Im new Here, a few 460 block questions
Hi everyone I'm new here and had a few questions. I'v been a 351w stroker guy for the last 10 years, infact thats all I have built, I put a blown Windsor in a 71 datsun which ran 10's and a few years ago put a 408W in a suzuki samurai which ran 9's in the quarter. My goal now is to get into the 8's in the quarter. This is my first Bigblock build ever. I just bought a 1991 mercury Capri for my conversion and im estimating a total weight of 2100 - 2300 with me in it. So my question is how strong are the D1VE blocks. Im going to need somewhere in the 850HP range to get into the 8's so can a stock D1VE handle this kind of power? Do you guys usually use main girdles on bigblocks? Also because the car is fairly light, can i get by with a scat cast steel crank?
thanks in advance
