--- Best Stroker motors...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jon350 - 9:38 pm on Mar. 1, 2001

Anybody have good or bad things to say about the company their stroker was from?...or perhaps you got parts from them and liked or disliked them...let me know, I'm trying to find who does the best quality 351W->393-408.
For instance C.H.P., D.S.S., D&D,Ford Motorsports, P.A.W.,or Summit??
I'm looking for something in the area of 550hp and around 500ft/lbs-tq....I'm wishing it to be semi streetable...but it'll spend most of it's time on the SCCA and VARA circuits.

I used a Coast High Performance 408 stroker kit. I have been real pleased with the kit up to and including this point.

I just finished a 331 stroker that I ordered from Coast High Performance.
The kit came with the wrong size rod bearings and incorrect piston rings.
I had to eat the shipping charges back to Coast to receive the right parts.
The engine turned out fine, but they need to pay more attention when making up the kit.
My nickel's worth.

I have used coast high performace,and those guys are pretty good there!

They seemed to have help in any area I needed.

I know they will be able to help you for the type of power you are looking for!

I am starting a new engine project,its a stroker 460,well for that kit Ill be using a SCAT stroker kit,the one Im probobly going with is there 557 kit.

So it could not hurt to go on there website and see what they have.

Here is there address www.scatcrankshafts.com I know alot of guys who have built some very powerfull motors using scat parts,so this place has proven them selfs to me!

Hey, Scott. Check with www.jepistons.com. Their Yates head type pistons match the twist wedge heads, and they've got lots of variations so might find a shelf piston that would work out.

I have a Speed-a-motive stroker kit. 351W to 426. The parts look first class, I haven't put it together yet. Time is at a premium right now.

They were also very helpful on the phone when I was ordering it.

It is going in 68 FB.

I have a friend that bought a 3500 dollar 408 stroker short block from C.H.P. And with 100 miles on it he had a rod bearing failer. He sent the engine back, and 6 months later when they got around to it the repaired what was broke at no cost. But he really had to jump through hoops to get chp to make it right. Thats my only dealing with chp. For what it is worth.
