Check bore and only bore if you have to...
Check crank yes that can be re ground without issues..
You could get away with just freshen up?
With good ring and bearings and new oil pump, timing chain..
Then I'd replace heads, inlet, maf..[throttle body I'd replace last]
So thats $3k rapt up in induction...GT.P heads can be alittle cheaper..
Crane 2031 cam, Hi energy sump? Good gasgets and your laughing... For an extra $1400 buks a stroker 347 kit, but then that adds up alittle more on assembly...
No point in real strong parts as the weakest link in these engines is the block..
CORRECT clearances on strokers is very important!!!
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
