What are we comparing to ?

Well Yeah, LSX 454 wins gas sipper contest.

Warren Johnson's 632 ci V8 BBC blew past you running 6's at 210 mph in 1/4 mile though.

Well since you are going to be unreasonable and talk about a motor none of us could own, I'll run your BBC with this LSx

DAMN! So that's what 6 seconds looks like!

That Camaro violated the line so bad that he must be color blind.

Screw USF....we're talking about UCF! Junkman, even YOUR jaw would hit the floor if you hung out at the Student Union for more than 3 minutes.

As for all the other insanity going on in this thread...let's keep a few things in mind. Reliability, MPG and overall driver friendliness.

You didn't really expect a 4 page thread to stay on task did you?

Its only partially True.
Many could own a 632 ci BBC.
Just have be resourceful & know drag racers having a very bad week. $10 K cash would help to get them thinking.
In the past at Chicago Drag Expo in St. Charles, IL when they still had Used parts- Racers Swap Meets, I seen them 632's sell.

500 + CFM intake ports non ported yet are the baseline standard today in big inch BBC & Hemi Mopar.

I said normally aspirated...

When John Lingelfelter was still alive, He built a few destroked BBC Twin turbo charged pushing over 4,000 HP on the Super Flow water brake engine dyno @9,000 RPM's.
About 20 years ago now.
He set the way for modern Twin Turbo & 100+mm single turbo domestic V8 engines.
He also experimented with 2 stage Turbo Chargers.
WOT Boost pressures over 65 psi. Methanol alcohol fuel used.

OK you got me on the N/A thing, I missed that part

You gotta admit it's an impressive setup though. The most impressive part to me is this,

" Making this feat even more impressive is the fact that this engine still features cathedral-port cylinder heads, a hydraulic roller valvetrain, and a GM cast iron engine block."

Those Pro stock cars aren't using factory GM stuff.

No. Of course not. Especially when we are talking about upgrades.

I could just see finishing the project and she walks out into the garage. There's a hole cut in her hood, she's getting 3 MPG and you can't leave a stoplight without lighting the tires for 2 blocks.

I had that problem when I first got the El Camino back from the shop!

But it would be fun This grin is all you would have for days after a short drive. Ok now imagine leaving a light next to some kid with an import and a "fart can". That alone would tempt me to do it.

The kid would run the light, scream to the next block and turn right at the first cornet. That's what fart can guys do.

I know the LS Iron blocks are Super Strong.
Next big project I start, I will give serious thought to LS- LSX power.
Read a few articles on GM LS Catherdral port heads here & there.
LS engines will be around a long time too with Racers & street driven Vettes & Hotrods.
