Hi Dan, Thank you for saving my face.. If no one had responded to this post today, my face would look nothing like it does now
>Did you buy this directly from K1 (or perhaps from a vendor who supplied the pistons to go along with the K1 crank and rods)?
SO.. I bought the kit directly from K1, they recently (last year I think) partnered with wiseco to put out these kits. It has the 6.2" rods, and shorty pistons. Is this a problem for a mostly street, and occasionally strip engine?
>Do the pistons have valve reliefs for canted valve heads or inline?
Yes they are dished, with valve reliefs. Here is a pic: [IMG]
Is the stock 351C deck height 9.5 or 9.2? I can start measuring and actually figure out if they will clear or not... I WOULD just mock it up and see, but this "kit" didn't come with bearings either... So I can't at the moment, until I spend even MORE money on bearings. The kit is basically pistons, rods, crank, balancing. For $2250 including tax.. Anyway, I'll try and stop ranting.
Thanks a ton for all the info on balancing
Very informative sir. It is internally balanced, which I like the idea of, but the extra money for a damper and flywheel is a downer.. considering the scat kit comes with both for about $2000. For the record, the only reason I went with K1 was because scat is out of stock on the 408 cranks until at least the end of May. (which when I started all this, seemed like a long time away. Now, not so long)
Again, thank you so much for your time! I TRUELY appreciate you guys on this forum... This build would be completely impossible for me without you.
