With the participation of SEMA-member performance parts manufacturers and legendary engine builder Ed Pink, the SEMA Scholarship Committee will have a complete dyno-tested 302 Ford engine, based on a Dart block and “Pro 1” cylinder heads, up for auction on eBay concurrent with the upcoming SEMA Show. Proceeds will benefit the SEMA Scholarship Fund. Simultaneously, a customized Dodge Charger and Dodge Avenger will also be auctioned to benefit the SMSF.
The SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund includes awards for vocational schools, 2-year, 4-year and postgraduate work, with a percentage designated for the families of employees of SEMA member companies. There is also a Loan Forgiveness Program to help repay student loans for employees of SEMA member firms.
The engine, which will employ a Scat stroker crank and have a displacement of 351 cubic inches, is targeted to produce well in excess of 400 horsepower, yet will have excellent streetability and is designed for long-term durability. It is applicable to many niche markets, including street rods, Cobra kit cars, custom classic trucks, Mustang restomods and other street performance applications.
