(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY WE'RE DOING A SIX LITER LS ENGINE SWAP FROM A SALVAGED GMC 2,500 IN TO OUR 1971 C-10 CHEYENNE. WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO EXTRACT AND PREPARE THE ENTIRE DRIVETRAIN FOR THIS TRUCK HEART TRANSPLANT. IT'S ALL TODAY HERE ON TRUCKS!

(KEVIN)>> HEY, WELCOME TO TRUCKS. WELL DOES THIS LOOK FAMILIAR? IT SHOULD, IT'S THE SAME COLOR, BASICALLY THE SAME TRUCK AS THE SECOND CHANCE SILVERADO. AND AT FIRST GLANCE, WELL IT LOOKS LIKE A PRETTY GOOD USED VEHICLE.

(RYAN)>> AND JUST LIKE THE SECOND CHANCE SILVERADO, WELL SOMEBODY DECIDED TO PUT THEIR TRUCK IN THE DITCH, DO A LITTLE OFF ROADING, AND WELL THEY WIPED OUT THE ENTIRE SIDE OF THIS THING. BUT UNLIKE THE SECOND CHANCE SILVERADO, WELL WE DON'T HAVE ANY INTENTIONS OF FIXING THIS THING UP AND MAKING IT A DRIVER AGAIN BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE ANY USE FOR THE ENTIRE TRUCK. WHAT WE'RE AFTER IS UNDERNEATH THE HOOD.

(KEVIN)>> THE ENGINE, IT'S A SIX LITER TRUCK LS SERIES ENGINE. IT'S AN IRON BLOCK WITH ALUMINUM HEADS, BUT IT IS NEARLY BULLETPROOF AND THE POWER POTENTIAL IS INCREDIBLE. AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE GUYS OVER AT HORSEPOWER DID A SIMPLE CAM AND INTAKE SWAP AND GOT NEARLY 400 HORSEPOWER OUT OF THE STOCK ENGINE. SO YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY SEE WHERE THE POWER POTENTIAL LIES IN THIS PLATFORM. THROW A COUPLE OF SPEED PARTS AT IT, THROW A TUNE AT IT, AND BAM, WE'RE COMPETING WITH A VINTAGE BIG BLOCK AT A FRACTION OF THE WEIGHT AND TONS OF BETTER FUEL ECONOMY. SO TODAY'S SHOW IS ALL ABOUT SHOWING YOU GUYS HOW TO

EXTRACT WHAT YOU NEED FROM A MODERN TRUCK AND DO THE

POPULAR LS SWAP FROM A MODERN PLATFORM INTO A CLASSIC PICK UP. SO LETS TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT WE'VE GOT. THE TRUCK NEEDS A BUMPER, TAILLIGHT, IT NEEDS A BED

SIDE AND A WHEEL FLARE. THEY PROBABLY FACTORED IN THE COST OF A SPRAY IN BED LINER AND A TOOL BOX. OBVIOUSLY IT NEEDS A BUNCH OF WORK BACK THERE, IT DOESN'T STOP. UNISIDE, DOOR, HANDLE, PROBABLY THE GLASS AND SIDE TRIM. UP FRONT WE HAVE, OF COURSE IT NEEDS A FENDER, THE WHEEL FLARE, MAYBE SOME SUSPENSION DAMAGE BECAUSE IT WAS TIPPED OVER ON ITS SIDE, BUT CHECK THIS OUT. THE WINDSHIELD IS NOT EVEN CRACKED EVEN THOUGH IT'S ON ITS SIDE. THIS TELLS YOU THERE'S NO REAL MAJOR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE. CHECK THIS OUT AS WELL. BOTH AIR BAGS ARE PERFECT AND INTACT. AND AS A MATTER OF FACT THE INTERIOR LOOKS BRAND NEW. SO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED HERE IS THAT THE INSURANCE COMPANY DECIDED THAT IT WOULD COST MORE TO FIX THAN WHAT THEY THINK IT'S WORTH.

THEIR LOSS, OUR GAIN BECAUSE THIS IS THE PERFECT PLATFORM FOR THE LS ENGINE SWAP WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT. AND YOU MAY BE SAYING TO YOURSELF, SELF, WHERE WOULD I GET MY HANDS ON A TRUCK LIKE THIS. WELL CHECK OUT THESE GUYS.

