    New wild engine build

     



    I saw this the other day and figured I'd share it with you guys and see if you guys have seen any others like this before. Before I say what it is, who can guess what it is? Jerry and Pat can probably come really close.

    Pat nice detail on the stuff in the backround! I figuired some of you guys might think this is cool and interesting too. If I get a video of it running I'll be sure to post it here. It hasn't been fired yet as far as I know. Here is what it is:

    Blown Smoke is a 511 cubic inch Brad Anderson Hemi block with custom built heads by Curtis Halvorson (Extreme Engine Development out of Calgary, AB). It has a Bryant crank with BME rods and pistons. Bosch Motorsports 500% over LBZ injectors along with standalone tuning and fuel. The blower is a PSI 206 D. It is driven by a B&J 3 speed transmission with U.S quick drive converter system and a Precision converter. Brad Hadman chromoly 6.0 certified tub chassis and carbon fibre body…also entails blood sweat and tears by Brian, Jamie and Curtis.

    So basically a Hemi with a Duramax diesel fuel injection and control system.

    Pat, your guess would be closest I figured since you play with this stuff all the time. I'd love to build something like this but holly cow the cost. I hope it runs well but I think it will be limited by RPM's as no one has really cracked the tuning software to get common rail diesels to turn faster than 6k. I also wonder if the blower will be enough air? It still is pretty dang sweet IMO.

    oh it will get air . i think the PSI screw blowers are ugly were 1471 or 1671 are better looking its allbout power . as for parts .its very hard to tell who made the parts many times. with what base engine they used for bore spacing bearing size .i knew it was a hemi head as some did use the bore spacing of a 426and bbc are very close and many Big blower builds with the bbc engines will sometimes use the mopar rod bore size and wrist pin . custom cranks and pistons are the norm. any one with a big cnc machine and program can make just about any thing. when i was at the PRI show they had some cnc machines there it was one making a billet diesel head.i have been at Dart were they had billet blocks laying around like they were just 350s.a cast block in alumiun is around 6000. some of the billet blocks are past 8000

    Yes sir. The billet stuff seems the way the big guys are going. I don't know if you guys have seen the diesel funny car John Robinson owns and Power Service sponsors, but his new engine has a billet aluminum block from Scheid diesel service. He did away with his funny car body and went with a half coupe alter body now. I saw on Power Service's site that they will be switching out from the funny car body and alter body from time to time. A lot of the mod diesel pullers are going with these aluminum blocks too. I know the billet steel blocks LSM was making were $12,000-$15,000 depending on options. The aluminum ones are $15,000 on Scheid's site.

    Well, it's alive!!!!! It sounds pretty sweet. Looks like it needs more air though. On FB he said they have no dyno numbers as the dyno won't handle it. This truck is supposed to be in Texas this week for the NHRDA world finals. I wish I could go watch it.
