PROJECT CARS

    Project ’68 Valiant
    We take a look inside Chrysler’s A727 Torqueflite transmission and see what it takes to make one invincible at TCI Automatics Transmissions.

    Project Max Effort Cougar
    There are multiple performance and safety factors to take into consideration when building a maximum effort fuel system for the track. We turn to the folks at Earl’s and Eastwood to get the job done right.

TECH

    545ci Big-Block Ford Hemi
    Engine masters Todd Miller and Eric Simone revive the classic 429 “Shotgun” Ford Hemi using a production 460 block and bolt-on heads from TM Enterprises.

    Aluminum Ford Windsor Block
    The Ford Windsor 351 is a very popular choice as the basis for a performance engine, but it is lacking in any strength areas. Ford Racing’s all-aluminum Z351 block may be the best choice!

    Header Dyno Test Truth Squad
    We use a 427ci big-block Chevy on the dyno to explore header parameters such as primary tube diameter, primary tube length, ceramic coating versus paint, and header collector extensions.
