    I don't know if this should be here or not, but if not I guess it will be moved. Anyway, I'm looking to buy a 383 Stroker kit. There are many out there ranging in price from $400+ on up to over $1k. I'm just looking for a good streetable engine for a '90 K5 I use to tow my camper. I do not need race/dragstrip quality parts here. Can anyone recommend some vendors where I can get a good kit for a good price?

    Try them. A Nodular crank is plenty strong. I might opt for a slightly better rod though.

    Made and machined here, not China. Unless the UPS guy drops it, it will arrive straight....

    I bought my Eagle specialties rotating assembly through summit for my 350 and I noticed they have some reasonable priced 383 kits that come balanced and ready to go.

    Strokermotor.com is a good site, good prices, but never dealt with them before, so can't comment.

    I went to Speed-O-Motive for a stroker crank kit in my 454. Prices were reasonable, I had no trouble assembling the engine, and I have been using the engine for the last three (maybe four?) years with no troubles at all!

    Here's a question then, I have a 90 also and have thought about a stroker kit. What all do I need to upgrade (or address) to maintain the TBI w/ the stroker kit? I'm sure I will need bigger injectors and larger fuel pump, but what other areas will need attention? I am not looking for super high horsepower, just reliable horsepower.

    Fuel pump shouldn't be a problem but larger injectors will be needed and a different chip burned.
