Just out of interest... (347s)

Hi all,

would a 5.6 stroker engine drink like a pig (compared to its standard 5.0 equivalent)?

I may not reply hastily due to lack of computer access.

Cheers, -Dave-

If you think the 5 Ltr did then DON'T even think about it !!!
Most the fuel consumption on them was a result of a nut...

Re: Just out of interest... (347s)

I was thinking of rebuilding my LTD's engine with a 347 stroker crank down the track a bit (supercharging doesnt really appeal to me). My impression is that you can use stock heads and intake (obviously not gaining full advantage). will the computer need to be changed to an aftermarket type?

Re: Just out of interest... (347s)

No the maf will adjust to extra flow at lower rpm..It will be just fine..A stroker kit would be good in a heavier LTD as it generates more torque @ lower rpm...

I take it the answer is "yes", but I don't understand the 2nd sentence! Thanks for the reply, it's just something that's caught my interest. I'm not intending on doing it to mine (it's for sale, & if I can't sell her, the last thing I want to do is stroke it!)

Re: Just out of interest... (347s)

I'm not sure what "drink like a pig" means but round town I get about 20 litres per 100km (350k or so per tank) and on the highway I get considerably better (between 12 and 14 litres per 100k - roughly 600k per tank). Of course it all depends on how frequently and how hard you hit the loud pedal

Re: Just out of interest... (347s)

Well, I've got the best answer. I converted an AU2 XR8 220 to a 347 and changed NOTHING ELSE (i.e. effectively only the crank rods and pistons were changed). The fuel consumption was better than other people were getting stock which I put down to being able to use less throttle pedal and less revs in normal traffic (it was a manual). Of course that didn't last long.....

Re: Just out of interest... (347s)

Sorry to hijack but I was thinking about stroking my EL XR8 to 347ci and I am wondering how much power I should expect. I plan to also replace the heads and intake with Trickflow items. Also can anyone recommend a brand of stroker kit, the COME kit looks interesting. Cheers.
