Have you as a fan of racing ever wondered what really goes into these engines that you see blasting down the track?
The world is full of awesome outlaw style race cars from Drag radial to Pro Modified and the mainstream has been consumed with twin turbo power plants. At 600-plus cubic inches with these massive turbos out in front, the limits seem to be endless for the power ranges you can to reach. One of the most recent creations comes out of Steve Morris Racing Engines in Muskegon, Michigan.
The details of such an engine are often not released as it’s the intimate details that make these engines unique, but as for this one, we know it’s a 600 cubic inch big block with a set of Big Chief 14-degree cylinder heads. Built for Robert at Chiseled Performance, a pair of 91mm turbochargers were chosen for the motivation behind this monster, but to make such a build even more fun, Morris posted a challenge for his followers on Facebook to guess the peak horsepower. The one factor given was that they would not push beyond 30psi of boost during the dyno session.
Many followers chimed in with their guesstimates and even more impressive is that fact that two people guessed the result almost exactly. Running the engine at 7000rpm, the big block cranked out 3,132.7 horsepower at 29.94psi which is extremely impressive considering the fact that with more boost this monster would easily go way beyond this point. Is 4,000 horsepower on the horizon for engines like this one?
