    Stacy showed the motor on the show and said it was coming to GM Performance Parts dealers soon. But it hasn't showed up on the Scoggins-Dickey website yet. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I saw one at the SEMA show in vegas at the beginning of last november. It will come in 2 versions. The every day fast as f /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gifck and super fast as f /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gifck. 2 different comperssion ratios 10:1 and 12:1 but no info on price. One of the GM reps said that it would be competitive with the big chrysler hemi crate and it's around 13K.

    Looks like there's a typo in the story in the 2nd link. It says it's an 8.4 liter engine, then calls it the 572 ci. But my calculator says that 572 ci equates to just under NINE POINT FOUR liters! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif You'd think that someone at GM would have caught that detail... /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I saw that too! Looks like it would be the hot ticket for the racing scene.

    Boy, Jess. Your not posting about this UBER high horsepower engine in hopes that we poor saps buy it and start snapping driveshafts, do you? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    It looks sick, but i can build a hell of a rig for $13,000 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    My Dad was just looking through the new Summit catalog and read off to me about a 540ci BBC for 10K and one for 11K. No info on these on their site though... I think they are around 665 and 685 Hp..
