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:

Usually about 13.1 to 13.8 in boost on direct injection. If you get down to 12.5 you have an issue or you're dumping about 40psi down its throat.

Also liquid nails would help. And as long as your using 2"x4" you might as well put a block of wood in each corner and at the outer ends tight to the floor and up to the bottom of each level all the way up to the bottom of the top shelf 2"x4" bracket. That way the load is transferred down all the way from the top shelf to the floor. Was that just word salad? Well I can see it my minds eye better then I can describe it. Man I wish I were there, I could build it faster then I could explain it.

For putting up those boards I would get some 3 inch concrete screws and just drill a hole big enough for the screws to fit in the 2x4s

Just use nails in the wall's guys. Pre Drill your holes to the diameter of the nail's 3" spikes work good, Buy some hay wire, make a loop around the tip of the nail and wrap the wire down the nail. if done right when you drive the nail into the predrilled hole the wire will compress around the nail and fasten it securely to the wall. Just get it right the first time cause they are a pain to pull out once the wire is compressed lol

I thought the transmission only required the clutch in first gear? Am I wrong there? I could have sworn that Finnegan said that when he intro'd the tranny back at the beginning of the build. I think I'll look up that episode and give it a watch.

hey finnegan titan concrete bolts will be the magic you are looking for. ive used Ramset's, blue screws, red head wedge ancors. all will leave you pissed off.you need a roto hammer or hammer drill to predrill but once your hole is drilled you just put any impact gun on the proper sized titan bolt and run it in.if its not right put the impact in reverse and back it out and try again. totally reusable.

About a $500 dollar shelf in the current day and age. Newbern has really grown on me, I like that guy! Good addition to the channel.
Have Kevin Smith from KSR Performance take a look at it he's a Holley expert 👍🏻

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?
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 can run a DI lt4 at like 13:1.

I know that was bad just throwing stuff at it, lack of experience I guess.
the hackery in this truck hurts my insides. makes for good videos i guess...
it just makes me sad that everything is thrown together then youre surprised when it inevitably fails.

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.

Garage It Yourself
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.

Hey, you should always use only pressure treated wood against concrete and you can even get fancy and use the “sill seal” foam

You should use Tapcon screws instead of a Hilti gun.

I'd like to see a GMT800 Project (1999-2007) with the LS 4.8-6.0 (LR4, LM7, LQ4/9) with a 8l90 or 10l90 running the wheels.
