  • All right.

  • What's up, guys?

  • You see center?

  • You guys said you wanted Mork are content, and I'm gonna bring you some car stuff that you can see.

  • We've got a really beautiful one in the background.

  • We talk about that in a second.

  • It has been more than a year since I showed you guys.

  • My zeal.

  • 11 Ellie.

  • And that was when it was still 100% bone stock.

  • Well, actually, no.

  • I take that back.

  • It had a road of that bin take, but that's still pretty much stuck.

  • And I did some track stuff with it.

  • But since then, and I always said I was gonna make a video about the car because of all the modern stuff we did to it, I just never did.

  • So It's been almost a year and 1/2 since I've had this car.

  • We'll talk about it because today we're over here at Red Barn Racing.

  • We got my friends behind us here in his beautiful 68 Camaro drag car.

  • We're just getting a checkup because it's been about 10,000 miles since we will.

  • I say we, since he ripped the engine apart, did some mods to Cam.

  • All that sort of stuff.

  • Do some checks on valve.

  • Not bad springs.

  • What?

  • Rocker bolts and all that crap.

  • Not pretend like I know what I'm talking about here to make sure all that stuff within spec.

  • And then we'll talk about the mods and what this card does and why I did what I did.

  • So yeah, Let's get to it, you guys, I got new merge.

  • It's available now.

  • Probably dot com slash tasty sense.

  • Guys slip up hoodies.

  • We got tri blend.

  • We got a new logo.

  • I digress.

  • Since 2012 it's a rest.

  • A little.

  • He has been asking for that anyway.

  • Wait.

  • What kinds of stuff?

  • Zipper?

  • Putties, Beanies, polos Don't take my word for it is.

  • Obviously I can't do this ad.

  • So just looking description below when you guys find the link.

  • Thanks.

  • All right.

  • So this is my 2018 zeal.

  • 11 Ellie, if you're not familiar with world, I mean zeal.

  • Woman is just the trim package between it's got the lt for supercharged 6.2 liter V eight.

  • The one Ellie is a suspension slash track package that has to do with the D S S B dynamic school valve dampers for multi Matic.

  • It's got the additional arrow in the front.

  • It's got arrow in the back.

  • Obviously got a wire wheels, white offender on the front, not so much of the fenders wider, but the mounts for it are so it gives us an extra inch of clearance on either side.

  • I'm obviously running a different wheel factory.

  • These air h R E R C 10 fours, which is a lightweight forest racing wheel.

  • So I'm running.

  • Those obviously retires these air we're getting kind of cycled out, but these are toyour triple eight hours.

  • My factory wheels actually have a set of Michelin pilots Porkchop twos, which I'm not a fan of, To be honest, at least on the street.

  • Yeah, Rosie, that were kind of wondering, too.

  • Yes, it is Emmanuel, because you could see right there, because when about this car it was not available in automatic, nor would I have gotten one anyway, because I want this real driving experience of manual with this car.

  • But as of today, you can get a one early with a manual or automatic, which I kind of feel isn't atrocity.

  • I think Mike might agree with that sentiment that automatic Finally, it's just kind of weird.

  • It's kind of weird, especially for a road race car.

  • So anyway, when it comes to this car, you can see I've still got the factory blower.

  • It's not ported.

  • It's got the factory sized around a body but poured it throughout the body for airflow, not for volume.

  • We're opening up that in light of the firefly on there, we do have American racing one and 7/8 a long tube headers which are not ceramic coating.

  • We're probably gonna do that next to just kind of sucks.

  • And you didn't do it at the time of the bill because now you take him out.

  • Obviously, Rudo Fab cold air intake gates belt catch can hear this.

  • A custom catch can that was made by a company that could have motor sports had making these for them.

  • Cooling monster.

  • We are running a CNR racing radiator, which is quite a bit more volume than factory.

  • We're also running a approach approach speed, right?

  • Yeah, pro speed inter cooler for the supercharger, which is about twice the volume of the factory, but further testing showed that that was just sort of an insurance move in terms of attempts or not really any better than the factory one.

  • This just helps us with heat Soak for long track sessions and stuff like that.

  • In terms of the engine, we are running a custom ground cam.

  • I don't know the specs on it.

  • They were just specs.

  • That natural package it was put in here does have additional fuel load, though, because we are running a D s X fuel system with the flex fuel sensor in here.

  • And we do have 85 and we're running 10% 80 lower pulley to overdrive.

  • The supercharger and Kim had a bunch of supporting Monza.

  • Had to go along with it.

  • So we've got hard push rods, titanium valve springs.

  • Anything else that goes along with Beltran is actually a college spring Titanium retainer.

  • Okay, so Paula found spring to the entertainers that gives it.

  • It just smooth is slide smoothly, right?

