The LA - Lightweight A - was as compact as it gets. It weighed a mere 50 pounds and had wedge heads and wall casting. Its horsepower and torque was admired on both the professional track and in the street. It came in iterations of 273-, 317-, 340- and 360-ci inches with a full range of aftermarket products.
By the early 1990s, the LA platform morphed into the Magnum. The 5.2 and 5.9 liter engines became the new standard of small-block Mopar performance. The name was born from the combination of MOtor PARts. While Mopar has become a general term for a type of engine, it is actually a company that specifically produced the Mopar engine.
You can find these powerhouse engines in millions of Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth vehicles produced between 1964 and 2003. It was also the go-to power source for such classic muscle cars as the Charger, Dart, Challenger and Barracuda. While many find the Mopar small-block engines to deliver more than their fair share of power in stock trim, it is surprising how that power can be modified. That's where the Mopar engine performance guide comes into play.
