    I'd call Texas Speed to see since I have no idea if they are "0" decking the block or not,,,or how far down in the hole the pistons are,,,so you can't do the math for an exact number.

    I'd personally go with the 404 ci motor that is only .010 over. That leaves you another .020 over down the road for another refresh if need be.

    The extra 4 cubes are not going to yield any noticable HP gain anyway, so you may as well save it and get your money's worth out of the block.

    Just to add,,,,that $3500 price tag sounds like a decent deal for what ya get. And before this gets into an added weight discussion,,,you can take it right back off the front with a tubular K-member

    This swap has been done a million times, so there should be a harness kit offered by now to extend your original harness to some of the sensors that have moved on the cast iron blocks,,,so there may be some hidden added expense here just to give you a heads up on.

    Oh, I took no offense to anything you said, you were right on I'm just never serious about most anything, ask Crash

    You can keep the quote brackets and change any of the inside text, very sneaky

    No problem, and you have very good info on engines, for my future reference

    (hopefully much further in the future than poor Crash, I can't afford a new build right now.)

    Geazer? Wait a minute... It's spelled G-E-E-Z-E-R (see below my name). And I AM a geezer and even I know what (most) of these abbreviations are (gotta keep a leg up on these younguns). Are you telling me your geezerer (I know it should be "more of a geezer") than I am?

    Just so you know I don't put much emphasis on anything computerized I have a hard time keeping up anymore.

    Until someone reminds him of the other things he'll probably have to do once he gets this new high-powered motor.... at least a tranny rebuild, right? I've always been told that new motor + old tranny = bad. And do you have something other than a 10-bolt Crash?

    im gunna try and maybe find a slightly used stroker if i can. i figure with the way the economy is right now there are prob some really good deals. that way i could just drop it right in. plus new is always way more expensive. just a thought
