Makes sense! Everytime I read a article or story about that engine and it being like a 3XX CI, I think to myself what the hell! I thought speedster was using a 427? But I'm still not sure

I actually opted for the protected flip stop switch and it will be mounted in an out of the way spot where it shouldn't be able to be inadvertently toggled open and then toggled on...
Still would be funny...

Yes, the SST will be there since it is registered as Supercar #009. Those videos are pretty addicting and you sometimes lose a sense of how truly advanced these setup are. 1000+HP and 20+mpg with air conditioning all on 91 octane pump gas.

We basically went down in CI sizing. Orginally thought 454/440, then 427, 418, 406 and came up with 388. Pretty awesome bore/stroke relationship and incredibly efficient in a boosted setup. Large piston surface likes to be pushed with boost. Compare the 388 TT at 15 psi with the Alien 427 TT at the same 15 psi. The numbers tell the tale.


Also if you were so inclined you could quickly change the cam and turbos and run the thing up in the 8-8.5k rpm range for some truly sick track runs.

Every time out there I see and hear about that one. Agreed - it IS a sick one.

I'd feel like I had an indestrucable motor if I could just have a FEW of the innovative parts and ideas here. lol

Just build me a rotating assembly and block, I can swap out everything else as they age.

I need money to buy the stuff you do with the money you spend on the stuff you need to do the things you could do with the money I don't have to give you.
