Has anyone noticed that 302/347 street stroker kits are readily available for around $1200 now!! This includes everything but main gurdles and balancing.. This could easily create a 400hp/400ft-lb sleeper 302 Mustang.

For longevity, stick with a 331. 347ci is just too much for a standard 302 block. The pistons are too short and the pin is up in the oil ring. These engines typically burn oil and don't last all that long. You'll be much happier with the 3.25" stroke 331.

Good Luck!

These guys say that they have remedied the oil-usage problem and improved the rod-to-stroke ratio at the same time..

For a street motor I agree. But I have seen several race motors with the pin WAY up in the oil ring that dont burn oil and run extremely hard. There is one guy I know of with a 347 in a 86 mustang, it is a street car that he drives to work regularly. It has aluminum World Products heads, a solid roller, a carb on a Victor Jr and flat tops. It runs 10.90's with slicks and the mufflers uncorked.
Although I know of another fellow racer with a 347 in a race only car, that is having problems with the main caps walking even with the main girdle.

Kid, do you know which company he got the 347 kit from? I've been looking at strokers to go in my 79 after I put my original 302 aside... just wondering which ones might be more reliable (or just stick with the 331). Thanks!

Actually, I only see both guys a couple of times a year, and I have never asked them.

Hey Kid, I heard you met my buddy with the silver pinto at Cordova, and if that is the race car you are talking about with the 347 it's a probe kit. Roger

My stroker kit came from Kuntz & Co. Same people that do Alex's work. Kuntz gathers the best parts and then does all the balancing work. P.S. You won't get a real good kit for $1200.

As some of you may know I just got my Probe 347 finished up about a month ago. I don't have enough time on it yet to provide meaningful feedback but so far it runs great. I haven't been on it all that hard because the fuel injection has been acting up and I broke something in the clutch. I'll be sure to report as gather some info.

I'll be at Eddyville. I had a pretty disastrous weekend points wise and need to try and make up some of the ground I lost.

I have run across a vendor that is selling Ford stroker kits starting at $825 for a 331 and $845 for a 347.
Does anyone have experience with these guys, and do you think the kits components are any good?

Here is the link to the website.

They are literally right down the street from my house (about 3 miles). I ran across their website last year and nobody I talked to around here had ever even heard of them so I dont know . Notice that their cranks are for the 28 oz imbalance not the late model 50 oz.

Yep Ed, thats the one.

The inner fenders already both have holes and 6" hoses to the underside of the bumper... there have been a few different blowers on it, using left and right side mountings.

You wouldn't want the 50oz imbalance if you had a choice, it was done for cost savings and lightweight stock parts. Internal balance would be best. Offset counterweights on the damper and flywheel are going to be harder on bearings.

Tim,

I actually had mine balanced to 28oz as well. I didn't want to have the flywheel rebalanced and I didn't lose anything going that route.

I'm just thinking about us late model guys with our 50 oz imbalance flywheels/flexplates . I know that the 28 oz is actually better for higher revving engines.

"late model guys"?

I think its a good thing that you young whippersnappers have that 50oz imbalance. Keeps you from getting hurt until you have more driving experience

I saw pmeracing at Pleasanton swap meet a few months ago. They had some cool stuff...alumimum radiators, reusable valve cover gaskets, and some trick valve covers. The owner wasn't there just a lady who called on her walkie-talkie to some guy about all the questions I had. I couldn't wait for him to show so I left. I took a flyer and at the bottom it says "Leonard Albert Auto Parts"....no address just a P.O. box. I asked if they were going to be at the next show and she didn't know...I think the radiator was only like $165...didn't look as good as the Griffin ones but still pretty good.

Two things: 1) You get what you pay for so buyer beware. 2) The only thing better than cubic inches is MORE CUBIC INCHES!
