Chevy 4.3 crank.

I`m curious to find out whats the safe max power limit on a non balance shaft chevy 4.3 V6 crankshaft. Since these cranks have split rod journals the amount of metal between the two is on the thin side. Can anything be done to make it stronger? Any word on this is appreciated.

You need to check out the Syclone/Typhoon forums. Those guys will know if anybody does what the limts of the 4.3 are.
