440 Big-block Samurai: From the Junkyard to the Road!

Apr 15, 2019 on YouTube at 6:00 PM


Back on Episode 78 of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich built the Super Sammy—a junkyard-rescued Suzuki Samurai that they crammed a 440 Chrysler big-block into right where it sat in the middle of the junkyard. Now they’re back to actually ... (more)hit the road and find out why Suzuki never offered this engine combination from the factory. After some minor fixes and replacing the stock rearend with a better-fitting yet still undersized match for the 440, they make the Super Sammy “roadworthy” and head out for adventure. Will the police agree with the guys’ acceptable level of roadworthiness? Will the new rearend make it 500 miles without exploding? Will Dulcich tame the ThermoQuad and make the Sammy do epic burnouts? Find out the answers to all of these questions, and more, in this junkyard road trip adventure on this episode of Roadkill!
