I'm aware of that, but using slang in your questions doesn't attract much credibility.

Re: 400c stroker/strate gas

xbgs351 just help him with your opinion on cooking with gas !!! Scat 4.0 crank + pistons + rods + gas setup sounds very expensive. How bout a 460 instead ??? Might be cheaper to build and be more efficient in the long run and not need gas unless u specifically want to use LPG ???

Personally I don't like the idea of a big block. Too wide, tall and heavy.

Re: 400c stroker/strate gas

If you have got the bucks for the crank why not??. To make this all worthwhile (ie: just not a 400cu standard clevo ) then yiou are going to be making a fairly wild motor and I would be checking that the gas mixers will have enough flow.
A 460 is a bit easier but you have problems with rego that you can't hide like you can by stroking a cleveland. I have seen big blocks in XDs before but I believe it's a tight fit, unlike the XA-C falcons.

i agree too heavy. i have a 400 yet to slot in. i thought why stroke a 351 when ford already make a decent stroker motor (+1 inch OK)

Tongue Re: 400c stroker/strate gas

If your in Melbourne (might be Syd) try finding Ivan Walker or Russell Jones. They swear by 4Vs and work on the exhaust hump. Get a cam to wake it up at 3500/4000 rpm where 4vs seem to slow. Std intake about 500hp potential. LPG, Hi-Comp should be good. Good Luck.
