I was gonna build a pretty gnarly 355 (vortec heads, big cam, the works) but recently I've been looking at what it would take to build a 383 stroker. The price to build a 383 with some of the kits that are available now doesn't seem to be that much more, roughly $1000 give or take once all the engine work is done. I already have a virgin block (its about a 93 model block not sure if that matters) and my engine guy can do the block work necessary for the stroker for about $100 and build me some vortecs to go with it for about $300. I've seen the Eagle stroker kits for about $600 which isn't bad at all. So here's the question for you stroker guys...is the power difference between a 355 and a 383 worth the price? I know there's a lot of variables when it comes to power, but I'm a big believer in "there's no replacement for displacement". What do yall think?? Thanks in advance!
