This is Dave Marsh's animal VP.
It has 355 stroker, ported heads, massive Crane 288 solid cam, and fitted with modified and ported Starr manifold with 90ml throttle body.
Behind the engine is a Tremec TKO 5 speed manual trans running through 3.7 gears and mini spool.
Last time we had this on the dyno, it made 420hp at the tyres.
It is serious fun to drive.
This is one of those engines that the critics say cant be run on a Delco, because the cam is too radical for the MAP sensor.
It idles at 1120 rpm like a Pro Stocker at 65 kpa without even having to filter the MAP signal.
This is mainly due to a special Kalmaker Closed Throttle VE (fuel) map, which ignores the MAP sensor at closed throttle, and allows set fuel in 100 rpm increments.
I love this car and cant understand why the factory never made this spec engine standard issue…….
It is very embarrassing for GEN 3 owners……..
