Best forged rotating assembly to buy?


Ok guys.. So my last trip the track I messed up to pistons, so I'm looking to buy a new forged rotating assembly and reuse my stock block and I have thought about using my stock crank.. Just wanted to see what company you guys think I should go with.. I will be spraying the car with a 150 shot when I get it back together, so I need to know what cc pistons would work best.. I also will be upgrading my fuel system as well..

If you are building the engine, i would at least find a forged cobra crank to slap in it. The stock crank is good for a little bit of power, but i personally wouldnt take it pass 550ish. Rods are the weak point. Then obviously, get some arp main studs (i have some used for sale if youre interested)

Yeah, its normally their shortblocks or customer service. A while back, their oil pump gears were shitty but i think they fixed that. Usually, their parts are pretty good though

Don't worry you will be fine on the 125 shot.. I added the 150 jets and that's how it happen.

Im doing a DSS 5.0 stroker rotating assembly in a cobra block, rated to 1000hp, Figures that should be enough for 15 psi (+/-) and a 200 wet

These guys have given you some decent suggestions. But, if that is all you are gonna spray, I would honestly only replace the pistons and rods. The crank will hold up just fine. Summit has some decent pistons and rods to choose from. Stock compression is just fine, so a piston with a similar dish is good.

Thanks for the info 04redgt if I decided to bump it up to a 200-250 shot would I need to replace the crank as well?

The cranks are stronger than what some think. To give you an idea, nmra racers use them in their 9k rpm motors! I would be willing to take one to 600hp, but I don't abuse my stuff like some people and I would only subject it to that at the track.

cranks good to 600 (+/-) soo if your going to be making that or more on the bottle id do it, or if you have plans for other power increasing mods down the road go ahead and do it while your there, Cobra crank can be had for 350ish
