Small block 6800rpm! That's going to be one expensive small block

I thought it was the twin turbo 557 engine without the turbos

The Turbo motors are actually 552 CI

It is a NA version

It is NOT a small block

It is also priced right in between a 700 & 1100

Look for 2 year warranty and 400+ hours before rebuilds. And rebuilds will be way WAY less than the turbo motors is my guess

This engine might have just done for the I/O market what the 400 has done.
Maybe not quite but time will tell.

2 of these in a M35 Dcb probably go 145
368 Skater 145-150

High revs, so probably 1.4-1.5 gears with smaller wheels means less slip

Very cool I guessed this years ago can't believe it took so long! Makes perfect sense!

Ok not a small block, then even more $$$$. If a 700 with drive is $70-$80k then this 860 will be $90k+. Emphasis on the +.

I also see there's a 1750 that runs on 117 and spins to 6800!
