Some time ago, I posted an engine rebuild in time-lapse video of a Triumph Spitfire motor. In case you want to see what that looks like, click here. Well the history of Triumph engines is not exactly “stellar”. You see, Triumph engines are not much more than glorified tractor motors. In some cases, they started life as pump engines. Want to piss off a Triumph purist? Tell them their engines are tractor motors!! 😯
So back to today’s post… My friend Michael sent me an email today with a very interesting link. The link points to a YouTube video showing a rebuild of a classic Chrysler HEMI engine. No tractor or pump engine folks! This is the real deal; truly legendary stuff. So kick back, and enjoy.
There is so much to see in this video. I’ve watched it many times and every time I see something new. But most impressive is:
- The Intake – the intake plenum and runners are all made from scratch from tubing. Those long runners are for a reason: produce torque.
- The exhaust – check those tubes!!
- The empty cans of beer – beer good!
- The green MG Midget – pump motor anyone? LOL!
This is an awesome video. Thanks Michael!!
Incidentally, custom intakes and custom exhausts… Been there done that. My cousin Jim made both intake and exhaust from scratch in bowtie6:

Saving the best for last… Here is a Chevy engine rebuild in time-lapse video…
Long live the Chevy Small Block!!
Somebody please give me a cigarette! 😉
