    Anyone head anything bad about Eagle?
    I read Eagle is Chinese
    Lutani is American and over double the price.

    Read a lot of positive comments about Eagle, and people running them in 700rwhp applications and not seen any issues. The forums seems to say if you are shooting for 1000+ HP then go Lutani.

    Okay 383 it is.
    Need to verify my CC of the heads to get the correct pistons. Just need to find a syringe with measurements on it. I have the plastic, just need to drill the hole.
    It will have K1 crank, scat rods, wiseco pistons, clevite bearings.

    Pop to your local vets for the syringe. They use them for administering oral medication and have volume markings, perfect!

    Yes will try them if the pharmacy no good, the pharmacy is about .8 miles, the vet is nearer 2. I thought we had one for Bailey, but must have been from a previous house.

    Ordered a 383ci, was tempted with the 395ci as well. I think it is right on the limit. People have done it, but more have done the 383ci. Still a nice increase over 346ci. So i will soon be a 6.3l
