STARTING NEW BUILD SOON

Post  badcoupe on November 20th 2012, 7:57 pm

well it appears sooner then later- some of you may know i lost my mother in law and father in a 3 month period Sad well i made a huge mistake when getting car ready after dad passed away and didnt put all the oil in the motor .

unfortunetly it took out 2 rod journals and 2 rods ....so its time for me to rebuild again ...

my goal is to build a 616 cubic inch motor with the current heads and inatke i have which are the C -heads and charlie recommends me sending to /tea which is 3 miles from my house ...

so im gonna do a 4.600 stroke crank and either MGP OR OLIVER BILLETS with a custom flat top Diamond piston with coated skirts and tops ...and recommended compression with the c-heads ?

i dont want cam shaft to be a valve spring eater -and i would like to keep this motor below 7500 rpms -which of the two rod ratios be better 6.7 or 6.8 rod ratio

any ideas would be great and pros and cons of the olivers vs the Mgps ....this engine will take me approx 2 years to do so i have time --thanks and everyone have a safe a happy turkey day ....

Just out of curiosity, why the 4.6" crank?

A billet crank is $3000+ a 4340 steel crank is $1000 and for $2000 its not worth it to me for 16 cubes

I should have been a little more specific. Why the 4.6 vs. 4.5?
