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.
