How to Build New Hemi Performance on the Dyno

Optimal Parts Combos for Max Horsepower

Hemi. The word conjures up visions of racing and street domination. Widely regarded as one of the greatest American V-8s ever produced, Chrysler released its third-generation version of the engine in 2003 and installed it in a wide range of Chrysler cars and trucks. Through the years, the 5.7, 6.1, 6.2 Hellcat, and 6.4 Hemi engines have established an impressive high-performance reputation that builds on the proud heritage of the engine family. Most stock Hemi engines produce an impressive one horsepower per cubic inch, but they can make substantially more torque and horsepower for specific applications. Fitted with the right high-performance parts, these powerful engines can produce far more horsepower and torque than stock. Selecting the ideal parts for the engine and application is essential. Veteran author and dyno testing expert Richard Holdener has done the research, gathered the data, and provided a detailed analysis of the results. Within the pages of this book, heads and camshafts, headers and exhaust, intakes, throttle bodies, manifolds, electronic engine controls, forced-air induction, and nitrous oxide are all tested. Using this comprehensive information and the dyno results, you can select the best performance parts for your engine and application. Each test provides a thorough description of the parts, test engine, and testing conditions, plus evaluation and insight into the results. Tests from budget to high-end engine builds are conducted to fit a wide spectrum of applications, so you can apply the testing data and results to your specific build project. Horsepower and torque graphs illustrate dyno test results for clear comparisons. In turn, it takes all the guesswork out of selecting parts, which saves you time and money. Although the New Hemi produces excellent performance in stock form, it’s just the starting point. With the right parts, you can build the most potent street, street/strip, or full-race engine. Whether you’re building a mild street Hemi, a race engine, or something in between, this book is a valuable resource.

Mustang 2005-2010: How to Build and Modify

View: 4148

When the new 2005 Mustang was launched, Ford's fifth-generation pony car combined classic early-fastback styling cues with a potent drivetrain and upgraded suspension in a well-appointed package. Scores of customers flooded into dealerships and more than 500,000 were sold by 2010. By revisiting its history, Ford set a new direction for the Mustang that continues today, and in doing so, it also redefined the modern muscle car landscape. Several years after the launch of the new classically styled Mustang, the retro Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro entered the market. However, the Mustang has sold in far greater numbers. Automotive writer Jacob Amatisto explains how to extract the ultimate performance from each component group of the 2005-2010 Mustang designated the S197, so you enjoy a quicker, more responsive handling and vastly improved car. Amatisto provides insightful and comprehensive guidance for planning and installing a complete performance package. Suspension is the key to harness the potential of the Mustang. Selecting and installing the ideal coil-over shocks, tubular control arms, and sway bars for the front suspension provide a substantial handling and road holding improvement. Upgrading the solid axle rear suspension with an aftermarket Watts linkage helps mitigate tramping and delivers far better control. To increase engine output, more air must be drawn in and out of the engine, so the leading exhaust systems and cold-air intakes are reviewed. But that's just the start to higher engine performance. The range of Roots and centrifugal superchargers offer enormous and cost-effective power increase, and are covered here. The current crop of high-performance aftermarket heads and how to obtain more performance through porting stock heads are discussed. Large aftermarket throttle bodies, high-capacity fuel injectors, and other fuel system upgrades are offered to support those modifications. Hand-held engine controllers for remapping the ignition system are reviewed so you achieve the ideal combustion ratio. The best aftermarket forged piston, rod, and crankshaft packages are also reviewed. In addition, transmission, nitrous oxide, turbocharger, rear differential, interior upgrades, chassis, electrical, wheels, and tires are all covered. A stock Mustang is a blank canvas for you to create a high-performance masterpiece. But you need expert guidance for selecting, installing, and calibrating the best parts combination. Whether you're installing suspension parts, intake and heads, power adders, cams, or other parts, this volume provides the detailed information and instruction you need.

All My Porsche Races

Category: Sports & Recreation

Page: 276

View: 2581

Derek Bell’s name became inextricably linked with that of Porsche during his long and hugely successful career as a racing driver. In this new 276-page book, Bell collaborates with renowned motorsport author Richard Heseltine to give the reader a very personal insight into his experiences racing for the legendary German marque. The approach taken by this latest publication from Porter Press International is to look at every race Bell drove for Porsche, in detail and with revealing comments from the book’s subject. Light is cast on Bell’s most prestigious victories with Porsche - four of his five in the Le Mans 24 Hours, three in the Daytona 24 Hours, two in the World Sportscar Championship - and many more besides. Bell describes the Porsches he raced, from the fearsome 917 to the iconic 956, 962, and 911. And he shares his thoughts on the now-legendary drivers he raced with, including six-time Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx, the famously flamboyant Hans Stuck, and two immense talents who lost their lives to the sport, Jo Siffert and Stefan Bellof. The overall effect is a fascinating trip back in time to a golden era for Porsche and sports car racing as a whole.
