    In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine
    swap project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two
    years later, we finally get Mike Finnegans Mopar-powered Tri-Five on
    the road, but not without a few problems along the way. Blown head
    gaskets, frayed wires, and severe sleep-deprivation are all overcome
    as Finnegan, Freiburger, and friends push to get this polarizing
    project car running again in time for an epic road trip.The
    BlaspHEMI 55 Chevy rides on a Jim Meyer Racing Gasser tube chassis
    with Viking coilover dampers and Firestone Cheater slicks out back.
    Up front the car has a tubular straight axle, parallel leaf springs
    and tires small enough to fit on a VW Bug. The rear axle is a Johns
    Industries 9-inch with 5.431 gears. The Hemi began life as a 528ci
    Mopar crate engine, which Finnegan rebuilt with a 0.030-inch
    overbore, ported aluminum heads, and a Comp Cams solid roller cam.
    The mill is topped off with a Hilborn stack injection system with
    EFI controlled by a FAST EFI ECU. An Aeromotive Stealth fuel tank
    and pump provides the fuel while MSD provides the spark. The engine
    is backed by a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual gearbox with an
    American Powertrain installation kit and a twin-disc clutch. The car
    was wired with a Speedwires kit and the guys built their own
    fenderwell headers using parts from Hedman. To save weight, the
    original steel front clip was swapped out for a lightweight
    fiberglass tilt front end from Unlimited Products and the windows
    were replaced with lexan parts from ProGlass.
