No Offence Inended Coug, I was just trying to explain why I am more comfortable with a smaller 528" STREET/strip motor heavily fed by the gas, not to argue the big inch stroker which not only has in my opinion too much torque for my application, just following my experience from my heavily nitroused clevelands and the differences of how the bigger strokers did not seem to like as much nitrous... in a cleveland at least.

No No No, I am not saying that Coug... I mentioned "what I am comfortable with and not being an authority on the topic...just a hillbilly looking to build a new car with a little help from his friends, or maybe the people that will listen, or experienced willing to share. Sad

We are similar, my pro-street runs 9.20s in good air at 148mph on motor and the street cant take the power but at the track I could use a shot to put it into the 8s. I cant put my foot to the wood without it going up in smoke even at 70mph.
I wonder how these street racers do it. They must have aluminum small blocks to reduce the nose weight.

If my track was an hour away I'd still trailer it.

Hey Dave De,
What is your take on the buy/build knowing what it is and where I am going with it...as the description says your opinion counts!

I don't understand the purpose of this entire thread.  scratch
The guy asks for "THOUGHTS" and when they don't agrtee with his own, just wishes to argue with almost everybody.

Build it however you want with whatever rod ratio "floats your boat"  if you already have a plan of what you are going to do and simply using this forum to try and get justification for those plans; see ya later and have a good day.  flower

An OEM 429/460 block is NOT even close to sharing the weaknesses of a Cleveland block by any stretch of the imagination so, stop even trying to float a comparison between the two.  Rolling Eyes

I am not arguing I am debating based off if my best judgement, the more information and opinions presented breed a more in depth conversation, which is part of getting to know those who are providing the answers, because I do not take the first response as gospel does not mean I am arguing with the higher powers I am just looking for further detail to make a properly informed decision. I am not using this forum to justify my plans, or offend any of it's members, including you rmcomprandy I replied to you with many questions however I guess uninformed people like me must get on your nerves, oe maybe it is just me for that I am sorry, I am here because I have the Blue Oval blood running through my veins, I watched many posts before signing up looked at the pictures and have lived vicariously through many of the members projects, all while thinking of what my next one will be. As for the cleveland comparison I have wanted to make the change for a long time and that is another reason I am here(only collected parts until now), so I apologize that that is the only comparision that I have ,including the Clevelands weaknesses for the last 30 years. I am not blessed with your engine knowledge, or machining ability but I am willing to contribute and learn...sorry I am arguing again.

I don't mind giving pertenant information but, when the conversation gets around to comparing the bad points of apples against grapefruits ... I won't be in that conversation and I have no understanding why it is even taking place.

engines
fruits
motorcycles
cars
houses
trailers
etc. whatever
ONE has NOTHING to do with most concepts of another.

A 501 costs the same to build as a 557? What about starting with a seasoned block and letting grow as needed? Eliminating the exception block that after sonic testing can actually live with a 4.5 inch bore shouldn't most overbores start at +.030 and end at +.080?

I think you should take your money and go buy a Clue those engines take almost none of the same parts except the block. they use different cranks and way different pistons so if you go smaller and decide to go bigger you have to almost start over from scratch. Now it is your money, if I were you I would forget spending it wisely and just blow the heck out of it. evidently you have a money Tree, so blow it away.....oh you are worried about the block a stock block will be the least expensive thing in the build. do what you want what ever makes your drawers happy.

One thing I don't understand is why you guys always come here and ask questions that you evidently already know the answers too?


have a great life
