    BIG CUBES FOR STREET/STRIP

    I just got off the phone a little while ago with Jacobs Performance Engines out of Columbus OH. We talked about building a large cubic engine for street duty/strip and came up with a 706ci with 10.5:1,conventional heads,custom intake and spacers and over a 1000hp plus NOS,sounded like about 16K would cover it. With that big of cubes the torque would be nuts! Just crazy stuff,lol!
    Wonder what kind of a 4 gear std. trans would handle it?
    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical
    Keep the shiney side up! 8)

    Hey guys,I'm to old to be cut'in ringers but love to make straight line power. I've tried just about every engine combo one could try on the street so I'm stepp'in it up. I race a ProMod style car so know what hp is like. I'm old school so I think a monster engine and 4 gear would be a nice snack,lol! Just wanta bang some gears with to much power thats all........and stay between the ditches,lol!
