I see that Speed-o-Motive offers these stroker kits but I have heard "stories" about their quality.
With the 400 unless the roller cam is a "must", using a flat tappet will solve the problems w/the cam.
To run the reluctor wheel will require a shortened snout on the 400 balancer and the use of a Vortec-type plastic timing cover.
Decide on the induction, configure the ECM to match the combo. Gas it up and go.
