Just ordered my stroker kit!

Well, i've gone to the point of no return. I finally ordered my 545 kit!

I gave Barry over at Survival Motorsports a call, and was on the phone with him for about 20 minutes. Nice guy, very knowledgeable and helpful! After much discussion, I settled on the 545 kit. Dished Diamond pistons, scat forged/balenced rotating assembly, and most likely the 6.8 rods.

Stay tuned, this is going to be a monster. Next up is the P51 heads, and machine work!

Thanks Ed.

Your advice has played a big part in helping me prepare for this serious undertaking. I'd also like to thank the people of this site for all the information i've learned! Just searching, lurking, and reading the stickies has given me all sorts of great information!!

Here is the bell you need Tom.... Sell your Lakewood and buy this.... It has universal fork brackets... Solves all of your problems... It is only $100 or so more than your adapter plate is going to cost....

Way to go Tom! You'll have me by 24 cubes. I had a great experience with Barry on my kit too. Just like Lem, the phone support was/is superior. 8)

I just Called Scott at RHP and got a set of ported P-51 heads, XR298R cam, and Kaase rocker stud girdle on the way.

Great guy to do business with, thanks Scott!!

And now, my pocketbook recovers...
