Epic Road Trip, a Blown Up Hemi, and Goodbye 6 Door Ford! Finnegan's Garage Ep.117

This trip was so good that we had to split the video into two parts because so much stuff happened. First off, here's a little life update; We filmed this back in September but didn't get time to edit and upload the video until now. Immediately after filming our trip to Rocky Mountain Raceweek 2.0 (which is not in the Rocky Mountains), we left town to film Roadkill and Faster With Finnegan and we still aren't done filming those shows so we are working on Finnegan's Garage edits in our spare time.
Anyway, since September, a lot has happened. I've bought a new enclosed ramp truck, which you'll briefly see in this video, I've traded away the six-door Ford F650 for a '66 Chevy Suburban, which you'll also see in this video, too. We also had a small shift linkage issue in Blasphemi during Rocky Mountain Raceweek 2.0, which resulted in a major engine failure-again, it's in this video.
With any luck we'll upload Part 2 of the video next week. In that video, you'll see the rest of the road trip and you get to see my wife cry when I surprise her on our 15th wedding anniversary. :)
03:37 If you'd like to grab the cool LED lights from WireCare.com we used on our trailer in this episode then go here:
Check out Rugged Radios which we would have used way more if not for the small engine failure!:
If you'd like your own Finnegan Speed and Marine shirt, hats or stickers then go here:
All proceeds will go toward fixing the damn Hemi-again! lol

Big red truck,....THE BRICK here a hint for those that go to races, camping, fishing, etc.... Start a file in your phone, on your computer, a list of what you need to bring. as you accumulate trips, you can add or subtract thing you do or don't need. and you can just print out everytime for a trip and check off the items as you load guy I used to work with had that same era Suburban, but had 3/4 ton 4x4 axles and springs, we called it the lunch box, everyone would pile in at lunchtime on the jobsite

Hey, I know that location in Owasso, Oklahoma. I guess it is the closest hotel to the racetrack. But still a nice town to visit. Nice suburban thought. Hopefully your wife loves it.

Hey Finn, I got some questions about Blashemi's Mansmission. I'm sure you've answered them before so forgive me if you have. I'm seriously thinking about buying one for my street-strip truck and want your thoughts. It's still the g-force GF-5R right? I would like to drive my truck on the road often and my power goal is 800- 900HP for a genuine mid ten second man-shifted truck. What is that mansmision like to live with on the street? And the big question is, would you buy it again after using it for so long? P.S. Love what you do and the stuff you build.

Why don’t you run a Jeffco transmission line Larson did on his Chevy 2? Can’t argue with his success with the transmission. Just curious that’s all. Love everything you do , never miss an episode. Also if you need a hemi, have a 572 stage V available.

Blasphemi being a manual (stick) car is so friggin awesome but damn, chasing the times that Mike is , I reckon it must up the difficulty level by about a billion billionth. So much respect, even the idea of dreaming of a stick shifted, blown hemi in a old full sized sedan means that he should never ever have to buy himself a beer in a pub for the rest of his life. Great entertainment, great showbiz, great work.

The Suburban name was used under both Chev and GMC, unlike the Blazer/Jimmy. The difference between the two was the grille styling for the most part. The 5th gen Chevy he traded for here has a drastically different grille than the GMC version.

Pro Tip: Go to Harbor Fraud and buy a box of Marine (Adhesive Lined) Shrink Tube, 67598. Comes in an assortment of sizes, (black only). Use colored shrink tube for over the top ID, or color coordinating purposes, ONLY. Seal ALL your wire connections, you'll be glad you did. Makes it waterproof, and also helps with vibration-related wiring failure. GeoD

They now make heat shrink butt connectors that are NOT crimp connectors, they have low temp solder inside. So when you put your wires in and hit it with the heat gun, it solders the wires together and insulates them!

at this point I think you need to put a 440 in blasphemi, as look how well the one in the General did, it had enough power to haul one of the worst things ever created by man, a Beige motorhome, in its weakened emmission strangled form, then it had the bejesus beat out of it and then had all of those things done to to it create a ripping roaring monster of a car, and its still holding together today, either that or go for one of the original firepower hemi's of the 50's as it seems the 426 hemi is an engine that is already maxed out when you get it, so taking it further just seems to always break it, while the 440, its big, its powerful, its heavy, and its meant to haul ass at any speed in anything that its put in regardless of what version it is. and the 426, it got beat by a Buick Back in the day, look up any buick with a 455, they will and do beat stock hemi's of the era like theirs a reason why the 426 wasnt put in everything, and while the hemi is a fine reliable engine stock, and chrystler used to sell them as industrial power generators to run airforce bases, it seems like every time I turn around blasphemi is eating them for breakfast like heck, theres you new name, the Hemi Eater, a 440 powered 1955 chevy 150 2 door sedan.
