Rebuilding a Destroyed ZR1 Corvette Part 2

Rebuilding a Destroyed ZR1 Corvette Part 2
I be this is my puppy Remy also known as REM Alishan Ranch you do good book be dope she's all wet she's been out playing in the wet grass well I'm off the race my name is Matt and today we're hopefully gonna drive a

Corvette

this is the 1990

Corvette

zr1 go rockets and we had an overheating issue that we overheat in like five minutes and we found out it's because these fans would not turn on there was a burned up wire so they weren't getting power fix the wire and they still wouldn't turn on you could tell that the motors are burned up as well and we were told that this thing had some water damage probably just burn up these motors and then that motors burned up which burned up the wire so we pulled these out and with it we had to pull out the radiator and oil cooler we also know that even the vase model c4

Corvette

s are they're prone to overheating I had a 1995 it would overheat in Texas whenever I was sitting at a light when we weren't moving it would start getting really hot so I figure a zero one probably does it even more so we decided while this was out why don't we go ahead and upgrade the radiator as well okay first we have new fans and you can see the difference these are upgrades this is this go high disco for comparison old new these things are a little bit bigger diameter slightly bigger but they're supposed to flow like twice as much air as these stock fans and this little shroud there and it's pretty cool it has...

these little flappers here so when you're sitting and not moving and the fans are going they close up to suck all the air through here but when you're driving it blows them open to allow more air to pass through our radiator you can see new verse old our new one is about twice the width of this one what that means air passes through this radiator you can see through there it means we have about twice as much surface area for that heat to be exchanged as the air blows through here so twice as thick and it has the all aluminum end caps here whereas this one is plastic so that just will be better for longevity won't crack and leak as soon as this one will much better radiator better fans this thing should cool much better than stock and way better than it did when we took it out because it didn't cool this is my friend Brian he is discos owner and Brian and I went to school growing up together college together we were roommates he's my car buddy thanks for helping me play this in my garlic okay we think we got it figured out I was putting these things on backwards the first time these little aluminum strips on our new fan but I think we got it figured out we got these in here thanks to mayor she was able to get her fingernails in there and do that so we actually can get them stuck on this is ready to go in but furious P just showed up with the tacos are you here to help or you just here to eat tacos I'm here to both moral support and you fuel you know...
rebuilding a destroyed zr1 corvette part 2
through calories you brought you brought us tacos yeah I think I know someone else who really wants to talk how much do you know about working on cars well I'll tell you one thing good stories I used to have this Ford Probe GT in university yeah and it worked fine the radio was a little bit monthly because the antenna was always down yeah it was it must be like an electrical you know supposed to go up on its own one of these mine has the opposite problem it never goes down oh really I think you're supposed to call a doctor if it stays up for that long but well haven't called one yet so anyways one day I decided hey I want clear radio I want like a clear Sam yes yes ID I'll Drive it a Ford Probe GT got the GT bro you know windows about that I pulled over a lot of times because people thought oh selling drugs I pulled it out one day and that was the last day my car worked you pulled one out the antenna sorry like you unwired it you're gonna fix it I don't know I literally want to just yanked it and I just pulled it out so that you're not sticking out and that's the that was the last time the car works no luck whatsoever you know Pete maybe maybe you don't have to help us today just bring the tacos to the car mix we're hoping it make sounds today we'll see when we get there I think we have everything put back together so that is our new fan other fan and this bracket goes and hooks to our new radiator which is right there beautiful...
rebuilding a destroyed zr1 corvette part 2
new all aluminum giant radiator that you can't see it all totally invisible but we have everything back in there everything hooked up we're going to test it first now so if we can turn on these fans by kind of hot-wiring them that's what Pete recommended we do thank you no problem so we'll see we get those things on you feel that air coming through both fans are on and suck it this sucks totally suck you take it forever to start last time - and we just we emptied the gas and put it did you put gas in this time when we started up before it was smoking so much I mean it's got a good wind in here but maybe it was just really bad gas before yes this thing was owned by a guy named mattress Mac so everyone in the comments is suggesting we just call it Mac I like it Mac the zr1 yeah I like it too we are smoking a little bit up here but we did a bunch of stuff so probably just some excess fluids we had on there our fans are not actually on right now they come on when it gets hot so we're gonna wait to see they should pick on on their own good oil pressure our oil temp is showing a little bit of reading there a water temp is doing very good so this is I mean I would love for it to stay below half here the other day when the fans weren't working it went all the way up over well it got right to 260 and then I got scared and turned it off hopefully it gets nowhere near to 60 while it sits here and idles it sounds really good still smoking so it definitely...
needs some things but can't wait just look at that thing how cool is it right yeah my zero one all right we are taking her on the road today assuming she doesn't overheat I think it overheated in like between five and ten minutes last time so I think if we get to ten minutes and we're still nice and cool all's well temperatures halfway up and our fans just kicked on which is good I want it to hold right there I hate to interrupt you but we have a problem it's leaking that's cruel and bummer I'll see where we're leaking from I see it dripping whatever we just did not feel something all the way or if we left something open there's your problem right there so that one that is hooked right here is just loose we didn't tighten it up all the way so I'm gonna tighten that and I think we are good to go again so far so good we topped her off put a little more water in it so hopefully we're good now two minutes since we started or back up still hang in right there in the middle of our temperature so we're gonna give it five more minutes just to be sure if it doesn't budge in five minutes I'm driving this thing it's been five minutes we're good to go but I was thinking these windows don't roll down I mean they're supposed to but they just don't the AC also doesn't work it's gonna be very hot in here and it is a beautiful day outside there's one thing I can do check this out oh I just unhooked the...
roof it comes off yeah buddy look at that thing now that's a sports car right there we are going to take it for a try now yeah let's do this seatbelt for safety we're rolling we're doing it yeah smokey it's fine almost stalled totally fine okay we're on the road well it everywhere I don't know how fast I'm going to they have no speedometer oh I should check the brakes and don't worry but they stop it needs a little more noise a little burning oil fine stuff a little pressure yeah I'm down to the a what I'm doing it yeah and there's not a bunch of smoke behind me this is great all's good here should have clean the windshield a little better don't you have it a frickin Co mud yeah man oh yeah this is good I used to have a 1995

