    Im building my first Chrysler/Stroker Engine.
    Im looking for direction on my build. This is just gonna be a street car to cruise and have fun. This is what I have so far

    70 Plymouth Duster-Full interior
    68 340 .030 over
    Molnar steel 4.0" stroke crank
    Molnar H beam rods
    Ross -22cc dished piston. advertised 10-1
    Edelbrock heads (from Indy cyl)-360 performer 2.02x1.60 .509 lift spring 63cc
    3.55 sure grip 489
    Manual steering/Manual 4 wd brakes
    28" mickey drag radials, mini tubbed
    904 Reverse VB

    Im trying to figure out the best cam/intake/converter. Looking more for lower end power rather than top end. Probably looking more at hyd cam as the roller setup may be later on in life. I do have a new holley 800 cfm carb and can rejet if needed. Bottom end is fully assembled.

    Thanks for any help!!

    I wouldn't buy anything direct from indy , EVER! If you already have them, have a local shop look over the work, valve job guide sizing.

    The biggest voodoo hyd cam or similar, ede air gap and a good converter (not shelf junk) in the 3500 range.

    This is a good starting point for what you have and what you want. I would also run a performer RPM air gap. 2,500 to 3,000 converter. I have built this set up many time and work great on street cars. Voodoo cams work very well and best bang for your buck hands down. http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=1546&gid=287

    Here is a mag article that I wrote a while back. I used a fairly small 236 duration cam in this 340 stroker since it was a street driven road race car. We also used a 650 DP carb. This car was a monster! It pushed that Valiant up to roughly 160 mph. Never took it to the drags but it would probably run 10's with slicks and gears. I think the car had 2.94 gears so we had to keep the cam and carb fairly small.

    LOL! @ AndyF! I remember that article. I thought that was pretty good considering the small cam and big out put. It would take a bit more cam in a stock stroke to get to 500/500. It's nice to see and read that it doesn't take a whole lot of cam with a striker and good heads to make good power.

    Dave-O! There's a few engine builders here and a number of hot street guys and racers that have gone this far with there strokers. In the racers section there are stickies on what it takes to go "XX" in the 1/4. There broken down into time zones. Take a peak over there and see what others did to do it. You might find something you like.
