Default New motor build up..

I just had a new short block built for my 03 Mach1.. I wanted to make more power then what I was making and I new the stock shortblock would not hold the power I want to put down right now so I went ahead and had a new short block built..

The is a Teskid block, my stock Cobra Crank, Manley H-beam rods, Manley Flattop pistons, all ARP hardware, race bearings, ETC... The block is blue printed, balanced, Decked. All the good stuff.. I have hear these Teskid blocks can hold as much as 1500hp so that should be good for me.. The only thing I could have done better is put Billet Rods in, but those are around 1200 bucks.. Here are a few pics.

Yes you can.. The C/R should be around 10.5:1...

You can but ideally you don't want too. That would make the rod ratio worse than it already is. Stroked mod motors really don't make that much more power for the money. The piston would come out of the sleeve enough to wherer the longevity of the motor will be sacraficed. I'd go with a big bore if you want to stay N/A, otherwise just forge the bottom end and keep the same displacement and make it up with boost/spray. -Mark

Ya you can put either I or H beam aluminum rods. Manely H-beams are a very popular choice as they come standard in the 03/04 cobras and can hold alot of power. If it's a N/A motor and you need a lightweight rod the I beams are a good choice. -Mark

Sorry, habit, when rods are mentioned I immediately go to steel H or I beams. But they do have alum rods.

Yea I know who makes em.............I dont have any personal experience with Alum rods but my understanding is that they have significantly more surface area than steel rods and I was just curious if anyone knew if they would fit in a stock or 'teskid' blocks?
