@BaMenace understandable
BaMenace Månad sedan
@The Ranch of course i did. Just didn't notice the year at the top of the post... mistaking it for last year. they were waiting on a diff to be shipped over 6 months ago... and throughout the past year there has been Gemini Easter eggs hidden in plain sight in some videos... eg: the GEMINI manual always left out on the bench etc etc. When they mentioned they were doing rust repair on black chops.. who could say whether they did or did not send the GEMINI away with black chops at the same time to fix the rust on her?.. because that's all that was needed to start the best project car on SVdown.. I'm over it now anyways... Marty's too chicken shit to drop an LS in or even a R34

@BaMenace Yes, did you read through the whole article? It was well explained why it's going to take a long time to finish the project. Looking for gemini parts alone is bound to make the build take ages.

@The Ranch over a year ago he got the car.

@BaMenace It wasn’t even a month ago when that article was uploaded, how fast do you think everything is going to happen?

Heads and Cams on an LS can be as drastic as forced induction on many many other vehicles. Course its not just LS engines, its pretty much all Cam in Block V8s. Ok fine, V8s in general. Because powah!!

And people wonder why a timing chain/belt replacement costs so much. This is why! My Honda Integra B18C somehow came out of time and wouldn't even start. We did a timing belt job. Honda was good about marketing the cam gears 12 o'clock position as well as 9 and 3 o'clock positions to make sure the cams are perfect. Then just adjust the crank so the notch is lined up with the notch on the engine block and tighten her up!

going off the VCM spec sheet the lobe seperation is 113 degrees, not 110. 110 degrees on a street car would be suuuuper grumpy down low and a nightmare in carparks. for me 112 is the sweet spot.

Good fun episode. Interesting watching them talking about machining cam lobes. Anyone interested in seeing a bit more about it should check out a video on Clay Millican's channel where he visits Comp Cams (svdown.info/post/video/iHqHkNR_hamBzqs.html). Really interesting what they share there.

You need to watch Richard Holdner’s SVdown channel. I’m also surprised you didn’t use a Sloppy Stage 2 cam (SS2). HP increase through the entire poser band. No down low loss like other ls cams

You guys are simply amazing. I’ve been watching your videos since the beginning with shitty pixel videos and all . I opened my workshop in 2000. And from the beginning I learned so much from you guys. Like the central locking installs that you did . I literally learned from you guys . And every video since. My business grew and my knowledge grew time and time again. I can proudly say that I have one of the biggest auto repair workshops in madeira island Portugal besides the manufacture workshops . And it all started with me with zero car info and my brother in law a very basic mechanic. As the years passed we have qualified staff and are second to none on our island. And it all started with a couple of videos on something new (at the time ) called SVdown . I feel like I owe you guys royalty’s. And I piss myself laughing every time you say IN THE BIN !!!!! My 5 year old son says it all the time . Simply amazing. I think that you guys have know idea how big you are and the massive influence you have . (If you guys could reply to my comment I will make a massive poster and put it in my workshop)

Guys, I know years and years ago you guys mythbusted performance chips. I would love to see your thoughts on Racechip products and do some real tests with dyno runs and timed tests to really show if it works. I see a lot of people buying them and am curious myself, if they did work being able to adjust the tune dependent on what I want from the car would be great but if it doesn't work that's fairly useless.

Hey, a bit of a random question, but im trying to find this one song featured on this channel, I think it was during the Toyota Sera Episodes. To explain the song, it sounded like the previous intro that had the robotic voice say "mighty car mods", the song features a female singer along with gutars.

As a general rule, simplicity increases reliability. The less parts there are, the less parts there are to fail. This is why they still use single cams and pushrods. There is plenty of power to be made with that engine. ;)

For once, I watch an MCM video and say "yeah I'm never going to try this mod on my own.." Most of the time they make things look easy enough and give explanations clear enough to make me feel a false sense of confidence in my own wrenching skill.. But not timing a new cam lol. Tony is a legend!

Why do Australians sound like they are asking and question or not sure about what they are saying when finishing a sentence? No hate just always wondered if there is a reason behind it.

For anyone interested in further number nerding, the stock LS3 is 204deg inlet/211 exhaust @50thou on a 117 degree lobe separation, with about .550 of valve lift. Not only does the VCM in this setup have 20ish degrees more of open duration there’s another 50thou of lift or a more open valve also. So much more breathing room. The separation angle makes a big difference in low end drivability too, I’ve got a slightly bigger cam but more separation angle so less overlap, there’s less chop but it’s more tame to drive, an important factor if you daily the vehicle and want to avoid cam lump in low speed driving.

Amazing content, but why would you deck perfectly functioning heads without checking also the engine side of that same interface?
John Josephson
John Josephson Månad sedan
Is it not likely that Tony checked the block deck? I think generally it's just a good straight edge and whatever spec feeler gauge to give you a good idea.
