NOOOOO SHIIIITTT 8D so stoked. haha alright well i got all my parts together. not so sure if they would fit together well but i think i got it nailed pretty good. ill post the links if you or any one wants to take a quick look. bare with me this is my first engine build so i help is much appritiated
ik it may take a while but if any one wants to look through it and give me pointers that would be greatly appreciated. as stated before. this is my first engine build. and if going ham as you can see haha
I would look at the shp dart block. You'll need to spec out piston rings and all bearings also. Might save you some headache to look for a stroker kit instead of piecing your own. Theyre usually discounted a little bit as well.
If you're getting a brand new block, you'll have to do all of the machining to it, not just the bore. Add in cam bearings and freeze plugs also
Overbore/hone jobs range anywhere from $10-$50 per cylinder depending on who does it.
Is the block one of the newest ones from Ford or an older one?
The newer ones are cast somewhat different than the first ones were.
I'd plan on the overbore/hone, align bore as well as checking/decking the block to get the pistons about .010 down in the bore.
You'll also need to get the stroker kit balanced.
Last block I had done was close to $700 for the machine work and about $200 for balancing........
GOOD,FAST, CHEAP-----------YOU CAN ONLY GET 2 OUT OF 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ehh **** it im gonna look into the dart performance 363 stroker. the only thing is im looking for around 9-1 compresion so i can run a turbo in the near future. instead ill just do a 347 cause i can get all the power i want out of that. this should do just fine. just bolt on and go from there
