I have a 69 mach 1 that Im currently restoring and want to rebuild the 351w in it. It runs now but seems tired and smokes after a while. I am planning to do a stroker but need help from the pro's and want it to be reliable for the weekend cruises. My q's:

1. Shold I but a stoker "kit" for this block or buy a shortblock already built?

2. Where's the best place to buy the kit or shortblock?

3. I plan on using AFR heads but which one's?

4. What cam size? I want it to be streetable.

5. 393 or 408 for reliability?

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

I would prefer a 393, a little more piston stability, and less piston speed at higher rpm. Any of the afr heads will work, i would opt for 185cc and up. Don't be afraid of using the 225cc, they are not too big and would make a crap load of power.

If you want a streetable cam, keep the advertised duartion down and the lobe seperation somewhat wide like 110 or 112.

I would try to come up with a assembly that produces .035-.045 quench area.
