well seems to me taxman that no matter how we go 2 bolt 4bolt block were still at limit with the block or crank we have! seeing that a A460 block is out of the question for me and you at the moment,we are working with-in a hp limit anyway of what we have! so if you have a scat 9000 cast crank that is good for 800-1000hp, the stock block is only good with in those limits anyway! so putting a forged crank in a block that can only take 800-1000hp is over kill to me. unless you are moving up to a eliminator block or A460 block! so to me you might as well build a motor based on what the block and crank can handle! guess I will be building my motor based on all the experience of the people on here and from bbf guys in my city who i'v e seen run with these parts! so any thing over 1000hp with a stock block your playing Russian ruellet with your motor and money! guess I will be ordering my 4.500 scat crank building me a 750-830hp motor no spray, and just go have fun! just me thing out loud! how much did your motor make on the dyno!

wow!! sorry to here about your block but its good that you caught it before it made a mess, I never finished mine, got the 429 running and it was just to wimpy and I could not stand it so I baught a .080 over 460 today complete but dissembled, it has aftermarket rods and forged flat tops, DOVE-C heads with bigger stainless valves came with a mini starter, aluminum water pump and tall MS valve covers, selth intake and a 8580 dizzy, the only thing I don't care for is the flat tappet cam, but it has roller rockers and comp pushrods, so I'm going to freshen it up and change the cam, lifters and valve springs and intake so I think it will run like I'm use to, hope you get yours back together soon, don't wanna miss any point races, I've already missed 2 but we have a long season not to worry . keep your progress posted and hurry up!
