LOL I don't know if I should do a full on motor or just rebuild it with decent pistons and bring the compression down. I really don't have the money for a full on motor and the way things are at work it will take a pretty good while to get the funds up. How strong is the stock crank and rods? I'd like to drop CR to about 9 or 9.5 and still run 7 lbs, maybe a lil more, with a pretty decent cam and possibly head work from LE. Will the stock crank and rods handle 500+ from boost? I believe the knock from the past few years is what hammered the rod more than likely.Your killing me smalls! Ok, send me the set-up- I will use one of my cars to "T E S T" the supercharger for ya!
Yep. If I would have started off with this blower we probably wouldn't even be having this conversation. I believe the knock that I was getting for the last several years that I thought was false knock may have been actual knock. Knock on a supercharged motor especially with that much CR is a time bomb, it just hammers the rod bearings. And now with this blower running so much better with very minimal knock I've ran the dog piss out of it the last couple weeks but the damage had already been done and it decided it was done being abused. lolYour choice is should YOU run the stock type configuration for your car or your mild build to show off the supercharger set up.
stroked block basically for 383 you need a 400ci crank, also you need rods which change from 5.7" to 6" length, pistons would need to be a 0.030 over bore. also the pistons need to be matched with your rods lenght scat sells really nice rotating assemblies like this one SCAT Engine Components 1-91255BIE - Scat Engine Rotating Assemblies - Overview - SummitRacing.com.Here's a link to the rotating assembly Flatlander Racing - SCAT SB Chevy Forged Stroker Kit/Rotating Assembly It's part number 1-41643BIE in column C about 2/3 of the way down the page. I'll have to swap out different pistons because I want a lil lower CR than 9.8. I have considered going 383, what all is involved in stroking this block?
