(NARRATOR)>> IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE HEAT GET A BETTER COOLING SYSTEM. TODAY ON ENGINE POWER OUR TRIPLE THREAT CAMARO GETS A GOOD CASE OF FROSTBITE. PLUS WE PERFORM A DRIVEWAY RESCUE FOR A GUY WANTING TO GIVE HIS 16 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER A SAFE, RELIABLE FIRST VEHICLE.

(PAT)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER. TODAY WE'RE BACK ON OUR SPLIT BUMPER CAMARO PROJECT, AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT IT IS A 1973 SPLIT BUMPER LT MODEL. IT ORIGINALLY CAME WITH A 350 SMALL BLOCK AND TURBO 350 TRANSMISSION, AND QUITE A FEW THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE WE PICKED UP THE CAR. SO TAKE A LOOK. MIKE AND I TOOK A QUICK DRIVE UP TO LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, TO LAY EYES ON ONE OF THE CLEANEST ALL ORIGINAL CAMAROS WE'VE EVER SEEN. THE CAR GREW UP IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, WHERE THE HUMIDITY IS LOW AND THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES, WHICH KEEPS THESE OLD JEWELS IN AWESOME SHAPE. WE BROUGHT IT BACK TO THE SHOP AND STARTED THE TEARDOWN BY REMOVING THE FRONT CLIP. THEN THE SUBFRAME. OUT BACK THE FACTORY REAR END AND LEAF SPRINGS CAME OUT AND WE TOOK ANOTHER LITTLE TRIP.

(MIKE)>> TO START THE BUILD OF A ONE PIECE CHASSIS AT STREET ROD GARAGE IN GRANT, ALABAMA. NOW THEY BUILT IT WITH TONS OF OPTIONS TO SUIT OUR STYLE AND IDEAS WE HAD FOR THE CAR. THE FABRICATION THAT GOES INTO THESE CHASSIS' IS SECOND TO NONE. ALL THE PIECES ARE CUT, PLACED IN JIGS, AND WELDED IN HOUSE. THE ONLY THING WE HAD TO TAKE CARE OF WAS THE POWDER COATING. IT WAS DONE AT MISTER SPEED COATINGS IN A GORGEOUS SILVER WITH A CLEAR COAT TO GIVE IT TONS OF DEPTH. THE BODY RECEIVED SOME MODIFICATIONS AS WELL, INCLUDING MINI TUBS OUT BACK. THEN THE CHASSIS AND THE BODY WERE MATED TOGETHER AND THE 440 INCH MOTOWN LS MADE A SERIOUS STATEMENT UP FRONT.

(PAT)>> NOW WE'RE GONNA GET THE FRONT END AND CORE SUPPORT MOUNTED SO WE CAN GET THIS CAR BUTTONED UP. WE DID REPLACE ALL OF THE OLD BODY MOUNT BUSHINGS WITH NEW ENERGY SUSPENSION URETHANE ONES. THE CORE SUPPORT WILL GET THE SAME TREATMENT. THEY ARE DIRECT REPLACEMENTS THAT COME WITH NEW SLEEVES AND WASHERS. ANY TIME YOU REPLACE BODY BUSHINGS MAKE SURE TO DO THE CORE SUPPORT. OTHERWISE THE FRONT CLIP ALIGNMENT MAY BE SACRIFICED.

(MIKE)>> I DON'T WANT TO KNOCK YOU IN THE HEAD.

(PAT)>> THAT'S OKAY, WOULDN'T DO ANY DAMAGE. OKAY, GO AHEAD.

(MIKE)>> ARE YOUR FINGERS BIGGER OR SMALLER THAN MINE?

(PAT)>> THEY'RE LESS NIMBLE. IS THAT A TECHNICAL TERM? ALL RIGHT, I'M GOOD.

(MIKE)>> ALL RIGHT, WE'LL LEAVE THESE LOOSE UNTIL WE GET THE FENDERS AND EVERYTHING HUNG, AND THEN WE CAN START MOVING, TIGHTENING OUR GAPS, AND TIGHTENING STUFF UP FROM THE FRONT TO THE BACK.

