Mopar Books and Movies
This book explains how to choose the ideal heads, cams, intake, and carb for a complete top-end performance package. In addition, the author discusses and explains the building of a stroker engine. When going fast, you must be able to stop, so substantial brake upgrades are a necessity. All the stock disc upgrades and aftermarket offerings are included, including Baer and Wilwood systems.
Author Andrew Finkbeiner explains how to fabricate, as well as install, subframe connectors and upgrade K-frame members.
A number of weight-saving techniques that vastly improve handling and performance are revealed. Finkbeiner also goes into detail on how to select proper performance components, upgraded steering boxes, overdrive transmissions, clutch, exhaust, electrical system upgrades, and so much more. This B-Body performance guide is a must-have for Mopar aficionados.
The video covers what blueprinting is, why and how to check lifter rotation, the pros and cons of hydraulic, solid, flat tappet and roller camshafts, how to measure for correct pushrod length, reversion, fuel fall out, air speed, power valves, quench, detonation, camshaft degreeing with a timing chain and gear drive, how to adjust valves, how to use and tune with an O2 sensor, how to figure out how much initial and total timing your motor wants, how to use a dial back timing light, how to curve a distributor, why float level is important, and how to fire a motor for the first time.
How to Build Max-Performance Hemi Engines details how to extract even more horsepower out of these incredible engines. All the block options from street versus race, new versus old, and iron versus aluminum are presented. Full detailed coverage on the reciprocating assembly is also included. Heads play an essential role in flowing fuel and producing maximum horsepower, and therefore receive special treatment. Author Richard Nedbal explores major head types, rocker-arm systems, head machining and prep, valves, springs, seats, porting quench control, and much more.
How to Build Max-Performance Mopar Big Blocks. The reciprocating assembly (crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons) is examined in detail. Cylinder heads and valvetrain configurations are crucial for generating maximum horsepower and torque. This volume discusses all the stock modification options, the best setups, selecting the right machine work, the latest aftermarket head options for producing huge horsepower, and building stroker engines. The camshafts and lifters chapter compares and contrasts use of hydraulic flat tappet, hydraulic roller, and solid flat tappet cams. The book also details engine builds at 600, 700, 800, and 900 horsepower levels with real-world component packages.
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.
