At one time, if you wanted big horsepower in your Mopar muscle car or truck, your choices were limited to a big-block swap or a coveted Hemi. At the very least, you needed different engine mounts, K-members, transmissions, headers, etc. – and Hemis have never been cheap!
But now there’s another way to get more horsepower: boring and stroking your Mopar small-block to get more cubic inches – up to 476 cubes! The small-block Mopar is one of the easiest engines in which to increase displacement without extensive modifications or specialized machine work – the engine was practically designed for more cubes! This book shows you how to get that big-cube power, and then it shows you how to optimize the small-block’s other systems – induction, heads, valvetrain, ignition, exhaust, and more – to make the most of the extra cubic inches.
