Unboxing the Dodge Daytona Engine!

 

We wanted Chris' Dodge Daytona build to be something special, so we had to get a special engine. So we were put in touch with Dodge so we can shoehorn the most powerful Mopar crate engine between the hydroformed frame rails. That's right, we got Chris a 426ci Hellephant crate engine! Unveiled at the SEMA Show 2019, this Mopar crate boasts some pretty impressive numbers.

 

Painting Jeff's 1965 Buick Riviera - Detroit Speed, Inc.

 

?Detroit Speed, Inc. Paint & Body Specialists Michael Neighbors and Austin Moore laid it down on Jeff Mosing's 1965 Buick Riviera and the results are impressive. This paint job consists of 4 coats of Ferrari Rosso Mugello (PPG# 919506) base sprayed from a SATA Jet 1500 B HVLP with an Adam 2 digital pressure gauge. After the base, 5 coats of DCU2021 are sprayed from a SATA Jet X 5500 RP with Adam 2 digital pressure gauge as well. The icing on the cake is utilizing the SATA RPS cup system to make prepping a breeze. The key to any perfect paint job is all in the prep. To ensure we don't get paint where we don't want it, that's where IPG tape with Norton Paint Check paper comes into play. We also need to make sure that our air is clean, so Ingersoll Rand compressors provide clean air through a SATA filter system.

Hydroformed Subframe Timelapse 2020

 

Built with pride in the USA! Detroit Speed’s front subframe is a bolt-in replacement for the original stock subframe. It improves the handling and ride quality by utilizing Detroit Speed’s unique suspension geometry. It is the ONLY subframe in the aftermarket industry with hydroformed frame rails. The hydroformed frame rails feature strength and stiffness, precise quality and repeatability. Hydroforming preserves the steel’s strength and stiffness because it is performed at low temperatures, unlike traditional high temperature processes which decrease material strength. This subframe ended up in Kristian Nyberg's Speed Society built 1969 Camaro.
