The 1986 Chevrolet Camaro Iroc Z Budget Build Part 1 – Detroit Muscle S3, E1


(ANNOUNCER)>>TODAY ON
DETROIT MUSCLE WE START A BRAND NEW BOTTOM DOLLAR
PROJECT THAT’LL TAKE A TIRED ’80’S ICON AND SHOW
YOU HOW TO GET SOME GO FAST OUT OF IT. (TOMMY)>>HEY FOLKS,
THANKS FOR JOINING US. NOW WE’VE JUST ABOUT GOT
OUR OLD MOPAR, PROJECT ULTRA VIOLET, ALL DIALED
IN AND READY TO TAKE IT ON ITS MAIDEN VOYAGE. SO WE’RE GONNA GO AHEAD AND
START US ANOTHER PROJECT. AND LUCKILY FOR US
SHE JUST SHOWED UP. [ SLIDING DOOR CLOSING ] (MARC)>>NOW WE DECIDED TO
TAKE A CRACK AT A BUDGET BUILD, AND WHEN IT COMES
TO BANG FOR YOUR BUCK IT DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER
THAN A PROJECT LIKE THIS, A 1986 IROC-Z. (TOMMY)>>THESE WERE THE
CREAM OF THE CROP WHEN IT CAME TO THIRD GEN CAMAROS. THEY WERE BASICALLY A
Z-28 WITH AN UPGRADED SUSPENSION SETUP,
UNIQUE BADGING… [ ENGINE STARTS ] (TOMMY)>>…AND A 190
HORSEPOWER TUNED PORT INJECTED 305 SMALL BLOCK.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THAT WAS QUITE A BIT OF
POWER FOR THE TIME. (MARC)>>AND WITH ORIGINAL
MUSCLE ERA CARS GETTING MORE RARE AND MORE PRICEY,
ONE OF THESE ’80’S ERA PONY CARS IS A GREAT
PLACE TO START IF YOU’RE WORKING WITH A BUDGET. THERE ARE A GAZILLION
PARTS AVAILABLE FOR THESE CARS, AND THEY ALREADY
HANDLED AND STOPPED WAY BETTER THAN ANYTHING MADE
IN THE ’60’S OR ’70’S. OH AND ANOTHER BONUS,
SHE’S GOT T-TOPS. (TOMMY)>>WE’RE GONNA
BE WORKING ON A $10,000 DOLLAR BUDGET, AND
THAT’S GONNA INCLUDE PURCHASING THE CAR. NOW WE SPENT $3,000 ON
IT, SO WE’RE GONNA HAVE TO STRETCH THAT OTHER
$7,000 AS FAR AS WE CAN. NOW WE ARE GONNA BE
REFURBISHING A FEW ITEMS, AND THEN WE’LL SIMPLY
REPLACE A FEW OTHERS. FIRST THING WE’RE
GONNA DO IS START IN ON THAT ENGINE. (MARC)>>YEAH AFTER
DIGGING AROUND A LITTLE BIT, WE FIGURED OUT THAT
THIS IS AN F-C-T CODED SMALL BLOCK, WHICH MEANS
AT SOME POINT IN THE THIS CAR’S LIFE SOMEONE,
PROBABLY A HIGH SCHOOL KIT, BLEW UP THE
ORIGINAL 305. NOW THIS BLOCK’S OUT OF
A 1984 CHEVY C-10 PICK UP TRUCK, BUT THE TOP END’S
ALL IROC, RIGHT DOWN TO THE TUNED PORT INJECTION. (TOMMY)>>FIRST ORDER OF
BUSINESS, WE’RE GONNA TAKE US A FIELD TRIP DOWN TO
ENGINE POWER AND SET THIS THING ON THE CHASSIS
DYNO SO THAT WE CAN SET US A BASELINE. YOU READY BIG GUY? (MARC)>>I THINK SO,
AND I BROUGHT ALONG SOME FASHION ACCESSORIES. SO MAYBE I’LL FIT IN A
