I am going against convention here so I guess these replies can be expected. Nowhere did I ever say I was worried about pushing the RA too far. Nowhere have I said I'm looking to max out the HP on the stock block. Nowhere have I even said I had specific goals for this engine. What I've said is I'm building a budget stroker for fun and I've only asked pointed questions about block inspection, stroker kits, and compression ratios. I understand I will choke a 347 with GT40 heads/intake and an alphabet cam is less than ideal. I'm ok with that. When I'm ready, I'll sell the heads and intake for what I have in them, throw some nice aftermarket parts on, get a proper cam, and probably max out the capacity of the stock block. When I get to that point I won't have to pull the motor to stroke it, I'll be doing all that work under the hood. That may not be what most would do, but is that so crazy of a plan?!
