Look around you, look at all the unhappy people with their tiny engines. Cadillac CT6s and Subaru BRZs with their pathetic little 2.0-liter four bangers. McLarens running around with puny 3.8 liters, an insult to the V8 configuration. No, my friend, what you need is DISPLACEMENT. Only then will you achieve…
Crate engines are like Legos for adults who love stuffing a lot of power into cars that likely weren’t meant to have it. But we often just get to see (and hear) the finished product—looking at you, LS1-swapped Miatas of the world—instead of the building block itself. But the building blocks are cool!
There’s something perversely wonderful about this.
Because not everything in the world is terrible, some carmakers are willing to sell you an engine all by its mighty self. Jalopnik readers know the best you can buy.
Yep, it's a ten-banger in a box. The Viper may be dead for the time being, but Chrysler will still build you a V10 by hand, intended for use in drag racing. The 8.4-liter monster makes 800 hp and 695 lb-ft. No pricing info has yet been released.
