Engine Power; "Happy Birthday Hemi"

How-to build an original 426 Hemi to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Chrysler's iconic Elephant big block.

(COURTNEY)>> THE THUNDERBOLTNICKNAME MAY HAVE COME FROM

A TRIBUTE TO THEWORLD WAR TWO P-47

THUNDERBOLT AIRPLANE.

MORE ON THIS TRIBUTE TO ONEOF THE MOST AMAZING ERAS IN

THE HISTORY OF FORDRACING COMING UP.

RIGHT NOW LETS SEND IT OVERTO ENGINE POWER FOR THIS ALL

NEW EPISODE.

(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAYON ENGINE POWER WE'RE

CELEBRATING THE 50THANNIVERSARY OF THE LEGENDARY

426 BIG BLOCK HEMI.

WE'LL SHOW YOU ITS HISTORYAND WHERE IT'S GOING BY

BUILDING AN INDYCYLINDER HEAD 572 HEMI.

(MIKE)>> WELCOME TOENGINE POWER AND THE SHOW

FOR THE CHRYSLER LOVERS.

TODAY WE'RE NOT ALONE.

INDY CYLINDER HEAD'S RUSSFLAGLE AND KEN LAZZERI, THE

HEMI SPECIALIST, ARE HERE TOHELP US CELEBRATE 50 YEARS

OF THE ICONIC ENGINENICKNAMED THE ELEPHANT.

WE'RE GOING TO BUILD A 572CUBIC INCH SUPER STREET HEMI

TO CONTINUE THE LEGEND,AND THEY BROUGHT

THE HARDWARE TO DO IT.

BUT FIRST TAKE A LOOKAT WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

AND WHERE IT'S HEADING.

THE 426 HEMI DEBUTEDIN 1964 WITH ONE SOLE

MISSION, TO WIN RACES.

YEARS EARLIER DRAG RACER TOMHOOVER HAD LED A GROUP OF

ENGINEERS WHO MODIFIEDCHRYSLER'S R-B BLOCK 426 MAX

WEDGE WITH THE COMPANY'SEARLY HEMI HEAD DESIGN.

THE RESULT, AN UNPRECEDENTEDEIGHT NASCAR WINS FOR

RICHARD PETTY AND HIS426 HEMI PLYMOUTH.

SMALL WONDER THAT RIVALPROTEST LED TO A NASCAR

BAN ON HEMI'S FORTHE 1965 SEASON.

SO MOPAR SENT THE 426 RACEHEMI TO THE DRAG STRIP.

DON GARLITS USED THEMIN N-H-R-A QUARTER MILE

COMPETITION AND WAS THEFIRST RACER TO BREAK THE 200

MILE AN HOUR BARRIER.

(MIKE)>> THE BEST PLACE TOEXPERIENCE THE HERITAGE OF

RACE HEMI CARS IS ANOSTALGIA RACING EVENT.

AT THIS BAKERSFIELD,CALIFORNIA, HOT ROD REUNION

FANS COULD GET UP CLOSE ANDPERSONAL WITH SOME OF THE

MOST FAMOUS HEMI POWEREDRACE CARS OF THE '60'S AND

'70'S, LIKE DON GARLITS'FAMED SWAMP RAT AND TOMMY

IVO'S BARN STORMER,FIRST CAR TO RUN

A SEVEN SECOND E-T.

IN 1966 CHRYSLER MADE ITS426 STREET HEMI AVAILABLE AS

AN OPTION FOR B-BODYDODGES AND PLYMOUTHS.

LESS COMPRESSION THAN THERACE VERSION AND A MILDER

CAM, STILL THE ELEPHANTMOTOR WAS RATED

AT 425 HORSEPOWER.

CHRYSLER DISCONTINUED THE426 HEMI IN 1971, BUT THERE

WAS NO STOPPINGHEMI HYSTERIA.

AT EVENTS LIKE THE MOPARNATIONALS YOU COULD SEE THEM

BLOWN IN SEVEN SECOND RACECARS OR AS PART OF MILLION

DOLLAR RESTORATIONS.

THEIR WERE ONLY NINE HEMICUDA FOUR SPEED CONVERTIBLES

MADE IN '70 AND '71.

THIS LUCKY GUY OWNS THEFIRST AND LAST ONES MADE.

