I would find a way to contact the "Tractor Pull" guys. They tandem engines in their tractors.

Uh no, in that case ... The blower is taking 800-1000 horsepower to run 35-40 psi into a motor, problly making 5-6000 horsepower, think top fuel!

Just to say that you can look at the hurst harry oldsmobile with the two 455 big blocks supercharged. There were running off of a toronado trans. Neat car to think about.

That was Ed Roth's Mysterion and I am in the process of building a reproduction as we speak! It had a custom fiberglass body, bubble top, twin Ford FE engines, Cruise-O-Matic transmissions, and '48 Ford rear ends and a ridiculous coil spring suicide front end. I have all the mechanical parts rounded up and will begin throwing plaster this winter for the body and cyclopse nose piece.

Tractor pullers use an oil drive of some sort. Not exactly sure how it works, but it only allows the engine to add power to the drive train. In the older tractors some motors were tied directly together. Did not work very well, because they would fight each other and if one started missing or something the other motor had to carry the bad one. I have heard these drives they use are very expensive. Just something to concider...

I think putting two V8s inline would be neat. You know, give it the appearance of being one motor.

Ah, memories of the great old front engined, twin engined Top Gas rails of the 60s. Two Chevys, two hemis, two FEs, a hemi and a Chevy, every combo you could think of. Those were the days when there was still some creativity in drag racing.
