393 build has begun

Ordered the stroker kit from Rocket this morning and dropped the block off to Pavtek this afternoon. The stroker kit should get to Pavtek Monday or Tues. I have to drop back to Pavtek to give them my flex plate for balancing.

Basic figures inc GST for the block is $2000.
Basic figures for the stroker kit is $3000

Hopefully I can have it all back in my hot little hands to assemble shortly Spoke will Phil @ TCE sussed out what cam should work with the heads and stall. Can't wait.

Re: 393 build has begun

I won't have anything but a chassis dyno figure. I know it should be over 600fwhp. Pavtek have built quite a few 600hp+ 393's like what I'm doing [edit] My kits basically the same as yours Tony. The only difference is I'll be milling the heads to raise the compression. The aims around 12:1.

Sweet can not wait to hear the results .
The engine that I have is only the base and will be built some more in the future .
Baby steps for me 300hp standard XAGT is the most I have had before .
But once I get used to it more is there to be had .
With comp being 12:1 are you still able to run pump gas

I would have thought you would be bang on 12:1 comp strait up.
Is yours the 60cc chambers?
You should see some nice results with a cam suited to the combo and 393 cubes.

Re: 393 build has begun

Nah not 12:1 straight up because of the 10cc dish in the pistons. With a 10cc dish comps close enough to 10.7:1. My chamber size is around 60cc but they'll have to be cc'd just to make sure.

Ordered from Rocket as I got trade price not retail. HPW was dearer. Basically I got crank, rods, timing gear and pistons. I'm getting Pavtek to organise rings and bearings but I added the cost of bearings and rings to the stroker kits cost. Most kits don't inc bearings or rings.
