are you serious?! Their smallest motor is like 8 grand!?

Why not just buy a hemi cuda if you've got that kind of dough to spend on the motor alone?!

Take a look at this engine setup. Look at the parts list and dyno sheet.


Something like 629 trq @ 2500
509 hp @ 5000
Does this sound good on pump gas if you need more power put a super charger or blower on it the compreesion looks a bit high. So go with Nitrous you will be happy.
This is the engine I'm building for my 55 out of a 427 Tall Deck that no one likes.

You can get a ZZ502--502hp/567ft/lb for about 7k....

The 572 is closer to that 13k...and the have two flavors....

There u go-


Yeah the 502's are nowhere near 13k. The mopar hemi crate motors are around that much. In any event, anytime I have to spend 13k on anything, let a lone a street motor who's numbers I could have probably got myself for about 4-6 thousand, I'm not goign to say its "cheap!!!"
