Cool video, but ive gotta say. Dont EVER buy one of these engines. I have his "Twin Turbo Racegas Warrior" (632ci twin 88mm turbos) The engine was riddled with problems from day one, cheap parts used, and oil leaks in various places. Even things as major as the turbos not fitting correctly. For an engine (that when optioned out) cost !!! $69,000!!! It was the worst mistake ive ever made. The service was terrible, the parts are a joke, it cost nearly $10,000 just to fix! Stay far far away.Lets Fly!

632ci twin 88mm turbos
my God, now I understand your Nick Name , so what do you have that in, an off shore boat ???????

if I was going to spend that kind of money for an engine that big and that powerful I would have an 8-71 on it

some guy at the car show had a big block (don't know the size) in a 67, or 68 Chevell SS, with an 8-71 it had 1,400 at the wheels

another guy had a 1,400HP twin turbo Chevy 350 in (of all cars ) a mid 80s Camaro, I wished I asked what brand of block it was,, he said he had a new engine coming, it too was a twin Turbo, pushing 1,600, he said it was another 350,, that's a lot of power for that small block

The engine was in a Drag Car. Unfortunately an 8-71 isnt nearly big enough, as the 632 racegas warrior makes 1300hp turned all the way down, and 3000hp turned up. The most common manufacturer of blocks for this kind of horsepower is Dart. Which is exactly what Nelson uses. The billet manifold sure is beautiful, its a shame that hes such an arse.

In all honesty, you can make as much youtube horsepower as you want, and make a killer looking engine but if your service is crap, itll never sell. Unfortunately this is the case with the Nelson Racing Engines. Ive spent HOURS on the phone with Tom Nelson (the guy in the video) and unfortunately hes very hard to deal with. Which sucks, cause his product could be killer.

Horsepower sure is fun. Ive become fortunate enough to basically own the drag strip where i live. The christmas tree (starting lights) are actually also my christmas tree. Its a fun hobby.
