Separate names with a comma.
Those are super nice.
Yeah & @ 650 grams they're quite a bit lighter than the OEM 198 rods.
I bet they would really zing with a cast crank.
They make 'em for both forged & cast cranks. 2nd item down. I've thought about running the lighter cast crank but I wonder how it would hold up to a 200 HP shot on N2O.
Well, the concensus on V8s on cast cranks is 450 or so HP with a good balance job and a good balancer. Although I've seen people leave on the back bumper with cast cranks. lol I would think with those rods and the light KB pistons it would be light enough with the steel crank. I'm not sure I would want to risk it. You're gonna have a chunk in that motor.
If 450 HP is the threhold then W/300ish N/A HP & a 200 HP shot of giggle gas would be on the threshold or a bit above it.
Hey guys, since I no longer own my Power Wagon #896, I had my username changed to a more "A" Body appropriate moiker. In lieu of my plans for my '65 Valiant, I changed my username to VIOLENT\6
lol Alright VIOLENT one. Carry on with your bad self.
i dont know if im gonna redo another head, tweak my current one, or have the monster (for "small bore") head done. lol we were talking stock 225 rods. i run 14.25 at 6 grand with stock rod bolts lol... over 100 passes at least.
Yeah but I'm planning on running N/A 12.8s @ 6500 & then throwing a 200 shot @ it to see how close I can get to 10s on the juice. I think I'ma gunna need some good rods. 7.005" 198 rods are a must to get close enough to the head deck for quench using off the shelf pistons. Guys seem to be mighty proud of them 198 rods these days.
A local guy runs in the 12 second range with his setup. Lots of $$$$ to go that fast. Car weight in the 2400 pound range, 4.56 gears, etc. Nothing street car about it though....
