I have a freshly built 540 with a new Dart block with splayed caps, used Eagle forged rotating assembly, SRP shelf pistons, file fit rings, Dart 320 heads angle milled down to 110cc chambers, comes out around 11:1, full roller valvetrain
Obviously an ideal blown alky build would utilize a GOOD blower crank with dbl keys, aluminum rods, pistons may have different ring lands?, different rings?, bigger heads etc. etc.
My question is this. Would I be making a mistake by putting an 8 or 10-71 blower with a bird catcher on alcohol on this long block with a mild tune of around 1000-1100hp keeping the rpms under 8k? I would like to eventually move up to the good blower crank, aluminum rods etc, but in the meantime, is this a feasible thing to do without destroying my block?
