AAR Cuda Mopar 340 TA Engine block
In 1969-1970 Chrysler made a special 340 engine for the AAR Cuda and the
T/A Challenger. These engines were different than a standard 340 used in
other Mopars. The TA engines had the designation embossed on the block,
driver side. If you're buying a TA 340 also check the heads by removing the
oil cap on the passenger side. With the cap off look inside and the rear
rocker should be offset. You may need a flashlight to see it.
If you scattered the original engine you may have received a standard 340
replacement block. I've heard stories both ways. My buddy back in 1970 went
through 3 warranty transmissions before they said enough.
Some of the later blocks which were left over made their way into 1971 340
Road Runners and other cars. If you're looking at a 340, look closely
because the TA340 are still around.
I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you.

Mega Mopar - Huge Car Show Drag Racing Burnouts - Supercharged Action at Gateway MSP
This past weekend Jordan and I went to Mega Mopar at Gateway Motorsports
Park and it was awesome! They had a huge car show, a swap meet, nostaglia
drags, funny cars, a wheelstander, and more. We really had a great time! I
tried to pack as much action into the video as I could. There was a sea of
awesome Mopars....Daytonas, Challengers, Chargers, Darts, Super Bees...the
list goes on and on. It was a weekend filled with hemis, wedges, Superchargers, and dual carbs. If you were there,
and your car is not in this video, please don't dispair....I will have much
more coverage coming up in the days ahead. I hope you found it
interesting....thanks for watching!

Go for a Spin in a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A with 340 Sixpack Engine and 320hp
http://www.rpmcollection.com Steve Cage shows you his awesome 1970 Dodge
Challenger T/A 340 "Six Pack" muscle car in "Top Banana" yellow.
The slapstick transmission function is used only for upshifts. You manually
put it into first gear. As you accelerate - and the rpms are where you want
it - you just slap the shift lever to the right.
In order to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan
Championship, Dodge built the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am).
The 340 engine added a trio of two-barrel carburetors on top of an
Edelbrock intake manifold, creating the "340 Six Pack". horsepower was about 320 hp.
The engine breathed air through a suitcase sized air scoop molded into the
fiberglass hood. Dual Exhausts ran to
the stock muffler location under the trunk, then reversed direction to exit
in chrome outlets in front of the rear wheels.
AAR Cuda Tharashing. They dont play with them like this anymore
This is 30 year old footage of some guys having fun with an awsome AAR
Plymouth Cuda with a 340 six pack. Check out Barrett Jackson and see what
these cars are going for now. Sorry about the sound quality, but with music
you wouldnt be able to hear the cars.
