Stroker Kit FE 390, 428 or 445 ? yr thoughts pls

Moving on with mods to the 390 heads,intake, carby cam, now thinking of going "whole hog" with a stroker. Appear to be lots out there-looking for good street perfomance for my "Leadsled" (As another TBird owner described em ! )
Cheers from Downunder,
Johann(horn)

Don't know for sure what this engine is headed for, if this is a street driven T-Bird yes it could use the inches provided by the 445 stroker kit. This adds a lot of torque from the bottom end through mid range RPMs. Just keep in mind that the FE isn't a high winding engine to start with and a 4.25 inch stroke is not going to improve that aspect of this engine.
