Default Thoughts On eagles Stuff?

How many of you would use a eagle stroker kit for a big block chevy? Scott out of new york sells the stroker kit for $1,895.00 and was wondering if any of you wouldn't run this kit and why not? I'm going out of town tomorrow so I need to make a choice today. Thanks,Bill

Get the good rod bolts L-19's and your good to go. Seen them in 1500hp motors. I have a eagle setup in my 582 and yet to have a failure with eagle (knock on wood).

Thanks for the info.. I was on EAGLES web-site and they sell their own stroker kit for more than SCOTT.S out of new york does?

I have had two different with motors (a 469 & a 540) with 4340 Eagle rods and crank with no problems. I did the same thing that Hammer suggested to you and upgraded to the L-19 rod bolts.

Another question? What do you think the hp difference would be between a 10.5.1 (540) compared to say a 13.1-14.1(540)?? Money is tight so I only want to do this once! Thanks,Bill
