looking into building a 545

Post  mudtrucker on October 4th 2015, 1:23 am

I am in the planning stages of a 545, this will be a all out (as all out as my funds will allow) "race" motor for my mud truck. I am going to use the A429's and victor intake and 2 bolt dove block from my current 466. After using the search function I am leaning towards a 4340 4.5" Lunati crank. I am looking for advice on rods as far as what brand of H beam or what is the opinions on Ohio crankshaft's "extreme duty" I-beams. As far as pistons JE looks like the best for the money but is there any better in the same price range, I want as much compression as I can get.
                                                                                                                             Thanks Bob

What rpm will the rig be geared to turn?

I prefer the Hbeam Scat with a bolt up grade ....if you are looking for an off shore price point.

The Lunati cranks seem to be the best bang for the buck these days.

Probe has a good price point on the pistons.

I turn my current set up around 74-7500 but with the increased CI I'm thinking around 68-7000.
