SCAT Crankshafts is a proud sponsor of Engine Builder Magazine‘s “Engine of the Week” series. Recently, a 482 CID Stack Injected Ford FE engine built by RPM Performance and Machine in Fort Walton, Florida, was featured.


When a customer came to RPM Performance & Machine asking for a badass engine build, RPM delivered this 482 cid Ford FE engine with Borla Induction stack injection and Holley EFI.

According to Brad Simoneau, this is an engine that’s been a long time coming and anyone who stopped by the shop probably saw it. With the stacks it really raised eyebrows.

The engine started with a Bear 427 cid FE side oiler block, which got enlarged to 482 cubic inches because the customer of the build specifically reached out asking for a badass engine. That’s exactly what RPM delivered.

The 482 cid Ford FE features plenty of power thanks to the Borla Induction stack injection and Holley Terminator X EFI. Kyle and Brad called up Scat Crankshafts to get one of their forged 4.250˝ stroke rotating assemblies with Mahle pistons to fit into the new Bear block.

The engine recently got put on the engine dyno for break-in and horsepower numbers and made 610 hp and 609 lb.-ft. of torque!
