Bill Martens is back to give us another dose of Chevrolet Performance crate engine goodness. In this video, he goes over some of the highlights and specifications of the ZZ572/720R engine, a racing engine that puts out 727 hp at 6,300 rpm and 680 lb-ft of torque at 4,900 rpm. With that sort of power, Chevrolet claims that this beast of an engine can propel your drag car down the strip within 9 seconds.
The price tag of $18,000 may seem like a lot, but it’s really not. Sure, it might cost more than a brand new Sonic, but there are Ferrari engines that cost more than a brand new C7 Corvette Z06, so what does that tell you?
That $18K buys you a top-fuel drag engine that’s got quite a list of specs, from massive, rectangular cylinder head ports to forged internals. Hit play to hear Bill give you all the details of this magnificent engine.
