Started the build on the car suspension with withstand 2000+ hp and drive it on the street with a Turbo 400 Transmission. Need help, if you were building this type of car, what cubic inch motor and turbo would you use. Keep in mind, the car has to be street friend. A Larry Larson and Tom Bailey type car but looking to run in the 7s and drive on the highway 500 miles back to Mississippi. Thanks in advance for all responses and advice.

You left out the most important information of all.

Your BUDGET !!!

You mention Larson and Bailey type car so I figure you must have some cash.

You could do 7's with a small block or just to be absolutely sure...:-D

Lol. Yes I did but it is only for their street ability. They are able to drive their cars from city to city on the highway, that's what I am looking for.

I would like to know more information about you motor if your willing to sharing.
There's all the details you could possibly want in his build thread, except maybe cam specs. Be prepared, what you are asking for is a minimum $40,000-$50,000 investment in the engine and supporting fuel system and turbos. You could make a reliable 2000 with used BBC junk and a pair of $1000 each upgraded S400 Borg's for half of what a Ford build from scratch will cost.

I hate cross breeding myself to the point I chose to build a Malibu over a Buick Regal because I had full intentions of an LS build. But your budget needs to be factored into a 2000 hp build.

Thanks for the criticism on my budget. I do need to reevaluate my budget to this type of build. I am willing to lower my expectation for the car because I don't have an open check book. I will not cross bred. I will start looking for a used BBF that I can buy an make changes a few changes to so I can achieve my goal. If you or anyone else know of a motor for sale, I am open.