LITTLE BETTER WITH THE CAR. (TOMMY)>>THIS BEING AN
IROC AND ALL, IT HONESTLY FEELS LIKE WE’RE LIVING
IN AN ’80’S ROCK VIDEO. SO WHY NOT EMBRACE
THAT CONCEPT. (MARC)>>YEAH, ESPECIALLY
WHEN IT COMES TO THE HAIR. [ ROCK MUSIC ] (TOMMY)>>IT’S RAINING
AWESOMENESS BACK THERE. [ ENGINE REVVING ] (TOMMY)>>FIRST
PULL 151 HORSEPOWER. (MARC)>>WHOO, HONESTLY
THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT FOR THE WEAR AND TEAR ON
THIS 305, AND SHE’S PRETTY CONSISTENT TOO. (TOMMY)>>SEVEN-TENTHS
MORE OF ONE HORSEPOWER. (MARC)>>ALRIGHT, I
THINK WE’VE GOT IT. (TOMMY)>>RIGHT
AT A WHOOPING 152. (MARC)>>152! (TOMMY)>>TELL
YOU WHAT CUZ! (MARC)>>WELL 152
HORSEPOWER, THAT’S NOT GONNA CUT IT. NOW AS ICONIC AS THAT
IROC-Z MAY BE, THE 305 UNDER THE HOOD’S NEVER
REALLY BEEN KNOWN TO BE A POWERHOUSE. NOW JUST TO CHECK WE
WENT AHEAD AND DID A COMPRESSION TEST
AND A COUPLE OF THE CYLINDERS ARE DOWN. SO INSTEAD OF JUST
THROWING OUR BUDGET AT THE 305, WHICH IS A LITTLE
SCARY, WE’RE GONNA JUST GO AHEAD AND PULL IT OUT. (TOMMY)>>IT’LL BE A LOT
EASIER TO WORK ONCE THE COOLANT SYSTEM IS OUT OF
THE WAY, BUT WE’RE GONNA KEEP IT TO BE
REUSED LATER ON. (MARC)>>WELL WE COULD
TEAR DOWN OUR 305 AND FRESHEN IT UP, WE COULD
EVEN THROW A STROKER KIT AT IT, BUT THAT WOULD
REQUIRE SOME MACHINING AND PURCHASE OF THE KIT. AND WE’D STILL ONLY BE AT
ABOUT 330 CUBIC INCHES. WHAT’S BETTER THAN
THAT, 350 CUBIC INCHES. WE GOT THIS SHORT BLOCK
CHEVY RIGHT HERE, AND IT IS A BIT USED BUT WE’RE
ALREADY GONNA BE ABOUT 45 CUBIC INCHES AHEAD. NOW A LOT OF YOU GEARHEADS
AT HOME MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS LAYING
AROUND OR YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES, LIKE WE DO. WE WENT DOWN TO ENGINE
POWER AND PICKED THIS UP. THIS IS FROM AN OLD
PROJECT OF THEIRS, AND IT’S GOT SOME MILES ON IT
BUT THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF THING YOU
CAN FIND ONLINE FOR ABOUT $500 DOLLARS. SO JUST TO BE FAIR, WE’RE
GONNA THROW $500 DOLLARS ON OUR BUDGET AND
ROLL WITH THIS. THE FIRST THING WE’LL DO
IS GET THE TIMING COVER OUT OF THE WAY TO
ALLOW ACCESS TO THE TIMING SET AND CAM. IT LOOKS LIKE THE ENGINE
POWER GUYS PUT A NICE DOUBLE ROLLER ON HERE BUT
IT STILL NEEDS TO GO SO THAT WE CAN
GET TO THE CAM. (TOMMY)>>WE’RE NOT SURE
WHAT KIND OF GRIND THIS CAM HAS, WHICH IS THE CASE
A LOT OF YOU WOULD RUN INTO WHENEVER YOU
