Sweeet. What are the specs on the new engine?

Well, im looking at a 331 rotating assembly, forged rods, forged probe pistons, and cast crank.

Hoping to have the compression somewhere around 9.5- 10:1 and ill just be reusing the top end i already have.

RIght now its all in the works, so if anyone has any good ideas, or hook ups with parts, feel free to let me know :banana:

Stock block split at 500+ horses, and all those compenents will hold more than that. some see it as a waste of money, others see it as piece of mind.

Me and Stopsign have butt heads on this subject before. I agree with leaving the crank stock...but I wouldn't trust a stock rod past 450 FLY WHEEL HP. They've lived past that but they've also failed before it. If I were doing a BUDGET motor over, I'd slap stock crank , forged rods and pistons and a hp hit of spray. BUT a cheap stroker will make a great street motor as well. Nothing wrong with KNOWING your motor CAN make 500 to the wheels rather than shooting in the dark. To each their own though..
