Hey guys gameboy3800 here once again, bringing you another vehicle engine mod! This hits pretty close to home for me this time around, as this brings my real life truck engine(ish) into the world of BeamNG.Drive!
This mod adds the legendary Chevy 454 Big Block motor found in a ton of classic cars, work trucks and hot rods! The version featured in this mod is a very tame work truck motor, designed for highway hauling of heavy trailers. 7.4 litres of displacement give a ton of torque very low down to help it tow. When not loaded with cargo though, it's an incredibly fun street engine!
This Engine has a couple key intakes from its 1990s real life counterparts: a Throttle Body Injection setup (TBI), and the slightly newer Vortec setup. The TBI is known for being absolutely bulletproof, while the Vortec is known for its higher power! There's a ton more parts than that to mess around with, so feel free to mess with the parts tuning to find what you like best!
There's a couple of presets included so you dont need to add the engine in the parts menu every time. One's a 2door worktruck inspired preset closely resembling my IRL truck just because its neat, and the others an extended cab with 4wd for some off-roading!
This engine features custom sounds that are a blend of my Real truck's custom side pipes and some 8 year old muscle car sounds found in a variety of other beam mods. The end result is quite mean! I tried to get the full range of the real engine, but my audio recording equipment never gave satisfactry results. I may update this in the future.
That about covers everything about this mod! It took a long time to get it to where it is today. I'm sure theres some more ideas that'll come to me in the future to improve it, but for now I think it's ready to be set free!
I hope you enjoy! See you in the future!
