Re: How stout is the stock block?

Good thread, I will be pushing some cubic inch limits on V6 blocks
and the machine shop I work with has a very good idea of what the
V6 block will handle, he has bored one .060" over years ago and
said it could have handled more... and safely for boost and juice!
Now we have even better blocks, the newer SPI blocks have all the
SC block improvements and then some. Matt making nearly 700 BHP
with a 97 block bodes well for my big inch NA setup!

Re: How stout is the stock block?

Tom Y's engine is bored .60 over and it was done years ago also ,I went with .40 on my set up and I am strengthening my block with a girdle ,also going with solid lifters and a custom grind cam nice lift and great duration,the valve train needs the biggest attention to making big numbers .

Re: How stout is the stock block?

I would very much like to see the once and for all limit of the 3.8. If I were looking for a v6 to beef up, I would look to the Ford 3.8 just because it's so "beefy". I can't wait for one of you to push the absolute limit just so we know what it is. As for longevity, Matt's had his set up for quite some time now. Justin's stock block beast has been around for a while, and GT Eater has had a pretty impressive set up for a little while (until he upgrades further).

But just out of curiosity, why is turbocharged ruled out for your plans? If you truly want to push the limit, you'll get farther with less on a turbo set up. What I'm doing now is just "Plan B", but once I get out of college and into my career (making more money), hopefully I'll have enough to implement "Plan A": Super Six Stage 3 uppers/lowers, forged rotating assembly, possibly stroked, built 8.8, bigger turbo, maybe twins because I'm going to need a big un' so I'll want a smaller one for lower rpms. I wouldn't bore tho, I don't know why, I guess it would be harder to buy parts when stuff breaks, but if I did, I wouldn't go over .60, it just seems like pushing your luck.

Good luck

Re: How stout is the stock block?

Well somebody has to push the envelope with the S/C Matt has the turbo thing covered his can make like 950 HP and my supercharger can make 1050
Much more than I will ever run , so I won't be overspinning the crap out of it to make HP plus the intercooler will handle 1300.00 HP ,so again More than needed hopefully this will make the combo more effiecient . The F-1 also has a 5.46 step up gear and should make boost really quick as compared to the 4.10on the p1sc and the D-1.I think it will be a pretty neat set up when I get it all together .

Well, it is basically this. I don't like the sound of turbos at all. They don't make me say "man, that thing sound powerful" when I hear them spool up. The sound just turns me off very much...I like the scream of a supercharger over the whoooosh of a turbo.

I know I can make more power with a turbo...but...I just wouldn't be happy with the way the car sounded at all.

I'm talking in the prior millineum, not the last few years

The build I saw listed .050" overbore, are you speaking of another?
Green car in the magazine, right?