PICK UP A USED BLOCK. SO WE’LL JUST GO
AHEAD AND PULL IT. A BOLT PLACED INTO THE END
OF THE CRANKSHAFT MAKES IT A LOT EASIER FOR
OUR PULLER TO GET THIS GEAR OFF. IT’S A NICE PART BUT WE
WANT TO MAKE SURE THE ONE THAT WE USE MATCHES
THE PIECES WE’RE GOING TO INSTALL. (MARC)>>SOME SCOTT SHOP
TOWELS WILL BE A BIG HELP IN KEEPING ANY DEBRIS
OUT OF THE INSIDE OF OUR BLOCK, SINCE THE NEXT
STEP IS GOING TO INVOLVE CLEANING IT UP. WE’VE GOT TO SCRAPE OFF
SOME OLD SILICONE AND GASKETS BECAUSE YOU HAVE
TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR NEW ONES WILL GET A GOOD SEAL,
AS WELL AS ALLOWING THE PARTS TO SEAT PROPERLY. [ FILE SCRAPPING ] [ COMPRESSED AIR BLOWING ] (ANNOUNCER)>>AFTER THE
BREAK FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF GOODIES ARE GONNA
PUT SOME PEP IN THE STEP OF OUR IROC! (TOMMY)>>ALRIGHT GUYS,
WE’VE GOT OUR ENGINE ALL CLEANED UP AND WE’RE
READY TO START BOLTING ON OUR GO FAST GOODIES. NOW WE’VE GOT US A TOP END
KIT FROM TRICK FLOW THAT’S GONNA GIVE THAT F-BODY
SOME GIDDY UP AND GO! OUR KIT INCLUDES A SET
OF ONE POINT FIVE RATIO ALUMINUM ROLLER ROCKERS,
A BILLET TIMING CHAIN, ALL THE LIFTERS WE’RE GONNA
NEED, AND A BUMP STICK THAT’S GONNA GIVE US
SOME PERFORMANCE AND THAT SWEET SOUND. THESE HEADS ARE THE BEST
PART OF OUR UPGRADE. IT’S A SET OF ALUMINUM
TRICK FLOW 195’S. THEY HAVE THE 62cc
CHAMBER, THE 202 AND 160 VALVES, AND THEY’RE REALLY
GONNA COMPLIMENT THAT LITTLE SMALL BLOCK CHEVY. TO TOP IT ALL OFF THIS
STREET BURNER ALUMINUM DUAL PLANE INTAKE WITH
THAT OPEN AIR DESIGN THAT’S GONNA HELP
KEEP YOUR FUEL CHARGE A LITTLE COOLER. (MARC)>>WHEN YOU’RE
INSTALLING A SET OF HEADS, IT’S OF UPMOST IMPORTANCE
TO TORQUE THE HEAD BOLTS TO THE PROPER POUNDAGE, AS
WELL AS FOLLOW THE TORQUE SEQUENCE THAT THE
MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS. THIS IS THE SEQUENCE
FOR THESE HEADS. (TOMMY)>>THE CAM CAME
WITH A PACKET OF ASSEMBLY LUBE, BUT IF YOUR CAM
DOESN’T YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET
YOUR HANDS ON SOME. IT STAYS ON THE PARTS FOR
THOSE FIRST FEW CRITICAL MOMENTS WHEN YOUR ENGINE
IS INITIALLY FIRED. ONE GOOD WAY TO DO IT
WITHOUT MESS IS TO LUBE THE LOBES AND BEARINGS AS
IT GOES INTO THE ENGINE. JUST BE SURE THAT YOU
DON’T USE SO MUCH OF IT THAT YOU DON’T
HAVE ANY LEFT FOR THE LAST FEW INCHES. (MARC)>>NOW WE CAN
INSTALL THE CRANK GEAR THAT CAME WITH OUR
