The launch of this new engine comes in response to the recent ban by 400 Thunder on Noonan Ultimate Race Engineering’s 4.9 Push Rod Style engine, with any Australian customers affected by that ban to come across onto this new program.

“The new 4.9 overhead cam engine has a 4.9 bore space and two valve overhead cam,” explained Noonan Ultimate Race Engineering Chief Executive Officer, Jamie Noonan.

“Any Australian customers impacted by the recent decision regarding our new 4.9 push rod hemi will come across to this new engine program, and we anticipate that the 4.9 overhead cam engine will match the performance of the 4.9 push rod Hemi engine.

“We certainly expect some great results at the Winternationals, and look forward to showing what this new engine can do.”
