So they started with a clean sheet of paper so to speak. That's big $$$.

The Marine exhaust on the Falconer is butt ugly, with that much $ spent you would think they could fab some gorgeous headers rather than the "ready to rot out" aluminum things.

So are they overhead cam or push rod motors

Ryan likely cares little about flash. I can tell you this- if he built them, they're impervious.

I believe the Falconers are based upon a small block Chevy with an additional four cylinders added to them.

He made a package for a 3/4 ton suburban/truck (no smog control back then on them) back in the early 90's.

His 720 looks good, wonder about pricing.

The Torque V-12 1500 was in the Vortech booth at SEMA in 2003. It had two V-7 compressors and two intercoolers but the program did not seem to progress beyond that. I have looked at adapting our twin blower system to this engine since we use the V-7 compressor albeit with the new YSi impellers and counter rotating blowers. I've run the numbers using EAP and 2000 HP is quite feasible. The main advantage of these engines is the 12 intake ports. To make the same power on a V-8 is much harder.

This is the twin blower engine in the Vortech booth at PRI this year.
