Default What engine would you run if no rego hassles

Simple question, and please only for the Aussies (different world over here as opposed to USA)

Just imagine, emission regs dont exist, and your chassis is strong enough and approved for a 727 jet engine (so anything goes).

What would you fit.
The car you have is a 427SC model (most popular as far as kit suppliers go)

Hmmm, I wanted to add a poll with available options, but just realised I have not done it before and dont know how too.

Ok for me in that shaped car, it would have to be a 427 side oiler with 2 great big carbies, oval air cleaner with larger turkey pan. and side pipes.
Would like 700ish HP (at the treads) and a butt load of torque.

It doesn't matter how heavy it is - I'd be wetting myself just looking at it

I would still use the LS series engines with 8 throttle bodies.

I'm getting 1,000 klm out of my 2.0 litre diesel Golf for 50 litres. I don't know what it would sound like with side pipes but there would be plenty of room in the engine bay.

Great news today and time to pull out the good bottles of red. My engineeer has finally supplied a 17 page report on the calculations of the stress points on the Cobra and when I get off here, I have to email them to the RTA. Hopefully, I will then receive a new inspection date and have the car registered before the massive changes occur in NSW with the NSW RTA structure.

I'm going to go for a budget that mere mortals can afford so no 427 SO motor.

I reckon a Clevor would be the go. Dart or SVO 351 Windsor bottom end out to about 392 cubes with some alloy CHI 3V Cleveland heads on top and one of their 4 barrel manifolds.

Cheers

You could probably twist my arm. I can do an iron block 500 inch BBF for cheaper than that Dart blocked Windsor you and I have been discussing.

Default just silly

How about a twin turbo Lamborghini/Audi V10 plus the AWD system to go? Only 540kW at the wheels.
