Those parts are all fine & good, but I think you could get the package for less money someplace else.

For instance: http://www.adperformance.com/index.p...roducts_id=745
And that kit uses a higher-quality crank and you can upgrade to H-beams.

557 kit

Thanks RyanJ,i have found that a 577 build can be done for almost for the same amount as a good 466.There are lots of dif kits to chose from and i will look at them close as well talk by phone untill i get the wright one.Good parts cost but make dependable power. :!:

You have to have a aftermarket block to go 577. 557 is as big as you can go w/stock block,and it should be sonic tested.Rick
