This was the personal project of a master mechanic, and there is less than 6,000 miles on the whole build that’s why the engine bay looks fresh, clean, and seriously powerful. Chevy’s bold orange is an instant standout in-between the dark fender walls. But more than just look like a monster motor, you’re looking at a true performer. It’s a 355 cubic-inch V8 dialed up to an 11:1 compression ratio. It has been fortified with Dart Sportsman heads, bronze guides, and a competition valve job. Plus, it has go-fast goodies like a Lunati Voodoo hydraulic roller cam, Petronix Flame Thrower ignition, Weiand Team G single plane intake, and a Holley Ultra HP 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor. There’s a nice set of Hedman long tube headers that feed the rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust. It all says cool thanks to Griffin aluminum radiator with Derale cooling fans. Making sure you get the most out of this enhanced V8 is the T56 six-speed manual transmission that includes a Ram flywheel and Centerforce dual friction LT1-style clutch for truly confident power shifting.
