That was the title of the Engine Power show on Power Nation TV this weekend. The entire show was about Jon’s shop and crew. There was some discussion about the expanding business, but the best part was one of Jon’s engine builders putting together a big block 598 with the new SR71 cylinder heads with Engine Power host Pat Topolinksi. But the very best was the dyno runs. Pat had mentioned to Jon’s crew of the dyno runs of a fairly similar build they did, a 632 BB Chevy and they accepted the challenge. The BB Chevy made 1022 hp and 821 lbft. The final pull on the BB Ford made 1108 hp and 933 lbft.

The most interesting thing is the comment Pat Topolinksi said at the end of the show. “Jon Kaase and his talented team rose to the occasion and barely edge out our BB Chevy”. Would you call a difference 86 hp and 112 lbft barely?

Would you expect anything different from a guy who owns that Chevy engine...?

He's pretty much a Ford guy. I'm wondering if he said it tongue in cheek?

I don't know, when he made the comment it was done as a voice over. But when they showed the dyno pulls, you could see the disappointment on his face and hear it in his voice. But then again it may be because they beat an engine he built. And they have build way more Chevys on that show than Fords.

No doubt about that. He has worked with Jason Line (summit racing), so he probably thinks that he had the upper hand. Plus, their followers are pretty much bowtie sheeple.

I think we all have to admit that the new Kaase head is the CATS MEOW! cat

86 hp and 112 ft. lbs.
That's a significant power difference

Indeed it is,......

Even more interesting,... is when you do the Math.

Jon's engine - 1.85 hp per cubic inch
Pat's engine - 1.62 hp per cubic inch


Heck,.......mine makes 1.67hp per cube.
LOL

There is something bad wrong with that BBC. 632's with the Profiler Sniper X CNC heads will make over 1,100 hp.
