Building a killer bottle fed 427 SBC STROKER

I'm currently building a 427sbc stroker and I'm going to spray it!!!

Dart Little M race block with steel caps!
Diamond racing pistons...flat top 11.1CR 043. 043. 3/16 hell fire rings
Eagle 4340 Standard weight crank
Eagle H beam Rods Clearanced
Bullet Cams custom Grind
with T&D 1.6 shaft rockers
3/8's push rods and crower bushed lifters
EdelBrock 77629 race heads with custom porting flowing 310 at 700
with Trick Titanium Valves and custom springs
Super Victor intake with custom plenum work and port matching
1050 Dominator Quick fuel carb
NOS 2 stage big shot kit 400hp shot.

We want to see around 1000hp on the bottle!

Let me know if you think I should review anything or change some stuff as I have ordered the majority of the big stuff but I havent order the Push rods or Roller Lifters or Shaft rockers yet!

Thanks for looking

Looks like a great little engine there. I personally would get rid of the Eagle crank and rods and get something better. Not much luck with Eagle, seems like everyone has surpassed them on quality and no engine builders here would spec that engine with Eagle parts. Just me two cents.

You will not be able to use 3/8 push rods, 5/16 .080 Manley or Smith bros would be the required option.

Comp roller lifters (buyer be ware) Herbert (Morel) will be your best option.

Edelbrock heads? NOT! Brodix or Dart with the HD decks will be your best option and performance.

Comp cam?

Eagle crank, it is a good crank, Same Money you can get a better Manley 4340 none twist steel crank.

I have used Eagle cranks and or rods in several motors making over 700 hp and have had nothing but good results. I have Eagle rods in the 460 I'm using in one of my Novas right now. In fact I know nobody that has had issues with Eagle stuff in many years.

A buddy here at the shop ran 3/8" pushrods on his 408 with Brodix heads. He did have to clearance for them though. Probably a 550 hp motor plus 250 spray and he ran that little combo for a few years hard on the street and mostly strip. It ran 9.40s and had done a little better than that before also.

His stuff was all Eagle rotating assembly as well.

I have the crank and rods as well as the heads currently! I will say that I have changed direction on the cam, I'm going with bulet cams now to get a more in depth cam, also crower lifters and my engine builder says we might want to look at 5/16 push rods like you mention

Definitly 5/16's for that kind of power. Sounds like you want to break your 10.50 time? Your going to need a chute pretty soon?

Its looking that way, I think on the bottle a low 9 or possibly a high 8 is in the near future

5/16" is stock size for small Chevy anyways. Of course minimum would be to go 5/16" with .080 thick wall pushrods.

My buddies was only 800hp and he went 3/8". Never bent any pushrods in his either.

After speaking with the cam guys and my engine builder again, 3/8's push rods are the way we are going to go as we can offset the rockers by T&D
