Will be rebuilding my 460 and will be upgrading btm end. Looking in the 4.3 stroke or less. My truck gets driven on highway often for long distance so no big stroke engines. What's good what's bad is the question? Will
Be heavy truck 4wd application on 40" tires.

cparks is starting off with a positive reputation.
Building a 521 for my truck project. 4.3 is a good stroke amount and you are correct would not want 4.5 for the street. You might still be able to find some deals on the old Ford kits, otherwise the SCAT type are good with the Chevy rod size. FYI 514 is standard bore and 521 is 30 over.

Make any decisions yet? I would like to pull my 460 and stroke this winter also using a 4.3 stroke kit. I think it will be the most bang for the buck at this altitude. Let me know how it turns out and if you used J Team.
