Post 1000 horses

lets say your building a 434. 650 horse is a resonable amount to expect givin the right components. if you were gonna spray it with 300 to achieve a total of around 1000 horses, who makes a rotating assembly to handle it. lunati has a good rod thats advertised at 700 horse. would that do. who else could i check. im more formiliar with scat and eagle but someone advised me against those. looking for 4.155 stroke. 6.125 rod. thanks

Carrillo and other high end rods dont rate their rods by power. I once talked to a Carrillo rep and he said they build the strongest rods in the business so they dont rate them. Pretty bold statement, but probably true. The main trick to their rods in the bolts. Carrillo CARR bolts are 280,000 psi and the best ARP's are 220,000. Those numbers may not be exact, but hey are close. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

With forced induction or nitrous 1000 HP should not have a problem keeping an engine together. I have a friend with a 1200 HP(Dyno Proven) N/A Big Ford. He runs off the shelf Eagle rods and has not had a failure. Make sure you get the gest rod bolts that your budget can handle however.

I run Eagles with L-19 bolts in mine. 1000 HP blown injected Alcohol. If I had enough money I would have Oliver Rods.

Dont forget. Rods usually fail from hi rpm's, not horsepower. HG

Very true. If I were you BERN I would try to keep things in the 6500 RPM range and just spray the piss out of it. Try to spin 8000, and those rods start getting real heavy. 6500 should be all a 4 inch stroke small block will need to make that power.
