Block question?

Post  514F-1 on September 30th 2013, 7:26 pm

Can an internally balanced stroker crank be used in a D9TE block? And if so, how much weaker is the D9TE than the other blocks? Can the D9TE handle 750 horsepower? Thanks

Yes you can run the internally balance crank I am running a d9 block with a 4.5 stroke 6.7 rods and 4.42 bore it makes a 552 and makes around 750hp

Most (if not all) of the offshore stroker crankshafts will fit the D9TE cylinder block. However, if the crankshaft in question is an offset stroked internal balance OEM 460 crankshaft then it is not a drop in deal--the crankcase of the D9TE block will require further clearancing for the larger counterweights of the internal balance 2Y/4U series OEM Ford crankshaft. Further, with the offset stroked internal balance OEM crankshafts the oil slinger behind main #5 will need to be turned down to a diameter like that of the external balance 3Y series crankshafts.

The typical 750 hp is a walk in the park for your typical D9TE cylinder block.

Thanks, I was pretty sure the aftermarket stroker cranks would fit, but I wasnt positive. Thanks for the info.
