How to Build Max-Performance HEMI Engines

Aaaah … the 426 Hemi. The name alone conjures up mental images of massive power mixed with testosterone.


If you are interested in building a Gen-2 426 style HEMI, this is the book for you.


I said to myself, “If I ever wrote a book, I would not overlook WHY things were done a certain way.” Then apply some common sense. So rather than just showing you the bearing clearances in a chart I’ll discuss the tradeoffs. Aluminum expands more than iron, so what does that do to valve lash, cooling efficiency, rod length, ring seal, or quench? I’ll show you how and explain why.
