Ermmm... Seems rather pointless to me?! If all the parts incl. heads are BBC parts just go with a BB? And how are those sizes even possible?

Hi all!
Thanks for moving post in the new prods, Mr Heard!

Block has same size as a SBC, and in some associations, this is how it goes...

Makes a much smaller package, easier to work on, fits much better in small cars...

First one out the door is a 605 cid pump gas unit, with a 500 shot of juice...

Here's the race tunnel ram intake for it, mounted on the CNC machine as of yesterday noon...


more pics soon...

Actually Scott, There is already a red split window Corvette with a twin turbo billet small block in it ( not mine ), running in the 6's... Maybe you heard of the guy... does Rod Saboury sound familiar? LOL...

I had the chance to chat a couple of hours with Rod this year at the EDRS Shootout... Nice fellow...

His car runs good and straight...

I was already working on the 588 when I met him and saw his setup. He runs only 400 cid, and reaches 2400HP so far...

As he says, the fit is so much better with a SBC in the car.

Of course, I made the 588-SB for Outlaw racing basically, and street cars with tight underhood space...

And don't get this wrong, it is not a BBC. We engineered it to fit BBC parts right in. Once you are done, it has the same length as a SBC. It's a totally new block, new heads and intake manifold. We just used the SBC envelope very ''efficiently''.

And with RBRE Small Block heads flowing as much as Big Chiefs and PB 1200's, power making isn't the issue, even with the small tight package...
