    496 stroker

    I am pretty new to big block chevy's, "always ran small blocks". So here it is. I am having a 427 tall deck/truck block 10.2'' built into a 496 stroker. I have an Eagle rotating assembly, ballanced and all forged with 17cc. pistons, forged. My application is 4x4 offroad use in a chevy truck with 40'' tires, Im looking for big H/P within 2000-5000 RPM. My question is with heads, and what brand. 118cc. chambers give me 10.1 compresion and 124 chambers will be 9.4. I want a gut shot between the two and want aluminum. however the intake runner size has me confused I'm thinking 300-325? With a dual plane intake?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks: Seth

    A dart 320 would be a good choice.

    310 Dart, or AFR 305 would be good with the dual Plane intake. Will build incredible torque at lower RPM.

    IMO AFR 265, Brodix 270 or Dart 270 oval ports would be a good choice. That build sounds like you need lots of TQ in the 2000-5000 range.
