"Driving this engine is Wild. It behaves like an everyday ride. Cruises on the freeway at low revs, it's responsive and tractable around town but sounds like a Hot Rod should. People know you are packing something when you pull up. When you get on it is where your mind is blown. Instant, I mean INSTANT power is available that makes you laugh to yourself how INSANE this is."  

- John Reyes, Owner of an NRE 427 LS 2.9 Whipple
