426 stroker updates?

Has anyone installed a 426 stroker? Ordered mine last week. I have also ordered a nitrous kit. Shop is now researching improvments needed for the drivetrain. Should be done by mid May.

My 426 supercharged shortblock is complete. The completed engine should be on the dyno within 10 days, without the supercharger.


HELP please on the driveline, especially getting BOTH rear tires to spin.

My charger will be a 10 psi version for the low compression stroker. I don't think you would like to accidentally bolt that on to a stoke bottom end.

You will have yours up and running a couple of months before mine I bet. After the motor is run in it goes to AZ to be torn down & crank wheel replaced for the new electronics. Unfortunately, I may wind up shipping the JGC for the assembly.

Mine is still in the shop, Getting the DR heads, Headers and Cam. We had valve and piston clearance issues with Little Boy cam or it was the incorrect cam. Thursday the new cam should arrive and reassembly should start! I have Ants in my pants!!!!!

Seems like there are a lot of cam issues that some people talk about and others choose not to for some reason. How could a vendor (part timer or not) not of warned about this combination or verify what was sent to you?
If my combination works or not I will let the others know as you and GC etc. do so it may save others from costly mistakes and needless downtime.

Please keep us informed on your engine build. What do you think about some of the knock issues the guys are posting?

I have the dash hawk and I will monitor it.. But I like you am in the south and I will have 93octane in it 99% of the time the other times it will have 100-110! So I hope to have 0 knock issues!!

Gculver I believe has had every cam known to man. But I dont think he let anyone know what the out come was. I know he is running the hellfire now and that is what Franks Racing Cams are sending out now. For some reason either the little boy does not work with the 6.1 or the wrong cam was sent to or from Matt at DR. Either way BOTH Matt and Franks were very helpful on the phone with my shop in trying to determin what problems we were having.

I hope with this new cam all my problems are fixed. I am going through withdrawals this is my second week w/o my JEEP

The results better be good!!!!
