A lot of engine work was done over the past 6 years as well. Instead of going with my dream of a non smog-legal 440ci big block, I decided to build the factory small block (not the original small block -- it was already on its third engine by then). Mopar Performance Magnum cast iron R/T heads with 2.02 intake valves were built by Robert Landy at Dick Landy Industries, the late Dick Landy's speed shop in the San Fernando Valley. I will never get rid of these heads.A Comp cams was added to the package, along with roller rockers, a Mopar single-plane intake manifold, and an F&B throttle body. Mesa headers (also out of business) were bolted onto the sides of the block, and a Supertrapp muffler dumped the exhaust out the side of the truck.
