Which set of cylinders would u guys choose to put on a 7mill billet crank for 1/8th mile drag. Right now i'm running a set of A&S drag ported stock cylinders. Would you run the billet mini twisters, cheetah cubs, cheetahs, super cubs, or possibly the dm cylinders? If possible could u guys tell which would u choose and why? Im about 230 pounds on a cut stock frame. I'm trying to get to some
6.0's to 6.40's. Thanks in advance!

They have to weld up extra area on the deck of the top half of the cases for the bigger bore (75 or 78mm piston).

Nate McCoy is a site sponsor and is knee deep in the DMs. I'm sure he could enlighten us on how much work it is, as well as the $$ as well.
I don't want to guess or misquote...

Although, I could just tell you 2,000, let you get over the sticker shock...and tell you...ha ha, just kidding, like 500 bucks...LOL.

Seriously, I'm not sure...

my question to you would be, why go 7 when a 10 is the same money?? cranks are about the same cost, you have to get the cases trenched and modded anyway. I think the only thing a 7mill is good for, is if you wanna run a set of stock cylinders and not have a spacer plate showing off what size engine it is.
Maybe some of the builders can chime in on this.

My read is because he already has a billet 7mil crank, and is only looking to replace the top end.
In that instance, I would stay with the 7.

If he was building all new, cases up, I agree...I'd rather go 10...but why try to sell a nice $ 1000 billet crank, take a HUGE hit cause no one is buying anything, when it'll work just fine and put out probably within 5% of what a 10 will, if not closer.

Just my take...

ah fair enough, I seen it said stock cylinders, but nothing about the stroke.

In that case, dm all the way!!
