For some of the cars on display at the 2015 SEMA Show, it really is all about what’s under the hood. If you’re an aftermarket company that specializes in turbos, superchargers, intakes, or EFI, the bodywork is just there to keep your beautiful engine dry. At least, that’s what we heard the engineers say.
We’ve collected images of some of our favorite engines, from late-model EcoBoost Mustang four-cylinder powerplants and supercharged COPO Camaro V8s, to classic Ford bangers and V8s from Studebaker and Chrysler. There’s also the massive turbocharged Mercury Racing DOHC big-block that’s fully plumbed in a beautiful carbon-fiber Charger, which might be our favorite of the show. Enjoy the horsepower!
