What type of quality crank, within a reasonable budget, is recommended? Sorry, dont have much knowhow about this. Are they all made offshore? Looking to make 900hp so 4340 forged internal balance.
Thanks in advance
Will

Seems that.....

the pro engine builders (these are FE cranks, not C's or W's) prefer SCAT over Eagle yet pro head porter J.D.C. likes the Eagles in SBF's.

For a mid priced crank I would look at Crower or Callies. For a true 900HP plus you will need a good crank, rods and Tods block

900 HP!

If I had your goals in mind I would want to use at least a sportsman level crankshaft from a business such as Callies, Bryant, Crower, Winberg, Manley, Ford Racing or Roush/Yates. Something a step above the street cranks sold by Scat & Eagle.

I dunno what your plans are, but neither the ZF, the small Pantera radiator nor street tires can handle your power goal.

Best wishes

For that kind of horse power you will need it enturnaly balenced. I would keep that in mind. So your piston rod combo will need to be light. I used a scat crank and put five pieces of heavy metal in it. To keep the weight down I used an I-beam rod but for strength it was a very expensive I-beam rod.

I'd get a Callies Dragon Slayer

August 30 2013, 4:13 PM 

Thats what I'm running in mine and it works just fine. Required two small pieces of mallory and its just the standard 4" stroke, 2.75" main, 2.1" rod. Wish I would've got the 2.0" rod, but this one was in stock at Callies and didn't require a few month wait.

Mines on its second year of 900+hp abuse and mid 8,000 rpm shift points.

Those Deagon Slayers are nice Dustin.
I have one on the shed floor!

Dragon Slayers don't belong on the shed floor! Needs to be in a block with some high end SCM parts on top. 900hp won't be a problem.

OK.....I'll bite!

Please share how your air pump/engine will flow enough air to produce 900hp utilizing the "reasonable budget".

What do you call Budget

August 30 2013, 7:40 PM 

I'll start!
My Race Heads and my Brandnew Race Intake will cover 900hp on the correct budget.
My stuff isn't 10k either ! Lol
I believe it can be done within reason.

"will"....what is your budget?

August 30 2013, 10:58 PM 




Scott Cook asks a poignant question for those of us curious about your upcoming build. Since your original question was inquiring about a "reasonable budget" for the purchase of a crankshaft.....I got curious about details of the rest of your 900hp project. Is your goal a pump gas motor? Carburetor(s)? Nitrous? Turbo(s)? Displacement? RPM range? Choice of block? Fuel? Drag? Street?

"will", inquiring minds want to know......can you brief us for a more informed and targeted discussion of possibilities. 900hp sounds like a lot of fun! Every man's budget is relative. How he achieves his horsepower goals can be very interesting.

Budget and video

September 7 2013, 6:37 AM 

Hmmmm. By reasonable budget, I meant I dont have an open chequebook. I know at times when requesting suggestions, people will suggest items that are complete overkill for the project.
No sense buying a $3000 crank when I can find a cheaper crank that will handle the 900 hp.
Im hoping to build a turbo motor with 377-408 ci. Pistons and cam will be the last thing I buy in case I decide to go NA. In that case, it wont be 900hp. Maybe 650.
Why might things change? In case my life changes. I am a small business owner and every year is different. I also have 3 growing kids. So therefore the budget is not unlimited.
Im also keeping my eyes open for a complete new build that may come up for sale when someone cant go ahead with their project. I've seen some new pro built motors go for $9500 after they spent $13k. Not too common, but they come up.
Im hoping to get a build recipe and start to accumulate parts. Im a deal hunter. I just picked up a new FRP block for about 65% of new cost. Just made a deal for a set of yates heads (I hope they'll work for my combo). No hurry. I currently have a stroker cleve and that keeps a smile on my face in the meantime.
Btw, here's a video of a launch from an open 1/2 mile race I was at a couple of weeks ago. Winner was a Lambo Aventador followed by a couple of twin Porches. Thats's why I want twin turbo's wink.gif

Yes my shifts were slow. Its not a drag car and the transaxle is quite expensive so I made sure the shifts were positive.
Have a good weekend guys and thanks for any build info you might be able to share.
Will
