Re: Sonny Leonard Developing 1005 CID Engine

So does that make my 892 and my kids 932 Sonny's motors small blocks now?

I think Craig is planning on running Top Sportsman with it in his brand new 69 Bickel Camaro.

Craig

Go easy on me. I'm gonna try to keep up in my "small block" 892

Re: Sonny Leonard Developing 1005 CID Engine

So based on previous discussions, this is a 5.3 motor?

I notice the discussion about efficiency...

1005 CI engine, 2,150 HP naturally aspirated...

What are the HP numbers on a NHRA 500 incher? 1,400-1,500?

I' m assuming.

If you go by the 5.08" bore used in his 932 and add a 6.2" stroke, you get 1005 CID.

I'm not sure, though. I wish they would have said what bore and stroke they're going with in the press release. That's about the only thing they didn't cover.

Re: Sonny Leonard Developing 1005 CID Engine

Also looks like he's leveraging the boom in turbo pro mod cars by offering a new style head. With turbocharged cars mentioned more than once in the ad, that's my guess.

Yeah, 1400 or so is in-line with what I've read.

Re: Sonny Leonard Developing 1005 CID Engine

Twice the cubes of a nhra car so twice as quick/fast? 3.20's@420mph is how that works right?

NHRA motor makes about 2.8. If this thing would make that....wow. 2800 hp with just gasoline!

Interesting. Pretty soon, these engines won't be able to fit in the chassis.

How much thinner can they make the cylinder walls on these before the physical size of the block would have to be larger? Thought I had heard 5.3 was right at the limit of how big they could make these current blocks before wall stability becomes a problem.

Re: Sonny Leonard Developing 1005 CID Engine

These 70mm cams are incredible. The size of the cam tunnel is huge!

It's nothing but a block of billet aluminum so they just cut it any way you want it. Wamt a 5.9 BS block no problem make the thing long enough and bore it where there's plenty of meat left between the cylinders cut you up some heads or cast them if your Sonny,he does a good job there, and wala A BIGGUN>............Sorry Frank these things are getting like computers Out of date before you get em home. Your is big enough don't fret.
