At over $22K, I think I will pass

780 HP isn't that much horsepower for a $22k engine especially a Cheby motor.
Link Posted: 12/27/2005 3:09:35 AM EDT
$22k for something with all the technology of a Briggs and Stratton lawn tractor engine? I might be impressed for a reliable 1,000hp, but I'll bet their average customer only gets a season or two of cruising/showing off before teardown.

Sorry, but I know too many guys who have restored classics that have more powere than that and have less than $22k in the whole project...

The reason it's so expensive is that it's got my valves.

7HDL


The latest addition to GETR's stable of engines is the 7HDL, 16-cylinder engine. The "big brother" to GETR's 7FDL engine, the 7HDL delivers 6,250 ghp to the alternator. That makes this new engine the highest horsepower, production freight locomotive engine in the world.

The 7HDL engine is designed for efficiency and reliability, with isolation from the platform that eliminates the largest source of vibration in the locomotive. The twin turbochargers feed air into the 16 15.7-liter cylinders to provide a level of power for the most demanding applications. And all of this power comes in a package no larger than the 4,500 ghp 7FDL engine.



or you could always go with a GM16V265, offering 6300 BHP and a 265 mm bore, 300 mm stroke...

All day long I work with Pratt& Whitney JT9's Ge CF6's and BR211's . Ah hell the apu's in most of the airplanes develop more power then most people's hot rods.

I just don't get all weak in the knees over someone whoo has a 400 hp v-8. Don't get me wrong
400 hp V-8 are fun but nothing earthshaking.

My brother's Chevelle made 826hp at the rear wheels a few weeks ago...
That's coming from a 555 cube motor with a small shot of nitrous.

VIDEO

Edit to add...

632's generally make well over 1000hp with a little more compression and more aggressive cam.
My 632 in my old Camaro made 881hp at the rear wheels last year. That was approx 1100hp at the crankshaft.
That crate motor probably idles like a stock motor and will run on 93 octane gas.
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 4:33:38 PM EDT


If only they got the V8s to get the power/cu.in. that they can squeeze from 4 and 6 cylinders, it would be great!

The second link is more impressive, with the 351 engines producing 800+ HP though, it doesn't mention if that is turbo/supercharged and NO2 capability...



Yes but what most people dont realize is those 4 and 6 cyl engines make good horsepower but really low torque numbers. Torque is what makes the v8 dominate.

Very large boats.


I'm an Olds guy obviously.

That's a bit of money for a steel rod motor making that power. With the off brands, that's a good buy, but for a Cheby, that's not to impressive. I'm sure it's more than enough power to make your average guy blue in the face though.
