These aren't race trucks in our cases but still, these motors have to breathe well. Unfortunately, they are prone to cracking between the seats. It will be a daily-driven pump-gas car that will see limited drag strip use, so the characteristics of good street manners and a wide powerband are at least as important as peak power. Stock rocker gear, Iron Ram heads. Detonation is what typically kills hypereutectic pistons, and even without detonation pistons will ultimately fail at lower horsepower levels than forged pistons. This represents a limitation on lift, as well as spring selection.
This may seem like an extravagant choice given the budget nature of our build, but it was simply a test piece taken from the dyno shop inventory. That crate was rated at 380 hp, a number we hoped to at least equal with less compression and a dual-plane intake, but better heads. They are stronger than they appear. The Magnum camshaft nose was also changed and will not accept a mechanical-fuel-pump drive eccentric. We believe these fears are radically overstated.
These headers were a funny design, they were 2 tubes into one tube about 6 - 8 inches from the head and then joined to one tube down low, they seem to work well. A hot street cam duration would be in the 224º to 236º. Compression will be right around 10.

To keep the stock heads, the valve guides need to be machined down and new seals, valve-springs, and matching retainers installed. The car has caltracs and monoleafs and Calvert shocks also. The first step was stabbing in a hot cam to replace the factory truck piece. We set the timing to 34 degrees, ran it up to operating temperature, and went straight into the power pulls. Kit includes step-by-step installation instructions and application squeege. Due to the large variety of Mopar internal engine parts we offer, we have other pages on our website specifically devoted to Mopar Pistons, Mopar Connecting Rods, Mopar Crankshafts and small block Mopar intake manifolds. Best run to date was 11.
Includes oil pan,cylinder head, valve cover,chain case cover,intake manifold and oil pump gaskets.

All pistons are machined to the same weight regardless of size, to maintain piston balance. We no longer sell these items so the below information is for reference only. The profile is long in duration but the cam is very easy on the valvetrain and springs, with very good stability and rpm potential.
I'm running one and like it a lot. We actually assembled our 360 from a bare short-block on the dyno. I'm running one and like it a lot.