  • As you're compressing the hard part, push rods.

  • All right, because as you're increasing the lift in duration on the on the cam and it's got extra forces on it, you don't want those kind of finding your vending, obviously.

  • And then we have the phase walk out before the cam because the whole camp would phase shift a sort of, ah, variable valve.

  • But not really the whole camera to sort of move, right?

  • Yes.

  • So we've blocked that out.

  • So that's no, that's why idol so damn loud because it's the same valve in duration of all rpm.

  • Right?

  • Okay, so that's why the stock car was much quieter at idle because that valve or the cameras shifting toe are phasing to, I guess lower the duration when it didn't need it.

  • Open up the throttle.

  • The camera Move right?

  • Yes.

  • Okay.

  • And then it is all tuned using HP two years.

  • Oh, for the cat back, it is American racing.

  • We do have American racing catalytic converters in here for the street.

  • You can see them right there because I'm not a fan of the 1971 dump truck smell when I am running gasoline, which I rarely running the star, but also to to keep the noise down to smooth it out a little bit.

  • But when I do road, race it.

  • I do have test sites that go in there to remove those cats.

  • You can check between each one.

  • Yeah, I just kind of take a random sample.

  • Look for anything.

  • Some, Some metal saving will always be normal, but we're looking for is really chunks.

  • Chunks is a bad thing, right?

  • Especially if you get anything.

  • Brass color, because usually brass colors, normally camshaft stuff or not Camp staff, but bearing Yeah, that's pretty clean.

  • Help Bill out there.

  • Go.

  • So I know one of the common question this video is gonna be is J how much power you make in.

  • The funny thing is, I don't truly know the answer to that question, because when Mike Dino the car last year, we had a couple of issues that were happening at the time that we made the run.

  • So Cunningham, motor sports at the time.

  • Um, no longer in business, technically, as a build shop anymore, they're tuning service.

  • Now there's a Mustang, Dina, which is kind of middle ground in terms of being heartbreaker.

  • I think Dina packets the lowest Dina jet is the gym most generous in terms of numbers.

  • Mustang kind of fits somewhere in the middle, but all Dino's can be tuned recalibrated toe to look greater.

  • Look terrible, Doesn't doesn't doesn't.

  • What matters is the baseline versus the after the bill.

  • So I did have Mike do a baseline on this.

  • And on the Mustang, Dino at base signed 529 wheel horsepower of stock for a 650 horsepower car factory at the Crank.

  • It worked out to about 15% drive train loss.

  • So what we what we Dino 6 99 or seven on the dot after?

  • Yeah, I think it was 6 99 but the thing was, it was 100 and eight degree day.

  • It was 100 over 100 degrees and the attempt in the shop when he did it, and we had a clog supercharger brick where the eighties were just going through the roof during the dino pool and on these cars, just like most cars.

  • As the intake temp goes up, timing gets pulled because of pre detonation.

  • So we're pretty positive that with all of that fixed and the cooling mods I've made now on how low my I t stay, I'm probably making a good, solid 20 ish more wheel horsepower than that day, possibly a bird into the thirties, because I think that I said something like 1 80 at the end of that pool.

  • But we do know we picked up 170 wheel horsepower versus the baseline with Ian take overheating.

  • So your guess is as good as mine is how much it's really making.

  • But if we take that 15% drive trading loss into effects with 170 wheel horse powers, you take 1 70 add 700.15 to that.

  • We're really, like 845 crank, which I'll take.

  • That's fun for the way to put it.

  • It's fun, but it's starting to feel slow, and that's the problem.

  • So I wanted to run.

  • A colder thermostats are running a 1 60 in here.

  • I know some people would be like Why you're running a 1 60?

  • What's the point of that?

  • Well, the oil in this car is cooled by the cooling, so the coolant has some diversion diverted lines that go to the actual oil pan on the side of the oil pan of the cooler corps that the oil pump you.

  • And so instead of bringing the oil out of the pan through a radiator, like a lot of cars doing them back to the pan.

  • It just brings to cool into the pan.

  • Well, that's extra heat being dumped into the cooling systems.

  • That's why we have the big C in our radiator.

  • That's why we're also running this l s three style thermostat housing, which bolts right up to the water pump right here.

  • And so we can run l s three style process, which have a huge selection versus the lt four style where the thermostat is part of the housing and it's a plastic halliday.

  • So it's just another one of those things where I took points of failure that I've experienced in the past, especially where their plastic and upgraded them to try and deal with any potential failures in the future, especially for road racing.

  • So when you're visually inspecting right now, what is it you're looking for?

  • Really?

  • A lot of it is just for anything that is at a place like looking at the end caps here for the rocker arms to make sure that you don't have one of the trillions coming apart looking at assault tip wear and stuff like that.

