Drag motors? So they have to be rebuilt after every 90 seconds of use?

I heard WELL North o 100k, Sonnys builds drag and Marine motors. I would have him build a pair with 8:1 compression and a hyraulic roller shaft, would still probably make INSANE hp and would live forever. I think EFI would a good idea too, IF I had the money!

If I win the powerball I will let you guys know how it turns out, lol

Wow, never heard about marine engines from Sonnys. Do they also build the 800+ and 900+ cu. n/a engines as marine engines with low compression and pump fuel friendly?

I believe Cigarette used Sonny's engines in some of their high end powerboats about 20 years ago.

Yep, he already HAS built several motors with that exact combo, The last one I saw was a 794 with low compression and Whippled/EFI setup, really sweet combo. He is mainly know for Drag motors, and builds some of the best, along with Fulton and Kaase. But, his marine stuff rocks too!
