I used cnc many times they are also much more likely to over speed the bit and trash the work peice and continue to do so until your block and bit are both scrap metal.

The price is right and the motor is the right stuff. Dart tall deck block with pro 1 heads should be in the 500 hp range woth good cam and compression.

Now make that an 18 degree motor and the same 427 is 700 hp and 20k.

If 550 hp is more than you need you should be happy if it lives up to spec. But if you think adding a fogger plate later on is a good plan better think about another rotating assembly for any upgrades. Consider it maxed out and you will be happy.

Would these 427 small blocks be able to live in front of an m21 Muncie 4 speed? Freshly rebuilt?

Hey guys I have a few concerns about this engine was wondering if you guys could help me out. First of all I was concerned about the 4 inch stroke this engine I've heard that it can be problematic it's not the best set up. I have also heard horror stories about 427 small block oil pan fitment something like you can only use every other bolts because of clearance issue is there any issue with this? Also I'm concerned with oil consumption with the 427 small block? Also are there any issues with running one of these darts locks on the street

milodon makes a nice oil pan that utilizes every bolt and clears the crank/rods.
if proper rings/honing procedures are used, oil consumption should be no higher than any other small block of similar configuration (hot street use, drag race, circle track etc.)
not sure which dart block they are using, but there should be no issue using any quality block from dart, world, etc.
