    Hi All
    Wanting to build a strong 340 with 500-650hp.
    What would be the best way to achieve these numbers, but still being streetable.
    Stroker??.
    Car is a stick shift A833.
    Thanks
    Al.

    You need a killer bottom end
    you could do it with a stock block well balanced stroker , or if you really want to build a killer small block use an R3 block if you can find one or the Ritter block , both will handle 800 hp both have 6 bolt / cylinder provision for better sealing & you can use a number of better 6 bolt heads , , W7,8,9 for example .
    The Ritter block is a tough build , the block is very raw & will require a lot of massaging to assemble

    Will be doing a full build on the Ritter 59 when i receive.
    4" stroke it uses chev size bores comes out about 434 Cu
    Using Edelbrock victor heads (Another problem) the inner bolt holes are tapped up from the bottom like a Hemi rather than bolted down from the top of the head.
    Supposed to be ready for pickup a few weeks ago Kent said he has been extremely ill .
    Also said he dynoed a twin turbo 48 degree block build & come up with 1682 hp not sure on the torque.

    Do you have any kind of budget in mind or is this just for conversation ?

    More for us than him. Me thinks any person who asks how to make silly numbers has no clue, experience, ability, or funds.
