Re: stroker kits

Where did u get the price of 1100 dollars from for the stroker??? And for the money of the crate engine I would do up the original motor with a charger or better internals

Re: stroker kits

That price of $1100 is crank only. You'd be looking at $2800 which will include crank, rods, and pistons ready to install from COME racing!

Re: stroker kits

Would the crank only give you any benefits, I have not heard of these kits.

Re: stroker kits

check out www.comeracing.com they seem to have their kits already nutted out.

Their crank only kits are there for those that are going to be supplying their own rods and pistons. Correct me anyone!

go to vpw or some one like that and get yourself scat or eagle stroker kit,
get forged pistons,cast steel crank(minimum)forged if you have the dollars,h beam rods bla bla bla
on a personal note.....i have a 347 stroker
do lots of homework, dont buy cheap stuff if you want it stay in 1 piece,unless you aren't going to rev the snot off it(yeah right!!)

i dont have a torque comparison from my old 289 to my new 347
but i currently get 450nm rear wheel torque
Hope this helps.....Dave

Re: stroker kits

347 is right, go to VPW.
For $2500 you get........
"VPW offers a wide range of Stroker Engine Packages. The most common stroker kits are listed here and are only some kits offered. VPW carefully piece’s these kits with only brand name product. * KB Hyper Pistons. * Scat or Ace rods, H-Beam or I-Beam. * Scat or Ace steel or nodular crank. * Speed Pro ring set. * Clevite Bearings. * Felpro Gaskets. * Melling oil pump. * Proline engine block (Option)."

If your happy with a 9000 series cast crank, good for 500HP, you can get the same kit for $2000.

C.O.M.E. specialise in chev and holden engines, their windsor stroker kits are a crappy attempt to get more money out of more of the public. Their kits are more expensive and have less in them. They have designed their kit to use std chev rods, and have modified thier crank to suit.
Go the VPW kit, best value for money, i have just spent about 2 months researching this to make sure i et the best kit for my engine.

Re: stroker kits

to get a true 347cu, you will need to bore the block 30thou. If you want to stick with std pistons, you will only end up with 341ci. Apart from that there is not really anything else you need to do to put it in, but to get the best out of it you will need a better breathing top end.
Ported heads, or after market heads, upper and lower intake, TB, maf, cam, ........... and so on.
But you can just put the kit in, and drive as is, will give you a lot more torque donw low. WIll loose some of your rev range in a std application, but you will not loose power.

I say go for it.
