If you’re into Super Stock Hemis, this episode is for you. BES Racing’s Darin Morgan sits down with hosts Joe Castello and Lake Speed Jr to deliver a master class on what goes into building race-winning engines.

Beginning with cylinder head casting and going all the way through his machining techniques and tricks, Morgan dives into the art and craft of making a factory-built Hemi to do what it was never meant to do.

In the session Morgan details everything from the differences between the modern 5.7 and the old 426/64/68 Hemis, to the secret machining methods he uses to eliminate choke points and standardize airflow to squeeze every last bit of horsepower from the engine.

Along the way he also shares the “dos”, “don’ts”, “hows,” and “whys” of porting hemispherical cylinder heads, as well as sharing a wealth of tools and information help Super Stock racers build their own race-winning engines.

(Note: if you watched the live Expo 2024, day 2 broadcast in January, this is the segment that experienced the technical difficulties.)

Segment originally aired live on January 12, 2024
