We were discussing Big Chiefs car last night and it's Pontiac V8 engine.
A group of us long time Poncho racers on a closed group.

It has a 481 ci Butler Pontiac V8.
Has over 1000 Hp Normal aspirated off the boost.
Turbos have been upgraded to Twin 98's.
On High Boost it has 4750 Horsepower Confirmed.

It's The Most Poweful Pontiac V8 engine ever built.
Puts Kaufman to shame.

That is 3,750 Hp more power adder.

The Crankshaft used is a mystery.
I think it's a Crower 4340 Billet.

Or a Sonny Bryant Billet piece.

For guys into Drag Racing like me you wasting your time unless you have a +500 Hp Power adder.
Need 1000 Hp + .

Yes.
They never say how long they last though.
It's not indefinitely on a used junkyard engine.

Right way is Old School way.
Build it from a bare block ground up.
Blue print all by hand.
Like a high end endurance engine.
Use for Drag.
