the Butler boys, hands down, are some of the most awesome and helpfull folk ive ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

if you really want a stroker kit, you can buy it piece by piece.
i have not completed my engine yet. however i have purchased a
Eagle 4.25" stroke rough machined for the pontiac 400.
6.800 Eagle forged H beams.
i went to butler to purchase my ross pistons (good gawd at the .030 clearence between the wrist pin and the oil ring)
ive spent around 1400 dollars so far however i do not have bearings and rings.
im a budget builder, so i had to do it this way. also the eagle crank is unfinished, so a reputable pontiac engine builder is a must.

the only part of ths post that i didnt like, in my unprofessional opinion, was the demon carburator! they make great oil lamps, but i wouldt use one on any of my yacks!
455 blocks are great for towing, but stick to the 400 if you ar going for power.

HEI distributors??? i dont trust those ICM's but the HEI makes a great shell for a MSD 6 AL
