    Custom Billet Crankshafts.....

    We are in the discussion phase with this. I'm just posting to let people know that there is a company who is interested in possibly providing us with billet cranks. My question is, who would be seriously interested if the option were available in the near future and how much would you be willing to pay for one?

    The crank would be significantly lighter than the stock crank, stronger than anything else in the SC motor and would accept standard SBC or 351W rods in various lengths. It would be made with a 3.75" stroke for 4.3L displacement.

    Post your feedback.

    A forged steel stroker crank for the SC block? priceless? Ideally the whole block could use an upgrade with something like that.

    Honestly I would think that if the vendor wants large numbers, they'll need to keep it pretty competitive with similar parts for other motors since finding replacement SC cranks is a pain in the arse.

    $450 - $600? Not sure how realistic that is, just comparing to eagle chevy small block models.

    Dave,
    Yes this is something I would be willing to buy. I guess I might pay 800$ for one.
    Can I be the first.

    This is not a forged crank, rather this is a billet crank and it won't be $600-800. The only current offering is from Moldex at $2300, I'm hoping this would be less but I don't know how much.

    This is not something that you would just toss in there because you didn't feel like resurfacing a stock crank. This is for that person who is building a motor with H-beam rods, forged pistons, etc., and would be expecting to either toss a load of nitrous against it or a lot of boost.

    This crank would be made to be interchangeable with NA V6's as well as 4.2's or any other Ford V6 based on the same block, so ya I will post the question to the other V6 boys as well. I'm waiting on a few more details first though.
