It's a Pat Musi Racing Engine. The owner said it would pass everything but a gas station.



From what I see on NHRA racing Pat Musi is still turning out race motors.
DROOL....

daddyjeep87 Oh you people..... All that money for 300/330. A junk Yard 5.3 will do that for $500 and have potential for so much more. A cam and good exhaust will get you in the 400 range. Dollar for dollar compared to a hopped up 4.0 you could have 800.

Horsepower doesnít just happen by adding fuel.

Getting 250hp with a 4.0 is slightly easy. 300 takes quite a bit more work and dollars. 350 gets expensive, and that 400hp is almost dreamy.

What a nice power curve chart though. In an I6 I bet that feels meatier than a V8!
Fuel and air is what makes power, and the ability to use the two. Like I said, custom intake. It's more air.

This is a copy of the one I was talking about: https://cliffordperformance.net/stor...em-w68-headers

They claim it more than doubles power.

Since I wear Dad jeans i'm good to go. I have a "sticky" holster but can't stand to leave my shirts untucked. My setup fits neatly in either front pocket. I use a small tape measure to disguise the shape of what is in my pocket

bruinjeeper That time of year again... free hardtops lol.

This is like 3$ USD.

Use the change saved on some Krylon satin black, MEK and scotch bright pads

I don't really get out much either.

Chris, why bother with the race engine build when you can double your horsepower with a custom intake? There's a company that makes dual-carb intakes for the 4.0 that doubles the HP while keeping everything else stock. With enough finagling you could make fuel injection work with it.

mark1305 When I was at the stage of my USCG career that I was doing lots of law enforcement boardings the CG was still using the 1911. I loved that gun. Glad I moved on up and away from boardings just as the CG switched to either 9mm or .40 cal. The .45 wouldn't ricochet around an enclosed compartment like the higher velocity rounds. Seen the results from a couple of accidental discharges. And the knock down power - in WW II my father saw a 1911 accidentally discharged in a barracks. Hit a soldier from the side in his buttock and carried him across a bunkbed.

All this gun talk, and on page 1911 to boot. I only have ten 1911s.

mark1305 That cost is just a guesstimate on my part. But once I visited a race engine shop up in GA with my nephew who was dropping off a part for his dad's hotrod. Got a tour, and the owner built motors for mostly amateur stock car/modifieds racers. Line boring the crank and cam journals, decking the block, checking alignment of cylinder bores, line boring the lifter galleries if needed. Then putting it all together with the good stuff totaled about $25K back around 15 years ago.

Really?
That would get me in trouble with the wife. As in sleeping on the couch trouble.

I was about three minutes into this when the phone rang. It was my bank.

They’d got an unspecified suspicious activity test authorization on my debit card and I was overdrawn by $28,500.00. They asked what I’d been doing online and told me the chips in the new cards could sense intent...
