This engine was developed because I felt there was need for it. For many years I would see these Injected blown motors try to be driven on the street without success. Massive surge idle and light switch throttle made them very hard to control on the street. This engine is the solution for that. This combo has low compression and hydraulic roller camshaft, so it can be cruised on the street using 91 octane pump fuel. We’ve also worked out the tune-up. This sucker will idle nice at 1400 RPM and take throttle smoothly. You can now have that crazy Fuel Blown Look, Throttle response, and an absolutely insane sound and be able to put a bunch of street miles on it. You’ll be able to hear this motor from two blocks away.
