Forging Ahead with Armor
The heart of our 383 is Eagle's standard forged 4340 chromoly steel crankshaft. While we could have gone with a cast crank, nothing beats the longevity and strength of a forged unit. Our 3.750-inch stroke crank came internally balanced and was even decked out in Eagle's newest ESP armor finish. While it may look like chrome, we assure you it's not. Eagle's finishing process allows the crankshaft journals to glide on a film of oil more easily and provides added protection against corrosion. It also reduces stress risers where cracks can begin to form.
