X-PENSIVE

Street Machine - - Mill Of The Month -

AS YOU would ex­pect from an en­gine that is made from a solid chunk of bil­let al­loy, not to men­tion the re­search and de­vel­op­ment that both Alan John­son Per­for­mance En­gi­neer­ing and Pro Line have put into it, the 481X is not cheap. Frank reck­ons a used mo­tor like Steve’s will cost between $60,000 and $70,000 here in Aus­tralia. Even though the block doesn’t have wa­ter jack­et­ing for a cool­ing sys­tem, Steve plans to cruise it oc­ca­sion­ally, as the al­co­hol fuel burns cool enough at low rpm for it to not over­heat.
