Re: I vs H
I'm not planning on running it down the strip a lot, maybe once every so often but it wont be it's daily life, granted I do have a heavy foot. I've been shopping on jegs and they offer kits from eagle that are rotating assemblies. the one specifically for my application if I want to keep it from being a stroker engine is around 900 dollars, i beam rods, 4340 steel, internally balanced. the other is a 383 kit balanced rotating assembly with h-beam rods and some upgraded parts. I'm not really wanting to make a stroker engine because I've heard they occasionally have failure issues and short life-spans, plus doing that raises my compression up to more in the 11:1 ratio instead of closer to 10. I am planning on adding a blower at some point, so I'm afraid to go too nuts. going to be using Cast iron parts aswell, old 350 block, and a cast iron vortec head. I'm really only looking for around 650 HP out of it with the blower, don't plan on N02 either. However the closer I get to 500 hp w/o the blower the less likely I will be to put one on.