(PAT)>> ALL RIGHT, SLIDE THESE IN.

OH, I GOT IT!

(MIKE)>> HIGH HORSEPOWER STREET CARS AND TRUCKS CAN BE A CHALLENGE TO KEEP COOL. NOW THE RADIATOR IS ARGUABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE WHOLE COOLING EQUATION. ALUMINUM RADIATORS TYPICALLY COOL BETTER AND ARE LIGHT WEIGHT. NOW HOLLEY PERFORMANCE GROUP JUST ADDED ANOTHER BRAND TO THEIR HUGE LINE UP, AND IT ALL HAS TO DO WITH KEEPING THE CAR COOL, AND IT'S CALLED "FROSTBITE". THIS IS FROSTBITE'S 1970 THROUGH '81 CAMARO AND FIREBIRD LS SWAP RADIATOR. IT'S 100 PERCENT TIG WELDED AND HAS AN AIRCRAFT QUALITY ALUMINUM CORE, FITTINGS, AND TANKS FOR A 30 PERCENT WEIGHT SAVINGS. THE DUAL PASS CROSS FLOW DESIGN MAXIMIZES COOLING EFFICIENCY AND IT HAS 300 ROWS TO SUPPORT 600 PLUS HORSEPOWER. FROSTBITE RADIATORS ARE AVAILABLE FOR GM, FORD, DODGE, AND JEEP VEHICLES. WE'RE USING THE FACTORY HOLD DOWN TO LOCK IT IN PLACE.

(PAT)>> HERE IS A NEW PRODUCT THAT WE ARE HYPED ABOUT USING ON THE CAMARO. IT IS AUTO PLUMB'S DASH 20 WATER NECK CONVERSION ADAPTER. IT ALLOWS YOU TO GO FROM A STANDARD WATER OUTLET TO A DASH 20 LINE FOR COOLING. THEY WORK ON RADIATORS, WATER PUMPS, AND WATER NECKS, AND THEY ARE GUARANTEED TO BE LEAK PROOF, REMOVABLE, AND RESEALABLE. HERE'S A LOOK AT HOW THEY WORK. FIRST PLACE THE ASSEMBLY TAPE ONTO THE ADAPTER RING IN A CLOCKWISE DIRECTION. THEN SLIDE IT ON TO THE WATER NECK. PLACE A SMALL AMOUNT OF GREASE ON THE SHIM AND PUT IT ON THE WATER NECK. NOW PLACE A THIN FILM OF SILICONE OVER THE ENTIRE SEAL, AND SLIDE IT OVER THE WATER NECK WITH THE CHAMFER POINTED TOWARDS THE WATER NECK'S OPENING. SMOOTH THE SILICONE OUT OVER THE END OF THE SEAL AND PLACE A SMALL AMOUNT OF GREASE ON THE ADAPTER BODY THREADS AND THREAD IT ONTO THE RING. NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO WHEN THIS IS ON THE VEHICLE IS GRAB IT WITH THIS STRAP WRENCH AROUND HERE AND TIGHTEN IT WITH YOUR DASH 20 WRENCH, AND I MUST SAY THIS IS ONE OF THE SLICKEST THINGS THAT'S COME DOWN THE PIKE IN A LONG TIME. THIS IS A GOOD LOOK AT HOW THE FITTING LOOKS INSTALLED ON THE RADIATOR. WITH THE THERMOSTAT INSTALLED THE AUTO PLUMB HOUSING BOLTS ONTO OUR REMOTE INLET.

FINALLY THE EARL'S PERFORMANCE PLUMBING FITTINGS AND THE DASH 20 HOSE CAN BE ATTACHED.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE YOUR FIRST STEP OF WHEELS. IF YOU CAN WORK ON IT YOURSELF ALL THE BETTER.

