bubbahotep If you have headers or plan to get them then the high torque are usually the best option for clearance and heat resistance. Overall you do get what you pay for so the high torques are usually an easier and quicker start because they really turn the motor

tomget I guess that all depends. I have both starters on different cars. And one--my 485hp Ford 460 had a real hard time turning over --especially when warm--even though the starter solenoid is away from heat and I was using a heat temp protective blanket on the starter itself etc--so I went with one of the lesser expensive JEgs units and now-and for a couple years-- it works great. No more hesitation in turning over the motor no matter the heat.

And in another I'm running a Chevy 350 OEM horse power and have used the OEM starter for a decade and never had any issues with the starter.

So I guess you might try the OEM starter--if you have it--and if you see issues then go and buy the hi torque. For my money in general I've not seen a down side to these hi torque units.

In my 460 Ford 10.5 compression I went with the Jegs Ford V8 Pro Start'R #1008, but probably any appropriate good brand name is just as good.

starter question

Have a 300 HP Chevy. Should I go with hi-torque mini starter for weight savings and the torque, or should I just use a regular chevy starter?

Opinions for each. Pros and Cons

Thanks guys
