Big block?

Those of you interested in a bit more power than the norm, how about fitting one of these?

Let's not start on what sort of gearbox to use.

Re: Big block?

I just worked out the power to weight ratio. If you ignore the weight of the car you'd put it in (bear in mind the engine weighs 2300 tons!) you get a power to weight ratio of just 47 bhp per ton!

mind you, 5,608,312 lb/ft of torque would sink you back in the seat!
