What type of quality crank, within a reasonable budget, is recommended? Sorry, dont have much knowhow about this. Are they all made offshore? Looking to make 900hp so 4340 forged internal balance.
Thanks in advance

the pro engine builders (these are FE cranks, not C's or W's) prefer SCAT over Eagle yet pro head porter J.D.C. likes the Eagles in SBF's.

For a mid priced crank I would look at Crower or Callies. For a true 900HP plus you will need a good crank, rods and Tods block

If I had your goals in mind I would want to use at least a sportsman level crankshaft from a business such as Callies, Bryant, Crower, Winberg, Manley, Ford Racing or Roush/Yates. Something a step above the street cranks sold by Scat & Eagle.

I dunno what your plans are, but neither the ZF, the small Pantera radiator nor street tires can handle your power goal.

Best wishes

For that kind of horse power you will need it enturnaly balenced. I would keep that in mind. So your piston rod combo will need to be light. I used a scat crank and put five pieces of heavy metal in it. To keep the weight down I used an I-beam rod but for strength it was a very expensive I-beam rod.

Thats what I'm running in mine and it works just fine. Required two small pieces of mallory and its just the standard 4" stroke, 2.75" main, 2.1" rod. Wish I would've got the 2.0" rod, but this one was in stock at Callies and didn't require a few month wait.

Mines on its second year of 900+hp abuse and mid 8,000 rpm shift points.

Please share how your air pump/engine will flow enough air to produce 900hp utilizing the "reasonable budget".

I'll start!
My Race Heads and my Brandnew Race Intake will cover 900hp on the correct budget.
My stuff isn't 10k either ! Lol
I believe it can be done within reason.

Scott Cook asks a poignant question for those of us curious about your upcoming build. Since your original question was inquiring about a "reasonable budget" for the purchase of a crankshaft.....I got curious about details of the rest of your 900hp project. Is your goal a pump gas motor? Carburetor(s)? Nitrous? Turbo(s)? Displacement? RPM range? Choice of block? Fuel? Drag? Street?

"will", inquiring minds want to know......can you brief us for a more informed and targeted discussion of possibilities. 900hp sounds like a lot of fun! Every man's budget is relative. How he achieves his horsepower goals can be very interesting.
