The Dart SHP short-block was equipped with flat-top pistons that combined with Dart Pro 1 heads with 62cc combustion chambers. For those into blowing, nitrousing, boring, or stroking this engine, CarTech SA Design has published what may be the ultimate hop-up book: We were also able to remove the lifters for the cam change without having to remove the heads. Of course the Scat crank, rods, and JE pistons were a big part of the equation, but the EFI produced hp at 6, rpm and lb-ft of torque at 4, rpm.

The stock GT40P springs must be upgraded when going to a longer-duration cam.

It turned out we were conservative on both counts. The engine was only rated at hp but at least had 9. Photo Gallery View Photo Gallery.

The remainder of the motor was stock from the 60mm throttle body to the factory oil pan. Even with stronger valvespring pressure, these lifters worked flawlessly. I prefer to receive internal offers and promotions. gests

For the induction side of our test, we used an Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap dual-plane intake combined with a Holey cfm mechanical secondary carburetor. Once again we employed a stroker assembly, but this one came in the form of a Dart SHP stroker assembly.

Displacement ci Bore 4. Because this engine only made hp, we might have made the same power with a smaller cfm carb.

Carb Displacement ci Bore 4. Tesrs the larger Lunati cam—again, no other changes. The same can tewts said of hp combos making hp and hp motors that make nowhere near hp.

Twsts are more expensive than standard head gaskets, but they also do the job and are worth the additional money. We simply removed it from the wrecking yard and made the necessary modifications to run it on dyon engine dyno. Actual dyno test figures are provided as are specific details on test engine specifications used in each run. Subscribe to Print or Digital! By the Numbers We started with a ,mile 5.

In normally aspirated trim with a Holley EFI system, 90mm Accufab throttle body, and Crane Gold rockers, the injected stroker produced hp at 6, rpm and lb-ft of torque at 5, rpm.


Yank a motor out of the junkyard, clean it up, add a camshaft, intake, and a carburetor and see how much power we can squeeze out of it. But what we were most impressed with was the solid gain in torque over the smaller Voodoo cam from 3, and up.

Eventually, this motor would see over 1, hp in turbocharged form. Forged components ensured plenty of strength, since we later ran both boost and nitrous on these combinations. While the heads were off getting a massage, we turned our attention to the cam timing.

The multiple-layer steel construction allows the gasket to conform to movement between the cylinder head and block while maintaining a good seal. Complete results from over 2, dyno pulls Literally tens-of-thousands of dollars worth of dyno test results provided in this book.

How about which mass air meter yields the biggest gain? EFI Displacement ci Bore 4.

We tried two different Lunati Voodoo hydraulic roller cams. One way to stay within budget on an upgrade like this is to reuse the stock hydraulic roller lifters. First off, our stock 5.
