Mopar B-Body Chrysler muscle cars built from the mid 60s to the late 70s include classic models such as the Charger, Road Runner, GTX, Super Bee, and Coronet. Automotive technology has vastly improved since these cars were manufactured, and therefore owners can now enjoy the muscle car experience with a comfortable ride, sharp handling, an efficient transmission, and many creature comforts.

This book explains how to choose the ideal heads, cams, intake, and carb for a complete top-end performance package. In addition, the author discusses and explains the building of a stroker engine. When going fast, you must be able to stop, so substantial brake upgrades are a necessity. All the stock disc upgrades and aftermarket offerings are included, including Baer and Wilwood systems.

Author Andrew Finkbeiner explains how to fabricate, as well as install, subframe connectors and upgrade K-frame members.

A number of weight-saving techniques that vastly improve handling and performance are revealed. Finkbeiner also goes into detail on how to select proper performance components, upgraded steering boxes, overdrive transmissions, clutch, exhaust, electrical system upgrades, and so much more. This B-Body performance guide is a must-have for Mopar aficionados.
