Q & A

What's in the Box

How about a 552 cubic inch monster motor for the street?  This rotating assembly allows you to turn your 429 or 460 Ford Big Block into a stump pulling monster. Kit includes a new 4-1/2" stroke Scat cast steel crankshaft, new 6.7" Scat I-beam connecting rods, Keith Black Hypereutectic pistons, Clevite rod and main bearings and plasma moly rings.

Pistons are available in .030 and .060 oversize which give you 545-552 cubic inches. 74cc heads yield 11.4-1 and 97cc is 9.8-1.  As with any stroker kit, you will need to check for clearance between connecting rods and block. This assembly will require balancing with your balancer and flywheel. This kit is externally balanced.

This kit does not have a stated horsepower rating. The items included are a cast steel crankshaft, forged I beam connecting rods, and hypereutectitc pistons. Personally I would use this kit for applications up to about 600 horsepower. The hypereutectic pistons are not well suited for any sort of turbo or nitrous application.

There isn't any maximum RPM listed for this kit but I would personally keep it to about 6,000 to 7,000 max. The added stroke will give you huge amounts of torque even at an idle RPM.

This kit will work with stock heads and if you have 97cc heads you net 9.8 to 1 which would be the max for pump gas. If you have the 74cc your ratio would be 11.4 to one which would be too high to run on pump gas. Determine which heads you have to verify if the stroker kit will work for you.
