Like the title says, New Hemi Engines (2003 to Present): How to Build Max Performance is going to show every garage jockey, student and journeyman mechanic how to maximize third-generation hemi engine performance. This book takes even the most complicated Hemi project and lays it out in simple to follow language giving everyone the opportunity to manage production intake manifolds, air/fuel ratios, EFI systems, oil paths, pumps, pans and filters, ring and piston prep, rocker arms, ratio, shafts and stands, valve springs, engine swaps and much, much more.

Knowing how to maximize third-generation hemi engine performance includes understanding the complete ignition system: spark plugs, switches, ECM, coils, wiring, starter, battery, ground straps and sensors, and how the computer reacts to all of them. Itís about knowing and choosing FAST ignition kits and AEM programmable ECMs. It includes instructions for using your personal PC devices to change the fuel and spark maps on your hemi. This book is a workshop for mufflers, bearings, connecting rods, exhaust gaskets and pipes, and managing compression ratios. It also features extensive coverage of aftermarket superchargers and installation.
