98 Grand Cherokee 5.2 V8 318 MOPAR M1 Intake Manifold
Here at DG Motors, we have Dan's amazingly beautiful 98 5.2 V8 Grand
Cherokee with all his awesome mods, and we are installing his new MOPAR
intake manifold. This manifold allows more air to efficiently flow through
the intake and allows the motor to breath better making more power. Dan
also installed a electronically controlled cutout to his Kooks Exhaust allowing him to choose, by the push of a
button, wide open Exhaust before the
Super 44 muffler or normal Exhaust out
the tailpipe after the muffler. The next videos of this great truck will be
Dyno vids. Stay Tuned!

Testing the Dodge 318 Magnum engine before dropping it in my 85 D100
I got this engine out of a 94 Dodge ram van to put in my 85 D100 truck. The
truck used to have a slant 6/manual trans, but I got the truck without a
motor and figured I'd also make it fuel injected seeing how I had so much
success with my 5th avenue. The transmission is a A518 with overdrive.
5.2 ZJ Hughes Air Gap Intake & Big Gulp TB Dual Exhaust Cam
I finally installed an Air Gap Intake Manifold and Big Gulp Throttle Body.
The Top-end and Mid-range of the power band have improved dramatically. I
am very happy with this purchase.

Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process

1999 Dodge ram plenum repair
Fixing the plenum pan on my truck... its a common problem on 2nd gen dodge
rams. When the gasket blows it lets oil into the intake which gets sucked
into the cylinders... most trucks mine included were just re programed to
run diffrent instead of dodge fixing the plenum. After replacing my plenum
pan and intake gaskets, i have more power and it hasnt used any oil or
coolant in the past week.
