Muscle Cars take on the Mother Road in the Fall issue of Power & Performance News

If you plan to motor out west, take the highway that’s the best, and come along with us for a tour of Route 66. For a new spin on that classic Route 66 tour, Rich Truesdell collected four classic muscle cars in Chicago and set his sights on California. His travelogue of cool places to stay, sights to not miss, and fine eateries is certain to entertain.

CoverIn an exclusive interview, we speak with Lead Mechanic Tom Sarmento who reveals the hidden stories behind the mechanical preparations required to ready the cars for the original Dukes of Hazzard TV series. From suiting up the stuntmen for their incredible jumps, to just getting the “car stars” staged, to performing when called upon, it’s a story any gearhead can appreciate.

Enthusiasts looking for technical information won’t be disappointed with the newest issue of PPN as we install and tune Edelbrock’s new Pro-Flow 3 fuel injection system on Tech Editor Jeff Smith’s classic El Camino. In a unique deep-dive, Smith also details the techniques required to blueprint a clutch/bellhousing system; if you’ve ever missed a shift due to incorrect clutch release, you’ll want to read this one.

To round out the tech tour, Rockett Brand Racing Fuels explains octane and its relationship to engine performance, Comp valvetrain wizard Billy Godbold debunks many of the myths surrounding camshaft and valve gear component section, and Lake Speed Jr. reveals the often misunderstood world of transmission oil selection. Tons of tech, cool car features and interesting profiles, including a candid conversation with Director of Comp Cams’ New product Development, Dave Henninger, button up an issue that is sure to entertain tech-savvy automotive enthusiasts.
