0.060 over 350 sbc or 0.040 over 400 splayed cap sbc
ok, im looking at 2 crate engines, but the only problem is, they are both bored out kinda far.
thery are from speedomotive, the first is a 394ci made with a 350 block and a 3.8 stroker crank. it is a factory 4 bolt block bored 60 over(yikes)
the second one (the one im leaning towards) is a 414 with a 400 ci block and the same 3.8 stroker crank. this one is a factory 2 bolt block, with splayed 4 bolt main caps. the only problem here is its bored 40 over.
they both have all forged parts, and long 6" rods, to offset some of that rod ratio that was given up by switching to a stroker crank. the 400 stroker costs $400 more than the 350 stroker, but i dont know if i trust the 60 over 350 block. that has to be close to the water jackets. im thinking the 40 over 400, even tho the cylinders are closer, have more wall material than the 350 block. and i like the idea of the splayed 4 bolt caps and extra inches too.
what do you guys think?
