Eagle makes very poor products, step up to at least a SCAT.

If you think the block has already been bored, take it to a good machine shop and have the cylinders mic'd for bore diameter and roundness before you buy any parts. Even though it "may" have been bored .030 over, it may require boring even larger to clean the cylinders up. After the block has been checked, then make your decision on the kit.

Real evidence of this, or just others internet opinions?? Have you, yourself, used any Eagle kits, and what was the problem(s)?

I have been running an Eagle stroker kit for 3+ years without problems.

We build a lot of engines and we stopped using the Eagle stuff years ago as it took 5 cranks to get one that would pass my inspection. We balance for alot of other shops in the area and I do mic the cranks when they come in and if they were mine I would send most of them back because of journal taper and run out.

Scat seems to be a good crank and we have used a lot of them but we have gone to the Callies compstar cranks and rods and have been very pleased with their product so far.

Here is a link to look over.

Learned the hard way about eagle.You are far better off with scat or even a stock 400 crank turned down and stock rods.For a 450 horse build stock 400 rods , turned stock crank and 350 compression ht. pistons will do well.
