Heyhot rodding isnt easy, and it certainly isnt cheap.
It sure is fun, though! The idea of spending an entire weekend bent over a fender or lying on your back swapping a clutch might be considered some kind of punishment by some, but for a hard-core car guy it can be better than Disneyland. You can wrap up all kinds of emotion into it, such as the pride of accomplishment or the knowledge that you fixed something with your own two hands.
Whatever the motivation, gearheads thrive on spinning wrenches. Thats why weve assembled this selection of how-to stories this month. Weve got some great tech on distributor timing curves for cheap power and solid info on how to snap that shifter into place on a Muncie four-speed and look like a pro doing it. Weve also got a slick feature on a 12-second Chevelle that the owner built on a budget. Finally, weve assembled all the information we could find on Vortec heads to put all that tech in one place where its easy to find.
So there you have itenough how-to stuff to last you a month, which is just about how long it will take until your next issue of CHP shows up. By that time, well have come up with a few more ideas for you. Isnt this fun?
