Why Are D.S.S. Main Supports So Important?
It seems that everybody today is trying to get more and more power from
their engines. Increasing engine RPM's, or adding Nitrous, turbos' or Superchargers are some sure ways to increase
power, but they can be very tough on durability. Additional stresses
generated by running higher RPM's or using power adders are transferred
directly through the pistons, rods and crankshaft to the block's main
webbing. Commonly, the reciprocating force can overwhelm the main bearing
caps and the fasteners that hold them in place. Under heavy loads, the
caps will shift or "walk" from side to side. This movement is transferred
to the ends of the main cap fasteners, causing the threads to become
fatigued. Eventually the main web cracks, leading to a loss in oil
pressure and possibly total destruction of the block and internal
components. To combat this problem, Ford Racing offers Splayed Four-Bolt
main racing blocks. While excellent pieces, the price puts them out of
reach for the average enthusiast. This is where the D.S.S. Main Support
System comes in. Starting at $329.95 the D.S.S. Main Support System is a
very cost-effective way to add strength to a production block without
breaking the bank.
Made of 3/4" Billet 6061-T6 aluminum, the D.S.S. Main Support System
effectively dampens damaging harmonics, virtually eliminating main bearing
walk. The Main Support Plate is fastened to the main caps using custom
ARP main studs (included), effectively tying all five main caps together.
By adding another main web structure you dramatically increase the block's
strength, helping both block and crankshaft life. Our Main Support System
makes it possible to produce 650-plus horsepower from a production

DSS Racing 306 Engine Failure (Engine Knock)
The video shows the ~3,600 mile engine built by DSS Racing having a knock
in the bottom end from two burned main bearings found when we removed the
oil pan. It appears to have be due to improper installation during the
