We have a couple of combos out that are 4.3" stroke on boost.
One is about 1200 hp on 19#. Ported PC heads and a CJ block with splayed caps on the center 3.
Another was a Tbird door slammer in the high 7's @ 176 mph. It was in an A-460 block n A heads. Again on about 19#'s

I tend to like to keep the stroke shorter on boost. Easier on the mains.

A main girdle is useless unless it and the maid caps are flat to keep them from flexing in the center.

For a half mile I'd half fill it and pay close attention to prep and details as PSIG mentioned.

Ideally a better aftermarket block. They are however MIA right now.
