A Do-it Yourself Rock Buggy

By Jeep Experts


I used to be in Troy’s store immediately when the brand new energy plant for the rock buggy arrived.  Having by no means seen a Scat V4 excessive efficiency engine, I snapped a number of pictures of it.  These pics and hopefully extra (as I can snap them) might be a easy digest of a rock buggy construct up.  It gained’t be a easy methods to like a lot of the different data on this website….only a assortment of feedback and pictures because the undertaking progresses.

Monday, May 1, 2005 – the Scat V4 energy plant arrives on the store.  Jessie and Chris drove to Reno over the weekend to choose up the engine from the vendor. 

Jessie and Chris look over the V4 engine.  No Jessie, you may’t put it in your pickup truck!

Dry sump oil pan and pump, 100 PSI mechanical gasoline pump for the injectors, electrical water pump, energy steering, and an alternator.  Depending on what all is added or faraway from the engine, the engine is anticipated to tip the scales between 180 and 225 kilos.

No rock buggy engine is full with out its personal supercharger.  On alcohol, the engine is designed to provide about 580 HP.  It is anticipated, as soon as arrange for the buggy, to offer about 480 HP with 450 pound toes of torque with gasoline.  Once on the dyno, these numbers might be firmed up.  Expected enhance from the supercharger might be within the neighborhood of 14 kilos.

The engine is constructed from a Chevy block.  The center two banks of cylinders are reduce out of the block and the entrance and rear sections are then welded again collectively to provide the V4 engine.  You must admit that having that little pet sticking by means of a gap within the hood of your TJ would look fairly depraved.
