The street show this season has been dominated by Dominator's use of the 33 Dodge, technically a 34 as he discovered during his year-long search for parts. Despite the minor differences in the door shape, grill, and fenders, Dominator showcases the adaptability of the vehicle, proving that it's not just a race car but a canvas for continuous improvement.

Before the season kicked off, Dominator and his team committed to a substantial rework of the Dodge 33-34 Coupe, focusing on a rear-end overhaul. The updates have been methodically chronicled, demonstrating the dedication and hard work that goes into maintaining a top-tier street machine.


What sets this upgrade apart is the involvement of Dominator's daughter in the engine's machine work. A testament to the family-oriented approach to racing, Dominator proudly shares that his daughter had the opportunity to learn from the experts at Stop Technologies. She not only honed the block but also balanced the crankshaft, gaining invaluable experience in engine building.

The heart of the Dodge 33-34 Coupe remains a formidable 426 Hemi, or perhaps a 526 Hemi - the details are not crystal clear, echoing the raw power that fuels this street beast. Dominator's openness about the car's old-school features, such as the absence of roller rockers and the use of a traditional camshaft, adds a touch of authenticity to the narrative.

One of the significant changes in the pipeline is the shift to fuel injection, a move aimed at providing versatility in fuel choices, from pump gas to E85 to straight methanol. Dominator emphasizes the practicality of this modification, allowing for seamless transitions between fuel types with minimal adjustments.


As the Dodge 33-34 Coupe undergoes a radical transformation with an 871 blower and fuel injection, Dominator provides insights into the challenges faced, particularly with the header design. The commitment to transparency is evident as he shares that the initial vision did not align with the final execution, emphasizing the importance of trial and error in the upgrade process.

Safety is also a key consideration, with a small but strategically placed roll cage added to enhance driver protection without compromising comfort. Dominator assures fans that the car will maintain its user-friendly appeal, even with these safety features in place.

In the coming weeks, viewers can expect a firsthand look at the finished product, with videos showcasing the initial fire-up, test drives, and any challenges faced along the way. Dominator's commitment to authenticity shines through as he promises not to hide any hurdles encountered during the three-week upgrade process.
