Yeah, you caught me it is a 4.030" bore for a 408. rod length doesn't matter.

You can get 408 strokers with all sorts of different rods, the difference is made up in the piston pin height.

Powerglides are nice, they last the longest if your car is under 3000 lbs.

two gears and sloppy converter, don't make for much fun on the street though.

i know thats what i hate about them,this car will see alot of street time though but as a toy not reliable transportation and it will be getting a very healthy dose of nitrous.
