400ci n/a carbed 960hp dynoed

The old man was at his mates workshop today as he bulid quite a bit of gear for this guys drag cars,the guy just finished building his new engine,first few runs he got 960hp @9000rpm out of the 400ci ford,prostock engine, twin holley fed engine .
this is awsome power from an N/a V8 ,
9000 rpm in a V8 in it self is unreal

Its just me in the Wagon

Which block? Surely it's not a destroked 460 (can't imagine it to be a 400 "M" series for one second)? Is that RWHP or at the flywheel?

Good figures for a car on a track - scary on the road...

The figure is expected to rise by 40hp with metering blocks and inlet manifold changes ,I want to know crank/rods/piston specs my self.

A stroked 351? That's a 400M.

Let's see... 4 inch bore -> 3.979" stroke.

At two strokes per rev (one up, one down), that's 7.958 inches. 9000 RPM is 150 revs/second.

(7.958 150) 12 = 99.472 feet per second!

That's pretty well in the danger zone; which is why I thought it's likely to be a larger bore.

I thought a 400CI small block cleveland was available, but rare?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

400m has a different block to 'normal' clevelands. 400 clevo is a truck motor, this motor will most likely be a SVO block

Rare here but heaps in the US, only thing there is not much performance parts available for Cleveland engines in the US.

1 inch taller and big block bolt pattern for the trans is the only difference.
