Currently I have a 428 with 10.6 comp Ebrock slightly ported heads, Harland Sharpe roller rockers, Blue thunder intake, Holley 850 dbl pumper, tri Y headers, comp cams 292H cam with 244/244 @.050 .56/.56 lift 110 lobe sep.
I am looking at 427 sideoiler stroked with a 428 crank using arias 10.5 pistons. It is sleeved and bored .010 over. It would come with MR heads with larger valves. I was considering using my combination with the short block and changing cam.
Not sure if there will be enough of a power increase. I have heard of the power of a stroked 427 but haven't experienced it first hand.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

there would be a power increase if the Edelbrock heads are stock... not much and probably not worth the extra expense... all it'd be in effect is a .100" overbored 428. ll things equal you'll gain 20 lbs/ft of torque. I'd say the Edelbrock heads are the better choice of those two.... more potential for porting and gains.

The only thing better than cubic inches is...
MORE CUBIC NCHES! 454 FE's run very well with the right camshaft.
