Big Wind: This 427 LSX Build Is Topped With A 10-71 Blower! Full Build, Dyno Testing, and Bizarre Application Here

We’re not sure how quickly Jeff Huneycutt ran out of his house when the guys at Prestige Motorsports in Concord, North Carolina told him about this engine build, but we’re guessing there were long black stripes leaving his driveway. Why? In this latest installment from the awesome Horsepower Monster channel, we see a killer 427ci LSX build. What makes this good? As always, the comprehensive coverage of the work is amazing but the fact that this sucker has a 10-71 blower on top of it and is destined to land in a VW Thing are other reasons of note!

If you’ll remember, we showed you an airboat engine build that Jeff featured a while back as well. That engine was very, very similar to this one except it had a smaller supercharger on it. Designed to run relatively low RPM and make huge torque, it was not about making raw power like this one is with the big huffer.

It is pretty amazing that the Roots blower is still going as strong as it is in terms of popularity among modern hot rodders. From the look to the instant torque and power, the “belt driven intake manifold” is still a viable solution for builders and rodders looking for tire shredding power.

This whole thing is nasty!

    Love it! Obviously, packaging is a problem with a set up like this for any street driven vehicle, but nothing makes a “bigger” statement than a monster sized roots blower. If the guys put an injector hat air cleaner on it, it will be perfect for an over-the-top project like this.
