4.6250 piston in a stock 350 block

Post by SchmidtMotorWorks » Sat Sep 30, 2017 1:34 pm

Can you figure out how to put a 4.625 piston in a stock 350 block?

This is a stupid question to waste your time.

Please make 20 pages of posts arguing about it.

Shouldn`t that be at "advanced tech"?

No problem, I do that all the time with 1960's, 283 blocks and make over 4,000 HP with no failures. :^o #-o

How much bore energy would that give us?

If we take 4.625 and subtract that from 350, then add 7.56113 ( that number makes the formula work because its a 4.625 bore) that will give your the bore energy.

I'm off on vacation tomorrow, if anyone would like a free sample of my program, just make a pre-order for my new book. I may mention you in it of you tell me your tricks and trade secrets.

The equation doesn't work unless you use PI in it.

All good equations use PI....since it's an irrational number

That's why I simplified this formula, so you don't need pi.. we just manipulate the data until the equation works.

On a similar note, I would like to see someone come up with the proper way to install this 10" piston in a 426 Hemi...

One thing I forgot to mention, a 4,625" piston will make at least Twice (double) the horsepower in a 327 block VS a 350!
