In case you’ve missed the last couple episodes of Engine Masters, why not spend this weekend—or at least a half-hour this weekend—getting caught up? You can watch all of the Engine Masters episodes for free on the MotorTrend YouTube Channel, but we’ll just drop the last couple in here to sate your curiosity for making more horsepower cheaply. In the most recent episode, Freiburger and Steve Dulcich test the age-old adage “There’s no replacement for displacement,” in which they pit a stroked 410 cubic-inch small-block Chrysler V8 against a stock 360 (well, actually 367) cubic-inch V8.
The 410 has been on Engine Masters before and the 360 was one that came out of one of Dulcich’s Dodge trucks in an episode of Roadkill Garage, which you can watch on MotorTrendOnDemand with a free 30-day trial. The results might surprise you or they might not, but stick around for the full episode to hear Freiburger give a lesson in horsepower economics.
Speaking of cheap mods, we’ll also link Episode 17 below so you can see the guys test 2.5-inch and 3-inch exhausts on a mild engine using Westech’s dyno. They also test the difference between expensive and cheap mufflers for good measure.