WHEN MOPAR LAUNCHED THELATEST GENERATION IN 2003

IT WAS WELCOME BIG HIT.

ALTHOUGH LOADED WITHTECHNICAL CHANGES AND

FLATTER AND MORE COMPLEXHEADS, IT'S STILL A HEMI AT

HEART, AND PART OF THELEGACY THAT BEGAN IN THE

GLORY DAYS OF ENGINE POWER.

SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEMI.

(ANNOUNCER)>> UP NEXT WESTART THE BUILD OF A 572

HEMI WITH THE GUYS THAT AREKEEPING THE LEGEND ALIVE.

WAS 14 YEARS OLD, HE GOT TO

STRAP INTO A THUNDERBOLTDRAG CAR WITH THE LEGENDARY

"CALIFORNIA FLASH",AND HE WAS HOOKED!

NOW THE OWNER OF HIS OWNBODY SHOP, HE DECIDED TO

BUILD HIS VISION OF THETHUNDERBOLT AS A TRIBUTE

TO THESE RARE ANDULTRA LIGHT RACE CARS.

HE FOUND A '64 FAIRLANETHAT HAD BEEN IN

A BARN FOR 35 YEARS.

IT TOOK A YEAR TO RESURRECTTHE BODY BACK TO LIKE NEW.

HE DROPPED IN A 453 SMALLBLOCK STROKER COMPLETE WITH

TRICK FLOW WEDGE HEADS,A COMP CAM, AND ROLLER

ROCKERS, ANDEDELBROCK DUAL CARBS.

OUT OF THE ORIGINAL 100FACTORY THUNDERBOLTS BUILT,

ONLY 60 ARE KNOWNTO STILL EXIST.

WE'LL MEET THEBUILDER-OWNER OF THIS

TRIBUTE COMING UP, RIGHTNOW BACK TO XTREME.

(ANNOUNCER)>> POWERNATIONIS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MICKEY

THOMPSON PERFORMANCE.

STREET, STRIP, TRUCK, OR OFFROAD, MICKEY THOMPSON MAKES

TIRES AND WHEELSFOR ALL YOUR NEEDS.

(MIKE)>> SO NOW YOU KNOWTHE HISTORY OF THE HEMI AND

HERE'S WHY WE ASKED THESEGUYS TO CELEBRATE WITH US.

(RUSS)>> WELL IN HIGH SCHOOLMY BROTHER AN I, FRED, WE

WERE ACTUALLY AMATEURDRAG RACERS AT BEST.

AND WE'D JUSTWORKED ON OUR HEADS.

AND THAT COMING WEEKEND WECOULD RUN FASTER, VIRTUALLY

EVERY WEEKEND.

AND I GOT TO THE POINT WHEREI WOULD JUST SELL HEADS

RIGHT OFF MY CAR.

THERE WAS TIME WHEN I SOLDTHE WHOLE ENGINE CAUSE I'D

JUST GO MAKE ANOTHER ONE.

(MIKE)>> AND THAT'S THEHUMBLE BEGINNINGS

OF INDY CYLINDER HEAD.

WITH THE HELP OF KENLAZZERI, THEIR PASSION FOR

THE 426 HEMI GREW, AND THEYBECAME THE GO TO SOURCE FOR

MOPAR AFTERMARKETENGINE AND PARTS.

SO WHERE DID THEY GET THEIDEA TO OFFER A BIG INCH

HEMI CRATE ENGINE.

WHEN G-M RELEASED THE 572BIG BLOCK CRATE ENGINE, A

NEW STANDARD WAS SET.

YOU COULD BE PLAYING WITH720 RELIABLE HORSEPOWER FOR

AROUND $15,000 DOLLARS, BUTNOT EVERYONE WANTS A CHEVY.

SO INDY CYLINDER HEADRELEASED THEIR OWN HEAVY

HITTER CRATE ENGINE ANDTHEY CALL IT THE 572

SUPER STREET HEMI.

NOW IT'S AN ENGINE THAT'LLRUN ON EITHER RACE OR PUMP

GAS, PRODUCES OVER 750HORSEPOWER, AND IT'LL PULL

YOUR RIDE DOWN THE QUARTERMILE IN NINE SECONDS.

