In this 4 part series, we'll show you the engine build for our 1968 Camaro, "Reloaded". In this first part, we start with a 490 CI short block from Fast Times Motor Works. Trevor takes you through all the steps in assembling this motor on the stand including degereeing the Comp Thumpr Cam and valvetrain. Also covered are the install of the Holley cylinder heads, Weiand Stealth intake, and ARP hardware using ARP Ultra Torque and Royal Purple Max Tuff assembly lube. Next time, we'll assemble the Vintage Air Front Runner Serpentine system.
