Imo its more abuse and high rpm.. 50 ounce external ballance doesn't help..
There is a way around this now!! Thats to fit the latest stroker kits with Zero ballance but you need different harmonic ballancer and fly wheel.Is that another excuse to stroke ???
Btw I prefere the 330 with 5.4 rod over 347....

The guys in the Stock 5.0 class in the states are pulling over 9000rpm - but you are talking grout filled blocks and other trick bits. Most of them are stepping up into Dart blocks.
