Dome pistons for 460?

Post  cheatham on December 20th 2014, 1:21 pm

Just wondering if there were some off the shelf dome pistons for a 460, other then the speed pro/trw dome?
Been kinda out of the loop. Thanks

Arias makes them too.

And it's no big deal to get them from Diamond, JE, CP , Etc.

Thanks Dave, and Carl both.
What im looking at doing is, Tfs steets, cnc'd was thinking 460
But got a good deal on a 4.3 521for racing crank. Anyway wanting 600-650 hp then nitrous 200-300 hp
So not so sure on the 4.3 crank.. I have a 429 in the cougar now with
H beams victor 4150, .258-262 @50 640/640 solid cam, old wisco domes
And...procomps. Zex -100-300 hp plate. Spraying 200 now.
Wanting to reuse rods. And other stuff if i can. But the crank has me
Wondering which way to go. stock 3.85 crank is strong not sure on the
4.3

Dont mind useing it over. Just thought stroke would help.

I'd say your're pushing your luck with any sort of cast crank and that kind of power, but 2.500 rod journals do add some strength over the 2.200 stuff.

I wouldn't be too worried about the 3.850 crank (there are no forged 3.850 cranks available), but in a stroker forged would be my preference.
