Dyno Results for the Body-Dropped and LT Swapped Chevy C10: Finnegan's Garage Ep.140

There's a lot going on in today's episode. First, Newbern and I attempt to build new shelving in the shop and attach it to the concrete walls using a high-powered nail shooter, which doesnt work at all. In fact, the 2x4 wood falls right off the wall before we can ever stack any boxes onto the shelves. Since that wasn't working we decide to head to Mo's Speedshop in Dallas, Georgia, to fix the tune on my 1967 Chevy C10. It was running real bad and although it took several hours to figure out why, in the end the Chevrolet Performance LT4 made over 640 ft-lbs or torque at rear tires, which is awesome!
Here's a link to the crate engine that's under the hood of the C10:
Here's a link to the awesome sequential gearbox:

thanks for watching!

I've done alot of water proofing don't use a rams head when ya have any issues with water. I recommend tapcons they don't creator your concert also tapcons can be dipped in epoxy making it water tight.

To be a gearhead on some level & to not be a gun guy is such a foreign concept to me. The elegance of the mechanisms for both when properly executed are things of beauty. Whether we are talking a AKM, Jeep, Rolls Royce or Holland & Holland double rifle the work especially the handcrafted ones & design are amazing either in their simplicity, reliability or beauty.

Do part throttle pulls!
In the thumbnail of this video your truck looks like it’s bent still the nose drops and the tub looks to be sloping back as well..

A couple of things with run ability stand out. Excessive crank time till it fires off. It should fire right away 5:32. When it stops pulling it shuts down entirely. Seems electrical. I suspect spark is missing on all cylinders when it happens. Something as simple as a bad engine block ground could cause this. I have been lucky in the past and maybe you sort out the extended crank problem and both problems go away. I had a car that ran fine until the exhaust was worked on, it turned out that the exhaust was the only ground for the engine block. When checking for spark it had no spark when testing it with the plug grounded at the engine but had spark when testing against the chassis. An inspection found a severed engine block ground..... easy fix, hard to pinpoint. Good luck and keep up the quality videos. Always fun to watch.

Finnigan can you update us the backfire under load with the C10 ,did you find a solution?
GaryLordsWayMinistry 11 dager siden
Have you checked the Throttle sensor? To see if it is calibrated correctly or maybe even shorting out, causing the timing to go weird or tell the engine timing to go too far advanced or something? You know what they say: Lean is mean~!~

Those ramset guns work better with a harder pin when the concrete is cured after 27 days as well as with a shot that is a magnum shell instead of the fresh concrete shot.

You would be better off using a drill bit and a concrete wall anchor system for that shelf framing job you are trying to anchor to the wall. Those Ramset concrete pins work better when used to anchor wall floor bottom plates to the concrete to keep the bottom plate of wall framing from moving when kicked or hit so the wall will not move out of plumb. Maybe you should have studied a little bit before attempting this project. A little preparation would have gone a long way here to keep from looking like total armatures here.

You have to push really hard to get that nail gun to get it to fire the round. That is the built in safety so someone just can't pull on the trigger have fire. They have three different power ranges the shell are color coded as the strength. I worked a job and they wanted a single door on the garage we held a eye beam up on 2x4 jacks and my boss used to big of a charge and blew the washer that on the nail right thru the hem fir 2x4. You also use use square cut nails and hammer them in with B F H. Mike you looked like you were ready for a moon walk. Love your hannel you guys have so much fun. Shifting your truck is so cool without using the clutch I wish I could shifted my 67 GTO that fast, I use to try, I got pretty fast but that was a long time ago

Go by Home Depot and purchase 1/4” wedge anchors and shit can that Ramset on cured concrete especially, on a high “psi” strength concrete vertical surface! The only awesome thing about a ramset are using the 22 rounds to scare your buddies by sneaking up behind them with a squeezed round in your lineman pliers and then dropping perpendicular to the ground firing pin sticking out passed the end of pliers of the pliers an 1/8” inch..

1st rule of tuning, don't try to get your transient and static fuelling correct at once! Do a SLOW accelerator tip in to move vertically up the load line at the engine speed fixed (this allows the dyno to lock onto and hold that speed, meaning you only move in ONE axis across the map) and do it slow enough to NOT trigger the transient fuelling (even better, zero all transient maps!). This allows you to both creep up on problem areas, and means you have some chance of understanding what is happening! Once your base map (with a warm engine) is within about 0.05 lambda, then you can start to look at the transient requirements, because you KNOW the steady state map is correct!

Use concrete anchors and a plug in hammer drill. The .22 nailer does not work well on the average concrete. 3/8 concrete anchor bolts are awesome.

Use tapcons they are screws for concrete. Drill a pilot hole with a hammer drill or the hammer drilling function on a cordless drill. They pretty well.

That is a really nice C10 build. I am also building a 1968 Chevy C10, but it is a original shortbed, fleetside,396 bigblock truck with TH400. I had thought about putting a LS engine in it but I think I will keep it bigblock and hopefully afford a big inch bigblock with procharger or other boost mod and just save the original stock engine. Anyways you are building a really awesome truck and it will be cool to watch the build come together.

Um, aren't you supposed to do a whole bunch of part throttle tuning at different dyno loads to be able to build up your VE table? Once you've filled out a bunch of that then you can do full pulls. Trying full pulls without building up the VE table will cause problems and possibly damage the engine.

You should use Tapcon screws instead of a Hilti gun.

You were using a cartridge for a block wall to fasten to vaulted concrete... and the nails may have been too short as well, either way get a hammer drill will a 4" 5/32th concrete bit and a handful of 3/16 3" tapcons and you be alright.
