Question Ford 557ci Stroker Kit

Hello, I am thinking of buying the Scat 557ci Stoker crank and H-Beam rods, only thing my bore size now is 040, as I dont want to take the bore out to 080 ( 4.440 ) is it possible to fit other pistons so that I can have a bore size of 4.420 060. ( Maybe Chev Pistons ) as I have been told the Scat Rods use the Chev Pin size, as i am thinking of spending my money on the Stroker kit instead of the head work with my 460ci rebuild, caught between a rock and a hard place... Thanks Jamie, Australia.

Re: Ford 557ci Stroker Kit

I have spent the last 24 hours searching the web for information on the 557ci Stroker kit, looks like I will have to take the bore of my 460ci out to 080. ( 4.440 ) if I go ahead and purchase the kit, I read in one forum that one of the bores might need to be sleeved due to having water passages, I know it all depends on the thickness of my block. Could some-one who has installed this kit into there engine tell me if they ran into any of these problems... ( I have a D9TE-AB 460ci engine )

Jamie,

Most of the Ford stroker kits use a special stroker rod that makes use of the BBC's 2.200" crank journal and .990" piston pin diameters. Yes, it is certainly possible to use a .060" overbore piston with that kit, but whethor or not anyone makes one for your application is dependent on your crank/rod/piston combination. Specifically, does this 557 kit use a 6.700" rod or a 6.800" rod?

Paul

Most 460 blocks will go to .080 overbore (4.44"). There seems to be a consensus that anything over .060" requires sonic checking so as to evaluate cylinder wall thickness. I feel that this really depends on the final application of the engine. Will yours be a normally apsirated engine? What compression ratio? Which heads? Target HP?

Smile Re: Ford 557ci Stroker Kit

Hello Paul, I just ordered the Scat 557ci Stroker crank ( 4.500 stroke ) , as I work part-time I explained to the performance shop that I will have to buy the kit in stages, Crank then Rods then Pistons... they were happy with that, So I will sell all the other parts that i purchased for my prior rebuild... With the 557ci Kit he told me rod size is 6.700 and bore size is 4.440. ( 080 ) I will still get the head work done ( 2.25 inlet & 1.76 exhaust ) & open up ports, but further down the track, I will also go up to the Victor intake 2965 and a 1050cfm Holley Dominator carb,Will my Ford Racing Camshaft M-6250-C460 ( 595/621 lift ) work with the 557ci stroker kit ? I want to put together a ground shaking 460ci that is why I changed my directions with my rebuild, Heads are cast 97cc,Compression 10-5 to 1, Im not sure on horsepower figures now but Im hoping for 700 to 750... once its all complete.Thanks Jamie.

Re: Ford 557ci Stroker Kit

The one thing that I noticed Putting the 557 scat kit in my 460 was the rod bolts. I went with the bigger ARP jobs.
If you intend to rev this thing past 6500 I would do it. Mine revs through to 8000, so I needed to upgrade. It runs a roller cam, roller lifters and all the good bits. Mechanical injection on methonal, c6. First full pass 10.2 @ 132 in a car that wieghs 3200 pound. also dove c heads, not overpriced alloy jobs.
looking for 9.7 this weekend.