PLUS IT'S GUARANTEED TO GIVEYOU BRAGGING RIGHTS OVER ALL

YOUR CHRYSLER BUDDIES.

THE STARTING POINT IS THEMOPAR PERFORMANCE CAST IRON

SIAMESE BORE BLOCK.

NOW UNLIKE THE ORIGINAL, ITGLADLY ACCEPTS LARGER BORES

DUE TO THE SIAMESE DESIGN.

NOW THE BLOCK WEIGHS 35 TO40 POUNDS MORE THAN A STOCK

PIECE, AND THAT EXTRAWEIGHT TRANSLATES INTO A

MUCH STRONGER BLOCK.

NOW A-R-P STUDS WILL HOLD INTHE FIRST FOUR SIX BOLT CAPS

AND THE REAR TWO BOLT CAP.

IF WEIGHT IS AN ISSUEAND YOU HAVE SPECIAL

PREFERENCES, INDY OFFERSTHEIR OWN HEMI BLOCK

IN ALUMINUM FORM.

NOW WITH A FOUR AND AHALF INCH BORE, THE

BLOCK WEIGHS 133 POUNDS.

YOU HAVE SEVERAL OPTIONS,SUCH AS A STOCK OIL PAN RAIL

WIDTH OR WIDENED, RAISEDOR STANDARD CAM LOCATION,

AND SEVERAL CHOICESOF CAM BEARINGS

FROM ROLLER TO BABBITT.

AND ALL FIVE MAINS ARECROSS BOLTED WITH

HALF INCH HARDWARE.

IT CAN ALSO GOFROM 426 INCHES ALL

THE WAY UP TO 655.

THE BACKBONE TO OUR HEMIBUILD IS A FORGED

4340 EAGLE CRANK SHAFT.

NOW THIS THING HAS A FOURAND A HALF INCH STROKE,

AND WEIGHS IN RIGHTAT 72 POUNDS.

NOW WE DECIDED TOORDER OURS WITH THEIR

E-S-P ARMOR FINISH.

IT'S A PROCESS THAT REMOVESSTRESS RISERS FROM ITS

SURFACE AND ACTUALLYSTRENGTHENS IT UP.

NOW IT'LL ALSO REDUCEOIL TEMPERATURE

AND BEARING WEAR.

THEY CLAIM IT'LL ALSO ADDUP TO 30 HORSEPOWER

IN A BIG BLOCK ENGINE.

RUSS WHAT DO YOU GUYSDO TO GET THE BLOCK

READY FOR ASSEMBLY?

(RUSS)>> AT INDY CYLINDERHEAD WE TRY TO DO AS MANY

THINGS AS WE CAN IN THEC-N-C PROCESS SO THAT WE

KNOW THAT EVERYTHINGIS DONE PERFECTLY TIME,

AFTER TIME, AFTER TIME.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE DO ISWE RELIEVE THE BOTTOM OF THE

CYLINDERS FOR STROKECLEARANCE, DEPENDING ON

WHAT CRANK SHAFT AND WHATROD COMBINATION WE HAVE

DIFFERENT STROKE CLEARANCES.

SO BY THE TIME OUR ENGINEBUILDER GETS IT, HE'S READY

TO PUT IT TOGETHER.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HEREIS THE TWO CUTS THAT WE PUT

IN ONE THIS C-N-C TOCLEAR THE CONNECTING

ROD ON THE CRANKSHAFT.

(MIKE)>> INDY SUPPLIEDTHE MAIN BEARINGS FOR

THE ROTATING ASSEMBLY.

NOW MAKING SURE THE SADDLESARE CLEAN, THEY WILL BE

INSTALLED DRY, FOLLOWEDBY THE UPPER HALF

OF THE REAR MAIN SEAL.

THE CAM BEARINGS WILL GETLUBED NOW WITH ROYAL PURPLE

ASSEMBLY LUBE SINCETHIS IS THE ONLY

TIME TO ACCESS THEM.

NOW WE CAN SLICK UP THEREST OF THE MAIN BEARINGS

AND THE REAR MAIN SEAL.

OUR CRANK IS NEXT.

TAKE YOUR TIMESETTING IT IN PLACE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO NICK AJOURNAL ON THE MAIN STUD.

THE FIRST MAIN TO GO ONHOUSES THE THRUST BEARING.

IT WILL BE SEATED FIRSTBY TIGHTENING THE NUTS.

