    I am sure the issues have been fixed, but wrist pin clearance issues were a problem using the stroker in the stock block.

    Would rather go with something proven and solid. 402/408

    No replacement for displacement, some say otherwise tho talking about boost and such, but if I boost my 408 with the same amount of psi you are I am sure mine is still gonna be faster lol. Always told my buddy that who is all into 4 cylinders, he would get mad and jump straight to the whole well mines cheaper booshit.

    All depends, on the head/cam/comp ratio/drivetrain all plays a factor in how much power you make and get to the ground. Naturally aspirated and built for the street about 470-550whp.

    Well that number also depends on dynos. A buddy of mine put down 460whp when getting tuned and trapped 129mph which seemed pretty high for that power in a car that weighs almost 3500lbs with the 200lbs driver in it. Dynoed it on a dynojet and put down almost 520whp. And just cause you have a 408 doesnt mean its built to rumble, some people try to make them extremly streetable with near stock idles and what not.

    There is a red 2000-2002 ws.6 for sale in this area (didn't see year listed, but I can tell by the emission set up since I own a 99). Its got like 18" wheels on it and a custom red interior. Motor appears all stock tho. I didn't see a listed price cuz they were closed for the day, but I can get a price for you if you wish.

    Here is the info:

    Supreme Autoz
    (219) 595-0569
    5607 W Ridge Rd, Gary, IN

    I called them, but I think they are out to lunch. The car appears to be in great physical condition...I'd buy it myself if I had the capital tho the only physical thing (minor I guess) I did notice both the splash guards in the front wheel wells are missing.
