383 Stroker setup questions

I know that when building a stroker engine, you shouldnt skimp out on parts just to save some money, but I will be wanting to build a stroker engine without spending all my money (Gotta have some $ for other stuff...what good is 400HP or whatever i'll end up with if i've got a transmission and rear end that wont hold up to that? lol)
I see this setup on eBay all the time for under 600 bucks, and want to know why kits from Summit cost twice this much....
For 525 bucks you get:
SILVOLITE CLAIMER PISTONS H3426
HASTINGS MOLY RINGS 2M139
CLEVITE ROD BEARINGS CB663P
CLEVITE MAIN BEARINGS MS909P
MELLING HI-VOLUME OIL PUMP M55HV
FEL-PRO PERFORMANCE GASKET SET 92600
PBM PERFORMANCE CAMSHAFT 290/300 222/231 .468 .480 110 LOBE

PBM PERFORMANCE LIFTER HA817
DURA-BOND CAM BEARINGS CH8
PIONEER BRASS EXPANSION PLUG PE100B
PBM PERFORMANCE DOUBLE ROW 3 KEYWAY TIMING SET 700
PBM PERFORMANCE HYDRAULIC VALVE SPRINGS 3000 (1.250 OD 110#@1.700 300#@1.250 .500 LIFT)
PBM PERFORMANCE CHROME MOLY RETAINERS 501S
PBM PERFORMANCE 7 DEGREE HD KEEPERS
PBM PERFORMANCE CRANKSHAFT 3.750 STROKE CAST STEEL 2 PIECE SEAL (MADE BY SCAT CRANK)


Most of the parts are made by companies that i've heard of and seem to be pretty good, but PBM i've never heard of.....
Does that setup sound decent? Would it be able to hold up to maybe a supercharger later on? Thanks

PBM is a very good supply house! I buy from them on a regular basis. Very good stuff, mostly the same stuff that Jegs or Summit sells. They are a wholesaler so the markup on parts is less.
When will you guys learn that most of engine hard parts are made by the same manufacturers and just re-boxed!

Well I would sorta assume that the cheaper stuff is just renamed and maybe a little out-dated stuff from other companies.........
So that setup wouldnt be bad?

yeah, i'd probably want a bigger cam anyway....but thats what comes with the kit...could resell it on eBay and get a little $, then go with Comp-Cams or Crane Cams or Edelbrock or whatever....
I would want pretty much the biggest cam that would be within a reasonable range for the setup cause i would rather give up 2 or 3 HP for...you know the sound....haha

I ordered the 383 eagle kit from jegs, It comes balanced, with damper and fly wheel, with bearings.My machinest said it all looks good, but he is going to do another balance job, he goes to + - .5 grams. I gave him the balance sheet that came with the kit for comparison, he is going to see how accurate they are. The kit was just under a grand shipped to my door.

I say stick with a 350 bottom and spend your money on heads and intake. Just a thought in my experience thats where the power is, just my opinion.

yeah well i hope to only have the engine out of the car once for at least a few years, so i'd rather upgrade the internal stuff like that now, and then as i get more $ upgrade things that I dont need to tear the whole engine apart for.......

stroker reply

HI AGAIN PENGUIN

IF YOU LOOK IN SUMMIT AND OR JEGS AND PAW...YOU WILL FIND A GOOD --STRONG STROKER 383 - CRANK---FOR ABOUT 285$----IN FACT I SAW ONE IN THERE IN--SUMMITS SPRING CLEARENCE SALE IN 03----FOR JUST THAT PRICE....OR SOMETIMES LESS---

WHILE YOUR TOP END IS NEARLY EVERYTHING---FOR SURE-AS SINGLETONCAMERO69--TELLS YOU

IT'S ALL THAT MUCH BETTER STARTING WITH THE STROKER CRANK---AND EVERYONE WILL TELL YOU THIS.....AND ALSO SCAT CRANKS ARE GOOD AN STRONG

BEST OF LUCK....

Well to do a proper stroker engine you need more than just a 383 crankshaft, no?
you need rods at least, right?
What is required for a stroker setup?

You need the longer strokecrank, correct pistons, clearance block, proper flexplate/flywheel and proper balacner. You can keep the 5.7" rods from the 350

Nothing wrong with the PBM stuff, I use to work for them years ago.

Hey, Bob, what is the name of your shop? We may have spoke years back.
