    stroker kit

    I have a 97 WS6 and i plan on stroking it to a 397 with a kit from dyno performance i ve been really looking forward to it, but what i was wondering is if anyone has stroked and lt motor before and did they like the results and maybe they could offer some advice for me on what size cam i should use the kit is about 2 grand but it comes with forged pistons and 6" rods and a forged crank and i also wonder how much the labor is going to cost well i would at least like a round about number... well i would appreciate some input

    im building a lt1406 right now.
    what are your plans with it?? boost, nos, n/a, etc...

    (p.s. this will probably get moved to the internal engine forum, so if you log on and its gone, look there )

    plans

    well i want to put the "magicstick" cam in it because i have heard good things about it of course as i stated earlier forged pistons, rods, crank etc. i think i am going to stay n/a cause i am not used to messing with forced induction plus i want to keep it practical so it can be an almost daily driver i would like to get it to about 450rwhp, right now im am at 385 which is pretty good for a lt block with just minor mods and a hypertech chip. what all are you having to do to get it to a 406?
