This beast of a big-block Chevy is a two-year project that finally is finished and Dyno-tested and we couldn’t be happier with it.
In fact, after a bit of tuning, it produced over 800 ft-lbs of torque and 1,010 horsepower without a power adder.
This single carb monster would be sick in your next project car, truck or boat.
