ARP Engine Build Episodes

This season, we have two ARP Engine Builds! Kevin’s building up a 5.2L Coyote block, while Willie’s building up a 5.7L Hemi block. In alternating episodes, the guys give tips and tricks on their respective builds, each on a quest for high horsepower and maximum torque!

2019 ARP Engine Build Introduction

Kevin introduces his Coyote block and Willie introduces his Hemi block for this season's sponsored ARP Engine Build. They discuss their choices for blocks, addons, the final vehicle application, and proposed power they hope to see from their completed engines.

Hemi Build Part 1

Willie further introduces his Hemi engine while discussing the proper use of assembly lube on his ARP Main Studs. He then goes in depth about the proper sizing, filing, gapping and fitting of rings for an engine build.

Coyote Build Part 1

Kevin discusses flat plane versus cross plane cranks, and why he chose this crank for his engine build. He explains the PTWA (Plasma Transferred Wire Arc) block’s coating technology and gets his build underway with a crank install utilizing ARP Main Studs.

Hemi Build Part 2

Willie reiterates the importance of properly indexing and gapping your rings, and shows a quick trick to put a ring on a piston. He discusses “I” versus “H” beam connecting rods and why replacing the pistons for a supercharged application is wise, then finishes up by installing rods and pistons on the Hemi.
