This 427 cubic inch short block has a 4.125 in bore and 4.00 in stroke using customized versions of Callies' renowned Dragonslayer crank and Ultra H-Beam rods. We use a 6" rod to allow more design latitude for our custom Diamond pistons which crown the rotating assembly.
What makes Callies Dragonslayer crank and Ultra rods so good? It starts with the raw materials. Callies uses extremely clean Timken steel alloys formulated to their exact specifications. This proprietary steel is forged in Trenton, Michigan, and manufactured 100% in their Fostoria, Ohio facility.
Pride in workmanship, and attention to detail are qualities that are obvious in the video filmed during our tour of their Ohio plant. Thanks to Callies advanced designs and manufacturing prowess, this pairing of crank and rods will satisfy the requirements of the most demanding racing applications.

Topping off the rods are specially designed custom pistons. BOROWSKI RACE ENGINES, INC has worked with Diamond Pistons to develop a custom design that will outperform shelf pistons. Custom diameters and dishes available. Some common combinations kept in stock.
- Thick crown with softened edges to prevent detonation
- Better ring spacing to prevent the ring lands from collapsing under boost (about 30% wider spacing than shelf pistons)
- Lateral bracing for better side support
- Double wrist pin oilers and banana groove
- CNC lightening on the underside
