    Edelbrock 351w top end kit vs 408 stroker, or both?

    i had wondered about the intake that they offered in the top end kit and if it would be too tall for the nasa hood, Edelbrock also makes a clevor top end kit that isn't much more, and the larger valves may really accentuate the strokers need to breathe...

    Edelbrock 351w top end kit vs 408 stroker, or both?

    now that would be fun, I do have a Mercedes 300E that even for a 4 door, handles the twisty stuff really well, and is quite quick, but there's just something about the nasty American V8 rumble that even the best European cars cant touch! Even if it will never handle like a BMW M3 or a Porsche...

    Not the same, but it is. I have a jeep Cherokee wheeler, I had a similar loud clunk from the rear, I thought it was a u joint, changed them with no improvement. Mine is spooled in the back, so no spiders or locker to wear out. after much pondering and frustration i determined, after flexing...

    to 460 or not?

    I'm wondering if its worth doing the swap, i know a 408 with aluminum goodies should make 500HP pretty easy, what kind of power should i expect out of a 460 with similar treatment and money spent? Also I was planning on running a t-5 or 6 speed in place of the FMX for more fun and better...
