fired it up last night. The rebuilder was kind enough to come to my house and help get it going. Of course I can't run it hard during break in, but I wasn't disappointed by the performance. The first things I noticed were no more stumble during transition from idle, and a whole lot more torque. I'll list the parts in detail for those who might be interested when I finally get the itemized receipt from the builder.

Did you use your original Boss block? Also, did you go with a 331, or a 347 kit?

NOW this is what I call the BEST of both worlds!!!! Vintage muscle car, with todays cojones!!!!

And...even the most snibbly purist can't tell you've picked up some cubic inches and the extra ponies and torque that a stroker can provide....

Also...you have made the huge ports of the boss heads and intake more usable with the extra cubic inches......this is why you feel more torque now....

It is a pretty car, you should be proud!!!

by the way i'm almost at 400 posts now....

It was stroked to 347. It has a deeper and louder tone with the extra cu. on the Dynomax Super T's. I used my #'s match block and original heads and valve train (with new valves and seats, of course). The cam is hydraulic roller. It still has the correct exhaust manifolds, but I plan to get headers. I know these kinds of mods are sacrilage to Boss purists, but I couldn't resist. Thanks for all your kind comments!
