Quick Tech: Box Your Arms V8TV

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - So you want the strength of boxed and reinforced suspension parts but don't have the reinforced wallet to make it happen with trick new parts? Or maybe your particular ride does not have an aftermarket beefed-up control arm available. Here's the solution: Box up your stock control arms! Here, we sourced a pair of original GM lower control arms from our '65 Chevelle project. That car got new stuff, so we grabbed the extras, which happen to fit our 1968 Buick Riviera project. Which, by the way, is one of those cars that has very little in the aftermarket as far as parts are concerned, so we were happy to find that we could make Chevelle parts fit. Follow along as we media blast, then weld up our control arms for extra-strength. And although we didn't show it, they'll get new bushings someday as well.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - This '69 Camaro convertible looks unassuming enough, but don't let it fool you. Underneath that shiny blue paint hides all the latest pro-touring tricks, from the Detroit Speed & Engineering subframe to the GM LS7 V8 engine. Owner Matt Gober tells us that G-Force Design Concepts built this car with the goal of blending a stock appearance with killer street and track performance, and it looks like they've succeeded.

1965 Chevelle Engine Break-In
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We've been waiting for the opportunity to break-in our new Comp Cam and Holley / Weiand upper engine parts we installed on our 1965 Chevelle's 350, and that day finally arrived. To make it go smoothly, we filled the oilpan with Royal Purple Break-In Oil to ensure that the Comp flat-tapped camshaft would break in properly and safely. We then installed the engine and driveline onto the Chevelle's chassis and wired it up so we could use the chassis as a test stand to break in the engine. Here's the video of what happened!





Nelson Racing Engines SEMA 2008 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Nelson Racing Engines has been building high-level turbo engines for over a decade, and Tom Nelson and crew are not slowing down any time soon. Tom took a few minutes at the 2008 SEMA show to bring us up to speed on their new intake manifolds and their problem-solving asymmetric turbo housings. The turbo housings are one of those common sense ideas that will really simplify installation of twin turbo systems.





1966 GTO: First Drive! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The 1966 GTO was finally ready to hit the road. We bled the Wilwood brakes, had all the fluids topped off, the ride height set, and it was time to take to the streets. Our goal was to build a car that handled flat in the corners, made lots of power, and was comfortable to drive, and the '66 GTO scored in all departments. Check it out!
