too f*ckin much... whoever buys my sprint gets the equivelant of one of my testicles.
ha! they can have both of mine when my EBs unit is all finished. I used to wonder why there wasn't many 347s (or any type of 5.0 stroker) featured in mags in Oz, after getting my own done - I now know why. Power for Dollar, and unless you do a tonne a work yourself - it is a very pricey way to go.
Although you do forget that when you're behind the wheel - torque monsters are fun!
I had quotes from 10 to 25Gs - Nat.Asp.
THERE'S NO REPLACEMENT FOR XR8 DISPLACEMENT
Mine was done as "may as well" bassis..Seeing I had STRONG block I was talked* into $1800 custom low comp 27 cc dished c.p pistons...Rods 5.4" $2200 the rest is Eagle 4340 3.25 forged crank, Mellings Hi Vol pump, Hi Energy sump, all came in under $10k including block, keep in mind I had good induction from old engine...*Mind you I didn't need much convincing to get better rotating assembly!!!
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

It has aready run mid 10's with only difference being a different intake and carb. (the Moroso Calculator predicted high nines) Last time out with the new combo i had some teething issues. (the new manifold mounted the mechanical throttle linkage in a different position, restricting the throttle travel. This has now been sorted, and I reckon it still has a 10 in it, in its new configuration. Only time will tell.....
i should point out that it is in a very light car.
