All I did was convert my automatic to a 5 speed, rebuilt the 2.8 - stroked it to a 3.2 and put 17" wheels and tires on it.

That is it.

Isn't the 2.8 the same as the 3.1 and the 3.4? If so, why not go all the way to 3.4?

I only had it for a few weeks before I tore it apart. Then it sat for over a year due to having no money. When I finally got it going it ran great but I don't know what the comparison would be. It seemed pretty quick and I could beat my friend who had one with a stock 2.8.

Fastest I had it was about 115 based on tach reading since the speedo only went to 85.

They are the same block and possibly heads but the bore and stroke are obviously different.

Why not go to a 3.4? The stroker kit was a lot more money, and you need to get the block sonic tested for wall thickness.

It depends on which kit you go with. There are really only two kits. V8 Archies and another one I can't think of.

Archies kit balances the v8 better in the car, but your waterpump is running inside your wheelwell instead of the engine compartment. The other kit moves the engine over and lets the waterpump stay inside the engine compartment, but the weight distribution is off.

Yes. You can just buy a crate 3.4 and call it done.

My pal Dave has one with a 350 vette engine in it. he didn't get it out of warranty back in `82 before ripping the turd 4 banger out and tossing it. he has the kit that offsets the engine and trans over to clear the frame rail on the pulley side. I remember cause he said he had to change the shafts going to the wheels
