I am looking for part #'s for a lightweight crank and rods. I need these components to be steel (not alluminum) and for a 350. If Chevrolet does not make a lighter rod and crank any alternatives would be appreciated.
Does anyone know if Brzenski can put a part number on a crank? Thanks
Just looking for more HP's

I know Crower makes a lightweight steel crank with an O.E. part number on it. I think they call it the "Outlaw" but I can't put my finger on the info right now. If memory serves me correctly, I think it's pretty expensive, but maybe not as bad as having one custom done.

Found the info:

Crower makes two "Outlaw" cranks. Both have "1182" forging number on them so they pass as a stock piece. One crank is completely stock looking, and weighs 55 lbs. The other has lightening holes and O.D. trimming and weighs 51 lbs.

Part numbers (from Scoggin Dickey):
CROP95121 ("stock") $934.95
CROSP95121 (light) $989.95

Stock GM cast cranks are around 50lbs. The forged ones are about 56lbs. Thats why a lightened 1182 GM forged crank weighs about 48-50lbs.