THEN KEN WILL FORCE ITFRONT TO BACK TO CHECK

THE THRUST CLEARANCE.

SIX AND A HALFTO SEVEN THOUSANDTHS IS

RIGHT ON THE MONEY.

THE REST OF THE CAPS AREMARKED FOR THEIR LOCATION

AND DIRECTION.

WITH A-R-P ULTRA TORQUE ONALL THEIR FASTENERS, TORQUE

THE INNER STUDS TO 90 FOOTPOUNDS AND THE OUTERS TO 25.

(KEN)>> REAR MAIN SEAL LEAKSHAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PROBLEM

ON ALL BIG BLOCK CHRYSLERS.

A LOT HAS TO DO WITHTHIS DIE CAST HOLDER.

IT JUST FITS WITHA LOT OF SLOP.

WHEN YOU GO TO INSTALL THESIDE SEALS THEY ALWAYS WANT

TO WALK UP ON YOU.

WE HAVE JUST FLATFIXED THE PROBLEM.

WE HAVE A BILLETALUMINUM SEAL HOLDER.

ALL THE DIMENSIONSARE CORRECT.

OUR SIDE SEALS TWIST IN,LOCK, AND THEY WRAP AROUND.

YOU PULL TENSION ONIT, SLIDE IT IN PLACE.

NOT ONLY DOES IT STOPTHE LEAK BUT IT'S JUST

SO EASY TO INSTALL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO FIGHTWITH THE SIDE SEALS.

(MIKE)>> AND THAT'SWHY WE LOVE THESE GUYS.

STAY WITH US, THERE'SMORE TO LEARN.

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE PASSIONLIVES ON AND THE POWER

COMES FROM THE HEADS!

READY TO GET THE ROTATING

ASSEMBLY WRAPPED UP.

TO MAKE THE CONNECTION FROMTHE CRANK TO THE PISTON ARE

A SET OF EAGLE'SFORGED 4340 H-BEAMS.

THEY HAVE A SHOT PEEN FINISHAND ACCEPT A FLOATING PIN.

THEY'RE ATTACHED TO A SETOF CUSTOM FORGED DIAMOND

PISTONS MADE TOINDY'S SPECS.

SPIRAL LOCKS WILLHOLD THE TWO TOGETHER.

THEY HAVE A TOTALSEAL ONE-SIXTEENTHS,

ONE-SIXTEENTHS,THREE-SIXTEENTHS RING PACK,

AND AN ANTI-DETONATIONGROOVE.

KEN WILL WIPE MOTOR OIL DOWNTHE FIRST COUPLE OF INCHES

OF THE BORES, BEFOREFILLING THESE FOUR AND

A HALF INCH BORES.

ENGINE BUILDING IS INA CLASS OF ITS OWN.

WATCHING KEN AND RUSS PUTTHIS ROTATING ASSEMBLY

TOGETHER IS THE PERFECTEXAMPLE OF DOING

IT THE RIGHT WAY.

NO METAL OR BRASS HAMMERSTO SEAT ANYTHING, LUBE ONLY

WHERE NEEDED, AND NOTHINGHAS TO COME BACK APART.

A-R-P 8740 BOLTS WILL BETORQUED TO 63 FOOT POUNDS.

THE CAM SHAFT IS ASOLID ROLLER FROM COMP.

IT HAS A COOLBACKGROUND TOO.

THE SPECS ARE IDENTICALTO THE G-M 572-R CAM.

LIFT AT THE VALVE IS650 ON THE INTAKE AND

655 FOR THE EXHAUST.

DURATION AT 50 IS 272AND 280, AND IT HAS

108 DEGREE CENTERLINE.

MAKING THE CONNECTION IS ANINDY CYLINDER HEAD DOUBLE

ROW BILLET TIMING SETWITH ADJUSTABLE KEYWAYS.

KEN DEGREES EVERY CAMSHAFT HE INSTALLS.

THIS IS TO VERIFY THEINFORMATION ON THE CAM CARD

IS WHAT THE CAM SPECS REALLYARE AND THE CRANK TO CAM

TIMING IS DEAD ON.

NOW THE TIMING SET BOLTSCAN BE TORQUED AND THE CAM

BUTTON INSTALLED, ANDCOVERED UP WITH A STAMPED

STEEL TIMING COVER.

