Re: 352 to a Stroker
Tough question on the heads.
I'd be hard pressed to spend money on C1AE heads when I could get Edelbrock aluminum heads for not much more.
I think the wise engine to build is a 445, and if you want it tolerable for daily driving just use a smaller cam. I have never driven one, but I suspect a 445 with a 270s cam would idle it 600rpms and roar when needed. It would just probably lay down early (5000 rpms maybe?). A solid flat tappet would certain fit the period correct feel as well.