(MIKE)>> HEY EVERYONE WE'RE CHECKING OUT SOME APPLICATIONS FOR A DRIVEWAY RESCUE. IT'S A COOL WAY FOR POWERNATION TO GIVE BACK TO A VIEWER AND HELP THEM OUT WITH THE RIDE THEY'RE HAVING A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH. NOW ROCK AUTO DOT COM AND NISSAN MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO BRING THE PARTS, THE TOOLS, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OUT TO YOU AND REPAIR A VEHICLE. WHETHER IT'S THE SUSPENSION OR THE ENGINE WE'RE GONNA GET IT RUNNING AGAIN.

(PAT)>> THE APPLICATIONS ARE FUN TO LOOK THROUGH, AND WE SEE A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING FROM BASIC MAINTENANCE TO FULL BLOWN CUSTOMS LIKE TAKING A HARD TOP AND TURNING IT INTO A CONVERTIBLE. WELL WE'D LIKE TO DO THEM ALL BUT THE REALITY IS THIS IS A ONE DAY PROJECT. SO WE FOUND A GUY THAT JUST BOUGHT A TRUCK FOR HIS DAUGHTER'S 16TH BIRTHDAY, AND BEFORE HE GETS IT ON THE ROAD HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE IT IS SAFE AND RELIABLE. SO WE'LL SEE IF WE CAN HELP HIM OUT.

(CHRIS)>> HELLO, I'M CHRIS LEE. I BOUGHT THIS TRUCK FOR MY DAUGHTER FOR HER SWEET 16 BIRTHDAY PARTY. WE'RE JUST LOOKING TO CLEAN IT UP AND TRY TO KEEP IT AS A REALLY NICE TRUCK FOR MY DAUGHTER TO DRIVE. I WANT HER TO BE AS SAFE AS I CAN KEEP HER ON THE ROAD AT 16 BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW HOW THIS WORLD IS TO DRIVE IN THESE DAYS. IT'S NOT HER I'M WORRIED ABOUT, IT'S THE OTHER PEOPLE.

(PAT)>> OH, LOOK AT THAT TRUCK! AND THEY'VE GOT A GARAGE TO WORK IN TOO.

HEY, YOU CHRIS?

(CHRIS)>> YES SIR.

(MIKE)>> HEY CHRIS, MIKE.

(CHRIS)>> NICE TO MEET Y'ALL.

(PAT)>> NICE TO MEET YOU. TALKED TO YOU YESTERDAY ABOUT THIS AND WELL WE'RE HERE BECAUSE OF YOU AND FOR YOUR VEHICLE.

(MIKE)>> THERE SHE IS.

(PAT)>> OKAY, SO TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT.

(CHRISTIN)>> IT'S A '99 CHEVROLET FOUR WHEEL DRIVE TRUCK. IT HAS A 350 ENGINE IN IT, AND IT'S BASICALLY EVERY BOY AT MY SCHOOL'S DREAM TRUCK.

(PAT)>> AND IT'S YOURS.

(CHRISTIN)>> AND IT'S MINE!

(PAT)>> THAT KINDA MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD DOESN'T IT?

(CHRISTIN)>> HELL YEAH.

(MIKE)>> WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO WELCOME NEW GEAR HEADS INTO THE FOLD, AND WITH OUR NISSAN NV FILLED WITH PARTS JUST WAITING TO BE INSTALLED, CHRISTIN'S GOT A BUSY DAY AHEAD OF HER. ALL RIGHT CHRISTIN, HERE'S ALL THE PARTS WE'LL BE PUTTING ON YOUR TRUCK TODAY. EVERYTHING CAME FROM ROCK AUTO DOT COM, WHICH THEY'RE REALLY UNIQUE BECAUSE THEY DO OEM PARTS AND AFTERMARKET PARTS. A LOT OF THE OTHER PARTS HOUSES LOCALLY DON'T DO THAT. WE'VE GOT THE WHOLE ARRAY FROM ENGINE PARTS, WATER PUMP, UPPER AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE, NEW BELT, SHOCKS, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE BRAKES. WE WANT YOU TO STOP AND NOT GET IN AN ACCIDENT. SO I GUESS THE ONLY QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU, DO YOU KNOW GERMAN?

(CHRISTIN)>> NO!

(MIKE)>> ALL RIGHT, TRY TO PRONOUNCE THAT. GIVE IT A SHOT.

