What are good castings, and ones to avoid. This is for a stroker application.

Thanks.

Any of the thick main webbed early modle blocks, such as the D0VE-A and the D1VE-AA. These blocks are capable of having splayed 4bolt main caps installed.

The other blocks are okay too such as the C9VE or D1VE-A2A/A2B and even the later model blocks. All blocks should be sonic tested for core shift after overbore of .030".

Thanks, I was wondering if one was better suited to stroking re: clearancing. Strength would also come into it of course.

Thanks again.

Just now about to finish my stroker 460 application (514). I used the D1VE block and the D0VE heads.

I had the block magged initially, after the boring and decking, after lifter holes were bushed and etc. Maybe it was just extra cost but it was insurance in my opinion and I sleep a lot better at night. I have spent over $7,200 in parts so I haven't done to bad for a motor that should put my 2300 tube Stang in the 5.80s 1/8th of mile.
