So I'm really stuck between building a 408 stroker or a 365. The machine shop estimated about 2000 to hot tank my block, bore my 360 block .30 over, deck the block, new 9:1 pistons and file fit rings, new frost plugs installed, flex plate, turning stock crank and balancing it. New bearings (mains and cam bearings) basically everything to get the motor running nicely with mostly stock bottom end. But a family member just asked my why I wouldn't go with a 408 stroker, and now I'm having trouble deciding. I've found some kits that are balanced and ready to go for 12-1500 bucks. I know that I still have to have block work done. But if I go with a stroker I will not have to have any balancing or work done on my crank, and because the stroker crank hasn't been turned I have bearings for it already. When it's all said and done how much more would it cost for the stroker kit? Is it worth it? I'm on a fairly tight budget so I don't really want to spend much more than the 2000 ish that Im already expecting to pay.
