1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS All Street Project Car
This is my 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. I have owned this car for 13
years and it has been in the family for over 26 years. The car has just
under 29,000 original miles. The engine and drivetrain is all original as
well as the paint and interior. I didn't drive the car much, so I decided
to make a few subtle changes, mostly in the stance, so I would drive it
more. Just don't care for the stock stance on these cars. For the front I
used 2" drop Belltech spindles and 1" drop Belltech springs. For the rear I
used OPG 3" drop rear springs. 3" total drop front and rear. I used
Belltech Street Performance shocks on all four corners. The wheels are
Center Line Retros 18 x7 front, 18 x 8 rear. Nitto NT555 tires 225/45 in
the front, 255/45 in the rear. Also for a little more sound, I went with
Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers and custom tailpipes. I drive the car a lot
now just cause I enjoy it so much more. I didn't cut anything and I have
everything to put the car back original if I ever decide to in the future.
Thanks for looking!

2015 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and Impala
See more Concept Car and Auto Show Videos at
http://concept-cars-auto-show.com. A two door Chevy Impala = Chevy Monte
Carlo to me. This is most likely what the 2015 Chevrolet Monte Carlo would
look like if GM made it.

Chevy Performance's LSX454 - Big Block Power in a Small Block Package!
Using the adage from '60's musclecars that "bigger is better", the famous
427 CID L88 was soon surpassed by a bigger, more powerful 454 CID engine in
various configurations. Today, we've followed the same path with the
Chevrolet Performance LSX454. The rugged LSX454 is all-new and designed for
serious power in the 21st century. The amazing thing is that this big
cubic inch package takes up the same physical space as a factory LS engine.
With a carburetor and a high-flow GMPP LSX-LS7 intake manifold, the LSX454
will produce about 620 horsepower at 6200 rpm and
600 lb/ft of torque at 4800 rpm. For more information on the LSX454 go to

The motor mount adapter plates used in this video place the engine one inch
too far forward. You need the adapter plates called the "One Inch Set-back"
plates. They'll place the engine and trans perfectly so that you can use
your original driveshaft without modification. They can be found on eBay
for $60 shipped.
