Re: 347 stocker

it depends which brand you buy, but usually between 2k and 3k i think

C.O.M.E. racing has their 347 stroker kit on special at the moment for $2300, well last time i looked they did anyway

SCAT is another fairly common brand

Re: 347 stocker

A stroker kit on its own will give you 20-30kw and will cost $2-3k for the kit only. Because of the stress the stroker puts on the block, a fair bit of money has to go into strengthening and making sure all the components are top quality. A stroker built cheaply will normally not last very long. At a minimum, I would probably expect to pay $4-5k for a short motor, then you need heads, induction, cam, fuel system etc to get the most out of it.

Re: 347 stocker

The cost of the kit, then a grand for machining and balancing, then at least three grand to throw it in.....

Re: 347 stocker

About 30kw at the fly. General rule is about 1hp per cubic inch. The main benefit of a stroker though is the increased torque, especially at low rpm.

A 347 stroker will cost between $2000 to $2300 from VPW in Melbourne.

Re: 347 stocker

Don't mean to be a kill joy but a stroker on stock E7's and HO manifold isn't going to be much fun at all - grab some GT40P's and Explorer manifold from one of the importers to make it breathe a little easier - the $1600 extra will make the effective airflow needed by the stroker to produce good power and torque.

Re: 347 stocker

I'd like to see a 347 with E7's and HO for a bit of a giggle, I don't think it would rev much above 4000rpm, not that the stock motors do either.......

When you say this, do you mean they will break with normal driving, or won't last long doing 6800rpm with 550bhp?
