347 stroker??

So I've been getting the list ready for the summer build up and I'm torn with what to go with as far as stroker kits. I figured go big or go home... so i was leaning toward the 426 kit talking to people they just say it would be miserable to drive and i should go with a smaller kit and possible go with S/C or something of the sort down the road. According to this company their 357 stroker makes 421 hp 468tq. very big number especially compared to the 383 393 ect. figured more Ci more powa right? well what makes the 357 pack such a punch is what i want to know. and any wise words from you fellows out their of course.

Re: 347 stroker??

shit dude i was at navarre last weekend. I was tearing apart a talon for all it's AWD parts/motor/tyranny. putting it all in the cougar lol

anyways i wont wanna sounds childish or anything but..."the website said" that it would put down that much power (421hp 468tq). now dont get me wrong i would love to get a 460 and drop it in the cougar and watch all hell break loose but... that car is not a stiff framed car. that much low end torque would twist the living shit out of her, and i plan on keeping the frame straight. so i figured I could stick with the cleveland b/c doesent put down as much low end as some other motors. that way i can still get my fast and furious kicks without ruining my car.

the 357 kit is a stroker not meant for boring.
