Engine Rip-off of the Century - How I got Screwed by Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing
In 2005 I bought a crate engine from Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing. It was
a total disaster from start to finish. Within a year the engine had become
a coffee table in the reception area in my office.
I can laugh at this $43,000 screw up because it is several years ago now.
And because I think I may get the last laugh. Watch the video all the way
to the end to see why.
Please send this video to everyone you know so that no one else gets burned
like I did!
UPDATE: 4 Sept 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has UNsubscribed from my videos
and deleted my video from his favorites.
Guess he has no sense of humour...
UPDATE: 5 Oct 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has blocked me from his channel.
Awww, I was having fun.
UPDATE: 15 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has finally noticed my little video and
has launched an aggressive counter attack to discredit me. Read the last
135 comments - it's pretty funny.
UPDATE: 17 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has disabled commenting to his videos to
get rid of the huge number of negative comments.
I've opened an online store where you can get 540Merlin T-shirts and other
great stuff! This is the only source in the world for 540Merlin stuff.
Scott Shafiroff E85 540 First start
First go, spankin' brand new 540 from Scott Shafiroff, New York. This was
the first E85 motor they built - and what a beast! 709 brake HP, and torque
to Boost. Hooked up to a Tremec
TKO600 in my '70 Elkie SS, it will be quite fun. To say the least, he he..
Helping out in the video is former European record holder in Competition
(dragracing) Jörgen "Julle" Lindgren.
454 BBC replaced with SSRE 582 - Dyno Run #1
Out with the old (454) in with the new (582). This is the engine I
promised in the comments that is replacing my old 454 powerplant. As you
can see from the end of the video this tree stump pullin' 582 monster has
784HP @ 6200RPM and 742ftlbs of torque @ 5000RPM. NO BOTTLE....and is
streetable on pump gas at 10.5:1. Aside from the package Shafiroff offers
on this engine, I had Wilson Manifolds provide intermediate porting and
port matching of the intake to the DART PRO1 355cc heads which proves to be
money well spent as it is giving this beast an additional 35HP over
advertised on Shafiroff's website. Go to www.shafiroff.com for more specs
on the 582 Ultra Street BIG DAWG.