(RYAN)>> KNOX AUTO PARTS IS LOCATED NOT TOO FAR FROM US IN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE. AND IT'S FULLY STOCKED WITH RACKS AND RACKS OF ENGINES, TRANSMISSIONS, AND TRANSAXLES. BUT IT'S NOT JUST DRIVETRAIN PARTS. THEY'VE GOT BUMPER COVERS, DOORS, COMPLETE BEDS, EVEN

ACRES AND ACRES OF COMPLETE VEHICLES WAITING TO BE DISASSEMBLED OR SOLD AS COMPLETE VEHICLES WAITING TO BE REBUILT. ONCE THE VEHICLES ARE BROUGHT INSIDE, THEY'RE DISMANTLED AND THE PARTS ARE RECYCLED AND READIED FOR RESALE. NOW SPEAKING OF PARTS, WELL THEY COME WITH A STANDARD SIX MONTH WARRANTY, BUT THEY ALSO HAVE A 12 MONTH PARTS AND LABOR WARRANTY AVAILABLE.

(KEVIN)>> EVERY DISMANTLED PART IS CAREFULLY LOGGED INTO AN ELECTRONIC DATABASE, SO THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS ON HAND. NO MORE SENDING A GUY OUT TO THE BACK OF THE YARD TO SEE WHAT'S ON THE LOT. NOW WE COULD HAVE GONE WITH JUST A COMPLETE EXTRACTED

ENGINE, BUT OUR SWAP IS A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED BEING THAT WE'RE INSTALLING A NEWER ENGINE INTO AN

OLDER VEHICLE PLATFORM. SO WE OPTED TO GET ONE OF THESE. THIS WAY WE CAN HARVEST ALL THE PARTS WE NEED FROM A COMPLETE AND RUNNING DONOR VEHICLE, SAVING OURSELVES

A LOT OF TIME AND A LOT OF MONEY.

(RYAN)>> NOW OUR SIX LITER LQ FOUR, STARTS RIGHT UP AND RUNS GREAT.

WE KNOW IT DOES, WE DROVE IT INTO THE SHOP. NOW IT DOES HAVE 129,000 MILES ON IT, BUT YOU GUYS KNOW THESE LATE MODEL ENGINES, WELL THEY'RE JUST GETTING STARTED

AT THAT MILEAGE AND THEY'RE NOWHERE NEAR NEEDING ANY MAJOR WORK. IN FACT, THIS THING MAKES 300 HORSEPOWER AND 360 POUNDS OF TORQUE IN STOCK FORM. AND FOR THE PRICE WE PAID FOR IT, WELL IT MAKES IT THE PERFECT CANDIDATE TO SWAP INTO OUR 1971 CHEVY.

(KEVIN)>> A LITTLE BIT OF ROYAL PURPLE SPRAY LUBE ON

SOME RUSTY FASTENERS HELPS THEM BACK RIGHT OUT.

NOW WE COULD HACK THIS SYSTEM UP BUT WE'RE TRYING TO DISMANTLE IT AND KEEP EVERYTHING INTACT, BECAUSE AFTER ALL, THIS IS A LATE MODEL TRUCK WITH A NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM COMPLETE WITH CATALYTIC CONVERTERS, AND THIS STUFF CAN BE RESOLD. IT'S VOLUMINOUS! YEAH, THAT!

(RYAN)>> THANK YOU!

(KEVIN)>> YEP!

(RYAN)>> ALRIGHT, DRIVESHAFT.

(KEVIN)>> NOW OUR DRIVESHAFT IS NOT GOING TO BE REUSED, BUT WE NEED A PART OFF OF IT. SO HERE'S A TIP FOR YOU GUYS THAT DON'T HAVE A TRANSMISSION TAIL SHAFT PLUG SET. SO WE DON'T MAKE A MESS PULLING THE TRANSMISSION OUT, WE'RE JUST GOING TO TAKE THE YOKE OFF THE DRIVESHAFT THAT

BELONGS IN IT AND STUFF IT BACK IN SO WE DON'T LEAVE AN ATF TRAIL ACROSS THE SHOP. TO DO THAT WE'RE GONNA USE THIS HANDY ATTACHMENT THAT GOES IN THE AIR HAMMER FROM MATCO. MAKES THIS JOB REALLY FAST AND KINDA FUN.

(RYAN)>> A ZIP TIE OR PIECE OF WIRE WILL KEEP THE YOKE IN PLACE. NOW WE ARE GOING TO BE REMOVING THE ENGINE MOUNT

SUPPORT BRACKETS, BUT WE'RE NOT REMOVING THEM COMPLETE RIGHT NOW. OTHERWISE THE ENGINE WILL CRASH INTO THE CROSS MEMBER. SO WE PULLED ONE BOLT OUT COMPLETELY AND PARTIALLY REMOVED THE SECOND.

