Heads gasket problem 393 cleveland

My stroker engine is being rebuilt due to a head gasket problem. The engine block was burnt and one head which was between cylinders 2 and 3. I plan on replacing the block and going with the new CHI aluminum heads;(225cc). The best time this year was 10.70et at 124mph. Hopefully I'll pick up .3 to .4 with heads and good weather.

So you going to use the new alloy block at 427ci Jim ?

Re: Heads gasket problem 393 cleveland

the 258's would be good for a large ci engine (430+ ci) IMHO.. turning past 7000.

Anything less than that would be better off with the 218cc 3v's

Re: Heads gasket problem 393 cleveland

I am going to use the new CHI heads 225cc on a standard cleveland block (.30 over) Same stroker kit, flat top pistons srp and 6 inch chev. eagle rods and a 3.87 steel crankshaft. This will make 395 cubic inches. I will be using the same camshaft which is a lunati 650 lift. The engine's best time is 10.69 et in the mach 1. I am hoping to pick up a few tenths; well, a half a second would be nice, with the new heads, rings and bearing. The block is getting 0 deck now. I am hoping to start the new block rdi aluminum this fall. However I am not sure what bore size. Any suggestions? The sizes would be 4.125 or 4.115 stroke going be maybe 4.1 but I need check on the pistons and rod length. Then I'll use my CHI heads on the aluminum block for next year, if all goes well. Thanks for writing.

-JIM

Good stuff Jim, it will be interesting to see what improvement the 3V's give over the 4v irons.