TO FINISH THE FRONT AN A-T-IBALANCER THAT HAS A SEVEN

AND A QUARTER INCH DIAMETERAND O-E DIMENSIONS TO WORK

WITH ANY PULLEY SYSTEM.

WITH A-R-P BOLTS IN PLACE,INCLUDING FOUR INSIDE THE

VALLEY, WE'RE READYFOR THE HEADS.

RUSS THESE HEADSLOOK AWESOME.

WHAT MADE THEM THECHOICE TO GO ON THIS 572?

(MIKE)>> WELL THIS IS THENEW HEAD THAT WE DEVELOPED

THAT LOOKS MORE LIKE ASTANDARD CHRYSLER HEAD.

IT'S OUR 426 S-R HEAD, WHICHSTANDS FOR STOCK REPLACEMENT

BECAUSE THERE WAS MOREAND MORE PEOPLE, CHRYSLER

PEOPLE, THAT JUST WANTED AHEAD THAT WAS EXACTLY STOCK.

A LOT OF THOSE OLDER CARSWERE BUILT WITH AIR GRABBER

HOODS AND STRANGETHINGS IN OUR MINDS.

BUT TO THEM ITMEANT EVERYTHING.

SO WE WENT BACK AND MADE AHEAD THAT WAS EXACTLY THE

SAME ON THE OUTSIDEWITH BETTER AIR FLOW

CHARACTERISTICS AND WOULDLEND IT MORE TO OUR PROJECT.

(MIKE)>> THESE S-R HEADSHAVE THE SAME 170cc

COMBUSTION CHAMBERS ASSTOCK, BUT THE VALVES WERE

CUT TO ALLOW CLEARANCE FORTHAT MORE AGGRESSIVE CAM.

TOGETHER THEY CAN GENERATEUP TO 800 HORSEPOWER.

NOT ENOUGH, MEET THE HYPO.

(RUSS)>> WELL MIKE WE ALSOHAVE AN UPGRADED HEAD THAT

WE CAN PUT ON THE 572.

WITH THE DIFFERENT CAMSHAFT, WITH THE DIFFERENT

HEAD, IT'S WORTH ASMUCH AS 100 HORSEPOWER.

IT STILL HAS THE SAME SIZECOMBUSTION CHAMBER, 170, BUT

IT HAS A TWO-400 INTAKEVALVE AND A ONE-NINE-40

EXHAUST VALVE.

NOW HOW YOU ACCOMPLISH THISIS WE ROTATE THE EXHAUST

VALVES TWO DEGREES AWAYFROM THE INTAKE VALVE.

BUT WHAT THATACCOMPLISHES IS THAT

DISTANCE RIGHT THERE.

AND THAT ALLOWS YOU TO RUN ACAM SHAFT WITH EIGHT HUNDRED

THOUSANDTHS LIFT.

(MIKE)>> AND JUST LIKE THES-R'S, ALL STOCK COMPONENTS

STILL FIT, LIKETHE ROCKER SHAFTS.

NOW MAKE SURE THEORIENTATION IS CORRECT

OR THEY WON'T GO ON.

THE CHRO-MOLY ROCKER ARMSARE A ONE SIX RATIO ON THE

INTAKE AND A 155ON THE EXHAUST.

THOSE FOUR UNIQUE STUDSARE THREADED INTO THE

HEAD FROM THE BOTTOM.

NOW THESE GET TIGHTENEDBY TO KEN'S PREFERENCE.

THESE ARE TORQUED TO50 FOOT POUNDS WITH A

FINAL PASS OF 70.

A MELLING HIGH VOLUME PUMPWILL LUBRICATE THE VITALS.

AN INTERNAL PICK UP WILLSCREW INTO THE MOPAR

EXCLUSIVE ADAPTER.

AND BEFORE WE CLOSE UP THEBOTTOM END, A LITTLE MORE

OIL ON THE TIMING CHAIN ANDA FEW SQUIRTS ON THE RODS

BEAMS, WHICH WILL RUN INTOTHE OILING HOLE AND

PRE-LUBE THE WRIST PIN.

THE MILODON WINDAGETRAY IS NEXT.

IT ACCEPTS LARGER STROKES,SO NO MODIFICATIONS WERE

NEEDED, FOLLOWED BY AMILODON EIGHT QUART PAN.

