We have a scraper design for ARP hardware and aftermarket rods with the factory crankshaft ready to go, and we are still finishing up the 4.00" stroker design. These are somewhat complex to develop because we are trying to design them to fit with as many aftermarket rods and crankshafts as possible.

It takes 4-6 weeks to do a production run, so the estimate right now is sometime in January.

I need 2 of these. One for my bolt-on ls6 and .....here's the kicker.

Another variable for you guys to work with. I would like one for my ls7 that is converted to wet sump for a fcar. Will your 4" stroke one work on a stock ls7 crank/rods?

I can't say for sure if it will work with the LS7, but we will try to get the CAD model of the crankshaft and verify. We are working hard right now going through all of the different possible crankshafts, rods, hardware, etc that are available both OEM and aftermarket so that we can offer crank scrapers that work with most setups. It's quite a chore.

If it does clear, though, you would probably have to upgrade to ARP hardware because our 4.000" scraper will be designed for ARP main studs, which are larger in diameter where the crank scraper and windage tray bolt to it.

We'll keep you guys updated on the progress.

The scraper sandwiches between the block and the stock windage tray, see post #63

Yes, and we have one for the F-Body LS1 oil pan that helps make up for the fact that the windage tray doesn't cover the two front cylinders: http://www.improvedracing.com/crank-...pan-p-431.html

Gained More then improved listed.
Heads,cam, bolts on, NA stock short block. Not a fancy race engine, stock intake, TB, rocker,lifters, WP,ect.

Ive seen fast intakes (over stock) gain less back to back on the same dyno!

These are $70



$70! best bolt on per HP ever,

Im interested in this scraper. I just placed an order for the baffle. I have an L33 5.3L factory stroke. Arp main studs and rod bolts, is this recommended with the improved racing baffle also? Will you pm me please, I may have this added to my order.

Wow that's crazy if it's true! I wonder what the gains would be at 800+ hp!

Any update for the 4.00" stroke guys? We met and talked at SEMA, this is Brien.

I'd love to order one along with a new windage tray if you happen to have one along with spacers.

Let me know.
Thanks.

Sorry for the delay guys, there are a lot of variances between crankshafts, rods, etc in different engines and we wanted to make sure we got something that would fit as many applications as possible. We just finalized the designs to be sent off for manufacturing and should hopefully have them in stock by the end of the month.

I'm patiently waiting on this as well. I have a 4" lunati pro series crank and rods with an f-body oil pan. I'm using ARP main studs. I hope it will work in my application.

I'm going to need the scraper, a new windage tray, and the fbody oil pan baffle setup. It's what I need to do to move this from the box, to the car.



New shortblock, in the box.

We developed it using a 4.000" Manley crank, forged Manley rods and ARP hardware. But most aftermarket crankshafts and rods are very similar, so it should fit or require just minor filing at the most.
