Whack a pair of these in your poker boat.

SPECIAL EDITION GM HEMISPHERICAL HEADED ENGINE
WITH 2150 + NATURALLY ASPIRATED HORSEPOWER !!
*** The First Ever 1000+ Cubic Inch V8 Drag Racing Engine***
Sonny's is proud to announce that we are building, which we believe is the first 1000+ cubic inch V8 Engine for drag racing applications.
Craig Olson from CEO racing, and it's major sponsor Rescue Voice, located in the Seattle Washington area, is the customer who will be taking delivery of this Monster later this year.
The new edition for Craig, will be this 1005 cu. in. 2150+ Naturally Aspirated Horsepower V8 Engine that will feature Sonny’s New fully in-house CNC ported Special Edition GM Hemispherical Cylinder Heads with the Ultimate Pro Stock Porting, for maximum Horsepower. Other components will feature SAR/Custom Titanium valves, PSI springs, SAR Special Billet aluminum block with 2 inch raised cam, to accommodate the Custom 70 mm camshaft, Sonny Bryant Billet Crankshaft, GRP billet Aluminum rods, Mammoth SAR/ custom pistons, with special ring package, SAR/CE 1.062 keyed lifters, 1.031 tool steel taper-wall pins, SAR/T&D/Jesel shaft mounted rocker system, Jesel belt drive, Custom Dailey 7 stage Lightweight dry sump oiling system, ATI balancer, MSD Ignition, SAR Sheet Metal Pro Stock intake, Featuring SAR/ Accufab Throttle Bodies, Custom Big Stuff EFI, Sonny's Billet valve covers, and a MSD Pro Series Starter to turn over the 1005 Cu. in. Beast.
Wonder what their life span is before rebuilds?
Engines are getting extreme off the shelf nowdays.
Probably not worth a dam in a boat as it's a drag engine, but what a beast.

Drop the compression a bit, replace the aluminum rods with titanium or steel, change the cam specs a bit and walla.
there is an article on it in the last Hot Rod I think. it shows all the components of it and states that there is going to be a street version of it with lower comp. etc. the physical size of it is like comparing a small block to a big block. very impresive piece though.
Any cooling provisions?
I am curious what these will sell for? Obviously at that stroke and bore size they cannot be used as a marine high performance endurance engine and the cost to rebuild would be pretty stiff also.
Nice part, but it ain't gonna work in "Joe Boaters Boat!" Dream on , its fun reading the idle chit-chat!
Ray @ Raylar
how fast will it throw a rod throught the block .
It probably wont, those billet blocks are usually designed to throw the rods into the pan and even if it does they sell blow out patches for the blocks!! or at least that is the case for keith black hemi's
They can keep the damn thing for 9x,000$ a pop LOL
