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

    What's wrong with copper brake lines? I have always used it to replace rusted steel lines. They basically last forever, and very easy to work with

    Typically a snowball affect is best for electrical issues. It's best to add LOTS of horsepower to resolve said issues.

    Why would you replaced copper brake lines? Copper lines last significantly longer than steel lines in areas that salt their roads. You took a step backwards.

    why do all those old school blowers have the belt tensioner pushing the belt out instead of in wouldn't you want to point it in to get more belt wrap That's how it is on every other supercharger I see except these old ones although I did see one video where they did it the other way but no one else. is it one of those things where no one's ever done it the other way so no one does or what does the tension not work with those cog belts unless it's pulled out instead of in

    My Peugeot 306 D turbo has a dodgy brake light. Do I need to fit a bigger turbo and turn my diesel pump up further and put a bigger front mount intercooler on it?

    From the opening burn out it seems dumb for that truck to have a rear end that isn't a locker or a posi.

    copper brake lines will never rust and have better movement under pressure and will break less often cause of metal fatigue if they where to get hit unlike steel that will rust and will break more cause of metal fatigue so you should have kept the copper lines to bad u switched those
