Found out today there was something wrong with the front suspension. The car wandered slightly to right when braking, and highspeed braking result in a heavy vibration. Suspecting something wrong with the strutrod bushing, I [more … ]
Was out in the garage the other day and noticed the obvious wheel camber on the ’73 Dart at a considerable steering wheel angle. Just wanted to share the photo’s.
Last week I was able to install and hook up my MegaSquirt-3 Extra ECU in the Dart, which I had been benchtesting recently. The ignition system consists of a stock (Chrysler LeanBurn) distributor, a HEI [more … ]
Below is a small compilation of some videoclips with my ’73 Dart being controlled by the MegaSquirt ECU for the first time. The stock distributor (w/mechanical advance) was still installed on the engine, so the [more … ]
I’ve just added a page for Mopar Wheel Aligment specifications for modern tires in the Tech-area of the site, as this question comes up fairly often from people wanting to know the best alignment settings [more … ]

For testing the crank sensor on my 360ci engine build, I mounted the pulley-assembly on the lathe and spin-tested it, while checking its signal through the MegaSquirt ECU and a laptop; Here’s a little videoclip [more … ]
The 16 new valves have been backcut to remove their ‘ski-jump’-ridge, which hinders flow, and all were polished to a shine. Now the heads were mostly done, I could focus my attention on prepping the [more … ]
Last year I bought a smallblock Mopar 360ci engineblock and started working on rebuilding it for my daily ’73 Dart, in favor of the current 318. The plan is to build an efficient running engine [more … ]
What has the world come to…?! A smallblock on BigBlockMopar.com?! Am I getting soft in the head? Well, as I recently had decided the 5.7L Hemi engine-project was too big of a project to technically [more … ]