TRICK FLOW TIMING SET. USING A BRASS DRIFT ON
ALTERNATING SIDES IS A GOOD WAY TO PREVENT
DAMAGING IT. NOW FOR THE CAM
GEAR, WHICH IS A LITTLE MORE COMPLEX. NOW WHEN WE’RE INSTALLING
A TIMING SET ON A SMALL BLOCK CHEVY LIKE THIS, WE
LIKE TO POINT THE TIMING MARKS AT EACH OTHER, WHICH
IS THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE NOT GONNA GET
THE CHAIN OFF BY A TOOTH. BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER
WHEN YOU DO THIS, EVEN THOUGH THE NUMBER ONE
CYLINDER IS AT THE TOP, IT’S AT THE TOP OF THE
EXHAUST STROKE AND NOT AT THE TOP OF THE
COMPRESSION STROKE. SO ONCE WE GET THE TIMING
CHAIN ON, WE’RE GONNA TURN THE CRANK SHAFT OVER ONE
FULL REVOLUTION TO BRING THIS TIMING MARK TO
THE TOP AND GET US AT TRUE TOP DEAD CENTER. (TOMMY)>>LIKE HE SAID,
YOU’VE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE INDICATORS
ARE DEAD ON ONCE THE CHAIN IS INSTALLED. THEN WE CAN INSTALL
THE BUTTON AND IT GETS CINCHED DOWN. THE BUTTON ISN’T MANDATORY
BUT IT HELPS TO KEEP THE CAM WHERE IT’S SUPPOSED TO
BE, AND THESE TABS KEEP IT ALL LOCKED IN PLACE. NOW IT CAN BE SPUN TO TRUE
TOP DEAD CENTER WITH THE TIMING MARK POINTING
STRAIGHT UP. (MARC)>>WE CAN GET THE
GASKET IN PLACE AND THEN INSTALL OUR SHINY NEW
CHROME TIMING COVER. IF YOU USE A POWER TOOL
LIKE THIS TO RUN THE BOLTS IN BE SURE TO LEAVE THEM
A COUPLE OF TURNS OUT SO THAT YOU CAN TORQUE THEM
TO THE PROPER AMOUNT. WHILE WE’VE BEEN
INSTALLING OUR CAM SHAFT AND TIMING SET, OUR
LIFTERS HERE HAVE BEEN SOAKING IN SOME
CONVENTIONAL 30 WEIGHT OIL. THE REASON WE DO THIS IS
BECAUSE THESE HYDRAULIC LIFTERS NEED TO BE
PRE-SOAKED SO THEY’RE PRIMED WHEN WE GET
THEM IN THE ENGINE. AH! (TOMMY)>>THE HEADS COME
WITH A-R-P STUDS AND WE’LL USE SOME A-R-P FASTENER
LUBRICANT ON THE THREADS AS WELL AS SOME ROYAL
PURPLE ASSEMBLY LUBE ON THE PUSH RODS
AND VALVE STEMS. THEN THE ROCKERS CAN
BE LAID INTO PLACE. WE’LL TIGHTEN THE
NUTS DOWN UNTIL WE HIT RESISTANCE. (MARC)>>NOW WE’RE
GETTING READY TO ADJUST OUR ROCKER ARMS. NOW SINCE THESE ARE
HYDRAULIC LIFTERS WE HAVE TO ADJUST THESE
TO ZERO LASH. WHICH MEANS THERE’S GONNA
BE NO SPACE, NO PLAY IN BETWEEN THE ROCKER
AND THE VALVE STEM. THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS
IS WHEN THE EXHAUST VALVE BEGINS TO OPEN, WE ADJUST
THE INTAKE SIDE, AND THEN WHEN THE INTAKE SIDE
BEGINS TO CLOSE THAT’S WHEN YOU ADJUST
