Carburetor vs EFI Shootout! - Engine Masters Ep. 2
Should you run a carburetor, or should you try the new and easy self-learning EFI setups? We’ll dish up answers in this episode of Engine Masters, presented by AMSOIL. Host David Freiburger, Steve Dulcich, and Steve Brule strap a 5.3L LM7 engine to the engine Dyno and look at the price, installation, and power of a Holley 750-cfm double-pumper versus Holley’s Terminator throttle-body EFI. The guys come up with a big part-mismatch nightmare along the way—one you should also watch out for. As you’re watching the episode, keep in mind that most of the carb-vs-throttle-body info applies to any engine, not just the LS-style test mule. However, Holley does provide very simple, plug-in kits to power the LS platform. In fact, if you have a complete junkyard LS that still has the intake manifold, throttle body, and injectors, you can get a much cheaper LS controller that plugs right in. But if you’re a carburetor guy considering your first foray into fuel injection, this episode of Engine Masters is for you.

Are CNC-Ported Cylinder Heads Worth the Money? - Engine Masters Ep. 6
Topping your engine with a set of aftermarket cylinder heads is a near-certain method for making more horsepower and torque—but is the extra power really worth the money? In this episode of Engine Masters presented by AMSOIL, we answer that question for people who are running a typical street-cruising small-block Chevy V8. We start with a very common, 440-horsepower, 383ci stroker engine using production Chevy Vortec iron cylinder heads and swap them out for a set of CNC-ported aluminum heads. Naturally, they make more power at nearly every single point in the power curve, so you’ll have to watch the video and see the full graph to decide if this is an upgrade that’s worth it for you.
