    Default 1000 HP 455 Super Duty 7.4L LT1 Trans Am without race gas

    [quotebIt gains its name from the 455 cubic inch engine, a whopper that equals up to 7.4 liters. It produces 1,000 horsepower from this ground twisting lump while pushing 14 pounds of boost from the 2.3L Magnussen supercharger, which is .5 PSI less than the Demon. It also produces 1,046 lb. ft. of torque, representing a 160 horsepower and 276 lb. ft. of torque increase over the SRT on 100 octane race gas. It was built with the help of a NASCAR engine supplier in the of Virginia, so it's got plenty of pedigree.[/quote]

    Only 50 will be built.

    I cant see this happening, a one off engine for a production run of 50, and introduced as a Pontiac, which is no longer being made. Seems like a lot of extra work to do this, when they could just modify an existing engine and plop it in a Camaro.
