Dyno Results

Replacing the heads, cam and intake on the Demon low-buck 454 resulted in some serious power. Where the original low-buck combination offered peak numbers of 445 hp and 542 Ib-ft, adding the aluminum Profiler heads, XE284H cam, and Edelbrock intake upped the peak numbers to 564 hp and 542 Ib-ft. Even more power is available with wilder cam timing and or more compression, but the increased cam duration would sacrifice low-speed power, mileage, and throttle response. The big-block offered more...

Lug Dyno Challenge

Out a solid 559 rear-wheel horsepower helped by a nudge from a Nitrous Outlet 150 shot. Dan Neinstadt thought he had Nick covered, but a tiny slip of the M T 315 35-17 ET Street tires put him an ego-bruising 1 hp short. Rick Adams earned style points for knocking out 531 naturally aspirated horsepower, while Rod Strumbel's supercharged Ford was close behind with 510 horses to place Fourth. While it wasn't worth any extra points, it was Randy Johnson's colorful Camaro that earned the top...

Tech Notes

Who Fred Kappus What 67 Dodge Dart Where Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Be sure to sample a pint or two of Leinenkugel's Big Butt Doppelbock while you're there. Engine A 400 is a B- (rather than RB) block with a 4.340-inch bore and, originally, a 3.38-inch stroke. Fred tells us he chose this platform because the blocks are less expensive than RBs, and the lower deck height means he can make bigger headers fit better inside the cramped engine compartment of his A-body. Bored 0.030 inch and with a...

The Fun Part

Once we chased all the surface rust away and sprayed the entire engine compartment with Rust-Oleum rusty metal primer topped with satin-black paint, it was time to start the construction phase. Much like with our early Chevelle, we also discovered that interlocking safety motor mounts wouldn't clear the stock frame mounts, necessitating the use of our original mounts. We also learned that the headers would fit from underneath if we lifted up one side of the engine about 3 inches using the...

Whats Your Problem

Flow bench testing is an easy way to discover how bore size affects airflow and performance. If you want to increase the airflow of even a simple small-block Chevy cylinder head, just change the test bore size adapter from the 305's 3.735-inch diameter to something like the 400's stock 4.125-inch bore. This could be worth 10 cfm at max flow. If you watch closely when cylinder head companies state their flow numbers, the smart ones will use a larger bore to improve the flow numbers. Flow bench...

Later, one-piece rear main seal engines that would allow you to run factory-style hydraulic roller camshafts. You could still convert to a hydraulic roller camshaft, but it would be more expensive because you would have to purchase the retrofit aftermarket hydraulic roller lifters. These are much more expensive than standard production hydraulic roller lifters. Given that option, we spoke to Jim Hall at Tuned Port Induction Specialties (TPiS), a company that has loads of experience building...
