We spend lots of time tuning cars at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, and have learned a few things to help make dyno shop tuning sessions go smoothly. If you need help with a custom tune for you car, be it fuel injected or carbureted, feel free to contact our shop at 314.783.8325 or at http://www.v8speedshop.com/tune and we’ll be happy to discuss having our technicians tune your car on the chassis dyno.

The GM Connect & Cruise powertrain conversions have become very popular, and for good reason. They offer a matched engine and transmission combination delivering reliability, power, and economy, and this clean 1971 Chevrolet C10 pickup is going to be used as a daily driver, making it a perfect candidate for the Connect & Cruise upgrade. We've performed many LS swaps, and are looking forward to upping the power level on this truck to 480 HP and adding the electronic overdrive 4-speed automatic transmission. You can follow along in the photo gallery below, and if you'd like more information on a swap like this for your ride, click to contact the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.

If your custom aluminum wheels have seen better days, there is a possibility that they can be restored to look new again. We took our Vintage Wheel Works V45 wheels that have been on our '62 Ford Galaxie 500 XL since 1999 to Dent Wizard's wheel refurbishing center to have them brought back to as-new condition. The Dent Wizard crew stripped the wheels, blasted and cleaned them, painted the centers, CNC machined the rim, and clear powder coated them to keep 'em looking new. We then added a set of custom white and red lined tires from Diamond Back Classics to give our old Galaxie a look all it's own. We think they look great, what do you think?
