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.

  • @JoErNanO yep. Same guy. Slightly different question. Apr 11 '20 at 2:01

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"

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. Jul 1 '16 at 17:00
