Strokers and not many mods dont equate.

Just get a 351 rotating assembly and stroke it that way if budget is tight, and a good 351 is plenty.

Any stroker is going to have about the same level of modification. I am currently putting a 383 stroker in mine and a mate is doing a 408. I am using a RPM kit from ebay and as far as I can tell it has scat rods, scat crank, and probe pistons.

The kit was cheap but it needed further balancing, machining and the killer was in the rings. Imperial pistons with metric rings! So all in all I could have bought a full kit through rocket for only slightly more.

IMO it would be a good idea to get the sizes checked on the crank nomatter what you buy.
