Meh. 3/8 stud is fine. Use ARP rocker studs. You are staying under 7k, right?



( dont use those crappy old rockers. Get you a set of new Harland Sharps )

NO on those assault heads. Find some heads that are complete. You can find a better deal.

If you spend $7k on this motor, I will laugh at you. You can do it for way less.
You do know you can buy a big block crate motor for less, right?

This is where you guys can hopefully help me out. The best deal ive seen on an all forged assembly with h beam rods and bearings and rings included is around 1300. And those heads seem to be the best deal ive found. The assault heafs would be around 1k completed. the other heads are near 1k but still need rockers.Im all ears to any links to better deals. God knows i need it.

Hey, when you're spending someone else's money why stop there?

The assault heads can do very well for the price.

Post a link so we can check it out.

Thats not a bad price for an all-forged complete assembly, depending on the brand of parts in the kit.
Probably Scat or Eagle i'm guessing.

Seems like you must be buying some really fancy parts for them. If you wanted to you could complete them for around $650 for everything with good parts.

Its not a kit more me piecing a kit together. I think im looking at the right stuff. This is just me clicking around guessing the exacts of what i need. The darn machinist says i should run 6'' rods. Im not sure if that means i am building a 383 stroker (i dont think i want to do this) or if it makes it a 355 or what...so anyways... theres the main parts. So anyways i through the 383 crank in there...
