thinking about building one of these, what kind of power does it make or should I scratch this thought?

I built one of those once, for a customer who wanted it and supplied the parts....it was for a 'pure' stock class here and it actually ran pretty good, it is a 334 cid. KB piston makes that piston.

the small bore size will limit breathing capabilities at race speeds.

I don't know about junk, I have seen a 500hp 305ci motor. Itdid have dual 4's and some other stuff but the guy drove it on the street.

I have one in my truck, gets great mileage and still has plenty of power to pull a trailer, but I dont turn it over 4500 rpm.

I agree with leapinlizard, "the small bore size will limit breathing capabilities at race speeds"

unless you are building it to fit a CID rule, or unless you are trying to cheat in a 305 class.....I wouldn't recommend this combo for a race engine. The same money would make more power with a different combo.

now if you want a great combo for your pickup truck that has the torque to pull the racecar trailer and still get decent mileage, I say "go for it!"

we built a 3x4 we put a 4" stroke crank in a 305 wiht h-beam rods of course we hit water in the block but just welded it up the owner of the motor loved it, so yes a 3.75 is possible
