4.00" But my question is why are they calling it a stroker kit if it has the stock 3.480" stroke?
And a word of advice. Never assume that a mail order rotating assembly is "balanced" regardless of claims. Have a competent machinist who's familiar with performance builds verify it. For good deals on internal components check out cnc-motorsports.com They were the best deal I found for the components I needed when I did my last serious build last year.

Maybe its a stroker kit for a 327 I would be a little leary as it seems they are trying to mislead the buyer. $0.02

Do your homework and determine exactly the parts that you require for your needs. Once you have specific part numbers for the hard parts you want, you are the master. The numbers of companies selling engine parts online is virtually limitless and it's a buyer's market if you shop smart. Good luck and there are plenty of us who will help if we can with any specific questions. Don't nit-pick over a few bucks if a given company can supply you with everything you need at any given stage of your build. And of course use your instincts when communicating with any vendor. If you feel they're giving you the bum's rush, blow them off and look elsewhere. If they're patient and helpful with all of your questions and concerns, that's a good sign. If they're just selling parts and try to blow you off, screw 'em. Communication is everything to me, whether buying online, locally or from an individual.
