Ford 347 Build-Up

I was wondering what it takes to build a 347?I've read about them in 5.0 Mustang Mags and other places,but still don't know very much about it.I pretty much know that it includes a 302 block..That's about it lol.Let me know if anyone knows.If it's not too expensive and worth it,I might build one for my hot rod project .

There are several kits available that include the stroker crank with the rods and pistins. Depending on which kit you get they have various length rods, even Ford offers a kit now. It does require some minor block grinding for clearance.

You can always find 347 stroker kits on EBAY for cheap, check there. 347's make great power.

I know that I'm not experienced with these "Stroker" engines,but what kind of different length strokes can I get?Also,could you give me an example of what I should expect to pay for the block work?I know that you won't know it exactly..But just a round figure or something..If you can.

Just a note...I found a 347 Short Block with a 3.40" stoke from Summit for $2,459.That's a good chunk out of pocket,but I guess worth it if you didn't want to get your hands a little dirty .It's even got the forged crank,pistons,and rods.I guess so for that price .Anyway..Just thought that I'd mention that.
