Opinion on Scat Stroker Kits

What's up mustang evolution, I'm just curious what everyone's take is on Scats stroker kits over other companies. I'm looking at the 408 stroker kit for an old cleveland. I know the Cleveland's aren't for this section but it's going in a fox and when I used to come on here this is where all the intelligent people on this forum are haha. But I'm looking at this kit-( http://summitracing.com/parts/sca-1-94270be ) from summit racing and was wondering if anyone's used it or used scat products and have had any issues with anything. Thanks in advance.

Read me for a premier engine builder's take on SCAT.

Also, why a Cleveland?

I'll read that now thanks. And I already have one and I like that I rarely see Cleveland's around me. It's all windsors. And I have read some good things about them and have most of my build planned out good just trying to pick out good brands and what brands not to use for certain parts

Its all Windsors for a reason, the Cleveland was a "failed" motor and the parts for the Windsor are everywhere and dirt cheap. But if you were to make a Cleveland with some good power it would be very cool and not something you'd likely run into outside of a big car meet.

However I'd still recommend a Windsor but its not my car.

Also, as I'm sure you are reading, that link is not all just his take on SCAT but engine builds in general. He does rate the SCAT cranks and rods as the best ones to use though.

I have had 2 bad experiences with Eagle cranks and my engine builder despises them also. He also speaks well of Scat that they balance well and easily.


My eagle crank was a nightmare.......sometimes a good deal is not so good in the end.

The standard line of Scat crankshafts are forged in China and roughed in. Then they are shipped to LA where they are fully finished and nitrided in house. Eagle is boxed and shipped as is from China.

So yes and no... The above is the reason SCAT is so much better.

I hear ya but I had it out with Eagle literally. It started civil where they explained the process. The cast stuff is done in China but finished here by "American" hands and standards. Who really knows but my machinist said that Eagle's cast stuff is some of the worst stuff and hates working on them. He did me such a favor that I had to give him some end mills and cutter that I had here laying around in my office (I sell industrial machinery).


I have thought about building a 351 stroker but just don't feel like starting that whole process quite yet LOL.


OP you want something American.....try Oliver made here with American stock.
