The story behind Chris' 460-inch Poncho is an interesting one. Back in 2003, Hot Rod magazine held a "Win Your Dream Engine" contest. The idea was to spec out your perfect engine, and if you won, Hot Rod would have it built. Well, Chris entered, won, and this is the final product. The healthy 10.3:1 street engine puts out 562 hp at 6,000 rpm, and has an approximate replacement value of around $9,500. Even counting the cost of the "found" bullet, Chris has managed to keep spending in check with a total build of less than $25K.