WE DID THAT ON BOTH SIDES UNTIL WE COULD GET AN ENGINE HOIST IN PLACE TO RELIEVE SOME OF THE

PRESSURE ON THE BRACKETS. ONCE THAT'S DONE, WE'LL REMOVE THEM COMPLETELY. NOW WE'RE ALSO REMOVING THIS BOLT IN CROSS MEMBER CENTER SECTION SINCE WE'RE PULLING THE ENGINE AND TRANS AS A UNIT.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCKS. WELL WE'RE PULLING A FUEL INJECTED VEIGHT OUT OF A LATE MODEL SIERRA AND PREPPING IT FOR INSTALLATION IN BETWEEN THE FRAME RAILS OF OUR '71 CHEVY. NOW IF YOU'RE NOT BUYING A COMPLETE WRECKED TRUCK LIKE WE ARE FOR YOUR ENGINE CONVERSION AND INSTEAD YOU'VE PURCHASED OR WANT TO PURCHASE A SWAP OUT DRIVETRAIN FROM THE WRECKING YARD. WELL THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT IT TO LOOK LIKE. THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION BOLTED TOGETHER, THE WIRING HARNESS COMPLETE AND UNCUT WITH THE PCM. YOU ALSO WANT THE FRONT ENGINE ACCESSORY DRIVE

SYSTEM WITH EVERYTHING. YOU WANT THE EXHAUST MANIFOLDS AND COOLER LINES. BASICALLY EVERYTHING YOU CAN GET. THAT'LL JUST SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY DURING YOUR SWAP.

NOW LIKE WE MENTION, THIS IS THE LQ FOUR VERSION OF GM'S LATE MODEL SIX LITER. THEY ALSO MADE A HIGH OUTPUT LQ NINE THAT HAD A HIGHER COMPRESSION RATIO AND MADE A LITTLE BIT MORE

HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE.

BUT THEY DIDN'T MAKE THAT MANY OF THEM, THEY'RE HARDER TO FIND, AND SUBSEQUENTLY A LITTLE BIT MORE EXPENSIVE. NOW DEPENDING ON WHAT VEHICLE YOU GET YOUR LQ FOUR OUT OF, WELL THEY MAKE ANYWHERE BETWEEN 300 AND 325 HORSEPOWER. OURS IS BACKED UP BY A FOURL-80-E FOUR SPEED AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION THAT SHOULD BE MORE THAN UP TO THE TASK OF BACKING UP A HEALTHY SIX POINT ZERO. NOW WITH THE ENGINE OUT AND THE INTAKE OFF, WELL WE CAN SEE WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF SMALL OIL LEAKS TO DEAL WITH

AND THERE'S SOME CARBON BUILD UP IN THE PORTS. THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF.

NOTHING MAJOR, BUT WHILE THE INTAKE'S OFF WE MIGHT AS WELL. NOW I CAN'T DRIVE HOME THIS POINT ENOUGH. FOR EVERYTHING YOU GET AND FOR THE PRICE THESE THINGS COST,

WELL IT'S A BARGAIN THAT'S TOUGH TO BEAT. YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ONE FOR YOUR TRUCK.

