That motor is in the OSO classifieds,that's a nice little package I wish I had the $12,000 clams to snag it.

Why do "540" Bulldogs have 500 Bulldog flame arrestors ?

A 540 Bulldog only puts out 500HP ? Hope it puts out more than that. Doesn't a 500 Bulldog put out 490HP ?

I may be wrong here but there is no "540" Bulldog. The "Bulldog" engine is a 540 cubic inch, 500 hp engine build with real good parts which makes it very reliable and a good candidate for upgrades to higher hp without having to rebuild bottom end. Its also a "blueprinted" engine and not a crate motor. Thats why its so expensive.

Formula31 you're correct ! (500 Bulldog = 540c.i.)

There is no 540 Bulldog ! It's a 500 Bulldog !

Thought they had something new