IT FITS '65 THROUGH '76MUSCLE CARS, MAKING IT

EXTREMELY UNIVERSAL.

WITH ASSEMBLY LUBE IN THEPUSH ROD CUPS, THE ROCKERS

CAN BE FLIPPED OVER AND THEVALVES CAN BE LASHED TO

20 THOUSANDTHS ON THEINTAKE AND THE EXHAUST.

BEFORE WE COVER ALL THAT UP,WE WANT TO PRIME THE ENGINE

AND VERIFY OIL IS MAKINGITS WAY TO THE TOP.

NOW COMP CAMS VALVETRAINASSEMBLY SPRAY WILL PROTECT

ALL OF THIS DURING FIRE UP.

THE VALVE COVERS ON A HEMIARE THE CROWNING

JEWEL IN MY OPINION.

THESE ARE MOPARPERFORMANCE'S CAST ALUMINUM

COVERS THAT'LL LETYOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

YOU'RE LOOKING AT.

WE'RE GOING TO DYNOTHIS ENGINE WITH

TWO DIFFERENT INTAKES.

THE FIRST IS A RACEHEMI CROSS RAM.

WE SOURCED THIS ONE FROMA&A TRANSMISSIONS, WHO

IS MANUFACTURING THEM.

IT COMES WITHALL THE LINKAGE,

BRACKETS, AND HARDWARE.

NOW IT GETS TIGHTENEDTHROUGH ACCESS HOLES

IN THE INTAKE SURFACE.

ONCE TORQUED, THESECOVER PLUGS SCREW IN

TO COVER THEM UP.

TO FEED THIS ELEPHANT TWINHOLLEY 77 CARBS THAT ARE

MIRROR IMAGES OF EACH OTHER,AND PERIOD CORRECT

FOR THE CROSS RAM.

WHEN WE COME BACKTHEY'LL BE SQUIRTING.

(ANNOUNCER)>> NOTHINGSOUNDS LIKE A HEMI.

COMING UP IT'S DYNO TIME!

THIS YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

EVERYTHING PLUMBEDEXACTLY RIGHT.

(MIKE)>> RUSS AND KEN MADESHORT ORDER OF THIS BUILD.

(KEN)>> IT SHOULDBE READY TO ROCK.

(MIKE)>> AND IT'STIME TO BRING ANOTHER

HEMI INTO HISTORY.

(RUSS)>> WHEN YOU HEAR ONEOF THESE START UP AND THEY

MAKE NOISE, YOU'REJUST SO PROUD OF IT.

IT JUST REALLY, REALLY JUSTBRINGS MORE ENTHUSIASM BACK

INTO THE WHOLE THING.

(MIKE)>> KENNY HOW MANYENGINES HAVE YOU BUILT?

(KENNY)>> CHRYSLER ENGINESTHIS IS NUMBER 3,018.

(MIKE)>> SO HE'S LEARNED AFEW TRICKS ALONG THE WAY.

(KENNY)>> YOU DON'T WANT TOACCIDENTLY START THE ENGINE

UP AT 60 DEGREES OF TIMING.

YOU CAN DO A LOT OF DAMAGE.

YOU NEED TO BE AS CLOSE TO35 DEGREES AS POSSIBLE.

WHAT YOU DO YOU SET THEENGINE AT TOP DEAD CENTER,

YOU LINE IT UP RIGHT ATNUMBER ONE, YOU ADD A HALF

INCH OF TIME, LOCK IT DOWN,YOU'RE WITHIN A DEGREE OF

WHERE YOU NEED TO BE.

(MIKE)>> WITH A QUICK CHECKFOR LEAKS AND ANOTHER FOR

TIMING, HOW CLOSE WAS KEN?

(KEN)>> IT'S ONE DEGREE OFF.

(MIKE)>> THATMEANS WE'RE READY.

(RUSS)>> GET USA GOOD ONE HERE.

(MIKE)>> AND TAKINGIT STRAIGHT TO 6,500.

[ engine revving ]

(KEN)>> GOOD ONE.

(MIKE)>> IT MAKES MEJUMP UP IN MY SEAT.

(RUSS)>> YOU CAN FEEL IT.

(MIKE)>> 713, 697.

