When we selected Rocky's car, we never imagined it would be so tame. From the photos and description, we pictured a total bruiser with movie star good looks. It wasn't until the ride along that we discovered the car was exceptional. Rocky ran a Supercharger Store/ProCharged 408 set up with electric cutouts. When it wasn't unleashed through the open pipes, it was breathing through a pair of Dynomax mufflers. This made the A-Body quite pleasant to drive and was compounded by a well-matched suspension. This was all it took to send this Dart all the way to the top. Its paint and body were spot-on, and he made the only 10-second pass of the bunch.
The Dart features Wilwood disc brakes on all four corners, Bilstein shocks, and power steering. Out back is an 8-inch rearend filled with 3.55 gears and a Sure-Grip. These components work together to make the driving and riding experience very enjoyable. The right foot controls a forged 408 small-block with a D1SC ProCharger and 9.20:1 compression. The rotating assembly consists of Eagle I-beam rods, coated JE pistons, and a 4-inch stroke Mopar crankshaft. Spinning inside is a hydraulic roller Comp camshaft rated at .523/.523-inch lift and 236/238-degrees duration. Sitting on top are aluminum Edelbrock RPM heads mated to port-matched tti headers and a ported Edelbrock Victor intake manifold with Demon carburetors. The engine is backed by a Trans Craft automatic transmission with a 3200-stall Yank converter.
