I dunno..Maybe OK...Time Will Tell
1 July 2014 | by digvisgrpSee all my reviews

Saw the show for the first time last night. The episode had the guys building a 1971 Chevelle SS 454. The owner of the car wants the car to go at 13 sec in the 1/4 mile. This is a numbers matching Chevelle that he wants them to do whatever is necessary with a budget of $50K.

So they run out and buy a 572 crate motor. Now don't get me wrong this a beautiful monster motor and wish we had them back in the day. So they invest a total of $45K in the car. I know the engine is about $15K with another 8-900 for headers and maybe $5K for trans for approx $21K.

Now I could be off on some of this but that leaves $29K left. The show did not show what else they did other than a ring and pinion so I don't know how they spent the rest of the cash.

When it was all said and done they got a 12.5 out of the car. Under the 13 sec time the owner wanted but not what I would have expected.

In 1970 I owned a 1966 Chevelle with a 454 with headers, 4 speed and 488s. When the car was in its worst shape (only a 780 holly on a Tarantula manifold, no head work, I ran 11.9s all day long. How the heck did this beast only do a 12.5?

I have to be missing something.

Lastly they built a beautiful 1965 Vette and did a great job on it but when they put the motor together they found the push rods too short. So all they had to do is loosen the rocker nuts and replace the push rods but they went on about how they would have to take the whole motor apart again. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Overall it was fun to watch although a little sketchy on the truth.
