You bet there are larger motors that you can use....but why in the world would you want to change them out when you are running 1100+hp???

I do believe the largest you could go would be the 572ci. Now, I doubt you'd be able to drop it right in...you'd probably have to make a few minor mods here and there...or, heck...it might go right in.

the only time you have too much power is when you are losing traction at idle.


you can go with an LSX block or the 572. or convert a semi diesel motor to gasoline

Forget a bigger motor. Just put dual small block 350 motors in...

I would venture to guess his car looks something like this and the 1100+ HP is from the stickers.

This guys last visit was June 14th of this year...so, if he wants to talk about this more, or needs more help on this subject, he can request this thread be reopened. I don't think he's going to be answering any questions any time soon. So, rather than rehash all the conversation without the OP here to comment, we'll just hold off on this thread for a bit.