THE EXHAUST SIDE. OKAY FIRST THE INTAKE. TURN IT UNTIL YOU BEGIN
TO FEEL RESISTANCE, THEN GRAB YOUR WRENCH. WE’LL TAKE IT DOWN A HALF
TURN, THEN JUST A LITTLE FARTHER WITH THE SET
SCREW TO KEEP IT IN PLACE. THEN WE NEED TO SPIN
THE ENGINE UNTIL THE INTAKE STARTS TO CLOSE. THEN WE’LL JUMP ON THE
EXHAUST SIDE ROCKER. IT’S THE SAME
PROCEDURE ON ALL THE REST OF THE ROCKERS. (ANNOUNCER)>>STICK AROUND
AND UNCOVER OUR BUDGET HORSEPOWER SECRET! (MARC)>>HEY GUYS, WHILE
YOU WERE GONE WE WENT AHEAD AND INSTALLED SOME
NEW VALVE COVERS, NEW WATER PUMP, REINSTALLED
THE BALANCER AND THE OIL PAN, AND SWITCHED OVER TO
THIS ACCEL VACUUM ADVANCE H-E-I DISTRIBUTOR THAT WE
GOT FROM SUMMIT RACING. THE REASON WE HAD TO DO
THAT IS BECAUSE WHEN WE GOT RID OF OUR E-F-I
SYSTEM WE GOT RID OF THE DISTRIBUTOR THAT WAS
ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED AND SWITCHED OVER TO
THIS VACUUM ADVANCE. NOW IF YOU GUYS REMEMBER
WE ROTATED THE CRANK SHAFT OVER ONE FULL REVOLUTION
BRINGING US UP TO TRUE TOP DEAD CENTER. WE HAVE THE ROTOR POINTED
AT CYLINDER NUMBER ONE, MADE A MARK RIGHT HERE. WE’RE GONNA LINE IT UP
AND THAT’S WHERE WE’LL PUT THE NUMBER ONE WIRE. (TOMMY)>>ONE GREAT THING
ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR ENGINE SWAP IS THAT SINCE
IT’S JUST ANOTHER SMALL BLOCK CHEVY, IT WILL
PLUG RIGHT INTO THE HOLE WITHOUT ANY
MODIFICATION TO THE MOUNTS OR TRANSMISSION. WE HAD TO PULL THE VALVE
COVERS TO KEEP THEM FROM GETTING SCARRED UP. BUT IF THAT’S THE WORST
THING WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH, WE’RE IN
PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. WHILE YOU GUYS WASN’T
LOOKING WE WENT AHEAD AND BUTTONED UP THE BELT
DRIVES AND THE COOLING SYSTEM ON OUR IROC, AND
NOW WE’RE GONNA MOVE ON TO THE FUEL SYSTEM. NOW ORIGINALLY THIS CAR
CAME WITH FUEL INJECTION BUT NOW IT’S GONNA BE
RUNNING A 600 HOLLEY. ONE OF THE ISSUES WITH
CONVERTING IT OVER TO THE CARBURETOR
IS THE FUEL SUPPLY. THE PUMP THAT’S
IN THIS CAR MAKES TOO MUCH PRESSURE. SO WE’LL JUST SIMPLY DIAL
IT BACK USING A REGULATOR. (MARC)>>BUT BEFORE WE
PUT THE CARB ON WE’VE GOT SOMETHING EXTRA JUICY
TO BOLT ON FIRST. NOW THAT EXTRA JOLT WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT IS GONNA COME FROM THIS SNIPER
NITROUS KIT FROM N-O-S. IT’S GONNA ADD UP TO 150
EXTRA HORSEPOWER ON TOP OF WHAT OUR 350’S GONNA
