My next motor swap. The Devel 16

The warranty is out so as soon as I grenade my V's engine, I'll be stepping up to this streetable engine. I like the option of only putting down 3,000 horsepower on pump gas but if the ricers in my town get lippy I can throw race gas in, dial up the boost to 36 pounds, and have 4500 horsepower and 3500 ft-pounds of torque to wipe the autozone loving smiles off of their faces. These are good times to live in. Anyone else want one while I'm shopping? I figure we might be able to save on shipping if we grab more than one. Just let me know.

Criiiiipes... This is that crazyass presumed-to-be-vaporware car/engine... I'm genuinely surprised to even learn that any work has been done since they made those claims.

Pretty neat, but it sure does look like two SBCs glued together.

I'm sure it has LSx looks, but it's a solid billet block, single crank, and single cam engine. It's its own beast.

So, there have been LS-based billet blocks forever now, I'm not sure how taking a model of one in CAD, pressing ctrl-C and following that up with a ctrl-V and then nudging it over a few inches makes it "its own beast".

Even the pussrod galleries are the same design as the LS. The only thing I can see that might be different is that it's got substantially bigger water jackets, so the cylinder sleeves are siamesed (presumably for strength), but even that's common on large displacement LS blocks.
