494 inch MAGNESIUM Boss 429 motor was a spare for andrettis Can-Am car. I got the article here somewhere- had it hangin in the garage for a while...think it ran like 10.75 in streetable trim. Mountain motor power at less than smallblock weight...

<<<Here is a photo of the ultimate Boss, the rare Can Am 494, an exotic version of the Boss 429 NASCAR engine. Using standard Hilborn injection only thirteen (13) full aluminium engines were made and five (5) of the ultra rare magnesium engines. A reputed 700HP + was obtainable from this setup.
