Ya its gonna cost me 200$ to get it turned. I was going to go with an eagle forged crankshat but i guess its not much of an improvement over the stock crank? I have heard the oem crank can hold over 500hp do you think this is true?
Haha. Our cranks are the strongest part of out motors. They've been known to handle into the 1000hp range.
I pulled the motor today and removed the cradle and rod caps. 2 spun rod bearings and even a spun main not sure if the crank can be saved but im gonna take it to the machine shop today. Looks like the filings from my balancing shaft bearing is what caused the damage, so my next motor will not be running balancing shafts.
Mitsu cranks handle a lot of power. They are forged and well made from the factory. Bearings are bearings in my opinion. I have seen many run factory bearings and factory cranks in cars making around 1000 WHP. I dont know after that. Micro polishing is required when installing a factory uncut crank with new bearings.
Yup different shop dont trust them anymore. Im doin the build myselft but everything is gonna be new except for the block. Even thinkin bout crower 280 cams, springs and retainers. I picked up a remanufactured crank for 250$ think i got a good deal there when the wanted 200 to cut the other one and the they could guaretee it wasnt bent.
I 'd try to stay away from those remanned ones. Many of them have been turned as well and as it was already mentioned is pretty much a no-no. I know it is an additional PITA for you right now but try to return it if it does look like it was cut and locate a virgin one through ebay, partstrader or whatever.
