Performance Suspension Technology

Finally, if you really want to leave your Mopar all stock, but have a decent ride and handling that is geared towards a factory ride, then PST has you covered. Worn steering and suspension components cause “play” in the steering system, resulting in unresponsive handling and wandering on the road. PST’s parts are precision engineered for durability that meet or exceeds OE standards, and are backed by their Lifetime Limited Warranty. They’ve packaged the most commonly needed components into one convenient Standard Front End Kit for the budget-minded customer. Most enthusiasts choose to save time and money by replacing all of the components at once with their Super Front End Kit, instead of dismantling the suspension repeatedly to replace one or two parts at a time.

Each of their kits is available with either OE-style rubber bushings or PST’s exclusive Polygraphite bushings. Rubber bushings are best suited for restoration projects where spirited handling isn’t a key objective. Polygraphite bushings are the latest in suspension technology, featuring the lubricating qualities of graphite and virtually zero deflection operation for the best in handling and cornering.

Roll and Lift

Comp Cams

It wasn’t until just a couple of years ago that you could put a roller cam into a small-block Mopar, and not have to do a lot of machine work. Now, Comp Cams has Retro-Fit Roller Lifters. These new roller lifters are for small-blocks that were originally equipped with flat-tappet camshafts. So, by not having to machine your block and add bushings to the lifter bores, you can save money and still run a “roller.”

Approximate cost
lifters: $546 (roller cam extra)

Stroked

By adding cubic inches to your engine, you will create more torque, and ultimately more power. Stroker kits are available for every engine imaginable, from 318 all the way up to the big Hemi. If you’re building—or thinking about building—a stroker, you can either piecemeal all of the parts and hope you get it right, or you can get a ready-to-go kit for whatever you’re building.

Hughes Engines

The guys at Hughes have been delivering and building horsepower for Mopar guys for a very long time, and they know a thing or two about stroker kits. Their kits come with high-quality components, and they have kits for just about any stroker configuration you can think of, be it a small- or big-block Mopar engine.

Approximate cost
$1,500 - $2,500

440Source

To help you get just what you need, the guys at 440Source want to be able to talk to you in person and make sure you are getting the correct size kit for your application. They have no online listing, but they’ve sold thousands of big-block Mopar stroker kits, and planning your build with a tech representative before you start buying things could save you huge hassles later on.

Indy Cylinder Head

According to the guys at Indy, no one can put together a finer big- or small-block rotating assembly than they can. Their years of experience and testing allow them to assemble just the right combination of components to generate real horsepower. The quality of the components used in their rotating kits is unsurpassed, assuring you of an engine build that will be done right the first time. Balancing is available on all rotating kits unless noted.

Approximate cost
408 - 655 inches: $1,225 - $5,250

Muscle Motors

The Muscle Motors racing crew start their “base” kit with items like a cast, stroker crankshaft, forged I-beam connecting rods, Hypereutectic pistons, rod and main bearings, and plasma moly piston rings. The rotating assembly is then balanced. This kit is recommended for applications under 500 horsepower. You can build from there, and end up with a killer small-block, or if you’re working on a big-block, they have you covered as well.

Approximate cost
small-block – big-block: $1199 - $2,199
