As much as I hate it, Hal is right, I mean it's not physics and I won't get into it with you why it's not, but more cubes means more power.It's a law of physics equally undeniable as gravity: THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT
The LSX 510 C.I. is probably the absolute pinnacle of street performance, and it's a small block. By pinnacle I mean it's a well rounded motor, small and light so it doesn't off the balance on the car. Is fairly well mannered for the amount of power it is capable of putting down and can be used in a DD or quasi-DD car.Yeah I'm behind the times!!! LOL All the Big Cubic inch motors (AKA BIG BLOCKS) are still beating your Favorite Small modern LS engines AND the Small Import motors too! Steve get a life Dude and a clue! If I were to build a 496 Turbo OR a 500 shot!! You kids would shut your mouth! Right now my cash is going to my son @ OSU when He Graduates I will have a Big Cubic Inch motor. Put that in your Ass and smoke it!
Ok, now let's get technical. Larry Larson runs a 565 C.I. BBC. He crams it in a 66 Nova so he can get away with running a race motor on the street. He gets to skip any emissions standards that were not in place in 1966...Being he is from Missouri, there are no restrictions on any car before 1968. Had he tried this in the same car in California (or the 13 other states using the "piggy-back" provision), the car would not of passed as they have a special waiver granting them the right to regulate cars as far back as 1966. Granted he would of probably just put it in a 1965 or older car and done the same but that doesn't change the fact that he uses a technicality to run a full on race motor on the street.Did you Fail to see the Fastest Street Car in the WORLD STEVE?? If you did here's a reminder!!! I guess He's behind the Times Too... Smart Ass.
