thinking about a dragonslayer 4340 crank or is the scat or eagle just as good as they are a lot cheaper also going to get 4340 rods and forged pistons this will be a steel head 406 on alky 500 to 550 hp 2900 lb car on e mod tires. the heads are ported 208 int 160 ex. lets hear your opinions. the only rules are iron block and iron heads we run 7000 rpms last year.

The Dragon Slayer is the exact same crank as the Magnum, Magnum Plus, and Magnum XS, without the counter weight profiling and finish work. The Dragon Slayer is a great crank if your not affraid of the weight.

sdhnc29 what you suggest for a rotating assembly? Looking at about 2000 dollar budget for parts would like to include roller cam kit in this budget also. Should I try lighter weight than the dragonslayer?

For your intended use, I'd use the Crower Sportsman rod, and perhaps SRP pistons or Weisco's Pro-Tru. This combo will keep you under $2,000 , and should leave room for most of a roller cam setup. Going lighter on part's will be directly proportional to your budget if you stick with American made steel. For the dollar investment I think it's difficult to beat the Dragon Slayer.
