572 - 67 SS Fitment?

Hi,

1. I want a crap ton of horsepower and would love to have a 572 installed. My concern is will it fit. I have a 67 RS/SS 350 car. Will this big monster fit and if so, what needs to be done to accommodate it? It is not the short deck version. This is the 10.2 inch tall deck I believe vs. the 9.8 inch version. Here is the link to it: https://blueprintengines.com/collect...cts/gm-572-ps1

2. I also would like a 6 speed or greater transmission. Any recommendations on one that can handle 700 hp?

Thanks! D

Make sure you have a good plan for heat management and cooling. That engine will produce a lot of heat.....

Re: 572 - 67 SS Fitment?

I would recommend going with the 502 crate engine as it is identical to a 396 to the casual observer.

The 572 uses the tall deck block which is ok but is wider and may be tougher to get headers to fit. I like surprising people rather than advertising that you have a humongous engine.

There is always someone faster; label the 502 with 396 emblems ;if people think you have a 396 there is never any shame in losing.

Not familiar with BluePrint's version; compared to General Motors Performance Parts. The GMPP motor has a truck oil pan that will not fit in any car body.

Scott Shafiroff sells a standard deck height 582 that will not cause any fitment issues.

https://www.shafiroff.com/chevy-pump...82-bigdawg.php

If you wanted to go with a 572 it would save boring the block 0.100" to punch it out to 4.600" to gain the ten added cubes. If you were willing to run race gas you could nearly double the power level.

The only thing wrong with a tall deck is it pushed the heads up and out an additional 0.400". This aggravates header fitment issues, and room under the hood. If you are going to go with a tall deck I would jump up to a 632.

https://www.shafiroff.com/chevy-pump...32-bigdawg.php

If you want raw tire shreding, axle breaking power then this is the king of the mountain, and it cranks out these numbers on pump gas.

Re: 572 - 67 SS Fitment?

Beth: Thanks for the reply, but the 502 just won't get me the 700 hp I want. I want tire destroying power!

Big Dave: I was leaning towards the Shafiroff motor, but that 582 is at least 5 grand more than the 572. I will contact them and find out about the oil pan. And I am hoping that the shop I am using can make modifications to accommodate the 572. Keep you posted on Blueprint Engine's response! Thanks D

Re: 572 - 67 SS Fitment?

Once the tires are spinning and there is nothing but smoke does it really matter ? My point being 502 572 632 what ever . I really doubt you will ever be able to use all the power because you will never get traction and it you do it will twist that little camaro in half. Unless you do a full new frame with a big narrowed rear end and wellie bars. Just my option. I backed down to a GMPP 383 engine don't have it in yet but I believe a 450 horse street car is more then enough . What ever you decide good luck

You definitely make a great point! I have a 440 hp 383 and 700R4 now and it has great low end power and lights up the tires. After 2nd gear, it's weak as a wet noodle to me. My biggest gripe is power on the highway. I want to be able to punch it at 55 and make some noise. I have grown tired of VW's, Impalas and Ford trucks being as quick as I am. I want some serious power. I want to compete with newer muscle cars as well. Right now, a Mustang GT or 3 series BMW blows my doors off and it's disheartening in a classic muscle car.

The cheapest way to 600 hp is a 540 which is a stroked 502.

Buy the GM 502 block ($2000) and then get a stroker kit ($2000). The AFR heads will be $2500 and then add $3000 for all the small stuff like headers, intake, carb, oil pan, etc.

To me the 572 just isn't worth the extra cost. A 540 can be built for a reasonable cost.

That Blueprint Engine.com 572 is only 10 grand. That's the same price as a 502 that's stroked and I get an extra 140 hp. And it's a crate motor with a warranty. See the link below. Thanks!
