    I wouldnt want a tall deck personally but either way can be done. A 496 in a sotck 454 block is very common. Just tell him you want the casting # off the block and look it up to see what it actually is.

    I had one built with a standard deck 454 block. The 496ci was accomplished with an .060 overbore and 4.25" stroker crank as for the 454's crank measures 4.00".
    Hell was full, so I'm back!!!

    The only difference I know of between a 9.8 or tall deck block is,on my 496 I used the short deck,which put my wrist pin right thru my oil control ring.That was with a 6.385" rod. Tall deck you can avoid that,I believe.Doesn't hurt anything at all.

    What do people turn these 496 too? My brother is looking at one with eagle forged crank and h beam rods? I was just wondering with that long of a arm. I told him we will proably have to take the 5.14 out. He turns his 402 bbc to 7600 in the 1/4. thanks

    I wouldnt turn it 7600 do the rods have the good L19 bolts or no ?

    I personally wouldnt want to take it over 7200-7300

    That I do not know. He just called me yesterday about it. I told him probably try to keep it around 7000 so I was close. I will try ti find out what bolts are in it. Do you know of any pistons for sale ? I think this guy has the block,crank,and rods only. I told him not to offer too much because i've seen assembled ones from Nye's for 2700 something on here. Thanks for the reply David.
