good deal , but think im going to get a baffled pan from moroso to try to get everything i can ... i recall blake or randy malik having a thread on Hp just in the oil pan on dyno with correct baffling ect

maybe it doesnt matter and i will use a pan like that ....it is a good deal for sure

http://www.460ford.com/forum/showthread.php?t=119802 This thread? Never saw a number quoted. I would not get too excited about it on a 6-6,500Rpm engine.

shop im having assemble the shortblock called

i need new pistons ...cylinders are fine but pistons are worn by wrist pin area bad enuff he wants me to come take a look
this engine was together years back , all was getting done was being re-ringed and balanced

so my options now are order another set of KB hypers .....or get a set of forged pistons and why its there punch it .040-.060 over

Kb has hypers #401 that would give me in the 13.1 compression range but dont think i need it


my other option is to look into a stock stroke forged setup ...always somthing cars coming along great will post some pics up but a little step back now

Seems like you could find some forged TRW's and cut new valve reliefs if you want to keep the budget down?

Seems like I remember Paul Kane selling some forged stock stroke pistons for about $550 a set. I believe that they were similar in specs to the TRW L2443NF but a better quality. I can't find the thread now, maybe you could message him.

Ordered some icon flat tops forged....should be around 12.1 with my heads

So I have to decide now having forged pistons and h beams

Keep comp 294b cam or get a roller cam...either way I feel better knowing about having forged pistons
