Re: Need 427 build advice
In your case the heavy slugs may help balancing the crank. And defintely check it for cracks with the green snot.( Magnaflux) Hey if you find parts issues , then you can go buy new Chinese iron. If not, stick to the plan, its good. Not everyone needs to roll around in a street 540!
You'll likely never need the data but those old 427 wagons with their Qjets and 3.31 got exceptional highway milage for the day. 496 wont do that. Even a 4" arm costs there. But I submit, its academic for most of us. PS I biult my old L88 427 to different specs, and it ate oem 502's with ease even gear hampered. So...... DO IT YOUR WAY!
