V8 Radio: Solving Problems When There Is No Manual, Trivia, And More!

 

On this episode of V8 Radio, Mike Clarke and Kevin Oeste dive into a behind-the-scenes scenario regarding an unusual error faced by the V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew on a project that’s nearly complete… but not quite yet.    The car is the sweet 1969 Camaro heavily modified with a Detroit Speed suspension system, Baer Brakes, Forgeline Wheels, Vintage Air, C&R Radiator, Currie rear axle, Hydratech brake booster, sticky Toyo tires, and more.    The big recent upgrade comes in the form of a 700+ horsepower GM LT-4 supercharged V8, and so far, it’s been a heck of a ride.   However… the calibration in the ECM is doing a few funky things during the accelerating upshifting process.    We’re working with GM on a solution, but sometimes you have to work around quirks when you build custom cars.     Later, it’s an update on the ’67 Pontiac GTO restoration project as it enters the paint stage of the process, which leads to a cool paint discussion including how certain Hellcat Challengers had thin paint from the factory!  This, automotive trivia questions, a nod to NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz, and news on an upcoming V8TV production at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Indianapolis!   Whew, that’s a big episode of V8 Radio!