(KEVIN)>> NOW THERE ARE A BUNCH OF PARTS WE'RE GONNA KEEP AROUND AFTER THE TEARDOWN, ESPECIALLY THE DONOR TRUCK ITSELF BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT'S GONNA CROSS OVER WITH THIS ENGINE SWAP. CASE IN POINT, THE RADIATOR ITSELF, IT'S A BETTER DESIGN WITH CROSS FLOW REPLACEABLE TANKS, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE PORTS FOR THE COOLING SYSTEMS. BECAUSE IF WE CAN UTILIZE THE COOLING SYSTEMS IN THESE MODERN COMPONENTS WITH THE MODERN ENGINE IN A CLASSIC VEHICLE JUST LIKE SUPER DUALLY, WELL WE'VE GOT A BETTER SYSTEM AND A BETTER ENGINEERED SYSTEM. SOME THINGS GET BETTER OVER TIME, LIKE THESE COOLERS. THERE'S A COOLER FOR EVERY SYSTEM ON THIS TRUCK. SO IF WE CAN USE THEM, WE'RE JUST BETTER AHEAD. AND IT'S ALSO RELATED TO AESTHETICS. THIS PLASTIC COVER BOLTS RIGHT TO THE TOP, IT IDENTIFIES IMMEDIATELY AS A NICE, COOL, MODERN EFI ENGINE. AND LIKE WE SHOWED YOU BEFORE, STEVE TRACY AND THE BOYS DOWN AT ADVANCED PLATING CAN CHROME PLATE THIS PLASTIC STUFF, OR IT CAN BE PAINTED, OR WHO KNOWS, DARTH VADER HAT. AND THAT'S THE FUN OF HOT RODDING. NOW TO MAKE THIS ENGINE RUN IN YOUR CLASSIC, YOU'VE GOT SOME GREAT OPTIONS. THE SIMPLEST ONE BEING GET A LS CONVERSION INTAKE MANIFOLD THAT'LL ACCEPT A CARBURETOR AND YOU'LL FIND AN AFTERMARKET IGNITION BOX TO RUN THE COIL PACKS AND YOU'RE READY TO ROCK. THE NEXT OPTION IS TO GET AN EFI SYSTEM LIKE THIS FAST THAT'S STILL BRAND NEW READY FOR SOME FUTURE UPGRADE. THIS GIVES YOU THE BEAUTY OF ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION WITH THE SIMPLICITY OF BOLTING ON A CARBURETOR. AND AGAIN, IT'S A VERY SIMPLE AND VERY EFFECTIVE SYSTEM. OR YOU CAN TAKE THE ORIGINAL SYSTEM AND DO THE RESEARCH AND HOME WORK IT TAKES TO FIGURE OUT WHAT ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS YOU NEED AND WHAT SYSTEMS YOU DON'T NEED. FIND A WAY TO REFLASH THE COMPUTER AND DO IT ON YOUR OWN. IF YOU'RE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT, THERE'S LOTS OF

PLACES YOU CAN SEND THE WHOLE MESS TO. THEY'LL DO IT FOR YOU FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY. NOW YET ANOTHER OPTION IF YOU'VE GOT MORE MONEY THAN TIME IS JUST TO SPRING FOR A COMPLETE ELECTRONICS INTERFACE FROM THE AFTERMARKET THAT NOT ONLY GIVES YOU CONTROL OVER THE ENGINE FUNCTIONS BUT ALSO THE TRANSMISSION, MAKING IT TRULY PLUG AND PLAY. NOW WE'VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT REFLASHING THE COMPUTER. THE REASON YOU WOULD HAVE TO REFLASH THIS COMPUTER IS JUST TO SIMPLIFY IT BECAUSE THERE'S SYSTEMS BUILT INTO A MODERN VEHICLE THAT YOU JUST AREN'T GOING TO NEED WITH A CLASSIC. FOR INSTANCE THE ANTITHEFT SYSTEMS, YOU JUST DON'T NEED IT.

