Stroker or Supercharger

I was going to supercharge my engine with a Powerdyne 8psi CAPA kit but just wondering if a 347 Stroker pack might be a better option, both look to cost roughly the same. I think the supercharger will give more peak power, but the stroker may produce more down low. Any opinions?

Re: Stroker or Supercharger

Does the price of the blower include new engine internals so you can run huge boost to make good power?
If it dosent go the 347.

I have decent engine internals so strength should not be a problem, just would have to drop compression if I want to go above 10psi. Powerdyne can only go upto 8psi anyway.

Re: Stroker or Supercharger

My vote is for both.Stroked & blown.Thats what i would like to do to my car.331 with about 10 psi sounds good to me.

Re: Stroker or Supercharger

hehehe, that's what I will probably end up doing but for the moment it will be 1 or the other. Next stage will come in 1-2 years after I recover from the cost.

Stroking is obvioulsy cheaper than blowing, mind you mine has totalled nearly $15,000
My next adventure is a $18000 400ci torque monster.

Re: Stroker or Supercharger

if it was me i would go the stroker or a twin turbo deal, supercharges look great but very rearly do you see one go hard for any length of time

just my $0.02c worth

the toes that you step on today may be attached the the legs that hold up the a$$ that you may need to kiss tomorrow

Re: Stroker or Supercharger

Supercharge it mate! BUT get the vortec so that when you rebuild it as a stroker you can up the boost. Buy a better (stronger) block and buid the new bootom slowly. The vortec can be removed and used on your next car as can the bigger injectors and so on. A blower on your car a 8 psi should see well over the 240-250rwkw mark. It'll last as long as the tune is good. The only reason not to blow it now is if your compression is up around 10:1 or higher. That twin turbo setup will cost similar dollars and you'll have full boost a low rpm too.

347 238rwkw untuned and with a couple more lil things to change :)
