Ford 598" W/THOR Heads N/A results
This engine was just finished and dyno'd last week. It is going in my Jetboat that I race on the Colorado River and in specific organized events.
The engine consists of:
Ford A460 18 Bolt Block 4.60 bore
Blue Thunder Gen 2 THOR Heads prepped by BES
SCAT Crank prepped by Castillo Crankshaft 4.50"
Callies Ultra I Beam Rods 6.8"
Diamond Pistons(NO Gas ports)
Comp Cams Custom Roller (proprietary grind but 284-300 is in the ballpark)
ISKY Keyed Lifters
HRE SheetMetal 2 x 4 Intake
2- Holley 1250 carbs done by Performance Carburetor, Ontario, CA
Kaase Oil Pump
Wet Sump Pan w/ Kickout(12 qts)
Royal Purple 5-30 XRP Oil
MSD Crank Trigger
Star vacuum Pump
Engine was started and broke in at 9:30 a.m. PST. Made 10 pulls and off the dyno at 1:00 p.m. PST.
Result was 1260 hp @ 7700 and 913.5 ft lbs @ 6800. With Gas Ports and a Dry Sump this engine would be knocking down 1300 hp.
There have been several requests for info, so here it is. Call if you would like this engine duplicated.
