Stroker 305

Okay, I need information on where I could find a kit for a 305. And would a stroker be good for a truck? Give me some advice, if you have any... THanks.

Re: Stroker 305

I don't know, but i need one too. I have a 305 in a 93 chevy stepside, and i'm embarrassed to even think about racing anyone. It looks great and sounds good, but i could kick a can around faster than it will go. I have a spacer plate but that is all i've done to it... help

Re: Stroker 305

Why mess with a 305? You would be money ahead if you found a 350 to rebuild and stroke, plus 50 extra CID. More displacement = more power. IMHO, the 305 was a big mistake for chevy. They tried to get better milage with a smaller engine, and not lose much torque with the 3.48 inch stroke ( same as the 350 ). Chevy was wrong on both counts, the 305 is an absolute loser.

Thanks, Ray

Your right, 305's absolutely suck! allthough one of my friends has a 98 2wd 305 vortec, all he has done to it is chop off the cat. converter, and that thing will go balls out! they must have made that one special er something.

You would be way ahead by just putting your money into a 350.The end result would be much more power for little more investment.

Re: Stroker 305


If you want a stroker kit for a 305. Super Chevy Magazine did one, and put it in their giveaway car about 6 months back. I think it was 335 ci. At the same time, I must agree with everyone else here. 350's are a dime a dozen, with endless buildup possibilities. From 383 strokers, to 355's, to even a bolt on performance 350. I've build a 94' 350 TBI motor that puts out 310hp, with the stock TBI heads! I think I've got maybe 2 grand into it. If you're looking for a donor motor, look for a 350 from a late 80's or early 90's camaro or firebird. NOT THE LT-1. The motors came with a roller cam, and the parts were interchargeable with most everything up to that point. I say not to go to the LT-1 because they are $$$$. Goood luck.

Re: Stroker 305

How much would that cost?
The 305 is pretty much free for me. I haven't seen to many deals on a 350 that can beat that. But the only other engine is a disassembled 396 with a 10:1 compression ratio. So I dont want to be buying Premium gas all of the time.

Re: Stroker 305

<font color=purple>I think the point to make here is that you could bore & stroke a 305 to 335", but it would cost you more in parts & machine work (not to mention assembly cost if you can't do it yourself) than just buying a complete 350. There's no real reason to stroke a 305, since it already has too small of a bore for the current stroke of 3.48". My advice is if you're in a budget situation & can get a 305 pretty much for free, is to take it, install it, & start saving for a 350. Hopefully, the 305 will then last until you've saved up for something bigger. And who knows - you may find the 305 suits your needs for the time being just fine.</font color=purple>
