Re: 352 to a Stroker

Here's the deal, if you are buying crank, pistons and connecting rods, there really is no reason to liming cubes. In fact, the 445 will be milder in behavior at the same power level. Barry will likely tell you that, I have known him a very long time, he'll steer you right

If you are not buying connecting rods the 416 is slightly cheaper, because it uses a 6.49 rod out of a 390, unfortunately it will not use the 6.54 short stroke connecting rod.

Don't worry about too much power, there were 460s in mellow grandma cars as well as 455s Olds and Buicks, 500 Caddys, the cubes don't make it radical

70 Sportsroof, 427 FE/489 cid, TKO-600, 31 spline 4.10, A/C. modified Mass-flo EFI/reprogrammed A9L/CnC ported Victor.