(CHRISTIN)>> SPORT WAGEN.

(MIKE)>> WORKS FOR ME. ALL RIGHT, LET'S GET STARTED.

BAM!

(CHRISTIN)>> EW!

(MIKE)>> TURN THAT WAY. THAT'S WHAT WORKING ON CARS IS ALL ABOUT, GETTING DIRTY. ALL RIGHT CHRISTIN, WHEN PEOPLE ASK ABOUT DRUM BRAKES AND HOW EASY IS IT? IT IS, IT'S VERY EASY TO DO BUT THERE'S A LOT OF PIECES AND YOU WANT TO KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING. GRAB YOUR PHONE, TAKE A COUPLE OF PICTURES, AND NEVER TEAR DOWN BOTH SIDES. THAT WAY YOU'VE ALWAYS GOT THE MIRROR IMAGE TO LOOK AT IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE ANYTHING GOES. AFTER A METHODICAL TEAR DOWN AND A THOROUGH SHOT OF BRAKE CLEANER THE NEW DRUM BRAKES ARE INSTALLED. THEY'RE DESIGNED FOR QUICK, RELIABLE STOPPING POWER AND LONG SERVICE LIFE.

A SET OF BILSTEIN MONO TUBE GAS SHOCKS FINISH OUT THE REAR END. THAT'S GOOD. THE FRONT END IS QUITE A BIT EASIER TO WORK ON. ONCE THE ROTOR IS REMOVED AND THE WHEEL WELL COVER IS PULLED AWAY WE'LL REFRESH ALL THE WEAR ITEMS. WE'RE USING BILSTEINS UP FRONT AS WELL. WHAT WE'LL DO IS WE'LL GET THE TOP ONE ON FIRST CAUSE THE BOTTOM ONE WILL BE EASIER TO WALK UP INTO THE HOLE AND START THE BOLT. SO IF YOU WANT TO JUST GET THAT KIND OF POSITIONED.

(CHRISTIN)>> FROM THIS WAY?

(MIKE)>> YEAH YOU CAN EITHER DO IT FROM THAT WAY OR YOU CAN DROP IT DOWN THROUGH THE UPPER CONTROL ARM.

[ drill spinning ]

(MIKE)>> AFTER DROPPING IN THE 11.9 INCH ROTOR AND SEMI METALLIC PADS, THE BRAKE LINES ARE BLED AND THE BRAKE FLUID IS TOPPED OFF.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT, NOW THAT IT'S GOT PLENTY OF STOPPING POWER WE'LL OUTFIT CHRISTIN'S TRUCK WITH EVERYTHING IT NEEDS TO KEEP ON GOING.

(PAT)>> NOW THAT WE'RE GETTING THE BRAKES AND EVERYTHING ALL TUNED UP WE'RE GONNA DO A LITTLE BIT UP HERE TO INCREASE A LITTLE BIT OF RELIABILITY. CHANGING OUT SOME HOSES. WE'RE ACTUALLY GONNA CHANGE THE WATER PUMP AS WELL BECAUSE WITH A VEHICLE WITH A BUNCH OF MILES ON IT THEY CAN TEND TO SPRING A LEAK AT ANY TIME, AND THAT'S WHAT YOU DON'T WANT.

AS THIS CLUTCH FAN IS COMING OFF, TELL ME ABOUT SOMETHING THAT'S PRETTY UNIQUE, PERFECT ATTENDANCE.

(CHRISTIN)>> YEAH, I HAVEN'T MISSED A DAY OF SCHOOL SINCE KINDERGARTEN.

(PAT)>> I FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE.

(CHRISTIN)>> I HAVE ALL MY CERTIFICATES IN THE HOUSE.

