The 496 Project

In my opinion the most affordable Big Cube BBC is the 496" which allows the use of a stock block. Piston companies are also starting to stock pistons for this combination. We have no idea where this project will end up - much will depend on where we can find a deal on parts. Here's the current state of the engine:

  • OEM 2 Bolt 454" Block - '70s vintage
  • The block has been bored and decked

Here's the plan:

  • Make if affordable
  • Build it to run on pump gas
  • At least 575hp

About the only part we have so far is this 30 year old piece of Detroit cast iron.
