In an effort to design a theoretical engine capable of outputting 3000 horsepower, I was hoping to emulate the 10.2 liter Chevrolet V8.

What are the specifications for this engine? I was hoping for the cylinder bore & stroke, as well as the piston style, valve train, etc.

A Chev 622ci = 10.2l

I found dimensions for a Chev 632 cubic inch =10.3l

Stroke: 4.750"

Rods: 6.635"

Bore: 4.600"

Taken from here: http://www.jegs.com/p/Blueprint-Engines/Blueprint-Pro-Series-Big-Block-Chevy-632ci-815HP-800TQ/1321871/10002/-1

The horsepower output you're talking about would require forced induction. So turbocharged or supercharged.

Here's a twin turbo 3000 hp chev http://www.engineswapdepot.com/?p=3661

  • I've seen a lot of ads for 622ci which is right at 10.2L ... you may want to take a look at them and adjust your answer. I've not seen any at 3000hp, but it would only take a pair of twin turbo's to make it happen. (Haha - I said only a set of twin turbos, lol! As if that wasn't enough already!) Also, Top Fuel Dragster is more like 8,000hp ... so we are well below that threshold. Commented Jul 1, 2016 at 17:00
