How high can a big block rev?

Re: Big Block Rev Limit Most properly rebuilt 454s will safely go about 6k without a problem depending on the cam. Stock truck and low hp car cams will run out about 5k or a little less.

How much HP can a big block make?

For a big block with the same stock components it can make in the area of about 400 to 475 or so HP and handle upwards of about 500 HP before you exceed the reliability of the stock cast pistons. This would also ring true for similar cubic inch sized engines of Ford, Chrysler, Olds, Buick, Pontiac, etc.

What increases engine RPM?

Car engine rpm increases as you press the accelerator, as does power — at least to a point. An engine doesn’t necessarily produce its maximum power at its highest rpm. Engine specifications typically present the peak horsepower figure followed by the rpm at which it occurs, such as 252 hp at 5,600 rpm.

How much HP is a 454?

Surprisingly, the 454 laid down an impressive 330 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Naturally, the truck-based 454s were tuned for torque, so having nearly 500 pound-feet wasn’t a big surprise. But like any stock engine, there was tons of power left to be squeezed out.

How do NASCAR engines make 750 hp?

And like the original 1960s engines, the valves are driven by pushrods (see this page for information of the different types of valve arrangements). The engine in today’s NASCAR racecars produce upward of 750 horsepower, and they do it without turbochargers, superchargers or particularly exotic components.

Can we make 700 hp at 8000 RPMs?

Today, we travel the path less taken to see if we can make well over 700 horsepower at somewhere north of 8,000 rpm. And, we’ll do it with non-extravagant and mostly off-the-shelf parts. We headed to QMP Racing in Chatsworth, CA to get started on this LS engine build. The foundation for any engine combination is the block.

How much can you increase the bore on a small block?

As you can see, unless we stretch the bore spacing of our original small block, it will be difficult to increase the bore much beyond about 4.155-inches (0.030-inch overbore on a stock 4.125- inch bore) for most production blocks. The reason for this is the cylinder walls become much too thin to remain stable at high horsepower and torque output.

Why build a large displacement small block?

Another good reason to build a large displacement small block that builds torque rather than horsepower is the evil stuff that can and does occur at high RPM. There is something to be said for an ultra-powerful 400-plus cubic inch small block that spins to 7,000 rpm and makes gobs of horsepower.

What was the bore size of a 1955 265ci small block?

The original 1955 265ci small block had a very small 3.75- inch bore that had grown to 4.125-inches by 1970. As you can guess, this leaves very little room to make the cylinders much larger.
