I understand they are the same forging. Is the 500 extra worth it for a street strip car? Motor is a blown 540bbc in a 68 nova.

In my opinion, not worth the extra $. I had an old Callies crank which I cracked. Bought the Dragonslayer, and it was not as nicely finished as my old crank. That is when I learned the new Magnum is the same version as my old crank. I think it had Stealth on it. Anyway, I see no reason for the Magnum unless you plan on making serious power and really turning that engine.

Not worth it. Same forging, just more machine work on the Magnum, so it's lighter and has less windage. No significant advantage on a street car.

Since you already have a big block snout on the crank the dragon slayer would be plenty. The only reason i went with a Magnum in my small block is because the dragon slayer didnt offer a BBC snout option and there was no way i was going to run a sbc snout with an F2 side slinger.

you cant go wrong with there crank and rods. I have a SBF DRAGONSLAYER and my crank and rods came in very nice and needed very little machine work and there holding up pretty good right now.
