Question Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

Time for me to start dreaming again - have been browsing the SVO catalogue (always a dangerous move!) and have found myself thinking about stroker kits. Some of you guys are running them, and I would love to hear about your experiences and opinions on them. I'm tending towards the 330ci at the moment, but I'd love to hear what you all would do!

I'd prefer to keep as much of my current setup as possible for money reasons, and at the moment the combo is something like this :

* Dual 2.5" exhaust with Genie 1 5/8" primaries
* GT40 upper + phenolic spacer
* FMS 65mm TB
* AU2 70mm MAF
* 24lb injectors
* EL GT ecu

Re: Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

I dont have a stroker, but if I was gonna get one I would go the 330 for the reasons I had on a thread a while back:

Re: Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

I'd go for a 347ci, you'll have more torque and it'll either make more power or it'll make the same power at less revs. The 331 is possibly better if you want to remove the factory limiter and really rev it to the moon, but then you wouldn't be doing that with the stock block anyhow.

Do you like bonnet bulges? How about a 408ci stroker based on a 351W

Sounds like you better upgrade those E7 heads hey!

Re: Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

330 for better rod angles/ oil control etc, compression.."BUT" then the TE50's engines went o/k, but they had plenty of development behind them...Another thought unless you have GOOD heads the extra capacity may not be taken advantage of...Power just doesn't come from stroking !!!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

347 is the way to go
But if you want it to rev and be reliable,bring your money with you!

Re: Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

Yes I forgot to mention the heads - considering I'd be wanting to keep my Ford intake stuff, I guess I'd be restricted to either ported 40p's or perhaps if I threw myself into debt, some nice X's or Y's... but yes the standard heads would simply have to go.

What would be everyones choice in cam, if we assumed I took the cheaper alternative of ported 40p's for heads?

Re: Stroker opinions - 330 vs 347

Im no expert on cam profiles, but i reckon the E303 or Crane 2030 would be ideal for the equipment you have and heads you mentioned. Correct me fellas
