The Ramp Truck Gets a Blower! Burnouts for Days! Finnegan's Garage Ep.107

#dragster #race #weiand #murder nova #Autos & Vehicles
It all began with a burnout and a dangling taillight. Back in Episode 95 we tried to do burnouts in a recent acquisition, this 1969 Chevy C50 ramp truck. It didn't go well. The truck ran horribly and wouldn't spin even one of the back tires unless we drove backwards at 10 mph and then slammed the Turbo 400 transmission into Reverse! While we don't recommend this sort of behavior, it was effective; the Ramp Truck smoked one rear tire right down to the cords. While awesome, it wasn't inspiring performance. We needed more power and we needed to fix that busted taillight. What was our solution? Installing a Weiand 6-71 blower and dual Holley 750cfm "double pumper" carbs atop the 454!
Is our engine built for boost? Nope. Are our brakes, suspension or chassis up to the task of harnessing the newfound power? No way! We did it anyway and now thanks to a lot of hours in the garage and some custom fabrication and wiring we now have a reliable, functional and badass looking hot rod hauler that smokes tires with ease..
In this video not only will you see how we fit the massive supercharger under the stub nose hood of Chevy's medium-duty truck, but we'll also give you tips on fabricating, ignition systems, and how to get your nasty chassis clean with a brand-new product from CRC Industries..

โ€œHere comes security... ahh Iโ€™m ducking downโ€ is real inner 12year old goodness.

Best sentence ever. โ€œWhat began as a simple supercharger install to fix a tail lightโ€

The tail light is out on my Voyager, do you think I should fix it with a Crate Hemi and RWD conversion?

by PiDsMedia 4 months ago

That security guards probably saying there's nobody else down here but that big old truck and it couldn't have made all that smoke

"You just don't want to aim this at plastic, rubber, or painted surfaces..." 30 seconds later, drenches the the UCA bushings with it. ๐Ÿคฃ

My favorite burnout was when I was a kid my father and I took his dump truck up to the dealership to get a diesel. The dump we were in was a Ford with I believe was a 460 4spd the tach went to 4 grand I'm like dad see if you can get the dual wheels to spin. They spun so Efn hard he brought it to redline come off the clutch the truck did NOT move the ass end started to drift sideways and quickly smoked the street out. I've had some badass cars since then but my best memory was me and the old man burning the dual wheels it always makes me smile thinking bout that day...

I was losing it when security was coming up, huge burnout cloud behind you, and you wave.

"The tail light's still out, but now we can do burnouts."
This is fine.

Here in Denmark we use copper brakelines, when the factory steel lines rust and breaks. Then its only the rubber parts you need to think on.

those are some killer burnouts. I love the "smiles per gallon" thing

Hilarious!!! My kids and I were driving by the sports park while this was happening I guess. My son says "Dad, the trees are on fire!"

Turn signal light on my Bronco is out, does that mean I need EFI?

Dam....that is one U G L Y scoop

by Dan Sertich 4 months ago

And I literally just fixed the tail light on my tow rig, like with a bulb not a blower. Do my 454 next!

by GlutenFreeBear 4 months ago

I knew they weren't gonna fix the taillight. Rock on.
Stay safe.
