Hello friends I am looking to build a budget forged motor. I don't want to go all out as this will just be a boosted DD. I really want a 383 but was wondering if I could put together something a little better. I was thinking since the stock 6.4 crank is forged that maybe a good place to start and what displacement if any would this create?
Here is a site of the pistons I was looking at anybody have any experience with these?
An lastly since this isn't a racing motor is it even worth it to forge the entire motor if I am only planning on running 8-12 lb's of boost? I was thinking that maybe just replacing the pistons and rods would that work or No? Of course I don't want to be cheap but I don't want to over build. Along with this I was planning ported heads and a custom 268 cam (mix of the 266 and 270 comp cams) should be good for close to 530rwhp.
So any thoughts?
