  • This is my Angry Bird

    Build #1 Failed the next day. The ball got dropped on the cam bolt, between zzp forgetting to send my new one in my kit, and me and my friends forgetting the cam and timing set was only "mocked" up...

    To anyone interested, here's the original build thread.

    GT2 Cam, Heads milled .025" and 5 angles on the valve job.

    Build #2 failed after 3 weeks of daily driving. A second GT2 cam, stock heads with beefed up valve train. Apparently a piston had a crack I couldn't see from the last build, it shattered one night and put two holes in my block and took out 3 connecting rods.

        cool - hot rodding a v6
        There's another guy on here doing all sorts of insanity with his 6 bird
        Doing it all wrong since 1966

          Probably talking about Warshrike? I know of him from a couple of the V6 forums were both on. His car is pretty sick.

            yep, that's the one. I have a fascination with 6s as well - twin turbo'd versions

              Challenging to build big power from smaller engines, especially ones that don't have huge aftermarket support. Good work. Here's to number 3 hanging in there a while longer.

                I've had bad enough luck with this mild NA build, would never try boosting it haha

                You've seen Tim King's 8 second V6 Firebird right?

                @ Scott, thanks sir!

                  Apparently my old cam doesn't give a flying #### about coming out of the old block

                  +1 Humanpower

                  Who gives a #### about Horsepower, when you can gave 2 Humanpower???

                  New S-10 Torque converter in.

                            Actually the 2nd time I didn't pull it. I did everything in the car :O

                            I broke a ground strap taking it out this time, cheeky bastard.

                              The mess in the oil pan

                              Gonna start addressing some rust while everythings out. Both sides look like this. Hitting them with a wire wheel.
