For sake of argument lets say you build a 700 hp engine. As a Ford guy I know a I can build a 512" budget storker with an off-set ground stock crank (4.14") get a set of Scat 6.536" BBC rods and some off the shelf pistons and a decent set of heads, with an .060-.080 over two bolt stock block and make 700hp+ on pump gas pretty damn easy.
That engine will live in a jet boat river racer very easily,like forever even with some Nos on it. Now if that engine where in a drag car with a set of 10.5-12" slicks would the "shock" of the drive-train be more likely to kill parts? Broken block, crank etc ?
Would the factory Chevy parts have the same issues or is the problem going to be more RPM related and "load" related ?
