need opinion so ill know about how much money to save up.

Setup A: 351w heads, ported and polished, ported and polished intake, f303 cam, bbk shorty headers, 3.73, locker, and maybe a .060 bore.

Setup B: 347 stroker kit w/ p&p manifold, bbk shorty's, 3.73, and a locker.

Which would i be more satisfied with? and also, what other stuff would i need to go along with either of those setups? would i want to get an f303 cam with the 347 stroker?

sorry bout all the questions but this is a tough decision, anyones opinions/answers will be appreciated. thanks.

I like both of them but i would build a 347 stroker.and also since it semes your on a budget get the trick flow topend kit,30lb injectors,maf meter for injectors,225 lph fuel pump,cai.

Well the trick flow kit is 2500,a stroker kit is gonna run you 800-1000 bucks,machine work lets say 500 for a 0.030 bore thats necessary,and a 0.065 notch in the cylinder skirts,fuel pump 120,cai 150,injectors 380, and im probably forgetting a few things but this is just to give you and idea.then your gonna have to worry about drivetrain.


I would put in a trac lok not a locker if your gonna drive it on the street at all or it will jerk badly,and 3.73's with a manual transmission =love.

exhaust bbk longtubes,h-pipe,flows with dumps.


its not gonna be cheap i would try to save about 8000-10000 at least.

heres a link to a trick flow kit.

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku


If you want to save alot of money just build a 302 with the trick flow kit and other kittle bolt ons.

hope this helps if you need to know just ask ill answer or just pm me

i would go with the 347 or maybe even look at a 331 from DSS about the same power producing but some 347's still have cooling issues if you are using it for a daily driver. And a big reason against the 351 in the taller deck hieght of it, and you are putting it in a SN-95 body wich has a low hood so you would more than likely need a bigger cowl hood than with the "POCKED an STROCKED" 302. But like i am sure we all think they are both real good combos

347's do not have cooling issue if you use a good rad.,water pump,and fan.

I have a 347 and I was wondering which fan and radiator do you recommend? Mine doesnt run too hot, but it is a little warmer than I would like.

thanks guys, i already have an o/r h pipe, flow 40's, and a jlt cai and tri ax shifter. i was plannin on gettin a 3.73 and a locker but im still contemplating leaving it limited slip. which would produce more power, 347, 351, or the top end kit? and would an f303 cam would be a bad idea? i found 351 ford racing aluminum z heads on jegs for about 650 a piece, are these good heads or do you guys recommend anything else? thanks for the help.

I would build a 347 and use the trick flow top end kit it comes with everything,and stay a way from the alphabet cams if you can there ok for mild budget builds.But if your just wanting tio stroke the motor and not do anything else then i say just the top end kit.

Is there another radiator that you would recommend that is a little more wallet friendly?

ok i looked at the trickflow topend kit. i like it, but how much more would i be looking at to do the 351w versus the 347 stroker, and what would be the upside to the 351w or the 347? also, i found a complete 347 stroker kit from www.fordstrokers.com for 1200 bucks w/ 20.1cc dish pistons, h-beam rod upgrade, and 4.040 bore, and the pistons and rods are forged, that seemed like a good deal, anyone know anything bout that?

You dont need 20.1 cc dished pistons or h beams 0r a 4.040 bore,I woud just buy a 347 stroker kit with flat tops,i beam rods and a cast crank, and a 4.030 bore.A 351 is gonna cost you a good amount of money to build.

with the trick flow kit it should make around 380 at the flywheel,and then you need to worry about the trans handling all that power,its all in how you build it they both have great power potential.

I think the 347 stroker is the better choice simply because it'll fit under the stock hood and it'll cost a lot less money to build. What result are you looking for? Horsepower? Torque? At what rpm would you like maximum HP and TQ to come at? Is the vehicle going to see only street use, or will it be visiting the track frequently? All these considerations will dictate what's the best engine combination for you, so decide what you want and I'll come up with a plan for you.
