330 stroker for 5 ltr

Does anybody know about the 330 stroker kit from Masterstroke?
From what I know of it consists of a 302 Cleveland crank, your windsor rods and a set of Chev pistons for half the price of a 347 COME racing kit.
Obviously its not going to produce the same power as the 347 but from what I hear, the 330 will be more reliable and can easily accept NOS and a bolt on supercharger and perform without hassle all day!

I also heard that a 347 is a good combo but compressing those type of cubes in a small block is a very tight configuration which will leave no room for mistakes or anything else for that matter.

I may have got this wrong, so please correct me......

I beleive that the benefit of a 330 stroker is that the angle of the rod is not so severe and reduces the side loading on the piston.
COME stuff is damned expensive but you get great quality products.
Get the Parts Peddler mag and you will find more stroker kits for sale than you will know what to do with.

The 2 other benefits are:

1.The top ring is further away from the piston crown and will not get too hot.

2.The oil control ring is not going through the gudgeon pin hole and this will help with oil control more effectivly.

We are about to undertake a 342 (new block, 347 if 30 over) using Probe Industries stuff including 5.315 rod instead of 5.4 as seen in most 347's. This gets the oil ring out of the gudgeon bore, top ring further down and has the increased capacity. The downside is rod ratio, sort of compensated by a big offset gudgeon (60 thou) which should reduce the side loads but never really be as good (IMO) as a 5.4 rod. Something to consider anyway.

Re: 330 stroker for 5 ltr

fair enough fellas. I'm not saying COME racing has crap products, if fact I know that make excellent stuff coz I have friend who have their kits, but I myself am interested in the value of stroking and making sure I can increase the reliability at the same time by not putting the engine under uneccesary stress.

Re: 330 stroker for 5 ltr

Go 347 for sure, i priced up the difference between 331 and 347, and the 347 kits are cheaper.
VPW do a 347 kit with SCAT crank, forged h-beam rods, probe forged pistons(your choice of compression) main caps, rings, oil pump, gasket set, all for $2895. I have mine on order. You can get the same kit for $2500, but it comes with KB HP pistons. If you want to run NOS, get the forgies. If your worried about the rod angle on the 347 kit, get a set of 289 windsor pistons. They have a higher pin hight, but you will have to get different rods to compensate.

I have also seen one of these kits develop 650HP at the fly, naturally asperated, with nos, revving to 7000RPM. Not bad.

Look at the list on my signature as too what i am piecing together, and a computer dyno program has estimated my out put at 800HP + at the fly.

Re: 330 stroker for 5 ltr

will cost about $18-20K for the motor, and about $15K for the car and driveline. Hope to get the car into the mid 11's on the qtr.
Once all development is done, and i am happy with the car, the engine and gearbox are coming out and being replaced with std units, and i will drop the donk into a Capri, and wind some more boost into it. Hoping to run a 9.99 or better in the capri. :-)
