Has anyone done this? Order the block only as a base and put all your stock parts on it and build up from there over time? It seems like a reasonable plan and idea and the cost is not bad, $4,699 right now not counting core charge of 1k. The stock 5.7 parts should work on this right? I plan on doing the work myself until of course I hit a snag.
Well the money it's going to cost you to stroke this motor you could do a lot of upgrades to the 5.7...the 5.7 is a very good motor any way you look at it. Like stated above, forge it, cam it, and boost it...it will be real fun! But you always need to remember, in order to get that power to the ground you need supporting trans/rear end mods along with suspension...
Oh yeah and nitrous, how could I forget about the nitrous!
But to get back to the original topic of this thread, I don't really know anyone who has upgraded to a 5.7 based 410 motor (sorry, just turbo'd imports and bmw's here in germany)....but I would imagine you would have to be real confident about those cylinder sleeves.
