I'm done with the 331 saga! I've said that 7 engine pulls now LOL! It's costing me $700 in bearings, gaskets, and head resurfacing to get that turd in one piece again with no guarantees it will work out. So I gave Woody a call this afternoon to get in line, an 8 month or more line for a Dart block based stroker. We talked about options and I was leaning toward the 3.25 stroke big bore 347 but Woody, who is not shy about sharing his opinion said he would build whatever I want but saw no reason not to do the 3.40 stroke 363 because torque makes people happy and why not be as happy as you can be, "paraphrased" I hate the 70+lb weight penalty that the Dart block brings but it is what it is unless I win the lottery and go aluminum. Woody's short blocks are $5200 but I probably have double that in my current turd. The only thing that concerns me about the big bore is the limited room between the bores and potential head gasket failure.
