    I remember now

    Was driving me nuts i could not remember who built the 500 plus cubic inch small blocks, well it turns out it's Sonny Leonad. Talked to one of the people at Sonny,s and he explained to me that Sonny had in fact built a 505 small block approx 10 years ago on a after market block. Recently he built a 524ci small block for a grudge racer but that engine was based on a block cut from a chunk of billet aluminum.

    You can build a 511 right from Chevy.

    4.25 bore by 4.5 stroke LSx block.

    Cap it off with the GM LSX-DR heads and make 900 normally aspirated HP.

    Here, if you prefer, same bore/stroke in a standard small block.

    I wonder what it would cost to build that motor?? I priced the LS-7 heads and they were about 1900.00 each from GM assembled. What a awsome running engine it would be!

    To do it right, and not use offshore rods/crank and other junk... I'd imagine in the 12-14k range.
