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

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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Sup my friends I'm still working on my s10 mini truck I've had since high school 18 years ago.I could really use that kit because all of my wires are 25 years old cracked and bare wire showin.. But I've been running a turn signal that I cannot figure the short and blows fuse everytime. ,I've received a ticket and have to use proper hand Signaling to avoid 150$ improper signal use. So been trying to figure it out for I 10 years also trying to use plugs for the electric windows and also using 4 door blazer powrwindow switches rear switches for the bag switches . Basically fixing my 18 year old wire fire connection for something to be proud of.. sad thing I wasted 7years reviving from cancer and a stem celll transplant. Meanwhile building my own watts link from scratch and actually works. I have welded and grinder everything so when I finish it someday I can day I did it cause I'm stubborn as shit. When115 degree weather I plan on having the parts I need and finishing it this year. Because minitrick!
