As the old saying goes, “There’s no replacement for displacement.” And drag racing engine builders know that to be a indisputable fact. But over the years, they, along with their customers, have continued to push the bleeding edge of performance by not replacing displacement, but rather supplementing it with power adders in the form of superchargers, nitrous oxide, and more recently, turbochargers. And this practice is none more evident than in the Pro Modified and Outlaw doorslammer realm.

In order to learn more about the history and evolution of the mega-inch powerplants bordering on and even exceeding 1,000 cubic inches that have overrun the sport, we sought out and picked the brains of some of drag racing’s most revered and decorated engine builders:

• Multi-time Pro Street champion Pat Musi
• Race engine builder Sonny Leonard
Mike Janis, who is leading the charge in 5.300″ bore space supercharged engines
• Alan Johnson Performance Engineering’s Rick Wilkinson
Dart Machinery’s Jack McInnis
