Why a stroker?...WHY NOT?
Why a stroker? Well for one, the extra cubic inches couldn't hurt and two, I could beef up a stock 302 but for pretty much the same money, I could have more cubic inches; seems like a no brainer to me.
The reason I ask about compression is that I already have a 9 lb. Powerdyne set-up pumping into basically a stock 5.0 w/GT40 heads and was wondering how much different these flat top stroker pistons would be over the stock 5.0 pistons. What cc volume is a GT40 head anyway, maybe 61cc's? I don't have to go with a flat top piston but found a pretty good deal on a complete set-up. It will be going into a street car with limited track use, and yes, probably a stock block w/a girdle.
