    This is pretty cool. The same people who can build you an 800-horse 600 cid V-12 on pump gas (based on a Chevy 400 SBC) can get you an ex-IRL Chevy 3.5L V-8 racing engine detuned for street use on 91 octane pump gas.

    Of course, it would only really be good in a light car, and it likely costs alot. But who cares? Not many people (if any) can truthfully say they have an IRL motor in their car. Engine specs:

    Bore x stroke: 3.660" x 2.534"
    Displacement: 213.3 cid (3495cc)
    Induction: Ryan Faloner Racing Engines (R.F.R.E) intake, Eaton 112 supercharger, water-to-air intercooler, drive-by-wire throttle
    Fuel System: MoTeC engine management
    Oiling: Dry sump with Dailey Engineering pump
    Electrical: McLaren 200-amp alternator
    Transmission: Getrag 6-speed manual, R.F.R.E. bellhousing, Tilton 3-plate carbon fiber clutch

    Power: 560 bhp @ 8000 rpm
    Torque: 421 lb-ft @ 5500 rpm

  2. interesting link, thanks. that engine would be perfect in a compact.
     
  3. Awesome!

    Ryan Falconer kicks ass!

    I just had an idea. Imagine this in a modded Fiero. It would probaly feel like an open-wheel car! I wonder if it would fit, though.
     
  4. To bad Chevy isn't doing well in the IRL this year
     
  5. The engine could fit. But you'd need a transmission to back it up, and that Getrag is designed for a longitudinal-set engine, not transverse like the Fiero.
     
  6. Chevette haha
     
  7. It can't be mounted longitudinally?
     
  8. If it dimensionally would fit, you'de have to modify the entire transmission. Not to mention all the subsystems (cooling, oil) and have to modify a lot of lines and linkages.
