One thing that separates the Inglese system from other individual runner setups is the common plenum, which dramatically improves the driveability and torque. For those who want an even cooler looking Inglese setup, we saw one manifold in the company’s SEMA booth that had a direct port nitrous system plumbed into it. We asked SSRE about adding some juice and they said a little hit wouldn’t hurt the engine and custom setups can be built in-house.
Every engine that leaves SSRE is run on dyno and all Real Street engines make within one or two horsepower of the advertised ratings. This setup spun the DTS dyno to a peak of 566.5 hp, right on the 565hp rating as advertised by SSRE with the HHR upgrade option. That’s within one horsepower of the carburetor version that uses an Edelbrock dual-plane intake manifold and Quick Fuel carburetor. Scott Shafiroff credits the near identical results of the packages to getting the most from the cylinder heads and camshaft design.
The Real Street EFI had a peak reading of 586 lb-ft while the carburetor version typically cranks out 585 to 588 lb-ft.
Reliable, simple, and unique are the perfect adjectives to describe the SSRE Real Street EFI crate engine and it all fits in nicely with that familiar term--powerful.
