Piston question for stroker.

Post  fordguy69 on December 30th 2012, 12:24 am

I have a set of SRP 150723 pistons that I bought before deciding to build a stroker. They are forged flat tops for a .030 over 460 with stock stroke and rods.

Is there any way that I can use these for a stroker build? Would like to do a 4.3" or a 4.5" street engine. If I use the Edelbrock 95cc heads I believe the compression ratio would be livable with pump gas?

I am guessing the skirts may be too long or the wrist pin location would preclude using these?

Yes, your wrist pin location will preclude using those pistons for a stroker build. The only way,,, which is a BAD way,,, to use them with a stroker, is to shorten the rod length from the stock 6.605" length. I'd just sell the pistons and get the proper stoker kit to begin with.
