Now that's weird for me, at first the pics and everything comes up clear then the whole background and pics goes dark, in fact so dark it's hard to see the pics. and impossible to read the print :shock:

Here are some pictures and the text for the engine. There are also links for other sites with the same engine.

Itís highly likely that at this very moment Iím the only member of the media staring at over 100 high-resolution images of what is undeniably the sexiest engine ever created by man. The images are arranged in chronological order, a veritable instruction manual detailing the assembly of a hemi-headed monster that Mother Mopar could never in her wildest dreams imagine. Itís not her fault. Except for a few race cars, Mopars were built for the masses. This masterpiece is altogether different. It was designed to ingest, compress, and explode mass quantities of atmosphere and manmade fuel, creating power to be harnessed and turned into friction, accelerating a racecar to unheard of speeds. Mike Moranís turbocharged bullet is machined entirely from billets of aluminum and will reportedly build 4,400 hp. How? Stay tuned to Hot Rod Magazine to find out.

Still wanna see the heads . . All of the Head(s)!

But as a Machining exercise, it is a work of Art!

On the other hand, there's far cheaper ways of arriving at 4500 HP . .

Jus' sayin' . . .

You're right about that, back in the day when i was going fast (mid 80's) the alcohol funny cars wasn't making anywhere that kind of HP, before the introduction of the screw type blowers, i mean 6.50 at 220 was hauling azz then, now they are running 5.60 at 250 plus.
But on the other hand they are only 500 cu in.
