What about a single turbo 460 big block. That would have to be a seriously cheap as chips stump puller.

The EFI version of that FTW.


Similar to my build, and i am using Trickflow EFI Box-R for the intake.
Mine is a little more expensive than that though.
Only reason i didnt go crate motor is, what happens if there is a problem, do i pull it out and send it back to the states???

Ive decided on either a 371 with the 8.2 inch deck height Dart block or 393 with 9.5 inch deck height Dart block also.

Ive noticed alot of people using Edelbrock heads with great succses but im looking at the AFR 205cc CNC heads.

Is this going to be forced induction or N/A?

I think you might have a hard time getting 371 from an 8.2" deck block, that would be 4.185"x3.40" stroke (estimate) and pistons wouldn't be on the shelf.

The 205cc heads suit a 363/393 very well, remember that they're equipped with solid roller springs from AFR.

Yeh its going to be NA engine

Well im pretty sure you can get them to a 371 using a 4.125 bore but that is what the guy said when he quoted me for parts and he also mentioned that there custome pistons to suit bore size. No big deal ill just get whatever cubes using the standard bore from the Dart block.

My goal is 500 hp at the engine so if i get more hp out of it then its a bonus.
