Re: stroker kits
i haven't started piecing my engine together yet, but i will be using an ace 5140 forged crank, and probe forged pistons. I am hoping to achieve about 8.5:1 comp ratio, but do not know what size dish piston until i get the block decked. If a can maintain a 30thou piston to deck clearance, then i can run a 15cc chamber in my piston to achieve this. It will all depend when i start to put it together.
As for the kit, they come pre balanced with the rods and pistons. I think you can even send them your flex plate, or clutch plate, or whatever your running with your trans to them, and they will balance the whole lot before they send it to you.
As for the block, i have not made my final decission on what to run. When i get it all tuned and running, i am hoping to achieve about 750+ HP at the fly, and i dont think the stb block will live up to that. I have heard of people putting main cap gurdles on the bottom end on a std block, and have not had a problem with them, and they have been running up around the 650 - 750 hp mark. So at this point i am a bit undecided. Because i am gunna run NOS as well, i think an svo block with the gurdle might be the best way.
