I've been seeing more and more 427 build threads pop up so I figured I'd share mine.

Backstory on the car:
Previously the car was SBE, Ported heads by WCCH, 227/242 .629/.615 LSA 117 cam from DMS, Harrop 2650 (8.6/3.0), Fore triple pump, FIC 1300, and all the supporting mods. She made 888 rwhp on Ignite Red and ran 9.7 in the quarter. During the last track outing she ran a few more 9 second passes but overall something decided to check out. I haven't torn down the motor but it sounded like a spun bearing. During the last pass I noticed oil pressure drop and right after I heard a squeaking sound. I loaded up the car and decided it was best to order an aftermarket block before hurting anything else.

New Goodies on the way:
I order a Dart 427 SHP Pro from Borowski with Magnum Crank, Callies H Beam rods, Diamond Pistons, and Calico coated Clevite bearings. To take advantage of the clamping pressure for the heads on the new block I ordered FED Boosted M311 heads and a new custom cam from New Era Performance. Also picked up some ID1700x to feed this thing.

How long did you run the SBE at that power level?

Curious to see what you find after taking it apart.

Odds are... mains. spun and done, I imagine, but impressive that you got that much power for that long, while tracking it.
