8800lbs to 6500lbs depending on race length, 650 - 750 hp depending on temp/humidity, how good you were at setting up fuel injection, and if you were running 454 or 482cu. 6000 to 6200 RPM.

#3, 1:1.575, 16 1/2 x 28 or 29 depending on conditions

Thought I'll share some pics of the original 482 champion engines from 1972, we are putting in the old Kiekhaefer Aeromarine 3 currently beeing restored in Norway. As you can see this is not a common big-block from a car converted for boat , but pure racing from the early seventies. I must say Carl Kiekhaefer made a point on having his logo cast in on all the parts.....

Best regards Joern
