Re: 557 is a goer!!!!!

Getuted congrats on the engine, that is some work. If it's not too much trouble could you let us know the engine specs, you know, everything you did to get so much power and torque. I'm curious cause I wanna build one of these things one day and I'm just curious how expensive and hard it'll be. Good work.

Thats fully sick mate. I've just bought a 429 and would be happy 580 lb/ft at 3,200 and 400 odd ponies.
