    We don’t have a lot of context about this build. Also if that’s at the wheels or crank power.

    Hopefully it exceeds your goals!

    Sorry, It is rear wheel horsepower . I always wanted to do a Windsor build and my wife got a good Christmas bonus in 2016 so I ordered the Scat 408 kit .The car had already had 351 Windsor in it with vic jr heads and 282 comp cam. So I used the parts already had and got her running . 35 spline axles 4:10 gears and TKO 500. Name:  IMG_0605.jpg

    I got the heads , cam and roller rockers for $ 900. So I've tried to keep it a budget build . I eventually will get the heads cnc ported and get rid of the baby cam.

    That should be a lot of fun!

    Iím shooting for around 400 at the crank N/A out of the motor for my Saleen build.

    The shortblock + rotating assembly and block I have right now needs to get checked out. It appears to be a 308 CID (0.040 over) roller motor. The a-hole that sold it to me lied about what it was. He advertised it as a 30K mile OE 302HO motor from his grandpas wrecked 1990. Not so much... needless to say I now call bull**** on everything and demand receipts or pulling the pan and heads for inspection. Sucks a person has to be this way.

    i was shooting for 11.5-12:1 compression, the valve reliefs are so huge Iíll be lucky to get 9.

    If the block turns out to be crap too I may just build a 4.125 bore and 3.25 stroke 347 in a boss block or even say screw it an go up to a 363. Or a 351W based stroker build... grr...

    Ive seen AFR 185ís on a 408 turn in a 650HP/torque N/A trim at the crank dyno sheet with an aggressive cam. Not going to lie - such a build is tempting. So is a 427....

    the torque you get with the strokers is just a blast. I would stroke it if you have the funds .

    Funds are not of major concern.

    Too much low end “stump pulling” “tire frying” torque has zero benefits and a lot of drawbacks on a fox on the street, the dragsteip, or in SCCA situations.

    I’ve spent a lot of money already on my car ditching low end torque in favor of being able to rev so it gains mid and high RPM power. Watching an overpowered car go up in tire smoke is best enjoyed from the rear view mirror......

    But yes - for romping around strokers (and supercharger) are the bomb. Instant power.

    For the high rpm stuff the mod motor stuff is nice. My 2004 Mach 1 made 388 rwhp with custom cams at 6950 rpm . Where my 408 does at 5900rpm . The 4v motors are just so smooth though.