(PAT)>> YOU HAVE CERTIFICATES FOR IT. WELL I GUESS I HAVE TO BELIEVE YOU THEN. LOOK AT THAT, HERE. FOR THE MODEST COST OF A FEW PARTS AND AN AFTERNOON'S WORK WE WILL GREATLY IMPROVE ON THE RELIABILITY OF CHRISTIN'S HIGH MILE TRUCK. SINCE WE'VE GOT TO REMOVE THE SHROUD, FAN, AND SOME HOSES TO GET TO THE WATER PUMP IT JUST MAKES SENSE TO REPLACE THE COOLANT LINES AND SERPENTINE BELT WHILE WE'RE AT IT. AFTER CHECKING THE DIMENSIONS OF THE REPLACEMENT HOSE THE NEW PIECE GOES INTO PLACE.

(CHRISTIN)>> HOW DO YOU DO THIS ONE OVER HERE?

(PAT)>> THAT'S GONNA BE A PROBLEM.

(CHRISTIN)>> I CAN SEE IT RIGHT HERE.

(PAT)>> IF YOU CAN SEE THE...

(CHRISTIN)>> I CAN GET IT UNSCREWED RIGHT HERE.

(PAT)>> YOU CAN?

(CHRISTIN)>> YEAH I CAN.

(PAT)>> YOU DID THAT NICELY. THAT WAY WE CAN JUST DUMP THE REST OF IT.

(MIKE)>> UH!

(PAT)>> LOOK AT THAT! WHEN YOU'RE PUTTING A BUNCH OF FORCE ON SOMETHING YOU'VE GOT TO BE VERY CAREFUL BECAUSE WHEN IT GOES ALL OF A SUDDEN THAT'S WHEN YOU GET INJURED. WE'RE JUST GONNA GIVE IT A LITTLE TAP, AND WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO IS WE'RE GONNA PUT A LITTLE SILICONE. YOU DON'T WANT TO GOOP IT IN THERE BECAUSE WHAT'LL HAPPEN IS WHEN YOU TIGHTEN IT IT'LL SQUISH IN THE HOLE BUT YOU WANT TO GET ENOUGH SO THAT IT SEALS. WE ALWAYS APPLY A GOOD COAT OF RTV TO THE WATER PUMP BOLTS. STICK ONE IN IT LIKE THAT. THESE BOLTS OFTEN PASS THROUGH TO THE COOLANT SYSTEM, AND COOLANT WILL LEAK OUT IF THE BOLT'S THREADS AREN'T SEALED TIGHT.

ALL RIGHT, PUMP'S IN. PUT EVERYTHING BACK IN THE WAY IT CAME OFF. NICE HUSTLE! AND IT GOES OVER THE TOP OF THIS AND UNDERNEATH THIS ONE, AND OVER THE TOP OF THIS ONE. THEN WE RELEASE THE TENSION. TADA! TWIST HER BACK ON. HOSES, WATER PUMP, BELT, BASICALLY WE'VE GOT TO FILL IT WITH COOLANT AND WE CAN START IT. ROCK AUTO DOT COM OFFERS MANY COMMON AND SPECIALTY AUTOMOTIVE FLUIDS, MAKING IT A TRUE ONE STOP SHOP.

THEY EVEN HAVE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE DRIVING MORE ENJOYABLE, LIKE THIS REPLACEMENT AIR CONDITIONER CONTROL KNOB. AND NOW CHRISTIN AND HER DAD CAN LOOK FORWARD TO MANY SAFE MILES IN HER FIRST SET OF WHEELS.

(CHRIS)>> SEEMS TO RIDE A LOT BETTER. MAKE SURE YOUR BRAKES ARE WORKING GOOD BEFORE WE GET TO THE STOP SIGN. OH YEAH, WE'RE STOPPING.

