stroked 305

yes a 334 or stroked 305 is a very high torque lower reving small block, they are supposed to produce quite a bit more torque than a 350 because of the small bore and long stroke. I would be interested to see how one runs!

Try emailing this website. I am sure they can give you the dyno figures. They sell the 334 stroker.

Low reving, lots of torque? Sounds like sumthin u'd want in at hey hauler or tractor pull... Just my 2 cents. (Which is less and less gas every day)

But would be intrested in what ever info you find... (future mods to my 305 )

Same here. I have a 1986 Monte Carlo SS with 208k miles that is less than exciting at full throttle!

Yeah I think I've got my 305 tuned the best its gonna get without spending any money on it... Just recently got my secondaries working right on the carb.. It was a little exciting for a while.. But not so much any more.. My 1/4 mile trap speed is usually between 75 - 85 mph... Low to mid 18's...

No the stroked 334 will not make more torque than a 350. All other things being equal, torque is directly related to engine displacment. The power range may be a little different, but the power output will always be higher on the larger displacment engine IF everything else is the same.

No the stroked 334 will not make more torque than a 350. is a B.S. unresearched comment because you can't have everything the same, 305 heads have to be modified (thus changing them) to fit the bore of a 350, so how are you compairing? only 16c.i. difference, you honestly think you can't make the same power if not more? the 334 has the same stroke as a 383 just a smaller bore.

After 5yrs he's still correct. LOL! The tiny 305 bore just won't breath. Kinda like me after a pack of cigarettes. LOL!

Whoa! The lowly 305 is not all that bad. One of the mag's just did a 305 with GM Fast Burn heads, single plane 4bbl, stock pistons and a 230ish flat tappet cam. It made 393 HP / 364 TQ for less than $2500. That's not too shabby for a hunk of junk, IMO. I have built dozens of 305's w/std stroke and made good power - for a 305. I think people have stuck it in their heads that these motors are flat out junk. They are not. They are not a 350. They will not make what a 350 does, just as a 396 will not make what a 454 will.

That's all well and good, but if you want to compare apples to apples (similar compression and valve/runner sizes) you're going to get more torque from more cubes. BTW, what research do you have to prove that a 334 will out torque a 350? What kind of a blanket statement is that, you haven't even told us anything about the two motors other than cubic inches. To me, THAT is a BS, unresearched, unproven statement.

"Whoa! The lowly 305 is not all that bad. "

I agree with that statement 100%, I think the problem is perception, 305's never were anything but a less expensive low perf V-8 option. But that doesn't mean you can't make some power with them...I mean it has 8 cylinders...why not?

I think the 305 may have something of a comeback with gas prices over 4 bucks a gallon now.............

Throw in some flat tops (or dish) and a decent set of those oh so lowly heads, a dual plane intake and a 214-218*/.450-480 cam with a 600 carb and it'll keep running and running and running... The good thing about them is they don't make so much power that they break parts, and you can literally beat on them for years.

Something else to address...the 305 is one of the newer thin-wall castings. Put one up against a 350 or 327 block and you will see how much thinner the main bearing webbing is on the 305. Not only is this a weakness, but do a sonic check on the cylinder walls; they are quite thin.

For a milder motor, it's probably OK; but if I wanted something more racey, I'd build a 301 out of a 283, or a 339 out of a 327. Either of these can be radical, made to scream, and will live.
