    Why not make it a bit easier for viewers to find the parts of your Video's in a Series. Maybe a bit of common sense like TITLING Tesla V8 Swap, Tesla V8 Swap #2, Tesla V8 Swap #3, Tesla V8 Swap #4. I ended up watching 2, 3 & 4 out of order, and will most likely NOT watch another video of yours.

    Aren't you guys worried about His Greatness (Lord Elon Musk) in his infinite wisdom dispatching elite assassins to excecute you guys before you can fire up that treasonous internal combustion engine in a Tesla (the 4 wheeled embodiment of perfection)? Some uber-Tesla-fanboys might consider this the ultimate form of heresy and might take it upon themselves to form a vigilante posse to prevent this LS swap from going any further. Y'all are brave.

    I love how tesla people get so butthurt over gas cars. They always say the same things " but it has instant torque, no v8 can touch it". Who gives a shit. I'd take 10 hellcats or ls cars that sound badass and are a little slower anyday. Not everybody wants an electric car. You know who drives a tesla? People who can't build an engine.

    VIDEO SUGGESTION: Rumor has it that Elon won't back silver, yes the shiny white metal that has been money for millennia and what you would throw your bartender for another shot of whiskey some 120 years ago while making your assistant wash your wagon. Silver also happens to be a HUGE part of making electrical components and rumor is that there is 1kg of silver per model S tesla. Elon going long on silver would actually hurt Tesla, driving up the cost of the production of Teslas as they project to 50 fold their production by 2030. HOW MUCH SILVER IS IN A FRICKIN TESLA? Is Elon really pumping crypto so that production costs stay low? Video Idea: Strip down a Tesla model S, take all parts with Silver and extract them into a bar. Maybe collaborate with Sreetips and make some Silver bars and stamp it with Rich Rebuilds and then auction that on ebay. Reading this comment is a contractual obligation to pump my channel if you use this idea, 100% legal no joke.

    Hey Rich, chances are slim you will see this but gonna try anyway. I work at Detroit speed, we build classic cars with mostly LS power plants. So the 2nd gen camaro doesn't have a ton of room for dual 3" exhaust, how do we fix it? Well, we cut the floor out and raise the exhaust up for ground clearance then we build the floor back around the exhaust. With how much you're having to modify the floor, this might be a solution for you as well. Move those rails further out and stuff the exhaust as close as can to the trans and the driveshaft.