(NARRATOR)>> UP NEXT A SET OF BUDGET FRIENDLY RACE READY SEATS FOR THE CAMARO.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE BACK AND WRAPPING UP THE COOLING SYSTEM WITH THIS STEAM VENT CROSSOVER FROM TRICK FLOW. ITS JOB IS TO ALLOW AIR POCKETS TO ESCAPE FROM THE FRONT WATER JACKET IN THE HEADS TO AVOID STEAM POCKETS, WHICH IS A HOT SPOT. THE FACTORY FAN SHROUD IS BEING REUSED. IT ATTACHES TO THE CORE SUPPORT IN THE STOCK LOCATION. THE FAN WE'RE USING IS AN 18 INCH FLEXALITE WE ORDERED FROM SUMMIT RACING. A JONES RACING FAN SPACER WILL GET IT CORRECTLY POSITIONED IN THE FAN SHROUD. FOR EASE OF ALIGNMENT I'M USING ARP STUDS TO SECURE THE SPACER AND THE FAN. THE CORE SUPPORT IS LEANING FORWARD BUT ONCE THE FENDERS ARE INSTALLED THE FAN WILL BE INSIDE THE SHROUD. WITH THE CORNER CARVING THEME OUR CAMARO HAS WE NEEDED A SET OF SEATS DESIGNED TO KEEP OUR BACK SIDES IN PLACE. FOR THAT WE ORDERED THE MOST AFFORDABLE FIA APPROVED RACING SEATS THAT MONEY CAN BUY. THE QUALITY IS NOT SACRIFICED. THESE ARE CORBEAU FORZA SPORTS, WHICH ARE A FIXED BACK DESIGN. UNLIKE OTHER FIA APPROVED SEATS THESE CAN BE MOUNTED IN EITHER A SIDE MOUNT OR BOTTOM MOUNT CONFIGURATION. ENERGY ABSORBING FOAM IS USED, AND THEY WORK WITH THREE, FOUR, FIVE, AND SIX POINT SAFETY HARNESS SETUPS. THEY'RE DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WITH A 38 INCH WAIST OR SMALLER. ON THE BOTTOM IS A MOUNTING BRACKET WE ORDERED SEPARATELY. LUCKY FOR US IT IS TO MOUNT THESE SEATS INTO A '70 THROUGH '81 CAMARO. SO THIS WILL BE A 100 PERCENT BOLT IN SETUP. THE RIDE TECH SAFETY HARNESSES NEED TO BE FINISHED FIRST. THE LAP BELTS WILL BOLT DIRECTLY TO THE ORIGINAL SEAT BELT LOCATIONS. THEY ARE REINFORCED AREAS ON THE FLOOR PAN. THE SHOULDER BELTS WILL ATTACH TO THE HARNESS BAR. MAKE SURE THE STRAP IS DOUBLE THREADED TO AVOID LOOSENING AT THE MOUNTING POINT. NOW THE NEW SEATS ARE GOING IN. THE BRACKETS WERE SPOT ON. I'M USING ARP FASTENERS TO SECURE IT TO THE FACTORY LOCATIONS IN THE FLOOR PAN. NEXT THE BELTS CAN BE PASSED THROUGH THE SEATS, WHICH IS THE FINAL STEP TO KEEP US IN PLACE ON THE TRACK. WHEN YOU BREAK OUT THE GREASE GUN YOU MIGHT AS WELL GRAB A RAG CAUSE IT'S GONNA GET DIRTY, AND KEEPING THE COUPLER ON THE ZIRK FITTING WHILE PUMPING THE GREASE GUN CAN BE A JUGGLING ACT BUT NOT ANYMORE. THIS LOCK N LUBE GREASE COUPLER HAS A UNIQUE SLIDING SLEEVE AND THUMB LEVER, ALLOWING YOU TO LOCK IT IN PLACE. ONCE LOCKED NO HANDS ARE NEEDED TO HOLD IT ON THE ZIRK. IT WON'T LEAK EITHER THANKS TO A LOCKING JAW AND SEAL. WHEN YOU ARE DONE GREASING SIMPLY PUSH THE LEVER, REMOVE IT FROM THE ZIRK, AND YOU ARE DONE. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON ANY OF THE PRODUCTS WE USED IN TODAY'S SHOW LOG ON TO POWERNATION TV DOT COM.

(PAT)>> IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL THAT GIVES THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF VEHICLE DATA LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE MATCO MAXIMUS THREE POINT ZERO.

IN THE ENGINE POWER SHOP PAT AND I BUILD SEVERAL ENGINES EVERY YEAR.

NOW THE OTHERS JUST KIND OF HANG OUT REAL QUIETLY OUT IN THE HALLWAY ON ENGINE STANDS.
