Are you one of those guys who feels thereís just no substitute for cubic inches? Well, Bill Price thought you might like to know heís designing an engine for you, itís called the Bad Dog 215, as in 215 cubic inches. The sixty-degree air-and-oil-cooled 4-valve DOHC semi-unit 3500cc engine has a 6 inch bore and 4 inch stroke, connecting rods run side by side on a single throw crank. Main and rod bearings are from a 426 Hemi.

The engine will be unit construction incorporating a 6 speed transmission. It will not fit into any current standard frame and Bill plans to build one to handle the engineís size and power. The engine will use a combination of CNC machined parts and off the shelf pieces. Heís just getting to the prototype building stage.

* * The complete power unit, including motor, six speed transmission, primary drive, fuel injection, ignition, engine management system with software, sensors, charging system, external oil pump and starter has an anticipated price of $40,000. Final MSRP has not yet been set. We anticipate having a firm price by mid 2009.
