Hi, if anyone has the first 2 pages of info from the 347 stroker info page link, that was posted in a thread a fue weeks ago can they please send them to me via email or post a new thread in here. The original link to these pages does not work. The original thread was
Or any other information or links reguarding 347 strokers would be awsome, i am begining to build one as soon as i have enough info on these motors. By the way motor will be fitted with alloy heads, run nitrous and will be fitted to a 68 cortina which is all ready for motor an has a 9 inch,
Racer, i want to go to a performance machine shop an talk like i know what i am on about and tell them what i want without getting ripped off. I want to know other peoples opinions who have built these motors. also why would i pay $850 for the scat 347 crank when i can get the rpm 347 crank for $400 ??? I am spending lots of cash on this motor so i wnat to know the right way of going about it. I want to know what are the best alloy heads to use, ect ect. what would be really nice is to have a list of items to stuff into it that is a proven horsepower figure.
The key here is.....................How much money do you want to spend?
As for best aluminium head?.... Thats easy.........Yates(the rest are second rate, except for my windsor snr's ,which are third rate!).........Please refer to rule number 1 above!
