Check out this site if you haven't already... I haven't registered, but there are some really knowlegeable guys on there. I know 408 is pretty common, but I think Mark McKeown is doing a 427 version.

There is also a 426 kit out there. Most of those above 408 from what I have read is for racing only, will not with stand daily use at all.

This would be strictly a race engine. We were bench racing the other day and this questione came up. My one book at the shop I think showed a 550 stroker have to check it tomorrow.

Roy getting old mind goingUndecided Got my book from the shop. It is a 434ci stroker kit from StrokerKits.com
They are showing as follows:
Bore: 4.060
Stroke: 4.200
Crank: Nodular Irom 400M
Rod: Scat H-beam
Rod length: 6.250
Rod ratio: 1.48:1

I am going to do some more looking. Really don't like the .060 over bore.

I have a 60 over 4 bolt main block, but was afraid to use it.

Yeah, .060 is a stretch for the average 351C block. Of course, you could sonic check to see what you have left.

On the other hand if you really want the benefit of large cubes, you could just get the Cleveland's big brother, put on some aluminum parts (heads, intake and water pump) and have the desired 450 something cubic inches the easy way at about the same weight (600 pounds fully dressed)Smile.

Again, not meant to be a Cleveland vs 460 post...BUT I am just saying.

Do the RIGHT thing.

I still like the sound of of a big block owner whining when he has it handed to him by a piddly small block. But there is a lot of truth in the old saying "There is no replacement for displacement" so build what ever you want and enjoy it to the fullest.
