If you have dreams of being a professional NHRA drag racer, then we’ve got the engine for you. This big block Chevrolet V8 spits out a mind-boggling 1,250-horsepower at 7,700 RPM and an earth shattering 970 lb-ft of torque at 6,300 RPM, according to the seller who dyno’d the 632 cubic-inch beast. The seller also includes a long list of parts that went into making this race engine.
However, all that power comes at a cost, and more sensible minds will realize that for this engine’s “Buy It Now” price of $39,995 you can also get yourself a brand-new Chevrolet Camaro 2SS (and save $1,845 in the process). In this instance, we may just agree with our more sensible compadres. Because even after purchasing this racing engine, you’ll still need to fork over more money for a body and chassis to pair it with.
If you’re not one to give up on your dreams, then this monster Chevrolet V8 seems like an awesome piece to kickoff your future as a professional racing driver. For everyone else, we recommend spending your stacks on a new Camaro 2SS. You won’t regret it.
