Most of the forged cranks are the same, in the 85 pound range.  Cast cranks are about 75.

Pictures?

Here's a picture of some of the Lunati cranks I have in stock.


This is a 572 I built with a Lunati crank.

Thanks Carl. I was talking with them last week and confirmed they are a off shore (like most everybody's) product. They did weigh one for me and confirmed they are 83lbs and not the advertised 73lbs. It looks like better finished product compared to another forging I have right now

Yes, offshore (like everyone else) but really nice cranks. They told me that they went to great lengths to set up their own deal. Definitely not just a re-boxed crank that's the same thing somebody else is selling. I've had my hands on all the major brands, and these are definitely different. I really like the bull-nose counterweights.

No. There are several factories producing crankshafts and rods for the aftermarket as well as OEM's. The scale of manufacturing in China is almost too big to comprehend. There's a trade show in Vegas at the same time as SEMA called AAPEX which is more centered around manufacturing and big retail, and they put all the Asian manufacturers on the lower level which is about twenty football fields worth of booths all representing different off-shore factories. It was really mind blowing the first time I went down there. Thousands of booths offering to make mufflers, radiators, shocks, springs, manifolds, cranks, rods, etc. etc. etc....if you order them by the freight container load.

I would assume one factory produce a better product than the other? to me scat and now this lunati crank would be better than say the eagle stuff and the rpm stuff.some of the eagle and rpm stuff look down right ugly out of the box.

China can make very high quality stuff. Has some of the most up-to-date casting and forging houses anywhere. From what I know of them what you get depends on what you ask for and pay for. The other issues is they are not always honest (imagine that). Those I know of that used China for outsourcing all ended up putting one of there QC guys over there to make sure things were done correctly. Not too sure anyone buying a low volume item like an aftermarket 460 crankshaft would be able to justify having a guy supervising over there.

Ultimately comes down to the name on the box and how much their reputation matter to them.