PRODUCE, AND THAT’S GOOD FOR US BECAUSE WE’RE ON A
BUDGET, AND WHEN IT COMES TO POWER ADDERS, YOU’RE
NOT GONNA FIND MUCH BETTER BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
THANK A NITROUS KIT. NOW THIS IS A PLATE STYLE
SYSTEM, WHICH UTILIZES THIS INJECTOR PLATE AND IT
BOLTS BETWEEN THE CARB AND THE INTAKE, AND IT
ALSO COMES WITH ALL THE PLUMBING TO HOOK IT UP. THESE JETS THAT COME WITH
THE KIT WILL GIVE US AN EXTRA 100, 125, OR 150
HORSEPOWER DEPENDING ON WHICH PAIR WE USE. AND OF COURSE IT COMES
WITH ALL THE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS TO
ARM THE SYSTEM. NOW WE WENT AHEAD AND
ASSEMBLED OUR PLATE WITH THE SOLENOIDS. AND THEN WE PUT THE JETS
IN THERE FOR THE 100 SHOT BECAUSE WE WANTED TO BE
A LITTLE CONSERVATIVE, AT LEAST FOR NOW. I’M GONNA MAKE SURE THIS
PLATE GOES WITH N-O-S SIDE POINTING UP, AND WE CAN
PUT OUR GASKET ON FOR THE CARB, DROP ON OUR HOLLEY
CARB, AND LOCK IT DOWN. WE’LL USE THESE ADAPTERS
ON THE STOCK FUEL LINES AND MOUNT OUR REGULATOR
ON THE WHEEL WELL. [ DRILL SPINNING ] (MARC)>>WE MADE A COUPLE
OF HOSES THAT WILL TIE THE FEED AND RETURN LINES TO IT. SO WE’LL PLUG
THOSE IN AS WELL. BE SURE TO USE THE PROPER
ANODIZED LINE WRENCH IF YOU’RE UTILIZING
A-N FITTINGS. THEN WE CAN TIE IN THE
LINES TO THE SOLENOID AND THE CARB BECAUSE IT’S
A WET NITROUS SYSTEM, MEANING THAT IT SPRAYS
MORE GAS AS WELL AS THE NITROUS OXIDE. WE’LL THEN HOOK UP OUR
NITROUS LINE AND GET OUR BOTTLE STOWED IN
THE BACK OF THE CAR. (TOMMY)>>NOW WE’RE
GETTING TO THE END OF THE ROAD WHEN IT COMES
TO OUR INSTALL HERE. THE NEXT THING
WE’RE GONNA DO IS FINISH UP THE WIRING. THE FIRST THING THAT YOU
WOULD NORMALLY DO IS MOUNT YOU A BIG GNARLY
SWITCH INSIDE THE COCKPIT SOMEWHERE. THAN THING WILL
ENERGIZED THE SYSTEM. AND THEN THE NEXT THING
YOU WOULD WANT TO DO IS WIRE UP THIS MICRO SWITCH. WHAT IT DOES, IT ACTUALLY
ENERGIZES THOSE SOLENOIDS AND MAKES EVERYTHING
GET HAPPY. THIS MICRO SWITCH IS
ACTUALLY PRETTY SIMPLE. WHEN THE THROTTLE GETS
PUNCHED ALL THE WAY UP IT PUSHES ON THE SWITCH AND
CLOSES THE CIRCUIT, WHICH THEN SPRAYS OUR
GO-GO JUICE. (ANNOUNCER)>>UP
NEXT IT’S DYNO TIME! [ ENGINE REVVING ] (TOMMY)>>WE’VE GOT OUR
350 PLUGGED INTO OUR LITTLE YELLOW IROC AND
SHE’S READY TO GO BACK ON THE OLD DYNO DOWN
IN ENGINE POWER. (MARC)>>YOU
READY TO DO THIS? (TOMMY)>>YEAH I’M
OUT OF THE WAY. (MARC)>>ALRIGHT, YOU
