    Why not try to find a 328 crank?

    It's the 'Poor Man's Stroker' crank, and all that it would cost you would be the crank itself since you are ordering new pistons anyway.

    Finished measuring all the cylinder liners today, all within spec for I.D., and ovality, whew! Will need to order an aluminum oxide hone from Goodson. Back to scraping gaskets, boy does that suck, can't wait for reassembly!

    So Holidays almost over, so here is an update.
    Ordered JE pistons, 10:1, no delivery date yet. New steel liners from Superperformance, should be here next week. Complete engine/head gasket kit, next week delivery. Destra head cleaning is complete prior to delivery to machine shop for a .003 skim. Valve guides well within spec, no issues will leave in place. Valves also in spec, will be soda blasting next week. When head is done will lap valves. Need to check springs also. Sinestra head is still being cleaned, I freaking hate scraping gaskets!!!! Block had it's first cleaning the other day, can't figure out how to get the cam drive inner bearings out. Thats it for now.

    Cleaning exhaust valves!!
    It sucks, doing them on the lathe with paper, and polish.
    Contacted Forza for a quote on their timing system, and the JE pistons have shipped, yeah!
