    I was lucky enough to stumble onto Trucks this weekend, do ask how, first time I've seen it in a while!
    But anyways they are puting a new GM crate motor in their project copperhead, supposedly a 570 c.i. 620 hp 650 ft lb, motor.
    Anyone know anything about this?
    Better yet anyone see the show?

    yeah i saw the show i put a post in the garage section. i want one bad but it will probably cost two times what my truck did. that is one big crate engine. i think i could live with 620 hp. i hope this makes the price of the 502 go down a little. i though it was a 572 and had 620 ft lb of torque and 620 hp though

    Don't know about the numbers exactly, but it does sound very interesting!
    I agree the price will most probably be twice as much, kind of like a Merlin Motor.
    Like to find out though!

    You hope it makes the price of the 502 go down, I hope the price of the 383 goes down, lot of money for that motor. Some of us still worry about smog inspections, I can get a 383 to squeak by /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    my friends at work used it as a point to make fun of my `little 454' and whatnot, knowing I;m a gearhead at heart...

    oh well, one of these years,
