Shoot for 700hp. I think you'll make that with no problem. We made 615 out of a basic 383.

...

thanks for all the comments.

my engine builder is actually in the US (Palm Springs this weekend and then Bradenton) to attend the ProMod competition.

after his return he will dyno the engine.....I'll keep you informed.

I'm really exited about the outcome and especially the effects the new Pro-Systems SV1 will bring.

dyno run

hi all,

a little update. the motor is still on the dyno . at the first run we found a bad head gasket that is water leaking to three cylinders and forced us to take the motor to pieces again.

the new SV-1 carb failed at the next dyno run. The motor stumbled under load and was flooded with E-85. After a couple of hours of discussing the prob - we have tried a 700cfm 4-barrel carb. Concerning the much too small carb we only rev it up to 5000rpm and made 728HP .

I'm very exited what the engine will do with a carb that really fits. The SV-1 is back at the producer for an overall check.

greets
carl