YOU CAN PARE IT DOWN AND MAKE IT MORE EFFICIENT, AS WELL AS IT GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO GET INSIDE THE ENGINE PARAMETERS AND TUNE FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE, EVEN INTO THE TRANSMISSION CONTROLS FOR A HIGHER LINE PRESSURE FOR MORE OF A PERFORMANCE FEEL. THE BOTTOM LINE IS, THE OPTIONS ARE NEARLY ENDLESS AND IT'S JUST UP TO YOU WHAT DIRECTION YOU WANT TO GO.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOP, WHERE WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF PREPPING OUR LATE MODEL EFI VEIGHT FOR INSTALLATION IN BETWEEN THE FRAME RAILS OF OUR OLD '71 CHEVY SHORT BOX THAT USED TO HAVE A CARBURETED 454 BIG BLOCK IN IT. NOW IN THE PROCESS WE'VE REMOVED THE EFI WIRING HARNESS. CAUSE LIKE KEVIN TOLD YOU, IT'S EITHER GONNA GET STRIPPED DOWN, CLEANED UP, AND SIMPLIFIED, OR IT'S GONNA GET REPLACED WITH AN AFTERMARKET SYSTEM. WE'VE ALSO ZIP TIED SOME OF THE POWER STEERING LINES OUT OF THE WAY JUST TO CLEAN THINGS UP A LITTLE BIT AND MAKE INSTALLATION THAT MUCH SIMPLER. NOW SPEAKING OF INSTALLATION, WELL IT DOESN'T TAKE ANY CUT OFF WHEELS, GRINDERS, OR WELDERS TO GET THIS THING TO FIT BECAUSE THE AFTERMARKET HAS FULLY EMBRACED THESE LS ENGINES AND THEY'RE READY TO DROP THESE THINGS INTO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING WITH FOUR WHEELS, INCLUDING OUR OLD TRUCK, WHICH IS ONE OF THE MORE POPULAR PLATFORMS. NOW TO LOCATE OUR ENGINE WE WENT TO HOLLEY AND PICKED UP SOME OF THEIR HOOKER ENGINE SWAP PLATES. NOW THESE ARE AVAILABLE IN A VARIETY OF CONFIGURATIONS. THEY ALLOW YOU TO EITHER MOVE THE ENGINE FORWARD OR BACK, OR UP, OR JUST LEAVE IT IN THE STOCK LOCATION. WHATEVER FITS YOUR APPLICATION, AND THEY'RE AVAILABLE IN A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT STYLES. THEY CAN ACCEPT THE STANDARD THREE BOLT STYLE SMALL BLOCK ISOLATOR OR THE CLAM SHELL DESIGN THAT SOME VEHICLES USE. THEY'RE LASER CUT THREEEIGHTHS THICK PLATES READY TO ACCEPT COUNTER SUNK FLUSH MOUNT HARDWARE AND THEY'RE DRILLED AND TAPPED TO ACCEPT THE ISOLATORS. NOW THESE POLYURETHANE ISOLATORS WILL TRANSMIT A LITTLE BIT MORE ENGINE VIBRATIONS INTO THE FRAME THAN THEIR RUBBER COUNTER PARTS. BUT ON AN OLD PICK UP TRUCK LIKE OURS, I SERIOUSLY DOUBT WE'LL EVEN BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE. ALRIGHT, NOW EVEN THOUGH OUR NEW ENGINE IS READY, WELL OUR OLD TRUCK ISN'T READY FOR IT. LIKE WE TOLD YOU, THIS THING HAD A GAS GUZZLING BIG BLOCK IN IT. SO OF COURSE IT'S GOT THE BIG BLOCK FRAME MOUNTS AND WE NEED

TO REPLACE THEM WITH A COUPLE OF SMALL BLOCK FRAME MOUNTS. ALSO WE WANT TO DO A LITTLE HOUSE KEEPING, GET RID OF SOME OF THE 40 ODD YEARS OF FUNK, GREASE, AND GRIME THAT'S BEEN BUILDING UP ON THIS THING AND CLEAN IT UP BEFORE WE COVER IT UP. NOW DOING AN ENGINE CONVERSION IS OBVIOUSLY A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THAN JUST MAKING IT FIT IN THE FRAME RAILS. THERE'S OTHER THINGS WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DEAL WITH. WE'RE GONNA NEED TO DO SOME CUSTOM EXHAUST WORK TO ADAPT OUR OLD PIPES TO OUR NEW MANIFOLDS. WE'LL PROBABLY NEED A NEW DRIVE SHAFT, WHETHER FROM A JUNKYARD, FROM A CUSTOM SHOP LIKE DENNY'S. FOR A FUEL SYSTEM WE CAN RUN THE TANK THAT'S IN CAB AND RUN AN EXTERNAL FREE MOUNTED PUMP. BUT WE'LL PROBABLY END UP GETTING A NEW TANK WITH THE PUMP BUILT IN JUST TO SIMPLIFY THINGS. NOW FOR POWER STEERING WE'RE GONNA DITCH THE OLD VBELT STYLE PUMP AND USE THE ONE THAT COMES MOUNTED ON THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE.

NOW SINCE THIS TRUCK HAD AIR CONDITIONING ORIGINALLY, THAT'S A SYSTEM WE DEFINITELY WANT TO KEEP. BUT AGAIN WE'RE GONNA GET RID OF THE OLD COMPRESSOR AND USE THE ONE THAT CAME ON OUR DONOR SIX-0. THAT'S THE REASON WE GOT A COMPLETE ENGINE. NOW THIS SOUNDS LIKE A BUNCH OF WORK AND THERE'S NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT, IT IS, BUT IT'S GONNA BE WORTH IT IN THE LONG RUN. AND IT'S KINDA LIKE EATING AN ELEPHANT, ONE BITE AT A TIME.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK. NOW BEFORE WE PUSH OUR '01 GMC 2,500 OUT OF THE SHOP AND INTO THE WAREHOUSE WE WANT TO SALVAGE A COUPLE MORE PARTS OFF THIS THING. LIKE THE HYDRO BOOST BRAKE BOOSTER AND MASTER CYLINDER SETUP. NOW THERE'S A FEW REASONS WE WANT TO DO THIS.

