Wow! You sure about all those ponies numbers? My buddy drag races 440's and the best he can get is 450 Hp with a fully blue printed 440 with forged crank. And we're talking an investment of over $15,000 in just the engine. And that with him doing the machine work and parts at cost.

I built a very stout 350 HP Cummings and put it in my Fleetwood Limited and have a hard time keeping stock transmissions alive in it. I'm currently throwing money at a fully built Allison for it with billet TQ and all the trimmings.

How about some specs on the build to explain how you're getting 750 HP out of it.


My son's Drag Car with Full Race LS1 can only put out 600 HP at the crank on a dyno running on pump gas.

I would expect with that much HP you're probably a mile per 5 gallons of gas.

Pictures would be great too!

BTY, Stock that 440 only put out 225 HP on it's best day!

This my primary rv that serves as residence. My 1979 Dodge Tioga 25 foot Class C with a four barrel carb Dodge 440 7.2 Liter v8 motor and Allison 4 speed transmission. Only 91,000 mile on her and she runs great.

This one is a complete restoration project I need to get done. 1987 Fleetwood Bounder 34 foot class A. Has a Chevy 454 7.5 liter v 8 and Allison Transmission. Been sitting in storage in Arizona for a few months. I will be working on her when I go down for the winter. This was a gift from my uncle David who replaced it with a new toy hauler. So you could say it is my second Motorhome.

I have never tested the HP on this motor, but I was told by my mechanic and the previous owner the engine came out of 600 HP and was rated for 750 HP. I personally don't care much about the HP. I'm just happy to have a motor that can get the job done. But let's just say, she can burn rubber.

Ahh I don't know. A bigger motor like this loves to gulp the gas to much. It's nice having a motor that can tow almost anything. But you sure pay for it in gas at the pump. I might get 10 mpg at the most, and that's on a good day. It costs a dollar just to fire this thing up!! It can tow my Park Avenue with no trouble on my yearly excursions to Arizona and that's all that matters to me. But you Got to have deep pockets with a gas hungry beast like this!!! LOL


1979 Dodge Tioga Class C 24 foot. 1987 Fleetwood Bounder 34 Foot.
