It's really easy to get to 600hp with a stock stroke deal, but a 4.3" deal would make it a bruiser

not sure how easy 600hp is to get need some good heads and more compression than what I want and 600hp 460 is stout

You can get that 600hp with the heads you have, back cut the valves with some clean up and still be pump gas ready with the stock stroke combo just give a little more rpm and your golden all this with a solid flat tappet cam. The 950 will feed it, with the compression you want it should be easy.

Best street cruise stroke.

I think a factory 460 cast crank offset ground to 4.15", with a Scat 7.1" rod and a 1.125" compression height piston makes a sweet balance between rod/stroke ratio, torque production, internal engine friction, and rev capability. Also, less cubic inches to feed in cruise conditions than the bigger cubic inch engines.

Yep,thats a great combo.Like Cool40 said,keep it 4.3 or below for street.

Hey Dale.

Remember my '57? Don't know about "the best" but It had a 521 and dynoed at 650ish Hp.
Combo was a Scat 9000 4.3 crank, Scat 6.8 rods, Diamond "stocking" dish piston and A429 CJ heads, Victor manifold with a Holley 1000HP.
Don't recall the cam specs but it was a Comp roller. C.R was 10.3-1 and ran on pump gas.
One note, I tried a Holley 1050 and picked up 41 hp.

Is this for your '52? I thought you were running a stroker?

I have ran a lot of the 600hp cars but when I use the hp calculator they are down a lot... I believe that a lot of dyno give high numbers... the real hp dyno is the track and a mph calculator...

Stop watching and start doing.
I read some of your prior threads, this is not a put down.
you want to learn? Start with a stock engine installed plus bolt on parts such as ignition system, performance/race oil pan for the car and headers(CJ''s) .
those parts can transfer to any stroker size and MOST heads. Hands on doing something is better than dreaming and talking.
YES those bolt on parts might not add to the engine output , they're are a start to a better bad ass build

I do have a 472 had it 17 year's it's in my 1952 ford F1 truck does have a few performance upgrades... A429 heads,victor, 950hp, solid flat cam, 4000 stall 3.89.... Not the fastest truck around but fast enough to win quickest street rod 3 year's at Drag Week has run a best of 11.33 N/A and 10.54 with 125 hit... Also have made some long hauls with it longest being 1500 miles each way... I did all of my own work to the truck building my own engine, trans, diff, sub frame, paint and interior... just thinking of stepping up to a stroker