(KEN)>> NOT BAD, TIME TOMAKE SOME MORE POWER.

(MIKE)>> THIS INTAKEWON'T MAKE MUCH MORE.

IT'S ALL ABOUTTHAT HEMI LOOK.

(RUSS)>> SOUNDSGOOD, LOOKS GOOD.

THERE'S NO OTHER AMERICANMADE V-EIGHT THAT LOOKS LIKE

THIS HEMI ENGINE THAT THEYPUT IN A LOT OF CARS.

IT'S JUST THE MYSTIQUEOF THE WHOLE THING.

(MIKE)>> 722, 702.

(KEN)>> PRETTY GOOD,WHERE IT SHOULD BE.

(MIKE)>> THAT'S RIGHT ONMONEY WITH THIS INTAKE SETUP.

(RUSS)>> LETS CHANGETHE SETUP THEN.

(MIKE)>> RUSS IS ANXIOUSTO SHOW US MORE POWER.

SO HE BROUGHT THIS, ADUAL PLANE INTAKE WITH

A DOMINATOR FLANGE.

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED BY THEBEST SUPER STOCK RACER OF

ALL TIMES, ARLEN VANKE, WHOWAS HIRED BY CHRYSLER TO

TEST THEIR PERFORMANCETECHNOLOGY.

ON TOP IS A 1050 C-F-MHOLLEY DOUBLE PUMPER.

(KEN)>> LETS DO IT.

[ engine revving ]

(RUSS)>> THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

(MIKE)>> 754, 685.

(RUSS)>> JUST A NICESTRAIGHT LINE ALL THE WAY UP.

(MIKE)>> VERY CLEAN.

(KEN)>> I'LL TELL YOUWHAT, NOTHING SOUNDS

BETTER THAN A HEMI.

(MIKE)>> OH YOUGOT THAT RIGHT.

NOTHING FEELS BETTER.

I MEAN IT'S IN YOURFEET, IT'S IN THE

FLOOR, IT'S EVERYWHERE.

(RUSS)>> YOU CAN ACTUALLYSIT HERE AND FEEL IT.

(MIKE)>> THAT'S AWESOME!

AND AFTER A MINOR JETCHANGE HERE GOES ANOTHER.

THAT'S IT, 762,677, WHAT A GRAPH.

AND I MEAN IT'S CARRYINGTHE POWER WAY OUT TOO

EVEN FROM THE PEAK.

AND HERE GOES OUR LAST RUN.

(KEN)>> 764, 687.

(MIKE)>> LOOK ATTHAT TORQUE, IT WANTS

IT EVEN FURTHER BACK.

(KEN)>> ALMOST 7,000.

(MIKE)>> I CAN'TGET OVER HOW FAR IT

HOLDS THE POWER THERE.

I MEAN IT JUST FLATLINES ACROSS THE GRAPH.

(RUSS)>> GOOD STREET MOTOR,THAT OUGHT TO MAKE GOOD ONE.

(MIKE)>> IF IT'S PULLING YOUTHIS HARD SITTING AT A DESK,

THAT THING'S GONNABE FUN IN A CAR.

(KEN)>> IT'LL BEREAL DRIVABLE ALSO.

(RUSS)>> SINGLECARBURETOR, AWESOME.

(MIKE)>> YEP, VERY NICE.

INDY OFFERS TONS OFPARTS AS WELL AS

SEVERAL CRATE ENGINES.

ONE LIKE OURS IS AVAILABLETO YOU IN TWO WAYS.

DISASSEMBLED, WHICH SAVES$1,000, OR ASSEMBLED AND

DYNO'ED TO YOUR DOOR FORAROUND $17,000 BUCKS.

(KEN)>> THIS ENGINEINCREASES THE VALUE OF

ANY CAR IT GOES INTO.

(MIKE)>> NO CAKE CLICHÉNEEDED HERE, THESE HEMI'S

SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

THIS ONE IS OFF TO ITSNEW OWNER IN ITALY,

AND ANOTHER TO SWEDEN.

THIS ONE IS UP FORGRABS ALONG WITH

MANY MORE TO FOLLOW.

(RUSS)>> AS LONG AS WE'REAROUND WE'RE STILL GONNA

HAVE HEMI ENGINES.

(MIKE)>> NO DOUBT,SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
