Performance Handling for Classic Mopars
by Tom Condran

How to Build Big-Inch Mopar Small Blocks

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. Author Jim Szilagyi is a Performance Specialist for Dodge Motorsports and Mopar Performance Parts. In this book he covers building big-inchers from Mopar 318/340/360-ci LA or Magnum 5.2/5.9-liter engines, using both factory and aftermarket parts. If you want to make big power from your Mopar small-block, this is the book for you.