FIRST OF ALL, IT'S ALREADY TIED INTO THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND SHOULD BE FAIRLY EASY TO PLUMB. BUT IT ALSO PROVIDES A LITTLE BIT BETTER PEDAL FEEL THAN A VACUUM BOOSTER AND WELL, THE BOOSTER'S NOT THIS BIG AROUND. SO THERE WON'T BE ANY CLEARANCE ISSUES WITH OUR NEW ENGINE SWAP, AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS MAKE IT WORK IN OUR '71.

(KEVIN)>> HERE'S ANOTHER REASON TO KEEP THE DONOR TRUCK AROUND. THIS SEAT IS IN GREAT SHAPE, AND THE FLOORS TO BOTH TRUCKS, OUR '71 AND THIS NEWER TRUCK, ARE SIMILAR SO MOUNTING SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM. AND IF YOU'VE EVER WANTED THE SAFETY OF SHOULD HARNESSES IN A VINTAGE TRUCK, WELL IT'S BUILT INTO THE SEAT HERE. THERE'S NO SURGERY TO THE PILLARS, NO WELDING INVOLVED, IT IS SIMPLY A BOLT IN OPERATION. IT'S A BENCH SEAT WHEN YOU WANT IT, THERE'S GOOD STORAGE, AND IT COMES WITH SOMETHING THAT THAT OLD TRUCK NEVER, EVER DID, GOOD CUP HOLDERS. POWER PROBE IS SOMETHING WE USE A LOT IN THE TRUCKS SHOP, AND THEY'RE NOT JUST SITTING ON THEIR HANDS OVER THERE. THEY HAVE IMPROVED IT THE HOOK. THE HOOK MEASURES AND DISPLAYS AMPS ON THE POWER UP, DISPLAYS

RESISTANCE, SUPPLIES UP TO 65 AMPS OF CURRENT, AND EVEN

ACTS AS A RELAY TESTER. THEY'VE ALSO ADDED A SUPER BRIGHT LED FLASHLIGHT, AND WE CALL IT THE HOOK BECAUSE NOW IT DOESN'T HAVE TO LAY ON THE FLOOR. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON WHAT THIS TOOL IS CAPABLE OF GO TO POWER PROBE DOT COM AND CHECK OUT THE ULTIMATE CIRCUIT TESTER. NOW YOU'VE SEEN US USE ROYAL PURPLE ON A TON OF PROJECTS

HERE AT THE POWERBLOCK, BUT ROYAL PURPLE PRODUCTS ARE

AVAILABLE FOR MUCH MORE THAN TRUCKS. THE TCW 3 IMPROVES PERFORMANCE

AND DECREASES WEAR. THE SYNTHETIC TECHNOLOGY KEEPS SPARK PLUGS AND EXHAUST PORTS CLEAN FOR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY. THE MULTIVIS 30 FOUR STROKE OIL WILL KEEP UP WITH THE DEMANDS OF ANY INBOARD OR OUTBOARD ENGINE RECOMMENDING A 10-30 OR MULTIVISCOSITY MARINE OIL. BOTH OF THESE PRODUCTS UTILIZE ROYAL PURPLE'S SYNERLEC TECHNOLOGY AND MAXIMIZE THE PERFORMANCE AND LIFE OF YOUR TWO CYCLE OR FOUR CYCLE ENGINES. OBVIOUSLY THE FUNCTION OF A SPARK PLUG IS TO IGNITE THE

AIR AND FUEL MIXTURE IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER. WELL ETHREE CLAIMS TO INCREASE PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY WHILE DOING THAT VERY THING. ETHREE'S PATENTED DIAMOND FIRE TECHNOLOGY HAS THIS UNIQUE DIAMOND SHAPED OPENING THAT PROMOTES A

MORE EFFICIENT BURN. NOW ETHREE'S PRETTY CONFIDENT ABOUT THEIR CLAIMS AND THEY BACK THEM UP WITH A FIVE YEAR, 100,000 MILE WARRANTY ON THEIR PRODUCTS. SO THE NEXT TIME YOUR CHANGING YOUR PLUGS, YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER SOME ETHREES. YOU CAN GET THEM AT ALMOST ANY AUTO PARTS STORE. IF YOU'VE GOT ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ETHREE OR ANYTHING YOU'VE SEEN ON THE SHOW, CHECK US OUT AT POWERBLOCK TV DOT COM. SEE YOU NEXT TIME!
