I've heard some bad things about cast Eagle cranks, from more than one source. Is your cast or forged?

+1 Scott. On the Bad Eagle cranks. Someone posted some Nasty Pictures last year of the Eagle cranks.

Induction is the key to Horse Power.

What are your intentions for this combination? Street/Strip
Whats it in
Type Trans. Manual or automatic.

Bob did your account go down again?  at that power level regardless of anything else he shouldn't be Taxing the Crank but of course The Machine work should be Checked.

30" Rims? Do you mean 30" tall tires? If the tires are 30"
tal your final gear is probably about 3:50 to 3:55 range.

Your probably in the 325 to 350 HP range. You don't
have anything thats exotic. IE Nitrous, supercharger.

With the 4:11 gears that should be one snotty 350. It
should have a fair amount of torque at the higher RPM
numbers. 4800 and up. Not knowing the cam complete specs.
I'm guessing the duration is at around .236/.242 Just
keep an eye on your oil pressure, and water temperature.
New engines tend to run a little hotter, when street driven.

Break it in nice and slow. Get on it once in awhile. But
don't hammer it to death. If your engine builder set the
bearings on the tight side go easy on it for atleast a
2000 miles. But thats my 2 Cents....

I agree, those are 220 heads, great for a 400.,. 195's would be my choice for a 350

I agree thats a bit much for a 350, might take away from your power and torque. 357 ci I'd use 195 at most.
