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.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We've talked about the welding
techniques used from the factory in another video, and now here's a
demonstration of how to make clean plug welds with a MIG welder or how to
make factory -appearing resistance spot welds using the HTP Quickspot II
1966 Pontiac GTO: Project Intro V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1966 GTO has seen better days, and this
intro video explains the project details from start to finish, including
the crazy timeline. It kinda goes like this: Install GM 6.2 liter L92
V8 and 6-speed 6L80E tranmission, install Air Ride Technologies Street
Challenge air suspension system, upgrade the wheels, tires, and brakes.
Drive on Hot Rod Power Tour. Disassemble entire car, replace quarter
panels, repair holes in trunk floor, window ledges, fenders, and doors,
paint, reassemble, and take to SEMA 2008. Whew!
1971 Olds "S71" Trunk Floor & Wheelhouses V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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.
2005 Pontiac GTO FUN
So my Dad bought a GoPro for Christmas.... Told him I'd make sure it works.

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 Custom Pontiac GTO - Generation Gap: GTOs
Cast your vote here:
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
