I would agree with F-bird. You can now get stroker cranks for around 2 bills but the rods(cause you don't want to run the short 400 rods) , pistons, balancer and flex plate will be a $1000 plus little stuff. So the $200 crank is just the beginning. Yes, there is no substitute for cubes but those cubes cost $$$$. Vortec heads will work well up to about 400-450 real hp. If you get bored with that you can spray another couple hundred. Spend your money on slicks. But thats just me. Next time your at the track ask the small block racers in your class what crank they run. I'll bet the 355 are in the zone. Good luck and let us know how it works.
