If you are in the mood to see how horsepower is made today, boy do we have the video for you! This is an awesome step-by-step story showing the construction of a 572ci Chrysler hemi that’s packing a bunch of stroke, and an 8-71 blower on top. You are going to see every step in the build of the engine, the tips and tricks used by the engine building outfit that creates the monstrous elephant engine, and then the dyno testing that shows power levels, tuning, and even the effect of adding air cleaners to this street engine and how it changes the power levels.
What we really like about this video is the fact that no only do we see everything we get some cool explanations about the procedures, parts being used, and the processes in place to make sure that this engine is ready and raring to go when the back of it is attached to the dyno. The shop doing the work here is Prestige Motorsports and as you will see, their shop is absolutely spotless and it does appear that every surface in the place would be just fine to eat off of!
In a world where we see turbocharged combos seemingly growing like weeds out of the ground, it’s pretty fun to see a big 8-71 huffer on top of a big hemi making power the old-school, blunt force trauma way. Topped with a couple of carbs, there are few things cooler on Earth than this. Hell, not only does this thing make near four digit power, it also has an air condition pump bolted to the front of it!
Enjoy the build, enjoy the tech, and enjoy the payoff of the dyno test.
