Don't they kind of contradict each other. How much does it cost to get 514 CI?
About $2000 for a drop in kit.

New 4340 forged steel 4340 crankshaft, Standard weight, 2pc rear main seal
New 4340 forged steel H beam connecting rods with ARP 8740 7/16 rod bolts
New JE 2618 forged pistons, with wrist pins and spirol locks
New Performance Ductile Iron Plasma-moly piston ring set
New Clevite 77 / ACL rod and main bearing set.

little cheaper if you go with an offset ground factory cast crank and source rods, pistons from various builders. Not much of a price difference from a standard rebuilder kit to a stroker kit.

A 514" is an economical stroker build with tons of torque. Re-use your stock crank and have it offset ground, add a set of off the shelf pistons and rods, a 514" is born. For close to the same price a guy could cheat and drop in a 557" kit, no machining required other than cylinder boring.
