You’ve got to love old school grunt.
Today we have a naturally aspirated small block Chevy built by Keith Dorton at Automotive Specialists. It’s been punched out to 400 cubic inches, and naturally aspirated with a carburetor still manages to make over 550 horsepower on pump gas. Maybe best of all, this engine is built to be able to handle those power levels for years with no stress on the components.
There’s no secrecy or trickery here. All the components used are readily available from Summit or all the other places you normally source your performance parts. Granted, it’s all nice stuff, but if money is tight you can swap in less expensive components and still get similar results.
So please check out the video and let us know what you think!