Corvette

this is the 1990 it's the same body style but this is the zr1 it was the better one obviously my 95 is in much better condition than this one but ever since I sold that car I missed it I missed I don't know why most people don't like look at this here hi dear most people don't like c4

Corvette

s are kind of ugly they have that 80s and 90s styling I always liked him I always thought they're cool plus they're fairly lightweight cars that they got from decent right and they got needs and handling and they're good cars I just thought with little more horsepower we can make this thing a great car oh man we don't have any carpet down on the side or like insulation so...
it's the tunnels get a little warm but our temperature gauges is still showing everything's doing great this engine is running well just wanted to check her out make sure everything looks good don't eat that tired anything crazy going on everything looks good the tires are actually new the guy who I got it from was wanting to fix it up and so he has new tires but then he just never ended up getting it fixed up so he never drove it and we're back for his b/c the brakes work the brakes work we made it back in one piece - she didn't die I didn't oh good need some need some things but all good let's stay here and a birdie Texas air damn look the weather oh wow like nice try but hey I didn't see you either it has a weird bog in the upper end so I was trying to like shift into like second and then third to get it going oh man I got my

Corvette

dirty but hey she ripped in the dirt in the dirt we just need a maker someday to her so rip on the pavement that's the plan nice muddy tire here so I was when I was flooring it I was feeling it like die down like we were losing power and I know what that is we opened this up and this thing has these two runners for every single cylinder so this is where air goes in there but every other one has a valve in it and I guess that Valve probably opens it like wide open full throttle but ours are locked closed they're like kind of like jammed or rusted shut so we are only running on half of these things and I...
think our car is kind of going in the limp mode as well because it knows something is wrong so it's like not giving us full power we have to take everything a

part

to figure out why those things are jammed shut and then hopefully be able to run on full power I tried to do first a donut or a burnout on concrete but you can see my attempt well you actually can't see it cuz I didn't do a good enough burnout it just squealed the tires a little bit but it looked not very cool so we're like let's go out to the grass and do it the dirt and it's still like I would get it going oh cool you loved it right Pete get it going and then it would just die I kept that I was killing it the ECU was what was actually killing it so I was like yeah blub and they were just died and I would lose all power and it would end my drift in the dirt so just imagine like what I did like it would have looked 10 times more epic it wasn't my fault this is a car spot long story short we need to do a lot of taking a

part

of this engine we've been ordering a lot of

part

s this is the one I'm most excited about and most confused about because I ordered headers for it and I don't know how they're both in this tiny box cuz it doesn't seem like they would fit let's find out well guys Pete and Mel would say let's find out Hey oh they got little extensions that's how they fit in here look at these things why do our headers have wires that do sensors I guess sweet...
there's a Canadian flag there there's another one there and there's another one right there hey Mel Mel look at my eyes did you do that No did you see how divine y'all why else would they just show up it was you is it was it really wasn't y'all hi it's so hard to not believe you because I've never seen these flags until you guys came in town maybe they've been here for like a month and you guys have it just notice the because you guys you're good at figuring out liars are they lying Canadians are such good liars though maybe this is the passenger-side header check that thing out this is the header and they're stainless they are two-inch primary tubes look how they're oval to their perfectly matched thing is so cool so obviously that's not going on today but soon here is all the stuff we have ordered so far so lots of stuff in the future for the old zr1 we are in bunker branding 2.0 now we just actually filmed a furious peak video I'm gonna have to let you guys go watch that we were eating wings not gonna tell you who won it for me you never know we're up here with a big crew of competitors well I haven't actually showed you guys all of this I'll give you I'll give you this look at it right now it's really dark and then we will be back here in the daytime sometime soon show you all the changes in our warehouse bunker branding 2.0 is shaping up link in description to the furious Pete video whenever it...
