Re: sbc 400 engine vibration
Well, I do have the six inch scat rods sitting on the shelf. I was buying parts slowly so I could rebuild it right next summer. I'm thinking that the rebuild time is now. Any suggestions from you guys which pistons to get. I have the 400sbc two bolt main. Scat 9000 stroker lightweight crank for the 400sbc with a 3.75" stroke and 5.7" rod length. . Scat forged I-beam connecting rods 6" . A new Comp cams part # cs xe262H-10 camshaft and lifter kit. How do I figure out which pistons to get. Being that the crank is for a 5.7" rod and I am going to use 6"rods. I got crank and rods on craigslist for $250 all sealed and brand new in boxes. Any idea would be greatly appreciated. Also, what would the combo produce as far as cubic inches and compression ? Any concerns with this build? As for heads, I am using some stock 76cc heads, but plan on upgrading to some aftermarket heads in the future. Can't afford it now, but I understand how a good set of heads would make a huge difference. The pistons would have to be able to clear these stock heads for now. My car will be mostly street driven, weekend strip occassionally. I like to have the power when I want it, but it needs to be streetable. Thanks for any info.
