Pretty hard to compare those don't you think?
Is a 406 stroker that unheard of on this forum?
That's ridiculous. It's all in the build where power comes in, other than obvious benefits of a few more inches from the 400. Don't believe everything you read in magazines.
Again, you aren't talking stroker with the last statement, you're talking about a .030 over 400.
You're not being "torn apart", not even close, if you were, you'd know it. Lighten up.
