dodge dakota big block 383 with air ride! 1lowdingo
my 94 dodge dakota 383 big block. single handedly built in my spare time
over winter in my garage. there are barely any parts available for this big
block swap so some of the hand crafted parts were a pain! motor mounts,
headers, oil pan and cross-member were just to name a few but its all worth
it to say BUILT NOT BOUGHT!
My Dodge Dakota New Paint Job & Performance Upgrades
I know I havent done a truck video in awhile as been a busy years racing
and upgrading parts on the truck here is a video showing the changes I have
made. In April / May I had upgrated the top end of the engine with new
heads, intake, throttle body and bigger headers, later in the summer it got
some fresh paint.

Test drive in my Dakota R/T with a new 408. Yes I'm babying it a lot,

1994 Dodge Dakota Build
This is a little video dedicated to my 1994 Dodge Dakota that I picked up
for $500. She was in rough shape, but now she's doing great!!!
Dodge Dakota Burnout
This is my 1988 451 stroker big block powered 1988 Dodge Dakota. I bought
this truck for $100.00 back in the fall of 1999. This is a very fun vehicle
to drive around town and is very street friendly. The engine is only 9.5:1
and burns 93 octane fuel. It has also run the local 1/8 mile track at to
the tune of 7.40 @ 94 mph with 3.55:1 gears. Needless to say, being that
its just a 1988 dakota...many people with chevelles, chargers, Camaros, corvettes, vipers and Mustangs are shocked when the
realize that they just got thier asses handed to them by a little black
truck. LOL! only kidding. As you can see, burnouts are effortless...more
vids to come. Enjoy!