MIGHT WANT TO STAND BACK. [ ENGINE REVVING ] (TOMMY)>>227. (MARC)>>SAY THAT AGAIN. (TOMMY)>>227. (MARC)>>227? (TOMMY)>>227, YEAH OUR
FIRST PULL, OUR POWER NUMBER WASN’T THAT
IMPRESSIVE BUT AFTER OUR UPGRADES
DRASTIC IMPROVEMENT. (MARC)>>WE’RE NOT
TRYING TO LAY DOWN EARTH SHATTERING NUMBERS WITH
THIS BUDGET SMALL BLOCK, BUT WE’RE ALREADY QUITE
A BIT AHEAD OF WHERE WE STARTED, AND SHE’S
LOOKING REALLY CONSISTENT WITH THE PULLS. IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE
ABOUT 75 HORSEPOWER. (TOMMY)>>ALRIGHT GUYS,
WE’RE GONNA PULL A LITTLE BIT OF TIMING OUT OF THIS
THING, AND PRETTY MUCH A RULE OF THUMB IS TWO
DEGREES PER 50 SHOT. AND THE REASON YOU’D WANT
TO DO THAT IS BECAUSE PULLING THE TIMING OUT OF
IT, IT REDUCES THE CHANCES OF DETONATION BECAUSE
WHENEVER YOU SPRAY IN THAT NITROUS, THIS INCREASES
THE CYLINDER PRESSURE. ANOTHER THING THAT YOU’D
WANT TO DO IS PUT IN A COOLER SET OF PLUG, AND WE
WENT AHEAD AND DONE THAT WHENEVER WE WERE
DOING THE INSTALL. (MARC)>>WITH OUR 100 SHOT
OF NITROUS WE’RE PULLING FOUR DEGREES OF BASE
TIMING OUT, PUTTING IT RIGHT AT FOUR DEGREES. LITTLE BIT, LITTLE
BIT, RIGHT THERE. ALRIGHT, HERE WE GO! (TOMMY)>>LET ME
STEP OUT OF THE WAY. UH OH! (MARC)>>IT DIDN’T
LIKE THAT DID IT. (TOMMY)>>I’LL BET IT
AIN’T GOT NO GAS IN IT! [ ENGINE REVVING ] (TOMMY)>>ONCE WE MANAGED
TO FIND A CAN OF GAS, IT’S TIME FOR A MOTOR ONLY RUN
WITH THAT TIMING PULLED OUT JUST TO MAKE SURE
IT STILL LIKES IT. [ ENGINE REVVING ] (MARC)>>220, YEAH THAT’S
WHAT IT MADE BEFORE. ALRIGHT, SO WE’RE
ALL FINISHED WITH OUR ALL MOTOR RUNS. SO WE’RE GONNA GO AHEAD
AND ARM THE SYSTEM HERE, TRY THE NITROUS. [ ENGINE REVVING ] (MARC)>>SHE PULLS A LOT
HARDER WITH THE SPRAY, PUTTING IT RIGHT AT
294 HORSEPOWER, AND 351 FOOT POUNDS OF TORQUE. OKAY WELL WE MANAGED TO
PUT A LOT MORE PEP IN THE STEP OF THIS IROC,
AND WE’RE GONNA STAY CONSERVATIVE ON THINGS
LIKE THE TUNE, THE TIMING, AND THE NITROUS BECAUSE
THIS IS A BUDGET BUILD AND WE DON’T WANT TO FIND
THE NEXT WEAKEST LINK. (TOMMY)>>FURTHER DOWN
THE ROAD YOU NEVER KNOW. WE MAY END UP THROWING
THE SPURS TO HER JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE. BUT HEY, EVEN ERRING ON
THE SIDE OF CAUTION WE STILL MANAGED TO
DOUBLE THE POWER THAT WE STARTED WITH. AND WITH ABOUT $3,500
BUCKS MORE TO SPEND THERE’S STILL A LOT
MORE ROOM TO MAKE ON THE IMPROVEMENTS OF THE
SUSPENSION AND THE INTERIOR.