  • We're gonna pull somebody's often take a peek at.

  • And then we also look at the valve springs to make sure that there's no cracking breaking any kind of unusual signs of metal shavings or anything like that coming from them.

  • So you look at where the rocker end hits the spring and stuff so shining their shoes Charney And really Wait, you're looking out, right?

  • Gouging, uh, excessive heat, anything like that.

  • The it'll it'll physically turned the tips blue.

  • Like it exhausted.

  • But titanium.

  • Are these titanium or all women know these air?

  • She steal all those, you know, these were actually steal.

  • So is it just the valves that are titanium?

  • Then I'm guilty for Yeah, it's just the intake valve.

  • And then this is actually a lash cap here.

  • So in that protects the titanium tipped nicely.

  • You know, put those back on is very bad.

  • Well, it also accounts for the thickness of that too, right?

  • In terms of all the miseries yet, well, the titanium is a very strong material, but it doesn't take contact very well.

  • So whenever it takes contact like that, it basically just goes right through it.

  • It's one of the reasons why I have Mike Doing this checkup is because one, like I said, it's been over a year since we modified this car, actually, just barely over a year.

  • I was incompetents last year in Taiwan when they had the car.

  • So I was like, Well, the best way to distract myself from the work they're doing on the car and being impatient wanting it back is just go overseas.

  • So they had the car while I was out of the country, and one of the things I noticed with long to headers and then with the new Cam and all that stuff was that valve.

  • Train noise is really loud versus what it was.

  • Factory Um, so I know if it's a placebo or what, but because I haven't been driving the car nearly as much the last six months as I did the 1st 6 months, uh, driving around my brain goes, This sounds louder to me like it got louder or something.

  • And I remember Mike telling me when I asked him what's a sign that we're dealing with excess cam where he said, you'll start hearing louder lifter noise and valve train noise.

  • So I just went Well, it's time to do the checkup.

  • Might as well at least have him give it a clean bill of health and do this inspections because this car is an investment.

  • I don't really talk pricing.

  • I mean, you could look at how much is cars by itself.

  • You can kind of figure how much was spent on Mods alone.

  • That's a big investment.

  • And I want it to last me more than a than a year.

  • We'll talk about the 68 over here for a sec.

  • This is, uh, fully custom built l s seven and everything.

  • It's in a 99 at 1 35 in the quarter, naturally aspirated.

  • But the crazy thing about this car there's a lot more steel in this car than a modern car, which makes people automatically think old muscle cars like this are just big heavy boats.

  • £3100 with him in it and fuel That's race.

  • Wait.

  • And so what?

  • The way he has the same gear that way.

  • Has it dialed the transmission set up most of that quarter mile time is what 60 foot and the eight mile is just your flying right.

  • If you go and watch videos of his, you guys can go.

  • You can find him on Instagram under Red Barn raising and you'll find videos of this at the track and it pulls the wheels up.

  • It pulls the wheels up as an n a car.

  • Uh, yeah, it's full drags up.

  • Drag suspension.

  • Obviously, it's got It's considered a That's a full slip, right?

  • But it's considered a street.

  • Tyra.

  • Small drag tire was a drag radio.

  • Yeah, so it's not even a full drag flick.

  • And he's pulling the wheels up.

  • It's got skinnies upfront.

  • Um, the hood is something that's been talked about a bit.

  • Whether or not you're gonna paint it or leave it with that old school when only black kind of a deal.

  • You know, with the speed and the quarter mile times he puts down with this, you gotta show it off with a big cow.

  • You know what they say about guys with big cows?

  • They've got fast cars interior on.

  • This is pretty sick being, um shifter even smells nice in here.

  • Doesn't smell like a junkyard car like some cars, even though they're like, nice like this.

  • They still smell like an old car, you know, I mean, this has that just have that classic Chevy smell, But I assume a lot of this is probably the cleaner since that you use on the seats leather conditioners, and speaking of valve springs in size, this is looks easily, like double the size of mine.

  • That's because that's a 632 cubic in Chevy Big block.

  • I mean, compare it to his snap on to Lux and for you.

  • Yeah, that's, uh that's less murder next with us.

  • It kind of looks like a Magnuson supercharger sitting on top of that.

  • This right here.

  • What?

  • I would twist the tip, throw the ball s o for the size comparison.

  • That's the 6 32 right there.

  • That's an L s.

  • The engine everyone's always like.

  • I'll put it out lesson it.

  • But in unless there's a no less which literally looks like a supercharger that would our route style that would go on top of this guy.

  • Like if you just look at the size comparison there.

  • Okay, So clean Bill.

  • Health of the car.

  • Mike's gone through it.

  • Check things like the oil could open the oil filter, checked the catch.

  • Can no oil in the catch can
