Daihatsu Rocky V8! - Streetwize Performance - Project 340 "The Hard Way" clip 2 of 3

Update on the Smallblock Rocky Project, Over the past several weeks I tore down and rebuilt the stock bottom end 8:1 compression 318 in to a 10.2:1 compression 341" (5.6L) mini-stroker, I used a 6" aluminum Mopar Rod that I got a really nice deal on along with the Keith Black KB167 piston and a Mopar Performance 3.55" stroke crank. The combo fits nice (after some bore relieving to clear the big fat rods!).The pistons come up about .005 in the hole, The shortblock is now done and I should be bolting on the tweaked Edelbrock RPM heads, M1 intake and rear sump truck pan, Then I'll be dropping it back in and hope to fire it up (with about another 175 horsepower over the phase 1 318 shown in the first video) within a few weeks. I'm also going to swap in a much stronger 8 3/4" mopar rear end with 4.56" gears and put a shift kit and 3500 stall 10" converter in the tranny. YouTube is great because I never really realized before tht although the Daihatsu Rocky is very uncommon here in the states they are very popular all over Europe, Asia and Australia, The engine bay is very large and easily accomodates a Small block Ford, Chevy or this case a Mopar engine....provided the 4x4 crossmember is cut away and you convert to a rear wheel drive configuration. stay tuned.... www.streetwizeperformance.com
