I know the old adage that more cubes mean more horse, but in this day and age with all the technology out there, which size [forged 427 vs forged 416] would you do with a centri blower? :coolgleam:
Do blower motors work better with a longer or shorter stroke? Do blowers even care? I guess, as stated, it depends on your price range. (I like 427 as it goes back to the numbers of the big block days).
The engine with the larger stroke will make more torque than the engine with a short stroke, correct? I believe this has to do with the distance from the connecting rod to the cranks axis of rotation. However, the engine with the larger stroke will not rev as high as it gains piston speed more quickly than a short stroke engine. Do I have my facts straight, or do I only have half the story?
Can a 416 be done with a LSX block?
I can PM the number of someone who can answer all these questions from experience. He's probably one of the most knowledgeable guys in North America when it comes to centris. He built a buddy of mines yellow vert and with a little 347 it made over 800 rwhp and he commutes from London to Toronto on a daily basis.
