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
Paul Riva's 1995 Mustang GT 'vert's NA 331ci combo on the dyno and street
This is a video of my NA 331ci setup on the Dyno and on the street showing
its mild manners. The car has run 11.5 at 121mph with this setup and I
finally got a chance to see just how much power it was putting down.
Previously this combo made 380rwhp/380rwtq with AFR 165 heads, I have since
swapped them out for a set of AFR 185 competition heads and probe shaft
mount rockers. I knew the car was substantialy stronger, but now I have
hard data to back it up. This combo was never intended to be a NA combo as
I bought a PTK single turbo kit for the
car before I even built this setup. The car was down for 2yrs so I decided
to just throw it together NA and run it this way until I had the funds for
the fuel system needed for the turbo.
Its been so fun and headache free that I've kept it NA for nearly 3 yrs
now! I still have a T76 single turbo
setup for it, but when I keep getting numbers like this I'm inclinded to
keep it NA and avoid the associated issues that are bound to happen when
the turbo goes on. I NEVER thought I
would see results anywhere near this with an NA stroker, even a NA
dedicated one. If I had known that numbers and streetability like this
were possible I'd have never bought the turbo and this combo would be a 10.5:1 363 NA mill
