    Default Pair 572ci 950hp supercharged BBC for sale $36,000

    I have a race team in the UK running a Hunton 40 in our 'Marathon' series of racing. I am changing to diesel power(much more popular in Europe than the USA)
    As a result I have two un-used V8 petrol engines for sale. They are 572 cubic inch(9.4litre)big block Chevy and supercharged. Just been rebuilt and dyno run-in by Robin Ward of Thunderstreak fame(https://www.cowesclassicoffshore.co....aItem-iskgz1p6). His business is race cars so he is a specialist in this area(see Ferrari servicing and Group C » Damax.co.uk). They are producing about 950hp and 1200 ft/lbs of torque. If preferred the supercharger can be removed and they will give 700-750hp and better fuel consumption. Due to the nature of Marathon racing these engines have been put together with great care and attention to reliability. Electronic over rev protection has been added.
    The spec is as follows:
    Electronic ignition control which monitors speed, boost and inlet temp
    Two 4 cyclinder coils for controlled spark timing
    Two 4 barrel holly carbs
    BBS superchargers
    Holley fuel pumps
    Dual air cleaner/spark arrester
    Large baffled sumps
    Tall motorsport blocks
    4.5inch stroke and bore
    Balanced cranks, rods, pistons and flywheels.
    Steel rods
    Forged pistons with anti scuff coating
    Roller rockers
    New cams and followers
    New piston rings
    Heads rebuilt
    Carbs rebuilt
    Hi capacity oil pumps
    New water pump impellors
    Dyno run in and tested, dyno sheets available.
    Headers included


    If you seek good, solid, reliable power these engines will not let you down. Grab yourself a bargain!
    The engines are located in the UK and I can either arrange shipping(at cost)or they can be collected here. I can send you dyno sheets and photos and I can arrange for you to speak to Robin for full details.
    For a quick response I can offer them at $36,000 for the pair which is considerably less than they have cost me!!

    Default advice???

    Hi Folks

    I’d appreciate your advice…..
    I have a friend who runs a marine business in San Francisco with plenty of storage. If I shipped the engines there would they be more attractive to an American buyer? Is the fact that they are in the UK a problem?
    Secondly, how is the pricing? I looked on OSO and they seemed pretty good value by comparison.
    Anyway, your thoughts much appreciated.
    Jonathan
