    Default Another 308 post

    Scat crank was in the $500 mark. Eagle chev 6 inch rods off eBay around $300. DSS forged 383 pistons from summit around $580 at my door. Took me around a year waiting for “the bargain”. Didn’t balance though. Ran out of money. Doh!

    Offset grind cranks are usually used with 265 Hemi conrods which these days are probably pretty thin on the ground and that's possibly why the crank is cheap. Unless you can get a whole rotating assembly (crank, rods & pistons) it'll most likely be easier and cheaper just to buy a 355 Scat crank & rods and pistons to suit.

    Agree and you get some more cubic inches.
    Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t like more inches.

    Since it comes with all that (crank, rods & bolts) and you just need pistons that 330 stroker sounds like a good option.

    Many years ago an old mate had a 330 stroker and it went well and he revved it hard.

    Noting your going to use a cam similar to a 288 and your using VN heads, around 11:1 comp, I’m going to join in with Pauly and say stick a decent single plane on it and rev it...

    They also used thinned down sbc rods and bearings. TK mentioned it in one of his posts.

    This deal could turn out well for the op.

    Will confirm on rods going to look at it / grab it friday , i do want a single plain but the end goal is just to get it running first in the car and well if i have to cut a hole in the bonnet big woop geez it would look awesome with that haha also went and brought a 2 inch bakerlite 4 hole spacer for under the carb , id like to name a certain company but i wont i wanted to put in a order with them 1800+ for rollers balancer sump ect .. but they would not match vpw pricing ( out of stock and im impatient) i always thought they would price match.

    The 308 offset ground stroker uses a 350 piston and you deck the block to suit. If you use a 327 piston you will need to machine the top about 0.100".
