It was designed and developed as a purpose built drag race engine by Warren Johnson with Oldsmobile. Back when the GM divisions still had their own engineering.

To those who follow NHRA Pro Stock, Warren Johnson needs no introduction. Winner of six Pro Stock World Championships, "The Professor" was also the first to exceed 180 MPH, 190 MPH, and 200 MPH in an NHRA-legal Pro Stocker. He was named as one of NHRA's Top 50 Best Drivers, and is a member of the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. Sponsored by GM Performance Parts for 20 years, he worked intimately with GM engineers (Oldsmobile engineers at that time, to be precise) to develop the DRCE (Drag Race Competition Engine).

http://hotrodenginetech.com/inside-w...-stock-engine/

DRCE has no lineage to the Mark IV BBC (or any production engine), which was used well into the 500" era. DRCE has been rebadged from Olds, to Pontiac and now Chevy.

And kind getting back to the real topic of this thread....all of the engines used in FS are production based engines.

Good job Steven Bell on your win at the Gatornationals.

Willy is right. It’s Corporate “GM”. That engine was designed to work in all GM pro stock cars. The LS platform is no different. There is no Chevy LS engine. It’s been used in Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC etc. The DRCE still used lots of BBC design to get there. Yes there different but I bet I could lay some race parts for both in front of most people and you couldn’t tell me which is which.

I thiught he was trying to imply it wasn't even GM designed and an afterarket. In my book... GM/OLDS/Pontiac/Pontiac.... all the same. Like a few doors down the hallways at the GM headquarters in Warren, MI make a big difference.

Evidently you don't understand how GM was structured and run through most of the previous century. Especially on the product development side...

I just always just viewed the DRCE as a GM engine, no different than the Chysler HEMI.

I had forgot about the 1981 Oldsmobile buyers suing over their cars coming with the substandard Chevy engines.
