Has anyone built a inline six (292) for drag racing? What kind of Horse Power would it make and would you have to use a turbo? I think you can get to 300 Cid. Was thinking it would be different, I know the 6's have a lot of torque.

theres a couple websites out there that sells stuff to hot rod your 6 cyl (ive looked into it)

Its expensive.

if you wanted to have a rape ape 6cyl I would do a turbo.

I have a 292 in a 63. The car is all steel and weighs about 3100lbs. The motor has no nitrous or turbo. It ran 12.6's at close to sea level and cost more than GM crate 383. To me it is a lot more fun than a sbc, but it is not cost effective if you are worried about et vs $$. Building a turbo or nitrous motor would get the power cheaper, but power to power the sbc is cheaper.
Check out inliners.org if you are interested in inlines. The bulletin board has a section for boosted motors.

There was a guy at my home track about a year or two ago that was running a 6 cylinder in a 68 Nova. Not sure what he had dome to it, but I know that it was naturally aspirated and was running 14s.
