About “Sleeper”

This car lives up to it's name: She looks tame on the outside, but when I put my foot in the worked Mopar small block, she just hunkers down and takes off! The engine was left appearing completely stock (until you take off the air cleaner housing with it's K&N low restriction drop-in replacement filter and see the Holley 750cfm 4-barrel, that is!). If you look closely, you'll see the headers that dump into a 3" true dual exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers for a mellow yet purposeful sound.

Specs for “Sleeper”

The engine started out as a mild-mannered 318, but it's been worked within an inch of it's life. Bored out .060 over, stroked 3/4", and the compression bumped up to 10.75:1, and featuring a mid-race cam. The heads have been completely gone through as well, being extrude honed and port-matched, with a three angle valve job. She has a 727 Torqueflite automatic with a shift kit and a 2,000 stall converter, all built to handle the power. It's all backed up by a Posi rear, of course.
