Ian’s 318 Mopar motor was rebuilt to stock specs.
This 408 small block was destined for a ’68 Barracuda.
This is the motor that powered Dave’s GTX in 2007. The all aluminium 572ci HEMI produced upwards of 800hp.
A winter rebuild saw the HEMI gain some colour after being powder coated ready for the 2008 season.
As you can see the 383 of Martin’s Charger came to us a little worn out and in need of some attention.
The engine was fully rebuilt with forged pistons, an M/P cam, a Holley intake and an Edelbrock carb.
This 440 features an hydraulic cam, unported Edelbrock heads, a single plain intake and a double pumer carb. Dyno tests resulted in 480hp at 5400rpm and 500ft-lbs of torque at 4100rpm. The engine was destined to power a four speed ’71 Plymouth Barracuda.
This new 440 engine was built and fitted with Edelbrock heads, forged pistons and an hydraulic cam. It was outputting between 475 to 500hp. The pictures below show the engine as it neared completion, with the final one showing it on the test rig.
