Hey Jared, love this build and you ended up steering me to a part I needed for my swap (the American Autowire bulkhead connector) so thanks for that. I was just curious what transmission is going in this. I think you might have covered it already but I did not have time to go back and watch the video's to figure it out. Thanks.

Excellent video Jared! Especially interesting to note which lines are output and return on the LS engine since it is such a popular beast to to swap. Cannot wait to see you and your wife out and about in your date night supra!

Please add foam tape to the backside of the trans cooler to keep it from rubbing a hole in the radiator. On another note: I'll take that "tiny" p/s cooler.

Curious about the trans cooler. You said nipples never down, but that’s how every GM truck has them mounted.

Most Ford vehicles have them pointing down as well. Including every F350 4x4 commercial truck I've ever worked on.

Given the heat, is the shot at 14:02 editing or tripod/grip melting? :) My money remains on melting :D

There are so many people who don’t think about their dogs paws I was at a local lake that has a sand beach it was so hot that day the sand felt molten, So I didn’t bring my dog. Anyways this woman was walking down to the water carrying her friends baby and walking her dog across the sand her dog was whining about the heat and fell over crying and she just tried to drag the dog across the sand. I wasn’t there but my family said this and my dad had to go up and carry the dog because of how hot the sand was. Once they got back from the water to their area they didn’t even check on the dogs paws. It sickens me what people make their pets deal with out of stupidity and ignorance my girl has had her paws burned on cooler surfaces than that, and I also see people walking their dog on tarmac on a hot day if you don’t think that’s a problem walk barefoot on tarmac.

do radiator cooling fans typically push air out the front grill? I always assumed they'd be in a pull formation rather than push.

These fans are setup in pull, they pull the air through the radiator

4:00 is a transmission cooler and is sized pretty big. 15:50 is a power steering cooler and it is plenty for this application, some just use 3 ft of steel line in a zig zag under the car. .

The missing sign was hilarious! And I love how you crack on Tavarish, I love you both, such a great team! We're doing our first LS build very soon as well, It's awesome seeing this International with an LS I love this project! Being in Florida a little bit South of Tavarish and having no AC I totally understand! Just moved my Mach 1 Turbo project to my buddies shop because he installed air conditioning! Totally worth it in this kind of heat!

"Mid engine" I am in complete disappointment, and my night is ruined.
Bob Roberts
Bob Roberts 3 månader sedan
@John Armstrong Is a 1970 Corvette mid engine? This truck has about the same engine setback. Are you saying that GM is lying when they say that the 2020 is the first production mid engine Corvette? Read my detailed post below. I like the work and vid production however, this isn't by any stretch of the imagination a " mid engine " truck. I've provided a breakdown below however would deffer to a definition by the SAE. This truck has about the same engine set back as a Corvette from the 70's , MG Midget , Triumph Spitfire TR5 , Dodge Viper. This truck is front engine with a bit of setback. I judge it like this, take the wheelbase and find the F to R center point. Then take the F axle center line to the center point you have found and find the center of that then the same for the rear. ( There will now be 3 points along the length of the wheelbase that I'll call 1 , C , 2 . ) FA----1----C----2----RA If the forward most spark plug hole ( or injector if diesel ) is ahead of the front axle, it is a front engine. ( like most any American engine in the front, driving axle in the rear car in the past 70 years ) If the forward most spark plug hole is between the front axle and point 1, it is front engine with setback. ( Like a 70's Corvette ) If the forward most spark plug hole is between 1 and C is it front mid engine. ( Like a Panoz LMP-07 , Indy cars from the 40's / 50's ) If between C and 2 it is rear mid engine ( Like ?? ) If between 2 and RA it is mid engine. ( Like a MR2 , 914 , X19) If behind the rear axle it is rear engine. ( Like a 911 )

Well the engine is mounted behind the front wheels and in front of the rear wheels so #technicallycorrect

Am I the only one whose brain hurts trying to figure out if the truck is massive or if the motor just sits super far back and super low?
Bob Roberts
Bob Roberts 3 månader sedan
This truck is a standard full sized truck, replacement engine sits low and pretty far back compared to the stock one. They are calling it mid engine but it isn't.

You keep talking about no air conditioning in the shop with two big ducts visible in the frame? Surely a fan in the area is an A/C technician who can get you fixed up on the cheap.

Hey Jared, with all the fabrication that you’ve been doing so far, have you been using metric or imperial hardware? I know the truck should be all imperial originally but was curious if you use metric with the things you add.

Why? Do you believe he has too much power? A "high rise" would take care of that.

Ricky Corp Well, at least you got the part right about staying up all night editing hours of footage that come with each episode. I’ve been involved in audio and video production for my all of my career and when Jared and Freddy needed an editor, I offered to help. And I’ll let you in on a another bit of Wrench Every Day trivia: Jared is married to my daughter :)

Duane Harms I pictured a recent film school grad sitting in a dark room lit by black light pounding energy drinks throughout the night while editing the hours of footage these guys probably shoot. That’s not a knock on your editing skills, but just what I must have imagined in the back of my mind during the time lapse shots dubbed with a mix of techno and metal.
