Default KE Article in Poker Run Mag - Engine??

Anyone check out the article Poker Runs mag did recently on Keith Eickert? REally a nice article. Did you check out the pic of the engine under development in his shop? Looks like a twin turbo with a Vortec on the front? Rumors are flying!

Any validity to the rumors? the motor pictured looks more like a mock-up motor than a development motor. might just be two seperate projects using the same block but who knows...would love to see something outrageous from KE.

Those engines are not rumor. They are in the OL cat and my friend Joey Padovano has them in his 44 MTI. 1700 hp each.

That's what I thought but didn't have any pics to reference. His pic in the article has a turbo and a supercharger on the same block...maybe to drum up some controversy/free publicity!

Bill and Joey's motors are Vortech, the ones pictured in the artical are TWIN TURBO and Vortec.
Probably just a mock as someone else suggested. Maybe to help have some common plumbing between the two setups?

Front motor is a Vortech. There was a motor on the other side that was a twin turbo. It just looked like one motor.
