    Thinking about stroker? opinions suggestions?

    I have 155,000 miles on my car the tranny needs rebuilt So i was thinking winter project and doing some more stuff to it also

    I have a TSP Torquer V 2 cam and am looking into a good set of heads.

    Would a 383 stroker help this... how much of a HP gain will i see adding a 383 stroker to the head and cam car?

    How much different of a cam will I need if I stroke it. I've seen larger stoker kits but looking to those experienced to see where i should go.

    I want to stay naturally aspirated in this car. I already have full bolt ons. ( except intake and that's coming soon) Below is a list of what i have

    Thanks guys.

    Volant intake, SLP Bellows. ( plan on FAST intake probabally 92/92) currently P&P throttle body, Fridanza light weight fly wheel. Torquer V 2 cam ready to install. It's a 6 speed.

    suspension.. well double rod end LCA's panhard, koni's over strano springs and sway bars. so that's not a big worry right now i have sub frames to install if/when needed.

    Thanks again.

    the wrist pins are higher on a 383 and i am told that causes some problems. Also technically becuase of the longer stroke the 383 will wear faster..but blah to that. the 383s are torque monsters..but so are the 396s...really its up to you. but keep in mind dont go cheap on the 383s...make sure you get good heads for it to breath..some trickflow bare castings or le2's..when everything is all said and done it might be better to fork over a lil more cash and go the 4xx route

    That's what i was wanting to know.

    with the mileage on the engine it will need rebuilt at some point... so it's prob. going to be much better to just keep the engine at 346 and then do another engine for the T/A later. Still plan to do heads and cam on this engine and possibly rebuild it.... an S10 Extreme with a LS1 in it seems strangely appealing... as do some other projects i have in mind.

    i'd imagine the wrist pin problem would depend on the company that makes them... i'd assume that each company has a bit of a different design... the other thing is you will always hear and remember problems over praise... but the people i've talked to that have stroked thier LS1 wished they had saved and just bought a larger block like a 402+...

    Save your money and do the build right, and I wouldn't do a 383.

    Get an LSX block. You can get them for a couple of grand and those blocks will handle anything.
