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.
Turbo "S71" Olds Engine Build Video BTR Performance Part 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/enginedvd - This is the first in a multi-part series covering the custom stroker engine build performed by master engine builder Bill Trovato at BTR Performance for our turbocharged 1971 Olds project called the "S71".

New Outlaw Camaro for Nick Scavo V8TV
Nick Scavo and Jeff D'Agostino recently acquired the 1991 Chevrolet Camaro race car originally started by Scavo, then completed by Chuck Samuel and the crew at Chassis Engineering. Confused? Seeing that http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum - Nick has been behind the wheel of 3 different race cars in the past 3 years, it's not an easy story to follow. We took this opportunity to launch V8TV Web Radio to sort out the details, and in this video, Nick takes us through the car... a twin turbo Outlaw 10.5 race car headed for the mid 6-second quarter mile range at well over 200 miles per hour.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance 350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than 10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end. The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
Gear Vendors Overdrives SEMA 2008 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Gear Vendors has been displaying their bolt-on overdrive units at the SEMA show since 1981, and Rick Johnson brings us up to speed on the latest from Gear Vendors. They have units that fit just about every application imaginable, and they handle over 1000 horsepower with ease. Add to that the 28% increase in fuel economy (or higher!) and you have a great mod for your muscle car or tow vehicle. We tested one in project Splitter and were really impressed with the performance.
