I have been researching the hell out of stroker kits for my 289. I am down to a bare block and need new pistons and rods anyways so figured, what the hell. My only concern is longevity. How many miles are on your stroker? Have you had any issues that you probably wouldn't have had if you didn't stroke. Just trying to get the final "kick in the butt" encouragement to order the kit.(Hopefully today or tomorrow). I am going 347 if you haven't seen my previous posts.
