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 :
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!
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!

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?
