Yesterday it was an 800hp, 301ci, naturally aspirated V8 engine and at this time it’s a 500hp, 216ci naturally aspirated 4 banger. I suppose I’m on an NA kick today or like daily I’m on an superior engines kick. There’s a man promoting a absolute boatload of Pontiac SD4 racing engine stuff. The SD4 was a “Pontiac” engine that was offered by way of what was then GM Efficiency Elements and was designed primarily (as we perceive) for racing in midgets and stuff like that. They’ve additionally been utilized in drag racing in light-weight automobiles competing in courses like Competitors Eliminator and others. They’re neat in the truth that they’re constructed like anvils and make large energy for what they’re. Take this little sucker for instance.
With an SB2.2 unfold energy head, a stubby little straight shot consumption/injector bolted to the consumption ports, dry sump oiling, and cylinder head modifications performed by the well-known Head Up! cylinder heads, this sucker is racey and boy it seems about the precise measurement to be shoved right into a suitcase and carried round. There have been a number of variations of the block made to simply accept completely different head bolt patterns and guys have run them with overhead camshaft heads as nicely. The massive names in midget and dash automobile racing have been round these for many years. You may really see the names Gaerte and Rodeck on the aspect of this aluminum block. If you happen to don’t know who they’re, welcome to your first day on Earth.
We’d love to listen to this factor run, screaming by way of a tube header and making all the wonderful noise that the little motor might make. In case you are into the SD4 engine, try this advert as a result of the dude has LOADS of stuff on the market as a pal is liquidating his assortment of components and items. Camshafts, blocks, and extra elements than you possibly can shake a stick at.
