Stroker kit?!

My dad said for my brithday/xmas he would buy me a stroker kit to rebuild my motor.. Need opinions on what I should get..?! I really like the sound when you say 331 lol but obviously 347 would be the way to go. So I might go 331.?.. Opinion, prices, ware to buy?

DSS Racing 331 $980 out the door. As many people have said before if you do a 347 you might as well do a 351 swap so you get the stronger block.

You will probably need about $300 for gaskets and fluids for the car.

When I built my motor I was able to find a whole kit from summit racing pretty cheap that comes with all the gaskets.

Oh also you will still have to pay for machining.

You could also look on Craigslist for a block someone else had machined and then change their mind. I have seen those from time to time.

I think when I did my heads and intake I bought the ford racing gasket kit which came with pretty much every gasket for 90 bucks through Jegs.

Yup, except for machining.

Trans fluid
Coolant
Oil
Power Steering Fluid

If you car is a five speed you might as well get a new throw out bearing too while you have it all apart.

---------- Post added at 03:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:51 PM ----------

Oil pan gasket

Ford 302 roller block that has been bored .030 over to a 306. I was going to use it for a 347 build in my Mustang but decided to go another route. All this block needs is new cam bearings put in it and build whatever you want 306, 331 or a 347.

Or this for 100$

That sounds good but a machine shop will have to do the cam bearings.

Explorer would be better than stock. Oh that article is in the useful mustang info sticky thread.
Studying and researching and multi price checking and repeat a million times is how I do things. That's the best way to know what your getting into.

If you are using stock heads there's not much reason to buy an explorer intake.

It's the small things that count and a lot of them are in there. Organization, clean threads, prepped surfaces, clean parts, keeping bolts organized, etc etc. its all attention to detail. Thats what will help you the most.

Yeah the motor is from a 93 cobra but the guy before me swapped intakes because he had a performance and then he sold the cobra intake so he put a regulare one before I bought it..
