Engines you'd like magazines to build

These I think would be some neat builds, a change from the normal sbc. If you want them to build a sbc, then say why it's different from the usual ones, be it budget build, or a miracle combo that makes 480hp off a gen1 based 383 for $4000.

4.3L (262ci) Chevrolet v6
4.0 (242ci) Jeep i6 (use a AMC 258 crank for more displacement)
Buick Nailhead v8
Pontiac straight 8
Mopar slant 6
Ford inline six
Chevrolet stovebolt
AMC 327 v8

Ford flathead or even the later Y-blocks would be different than the typical builds you see.

You did not specify anything other than "engine"

So,

How about....

A radial airplane engine ..



Truly a thing of beauty.
The innerds are way cool, the technology is no different than a pushrod car motor, but the way they got all that stuff to work in a circle took the kind of design work that few can imagine.

they got hotrodded too.

If you want more power, just bolt 1 or 2 or 4 7 cylinder radial motors together.




Pratt & Whitney "corncob" motor...4360 cubic inches.

Found that stuff here...http://fastjeff57.tripod.com/

There is one like that that is over 7700 cubic inches.




If you want to see some really bizzare ways to convert fossil fuel into rotary motion, check that site out...scroll all th eway down for something like you've never seen.....a supertanker diesel.



Yeah I'd like to see the magazines do a build of one of those...

Later, mikey

Thanks Mikey - I had lost that link when I changed computers in Jan. Now I can finish reading about some strange engines.

Check these guys out, http://www.uncommonengineering.com/

One of the Hudson engines that they did had an aluminum head, stroker crank, dry sump oiling, Eaton supercharger and EFI.

I'd like to see a 86 & up SBC stroker build. But not the typical 383 (I've got one and am curious about bigger) I'm talkin' in the range of 421,427,434 cubic inches. I don't think I have seen them in the 86 & up roller SBC's before, that's what I think would be pretty cool.....But I am a Chevy Guy so I do have slight tunnel-vision.
Also what would be pretty killer ,is if they would try some of the new fuel injection systems out on the market.....Edelbrock just came out with a revision on the Pro-FLO system and a spin on the Ram-Jet style set-up...I would love to tune and not have my hands smell like gas ...Too bad I didn't wake up today and crap out $3000!!!!

Straight sixes, eights and twelves would be cool. I'd love to see a flat 6 or 8 build.

Nailhead.

A Toyota 22R. Kind of out of the norm for a magazine like Hot Rod or the like, but there is a big aftermarket for them, and they can be built considerably well without that much money.

Briggs & Stratton flatheads. Simple but fun, and anyone can build a cold blooded, lopey, loud and obnoxious B7S for like $200. Its a fun project.

Caddy Northstar.

Ford Y-block, or flathead V8.
