Videos/Articles/2014/08/29/Generation-Gap-G TO Today on “Generation Gap,” we’re visiting the Lingenfelter Collection. Known for Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, Ken Lingenfelter was kind enough to let us experience some of his personal cars. Being able to check a few cars off our bucket list, we decided to compare GTOs. Davin has picked the aggressive muscle of a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge, equipped with a 366 HP 400 V-8 High Output engine with Ram Air III. Matt picked a bit of a cheater 2006 Pontiac Custom GTO. The modern GTO is straight from GM Performance with a Twin turbo LS2 with 750 HP. Which one would you rather drive? Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsAegdhiYLEoaFGuJFVrqFQ?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com

1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.





1966 GTO Part 9: Air Ride Suspension Install 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - This GTO is going to be driven hard, so the suspension system needs to be up for the task of not only handling well, but it also needs to have a smooth ride. To accomplish this double-duty trick, we chose to install an Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge System. We saw this system in action on a '66 Chevelle on an autocross track and couldn't believe the performance... flat cornering, predictible handling, and a smooth ride all in one. The Street Challenge System containes everything you need to transform your car's ride and handling, complete with upper and lower Strong Arm control arms front and rear, tall spindles, Shock Wave air spring / double adjustable shock combination units, Muscle Bar sway bars, Posi Link endlinks, AirPod self-contained compressor / controller / air tank, Level Pro ride height sensors and control unit, keyfob remotes, air lines, and more. This time, we're installing the front suspension components.
