as some in this section may have noticed, i kind of pimp Fast Times Motorworks. i've watched them for many years and dreamed of having a motor built by them, and on New Years Eve day, i got one! initially, i was going to go BBC, but the deal i got on this one, i could not pass up. originally, i was looking to buy a motor they have built and had in a magazine, a 588" BBC on pump gas. i have seen a huge number of shops build these massive motors, but none have made the power these guys have on pump gas, period! it's around 9.5:1 CR, 588 ci, Dart Big M tall deck block, (can use the standard deck height if you ask), that they said made 950hp and 880lbft, on pump gas. the motor is also capable of taking a healthy shot of N2O, but it's already got a 100+hp advantage over the Schaffiroff motor. i would highly recommend talking to these guys before any final decisions. price as of about end of summer last year was $18K. very competitive price. either way, nice power level for a street motor.
btw..........that 598 runs on 94 octane minimum. personally, i've never seen anything between 93 and 100 octane at the pumps. so if you can't use 93, you have to use 100......and that's no longer a pump gas motor in most peoples books. plus it's like $4.xx/gal!!!
