First Start 5.3L Powered 1955 Chevy 210 Two Door
First official start up of my 55' Chevy now that the motor is mostly
complete. The engine is a 5.3L LM7, with LS1 intake manifold, modified
stock truck manifolds, dual 2 1/4 Exhaust going into Thush mufflers. I didn't have
a MAF sensor hooked up so when I first started it, the idle was jumping
around a bit. Last clip is after I added dual tailpipes out under the rear
5.3 With Z06 cam
This is the first start of the 5.3 going into a 78 trans am. extreme!!

The first installment of the Tahoe engine video, you might remember this
one from the leak down video. In part 2 I want to cover the highlights of
the swap and I would like the final video to cover the removal of the bad
piston to have a look at what happened to the original engine.

Piston Slap GM style 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 5.3 vortec
Comments disabled due to the YouTards arguing back and forth about possible
fixes, Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge, etc.
PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION - more info has been added.
This is my 2005 Silverado 5.3 B motor with 81K miles doing the GM slap.
Yes... this is a gasoline motor. Cold start, has been sitting ~12 hours,
went down into the mid-20's overnight, now about 30F. I move the camera
around alot so you can hear exactly what is going on. Can you see the rear
main seal leak from the passenger side?? This is my third GM truck and will
likely be my last. Background: Purchased new, Mobil 1 every 5K since 1K.
Started making some noise around 60K in 2009, noise would go away after
about 30 seconds. It's getting progressively worse and now lasts for
upwards of 2 minutes (as seen in the video). Blackstone Labs oil report
shows elevated iron levels and pretty much confirms the slap issue. In the
video I start the truck and immediately shift in to reverse (with the
parking brake on) because the noise is alot more obvious under a little
load. This truck has seen only light towing/hauling and has no hardware
mods. I use a Predator tuner in the 87-octane mode with no timing/injection
changes just to correct the lousy GM throttle response. Questions/comments
*** UPDATE ***
So, after sweating over the engine noise for a couple years or so my
transmission blew with 84,400 miles. Figures. A GM-rebuilt 4L60E has been
installed and I'm going to try to make 150K on this thing.
*** MORE info
I started having the oil tests performed very early as I initially intended
to keep this truck for a very long time. I would have the oil tested every
second or third oil change. Here are the iron numbers, PPM, for all 7 tests
that I have had done. The Universal Average for iron is 19:
MILES Iron (PPM)
*** Last update - The crate transmission started acting up under warranty,
but the dealer couldn't find any problems. I traded this truck with 110K
and it was almost immediately sold to a new owner. Good luck.
