She lives once again !!!!
433 BBC FIRST START
Some tweaking and dyno yet to come...........
well thats just begging for RPMs
Don't you just love the smell of a new engine when you start it for the first time. I love the smell of engine paint and RTV silicone burning in for the first time.
what kind of fuel are you running in that? I was about to say "and the smell of race fuel" but if you have EFI(read have an O2 sensor) what fuel are you running? AFAIK leaded fuel destroys O2 sensors.
We will be running race fuel
That thing is a BEAST!! What are the spec on it?
BTW, I don't recall ever seeing a write-up in any off-road mag about your rig. WHY NOT?
Looks and sounds good Theresa!! Is one of the injectors messed up though? The close up shot of the throttle body showed a pretty drippy, gloppy spray pattern on one injector.
I thought something looked off too.
To check a TBI injector, slap a timing light on #1 and point it at the TB, adjust the timing(need an adjustable light, but I bet you have one) and adjust it till the spray pattern looks solid(like there is no pulse, due to the strobe of the timing light). If you can't get that out of it, somethings likely not right, or if the cone looks messed up, again.
It;s a 433 BBC.

We changed a few things .
New roller cam- intake lift .653 , .660 exhaust
Intake duration 286
and valve springs to go with the cam
We took off the aluminum rockers and replaced them with cromoly rockers
Intake has also been changed.
Why not a write up????? Ask them.....I don't know.
There have bee small clips here and there though
We were on discovery channel this spring though
There is teaking to be done. We do have spare injectors if need be.
Cool, thats a trick I was just taught today so, you know, new knowledge I simply have to share. An old GM tech I have for a teacher taught me that.
Flashed in the rings yesterday. If our neighbours didn't know we were there....they do now.
Checked out the injector....It's all good...must have been a camera angle
That is a beast, and a beautiful engine. Great work! Is the Lunati one of the new Voodoos?
its no k5 anymore but i like it.
You are correct. Leaded fuel and O2 sensors do not mix as we just found out eventhough some told us it would last for a while.
We've already burnt 15 gallons of fuel on testing and it hasn't left the garage yet.
Another thing, K&N Billet aluminum micro filter fuel filters do not work . They restrict fuel flow.
We'll be running VP Motorsport 109 unleaded
More to come
Not knocking it, just curious - why aluminum rods?
As always, very cool truck and great video!
That truggy is sick!! I love it...
