Our 572 Hydraulic Roller cam engine will produce 745 horse power at approx. 5900 rpm. The build sheet is at the lower part of this listing.This engine is an excellent choice for use in classic street rods, sport trucks, 4x4 trucks, and can be used as a daily driver. High mileage use is not a problem with this engine. This is engine may also be set up for use in larger work trucks or motor homes. We can also set any of our engines up for marine use.
This engine will produce more than triple the horse power of the original bbc 396, 427 and 454's and an enormous amount of torque. Pump gas friendly. For those wanting to put this engine in a classic car or sport truck, select cam choice # 1 or # 2 with the single plane intake. This engine will deliver very impressive power in the lower rpm range, and have a very high degree of drivability and long life.
Our machinists/engine builders have many years of experience in building racing engines. This very critical work is done to exacting specs and with great care. Many vendors do not have machinists with the experience or the proper equipment that we are fortunate to have. We have built engines that cost upwards of $50,000. All of our engine builders have been in the engine machining and engine building line of work for their entire working lives. Their ages range from 42 to 68. We have a total of eight machinists/engine builders.
Two year warranty, see details below.
This engine is designed to have a high level of drivability, or street manners. Cams #2 and #3 are our favorites for offering exceptional low end and mid range performance plus max drivability without needing to deepen final gearing or the need for a high stall speed torque converter.
Please read the cam info provided below on the three cam choices before purchasing this engine. It is very important that you choose the correct cam and intake for your vehicle and its intended purpose.
Here are a few good reasons why we think the 572 engine is a better choice than the stock GM bbc engine.
1. The 572 willaccelerate any heavy car much better than any of the smaller cubic inch bbc engines.
2. The exhaust note from this big block engine is much deeper than that of any of the smaller cubic inch bbc engines.
3. Installing thisengine in heavy cars or trucks without killing acceleration, or having todeepen the final gear, and needinga huge stall converter is a real plus.
4. Low maintenance with a high level of drivability.
5.Longevity and reliability.You don't have toturn the engine to a critical rpm range to produce its max hp output. There's nothing unsafeaboutrunningan enginethat's well built like this up to 5900 rpm or less depending on cam choice.The hydraulicroller cam is very reliable and will not require a bronze distributor gear.
6.Should you ever decide to sell your car or truckwith this engine, the resale value would be greatly increased.
We do a full test run on every engine we build on a test mule. When you install the engine, you must verify that the timing is set at the correct value, and the fuel to air ratio must be verified. We also include an engine stand like the one pictured, wheels included, and an engine lift plate.
The build sheet is as follows:
