351W Stroker Kits
It's nearly impossible for us to believe that you can almost stuff a 430 ci into a 351 Windsor small-block. Just imagine, big-block power from an engine the size and weight of a 351W. It gets us excited too. You can keep your '69 Mach 1 looking dead stock outside, while breathing big-block cubes inside. Just imagine the bewilderment your buddy in the Camaro is going to feel when you spank his 350ci RS/SS, while going through the traps Saturday night. This is the beauty of a stealthy stroker.
