packard builds a 500 top end for a 250R:eek:

Wow! Never seen or even heard of the one. Looks like there is some modding to make that one work.

07-22-2007, 11:58 PM
not too much modding actually...you have to bore the cases, which is common for anything usually above a 310 kit and trenching the cases, which is normally done for any stroking. other than that, a good ignition, a HUGE carb (that ones a 48 i believe), a custom pipe, and long cylinder studs. the cylinder is called a sabertooth, will set you back a few grand when its all said and done, it produces around 100 hp on alcohol and it does chew tranny's up and it does break motor mounts. the one in the vid is a 535cc motor.

Wow, almost seems that it wouldn't be worth it, to generate that much power on a bottom end that was never designed to handle anything close to that. Seems that doing an actual big bore engine swap with a oem engine designed big from the beginning would be a much more reliable way to go fast. As components were made to handle the higher output. In other words, what raffa has done.
