The article notes, "The 632-cubic-inch ZZ632/1000 crate engine was designed for drag racing builds and not meant to be used on the street."

I guess this means that no one will drop one of these into a street rod, ;););)

Not bad numbers for pump gas naturally aspirated. You would need a huge tank for a street rod… another reason you will never see this in one of there production vehicles… driving down overall epa mpg. 😀

sign me up anyhow, my side by side could use a little more pep….

Quite honestly, I wouldn't want one of these engines. What I would love to have is a 495 hp 6.2L LT2 V8 Chevy engine in a Corvette C8! :winkingthumbsup":winkingthumbsup":winkingthumbsup"

SRT......Well, we haven't messed with the Caravan yet, any thoughts guys?......Yea, let's throw some wide tires and a GIANT motor in it, just like every other car we've made in the past decade! It'll be great!

With that said, I'll give them some credit for finding a recipe that buyers want and exploring that as best they can.

I would buy a 700hp minivan. 🤷‍♂️ The formula is classic. Badass looks with a ton of power, nothing else matters lol. I will probably get a TRX in its last year. Me and wife talked about getting rid of the Tesla for a HellCat in its last year too. Enjoy the last of V8 power before everything is boring.
