The engine is up and running. No problems with the .0045 sidewall clearance on the Manley Forged pistons. It's been 30's - 40's here this week so I've been giving her 5 min of idle time to let the pistons expand. When she gets broke it and I do the first oil change I'll run it on the dyno and give you all a report, but I don't expect wonderful things until she gets a supercharger mounted. I changed a few of the pictures in my garage and album showing the build, I wish I could post more.

I just talked to some guys here in Arlington about building a stroker motor to 392ci and they advised me not to do it. Said the labor would be almost as much as the parts. They said a supercharger only would be the best way to go; cheaper and quicker to install. I said what about those hypereutectic pistons will they hold up to the power and they said yes except over 100hp more. At that point I'm thinking why bother if all I can get is about 400rwhp before the pistons fail??

Maybe I should just rob a bank and get the Hellcat Charger...
