I haven't heard anything but I do know this guy who works for a car mag that has his ear to the ground. I'll hit him up for some info but if it does produce 400+kW N/A then it must be a bit of a pig to drive.
Also I was just reading an article at Autospeed.com of the 2001 Normally Aspirated Small Block Hp Hero which is a 355ci VK Commodore. It made around 436 Rwhp at the Summernats, which is around 620Hp at the engine.
Now if this TE-50 is making what it claims, 500Kw/670Hp, then it should well and truely be a contender for the 2002 Hp Hero at next years Summernats, if he's entering it??
This is way cool, isnt it good to see people do good stuff on late model cars.
Cant wait to read more about it
Maybe a Tickford HSV car showdown at Horsepower Heros in the NA comp. Now wouldnt that be that would be cool.
The NA class was won by Nathan Wells with 400.9hp, now I believe the class has been opened up to include all small blocks not just restricted to 400ci :evil: . So anything over 400rwhp will be a contender.
I be interested to see how streetable the solid roller is in this beast, Im having the pistons notched in my new short block to give me the ability to move to solid roller will be watching with keen interest
