Just a pinned comment to say Thanks for watching, there's one more video in the works to finish off this mad car (hello driving and skids) and then we've got something special for you.. Have an awesome week!

@Adi I understand you but I have to disagree and only because tv ruins car shows. I honestly feel these guy’s are better off where they’re at. Tv makes to much drama for views for no reason. I hope marty and moog keep growing and have massive success in there life but tv isn’t in my opinion the way they should go. I hope you understand and i hope I didn’t come off as rude or anything much love.✌🏼

Thank you so much for making these videos. I get so much satisfaction and enjoyment out of these. It truly feels like really enjoyable relaxing experience to watch you build and modify cars. Even now I feel already more relaxed and have had so much enjoyment and satisfaction out of your video and I'm only half way through it. The production quality is so superb in your videos and the music is just so absolutely awesome. It feels like floating in a pool of enjoyment because you do things so properly. It gives me big satisfaction. Thank you and keep up the good work. :D

Gents, don’t know if you’ve sorted the intake air temps yet, but I have been through something similar. Highly recommended getting your headers ceramic coated to drop engine temps, and building some ducting to the filter to draw in cooler air. I dropped my IAT by about 60 degrees Fahrenheit when I moved my filter out of the bay.

When you guys were doing the brake upgrades did you change the proportioning? The primary reason I ask is in the vw world without mods to the proportioning you'll experience rear lock up with big brakes

Cut some louvers in the hood to vent heat and run a hose to the front for a true "cold air intake". I love those older Beemers, and I love sleepers. Best of both worlds!

Can your stock brake master support 6 piston calipers? I would think you need to move more fluid.

Question for folks who do dyno stuff: the large fan in front of the car is obviously there to mimic the airflow you get from driving, so the car doesn't overheat. Does the fan speed ramp up to match the simulated speed of the car during the run? Does the environmental air flow rate have a big impact on the fuel/air mix, or is the ECU automatically compensating for that using ambient air pressure sensing? I know the ambient air pressure is a factor for some ECU stuff (VW infamously exploited this to calculate elevation via barometric pressure so they could switch profiles when the cars were at known emissions testing facilities) but I'm unsure if it comes into play with compensating for environmental air flow.

At 4:10 you are oiling the rocker arm seats and getting oil into the bolt holes the rockers are secured by. This is bad form as any oil in a dead ending bolt hole can prevent the bolt from fully engaging into the hole as the oil is trapped and can hydraulically prevent the bolt from fully tightening. the bolt will "appear" to tighten as per spec, but it can still be loose on the item it is meant to secure. Good practice is to use shop air to blow out each bolt hole just before inserting the bolts.

These guys take heads off, replace lifters, degree the cam... I swapped the cam in my 4.8 in a parking lot, reused all gaskets, didn't use dowels to hold lifters up. I just changed springs and pushrods and sent it lol

Hay what ever happen to turbo yoda..? Stay cool buds..

For future reference on ls engines, soak the lifters in a cup of oil overnight to prevent premature lifter failure from them compressing dry upon initial start up ✌

That really is just an amazing car; an amazing build. I was so surprised by the change in power just by getting the filter out of the way. I would be very curious to see if you leave it as is or come up with a fabrication to isolate the intake to pull cooler air.
Tom_K Månad sedan
Love it guys, as per 👌🏼 I’m gonna have to google putting grease on the head bolts, I guess there’s an appropriate torque spec when lubed? Same for the rocker bolts; I always thought threads shouldn’t have lube if there’s a torque spec, but every day’s a school day 👍🏼 I feel like I’m allowed to ask geeky torque spec questions after the video on cam specs and timing 🤓
otto leeverink
otto leeverink Månad sedan
its better to use blue locktite that way you dont need a new crankshaft! (just like you do with the amount of red moog is using)
Do not lubricate bolts that need to be torqued down, you generate hydraulic pressure, inaccurate torque readings and you risk cracking a block.

Never put liquid thread lock onto the flywheel bolts. Always dab in the holes, because it squeezes down the threads and traps between the flywheel or bolt head, making the flywheel not run true or not tightening metal to metal on the bolt heads.

The reason for the torque and then the angle on the head bolts is because they are stretch bolts which means the threads distribute the load better.

Nice build guys but you really got the disks mounted at the wrong side. The way you did it is nice when you are heating up your brakes so much when you are racing so your pads don't get "glace" all the time so you lose brake power, they simply grind off the top layer much faster. For "normal" road usage you better do it the other way around because: 1. Your pads last much longer because they grind less with the groves but more then enough. 2 When its rainy your groves fill up with water (while hitting the brakes) because of the angle and water stalls around inside of the caliper because it throws water in instead of out of the disk. Just a tip from someone who is picky on that kind of stuff ;) Have fun with the car!

400 HP, 4:11 gears and a manual gear box is potent combo even in a car much heavier than this one. Add in how light it is, how well it handles and the quality tires we have now and that will be one fun car to drive. There are not too many 60's and 70's muscle cars that would give it much of a challenge. Maybe something at the drag strip with a lot more power and traction but certainly nothing you could daily drive on the street. Here in the US a cheaper option to do this to probably would be an 80's mustang. You can do a lot with those little things.

I love how they're in a shop with extremely capable mechanics that could easily do this job start to end themselves. Yet, Marty and Moog are in there learning about what they can't do and getting hands on doing everything they do know. That's true passion. A car is just more fun when you build it yourself.
