Inside The 5.7 Hemi
From the February, 2006 issue of Mopar Muscle

Intake Manifold Testing
From the October, 2009 issue of Mopar Muscle

Cylinder Heads
Choose The Right Heads For Your Small-Block Mopar Monster
From the July, 2006 issue of Mopar Muscle

Back in the early days, choosing cylinder heads for your small-block Mopar engine used to be a no-brainer.
