John,
Personally, I would spend a few hundred more and get a forged crank. If you were sticking with a 4" stroke or it was going in a street car, then maybe. I wouldn't do it with a 4.25" stroke. But that's me. I just don't think it's worth the little bit of money saved for the loss of sleep worrying about the crank. Just my opinion.

Damn Mike busted my balls before I could answer.


Nothing wrong with a Scat crank for a build under 600hp. Yes I smoked my first 496 build because I used the wrong bearings. Standard bearings rub the shoulders of the crank and filled the motor with metal and spun a bearing. Live and learn.

I ran them a number of years in my 500ish hp na engines. Then added blowers and moved up to around 650hp and snapped one between the 4/5 main caps during 2nd season with blowers. I'd spend the extra for forged as well, you never know down the road what may be done to the engine hp wise.
