What are the letters and casting number on the two rear crank weights? I think it's a forged GM crank.
Not unless GM has already started casting cranks in China. It has "GM" on the rear counter weight.stock rods chinese crank??????
Didn't see the GM tell i really blew the pic up...But it won't be long before the Chinese start casting replacement cranks with GM markingsNot unless GM has already started casting cranks in China. It has "GM" on the rear counter weight.
Cast GM crank, 3/8 rods, and cast (possibly hyper) pistons, all stuffed in what appears to be a perfectly good 4 bolt block
My guess is you'll have to do something to make it lose oil pressure or NOS it to death to kill it.so, the set up should be good until it blows up, right?
geez Steve, I didn't even see where he said he was going to put turbos on that thing. I did read where he said he NOS's some.I wouldn't mix turbos with a cast crank and 3/8" rods.
Look at it this way, turbos are the best power producing mufflers on the planet.I am not a 'boost always on'' kind of guy. Actually, I have only put it to the floor once...it does help get skiers out of the water though.
I would really like to build something with a stouter bottom end after this season though.
