4.3l stroker!, 320hp,torque,350

This is a sweet motor. You can keep your 4.3L and have more power that a 350 vortec! With the same weight!http://www.speedomotive.com/4.3%20ch...t%20master.htm With that much power with a 4.3L is insane!

I bought their stroker kit for mine and am still having it assembled. Decided to add a little more bling to it since I got a killer deal on some busch series aluminum heads and intake for it. I'll post up the final numbers for it once it's finished.

www.strokerkits.com has a kit that includes a forged 3.75"-stroke crank. It's spendy but I thought about gettin' it. I still have dreams of building a 302 ci V-6.....

Edit: My mistake, it's a billet crank.

A 4.3 is how much lighter than a SBC?

A 4.3 is basically 3/4 of a SBC so I would have to guess it's about 1/4 lighter.

I thought that'd be too easy, but the list says its so. It also says the 5.0 ford weighs about the same as the 4.3, who'd a thunk?

I am guessing the stock through is 3.46 so to go up only .09 isn't much of a stroker. A 3.75 would be though. I did some looking around for this and found that it just isn't cost effective unless you find the parts used or something. Would be nice though.

You could probably just buy a shortstar and be done for that kind of money. With a turbo, it would be a bad mother!

Dunno if it still available, but there was a GM performance "4.3L" block available for a while that had siamesed bores. IIRC, it was good for 5.2L (326ci?) with a stroker crank.

On the GMPP website, they still sell those blocks and all-aluminum blocks and heads. I guess Brodix used to make heads for the 4.3 but discontinued them. I'm keeping my eyes peeled on Ebay for them, though! Despite the price, I still think it would be cool to have a big-inch V-6 based stroker.
