need help with buying an engine

I'm looking at car engines to use in a motorcycle.
The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle.
# 500 bhp (372 kW) @ 5600 rpm (60.4 bhp/liter); 525 lb.-ft. (712 Nm) @ 4200 rpm
# 10-cylinder 90-degree V-type, liquid-cooled, 505 cubic inches (8277 cc)
The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60 miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of nearly 400 mph. (estimated)

I'm planing to build one of those. I thought about using a different engine,
any suggestions ?

With all due respect, we're going to need some confirmation before we believe someone with 100K to spend on a custom bike logged onto this site and asked us for help.

You should probably ask the guys doing the actual project, because they'll tell you which will fit into a motorcycle frame best and so on.

Also, I doubt you have hit the top speed on that twin turbo 'Busa, so why buy an even faster bike?

**I'm assuming that he's telling the truth no matter how unlikely it seems, for now.
