I have 1994 Jeep YJ with a 4.0L HO straight six engine and three-speed automatic transmission. The automatic has its own cooler and fan on the wheelwell, and I am running an electric fan on the radiator.

Installing a Holley 750 on our C10 SBC
Many years ago, a certain enthusiastic magazine editor was making good progress on his C10 project, but then that same editor decided it would be cool to have two C10 projects going simultaneously, and the rest is history. Well, more like history still waiting to be made. To be fair, there has been a ton

Unless you have really deep pockets or have the ability to throw caution to the wind, most of us wait until the factory warranty has expired before making any significant changes to a new truck.

Jeep Gladiator JT Supercharger Kit from Hamburger's Superchargers
With a curb weight of 4,672 pounds, the wonderfully versatile but nonetheless large Gladiator Rubicon tips the scales at least 200 pounds heavier than even the portliest four-door Wrangler Rubicon powered by the same 285-horsepower Pentastar V-6—and it’s more than a 500-pound weight penalty over a two-door Pentastar-powered Wrangler Sport. That’s a lot of extra

Installing Edelbrock’s 6.6L Duramax Cylinder Heads
Normally, when issues like damage and high mileage make replacing the cylinder heads on a 6.6L Duramax diesel engine necessary, most people use rebuilt stock heads.

Tech: Ford 6.0L Power Stroke Garrett PowerMax Turbo Install
Diesel engines need two things to make power: air and fuel. We know that’s grossly oversimplified, but it’s true. If you increase the engine’s ability to ingest air, you can add more fuel and thus make more power. On a diesel engine, that often means adding a different (or another) turbocharger. While there are lots
