One of my customers, Lewis Racing Engines, just got done with a 555 CID. It is a pump gas 11 to 1 engine single Dominator with a set of Boggs 24 degree Edelbrock Victors and a solid roller "cam picker" special. I'l post the sheet when up but she is 898HP @ 6900 and still 870HP @ 7500. Torque was 742#/ft peak, don't have the rpm as of yet. She will idle at 1000 rpm. Cam is a tad over 800" lift and in the mid 260 @ .050.

Now for the unreal part. . .this is going in 4 door Biscane on the Big island of HI. 4 speed car. Should make for some real FUN.....

Widow,
No and when he says its got air. . .well nevermine.

Lucky,
Mike is top notch. When he called on this project about me "picking' the cam for it I said sure. He and Darlene are good people along with the "pack".

GN7,
Dart board of course but being an air car I hung the board outside so I could adjust for wind conditions.

Peak torque of 742#/ft was at 5400 rpm. Hmm, dual carbs and this may be "jetable"....

Chris,

i am thinking of doing a similar engine but on E-85.
Care to guess at HP/TQ numbers with 13-1 OR 14-1 your cam pick on E-85???

At over .800 lift will the valve train survive limited use on the street?

Thanks, Jim

Jim would not guess at this time. Anytime you get into this kind of power it may say street car but it is a race car on the street. Therefore maintenance will be more frequent then if it was a 700HP mill.

Yup, you have impressed me.
which makes me wonder about these HP numbers from a lot smaller motor, a LOT less heads etc.

821hp @ 7100 rpm out of a 467.....
12:1 and some 110 made 821hp and was nothing special.....

GM Mark IV four bolt block. 4.31 x 4.00
GM steel crank
Eagle 6.135" rods, Cosworth pistons, JE rings
Canfield 310cc heads with very mild portwork, 2.25/1.88
Ede. Victor TR w/(2) 1050's
Straub custom roller .717/.663 261/266
Dan Olson wet sump
MSD crank trigger and Crane ignition

Made 821 @7100 679 @5500on Trick 110, 34*
total. Engine held <5% power deviation over 2000rpm

Care to explain?

or better still explain to me how a motor with 88 less CID, heads not even in the same league, and a LOT less cam, "only" made 77 less HP than the 555???

You posted it, so explain why this is so confusing? You are more confusing than this post.

Question seems to be clear as a bell to me.
What is clear is that you are only talking about 1.14 HP per C.I. Thats not unbelievable. And the numbers you are referring to are at 6900 vs 7100. Thats a no brainer for most of us. Torq X RPM /5252 remember? And then there are those that still just don't get the fact that it isn't about octane. Never has been, never will be. Its about energy content. Pump does not have it. As energy content goes, pump is in the toilet. Period. I can show dyno pulls with 15HP diff between 2 race fuels of the same octane. Between race and pump, its no frickin contest. When you come up with some truley hard to swallow, drag it on here. But there no big surpise here. But I give you all the credit in the world for trying to start something. Maybe if you were to take some of this up with Bob first you wouldn't come off looking sooo dumb:)hand
