    Whats the deal with these?
    stock bore, just all in the stroke?
    Anyone have the rod, and crank specs for this?
    Probably alot of piston skirt clearancing for this, correct?
    seems cool, seems like it would be more relible with a stock block than boring, what's your take on it??? thanks

    I'm running a 342 stroker because I bought a new block. Its all the same as any other stroker just with standard bore. Allows for more room for rebuilding. Also, the clearancing shouldnt be any different.

    When I bought my 347 short block from CHP, they told me they prefer to bore over size to ensure proper dimensions. They said they have seen new blocks come with the cylinders out of spec. So they also bore using a torque block.
