Default Tyler Crockett or R. ZUL

Both make Naturally Aspirated motors in the 750-800 hp range.

If you go blown and run boost alot, your engine life is way down.

Default Try these on for size

These are not for sale. However, somebody recommended Dave as Wesco:

The only problem i have had in 3 seasons was blowing a spark plug out of the aluminum head due to someone cracked the porcelain when installing it,luckily the spark plug threads were still in the head i was down only as long as it took me to pull out the old plug and put in another one.When the plug blew the center out of it i was running about 80 mph ,it sounded like i had a air compressor under my hatch [/B][/QUOTE]

I had the exact same thing happen to me only it went one step further. When the porcelain blew out of the center it was jet hot and sailed across the bilge and ended up underneath my trim pump. Then by being so hot, it melted the plastic reservoir and the trim fluid ran out, plus caught on fire. I grabbed the extinguisher and quickly put it out. What a mess. Even with the new plug and engine running good again, I was not able to trim up until I got a new reservoir for the pump. Luckily the pump itself was not damaged. This was all during the first stop of a poker run. Bad day!!
