Dodge Dakota Initial Start Up 360 / 426 Stroker Open Headers
Finished putting in the 426 engine on sunday, this is a small block magnum
engine not a hemi, and got it fired up after a tweak adjustment to the
distributor. This is open headers as they and the valve covers have to come
back off for cylinder head re-torque. This is the video from the Dash Cam.
426 Dodge Dakota Drag Racing & Fuel Pump FAIL

tracks National Dragster Challenge in which all classes were racing for the
coveted "Wally" Trophy. I had my sights on mine raced into thhe night and
it was only 8 seconds away.

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.
How to Flush the Coolant and Replace the Thermostat in a 2002 Dodge Dakota
This vehicle had one of the worst cases of rusty coolant I've ever seen, so
I demonstrate how to drain the cooling system, flush all the old coolant
out, then backflush the radiator and the engine to clean the rust out of
the cooling system, and then replace the thermostat and bleed the cooling
FYI: I needed 1 1/2 jugs of concentrated coolant when I flushed the system,
so be sure to buy enough

Indy Mod Man Intake 3x2BBL 452 Cubic Small Block Stroker
This is of of the most misunderstood intakes for small block mopars. It
would help if the maker Indy Cylinder Head would do more then just toss it
out and say here it is.
This vid was made shortly after the realease of this manifold several years
ago and there is still little praticle usable info on these intake
manifolds and the countless ways they can be setup other then alot of very
vague information...why Indy Cylinder Head?
This intake can be made/modified to be as subtle and easily driven as a oem
2bb motor or at 7k in this vid or chipped at 7700. It can be modified for
If you think the oem edelbrock is a good manifold and it is but if you
have exceeded its limits, this is a great option to consider as I have ran
std oem as well as highly modifed factory units.
It is also a good manifold for Nitrous
oxide plumbing, although due to the casting quality most should consider a
couple self resetting Nitrous pro flow
releif valves for various reasons. This manifold is plumbed, although not
used or needed in this vid.
The key to make this manifold work is to understand what you are building
and how the parts work together. Do not expect wonders with this intake
from the box, the casting quality is so/so, the ports will need work to fit
your needs as they come delivered small and rough (which is understandable
being a one base fits many, type manifold). This is not the type of the
days of old manifold where you could pull it from the box and install and
expect semi good results.
This is not an new idea, its a improved idea of a open plenum 3x2
removable top manifold used on some 351 Clevlands 30 years ago, not the
exotic Bud Moore Nascar type removable top intake but a more street minded
intake with a removable top for different apps. although it had some runner
length and the open plenum was of less volume. Please excuse me for not
knowing the maker, although I was allowed to take pics of it.
Ford pioneered the semi modern tri power concept, GM played with it and
Chrysler perfected it. Ford passed the ball when nascar killed there
366/360-6 3x2 program. A move im sure Ford regrets to this day.
This vid was made on a CLOSED road, the lights ahead were not for me, they
schedule closures to move large ind. production pieces from on part of the
plant to another.
This vid is the result of well matched parts in a semi pro touring type
modified car, please use caution whenever testing and use proper safety
gear and good luck!
And lastly, use common sense, do not expect 7000-7700 RPM on a 35 year old
pushrod motor without the use of good quality MATCHING parts.
Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
