Default Big Dawg 472 Small Block Crate Engine

I've been scoping out the new Scott Shafiroff Big Dawg 472 Small Block Crate Engine.....
They have three versions....615 HP street cruiser 635 HP street/strip and the 675 HP limited street.
I drive car on an occassional basis....and I do have access to 100 octane racing gas from the pump.
That 675 HP version is looking mighty sweet.....
Which engine would you choose from the three available engines?
Would the limited street be that much of a problem if used only on the strip and cruise nights at Wendy's? :reddevil

It is a 472, 572 is big block territory.

If money is no object, go for the big boy. You can always learn to drive it on the street.

Hey Desertdawg :seeya
How's it going out in Gila Bend?
That big boy looking mighty bad.....I wants me one of them.
Wonder what the performance is like?...Does she have to be torn down after a hard night at the track or a cruise down the blvd.
It'd cost me about $14,000.00 big ones to get the big boy built and shipped over here.....Close to 700 hp is solid axle time. :steering:
You're right....I'd have to learn how to drive it on the street.....I bet she has nasty street manners......

Damn 14 grand...... :eek:


You better learn to love that thing for that much scratch. Plus the cost of adding a solid axel soon afterward's. Way out of my league.
