I have a 2006 iq 440, and a 2001 600 edge x. Is it possible to put the top end of the 600 on the bottom of the 440. The reason i want to do this is because the 440 crank has 100 miles and the 600 has 5000.

Yepp its doable.
You have to shave the top half of the bottom and also mount the 38 carbs plus get a new exhaust or get the 440 rebuilt.
Done a couple of them and they run really good i must say.

How much do you shave the top half?

About 2mm, so you get the squish correct.

OK, this thread got me thinking....I have an 06 440 sitting on the shelf, and a brand new VES660 kit sitting on the shelf, and I really don't have much into either one sooooooo. I am thinking about building a premix, race gas 660 off my 440 for a chopper drag sled prodject. I have heard rumors that you need to mill the 440 case .100" or 2mm or this or that, but does anyone know the EXACT measurement to mill the 440 case to run the VES600 cyls? I have searched and searched and keep getting different answers. Any engine builders out there want to put this to rest once and for all? Thanks Craig

2mm is what i shaved mine and that should be roughly what you have to shave yours too.
Why you get different answers is because everyone is using different heads and gas and also therefore different measurements on their shavings.
Because it differes between heads and their squishbands the easiest way is to bolt everything on and measure the squish and how much you have to shave your top bottom half in order for you to get the squish you want or need.
With race gas you can use a tighter squish and if running pump only you have to open it up a bit.
