Boatkill! The Muscle Truck-to-Boat Extreme LS Engine Swap! – Roadkill Ep. 36



On this episode of Roadkill, the boys are back to kick off Season 4 with their most epic engine swap to date! This time Finnegan and Freiburger drag an old Rogers Bonneville jet boat to a local Southern California lake behind the Muscle Truck, a lowered 1974 Chevrolet C10 pickup that’s powered by a Chevrolet Performance LS6 crate engine. Once at the lake, they proceed to remove the engine from the truck and install it into the boat, hoping to do a little drag racing during the Tom Papp Memorial boating event. As usual things don’t go as planned but the guys still manage to have fun involving an outhouse, shower curtains, scummy water and a trailer hitch. Oh yeah, did we mention that after going boating Finnegan and Freiburger still had to take the engine back out of the boat and re-install it into the truck to get home?

    Window cranks are cheaper than Chinese clamp pliers. A removal tool is even cheaper if you wanna steal them from another window crank vehicle. Most will work regardless of year.

    Wait. Are they writing on a paper istead of a plank or directly on the car at 3:22? Or am i just hallucinating?

    They have some crazy premises for these show but in the end these are some talented guys. The fact that they can bring these forgotten vehicles back from the dead in the timeframes that they do it is nothing short of impressive. I recently discovered this show and have been on a marathon since. Totally inspired to go make something fun. Thanks for putting these online for everyone to enjoy and keep it up.

    Just discovered this show a few days ago, and my god it's the best thing I've come across in a long while. I don't think I've ever been sitting and saying "Oh god…" and chuckling as much as I have the past few nights. Truly great stuff.
