Not an engine builder, but if you put that engine together without balancing it it will beat the bearings out of it.
Nonsense. OEM engines are balanced within 50 grams, not less than a gram like performance engines.Not an engine builder, but if you put that engine together without balancing it it will beat the bearings out of it.
You should select a piston that is equal to (or lighter than) the OEM pistons. If you are not going to rebore and the bore has (reasonable) wear, I'd opt for the cast pistons over the hypers which prefer a tighter piston-to-bore fit than the OEM cast.If i take internal balanced crank, c9 passenger rods and some hyper pistons, how much you can spin that without balancing?
Is there lot of difference with cast or hyper pistons?
Im just thinking, because i have fresh 429 shortblock and im going to change that to 460 and needed to do that for a cheap.
if i find a freshly built 460 shortblock for reasonable price, i dont need to tare that 429, or just buy crank and pistons and maybe thos cj/truck rods?
