I'm starting to wonder what kind of power could be gotten from the L05, like with a stroker kit (waaaaaaaay down the line). Reading past threads with excellent advice from Ken Rolt and others, as well as what I vaguely remember from the 9C1 mailing list, it seems like the work doesn't gain too much. Vortec heads and manifold (and possibly distributor for clearance issues), Cadillac air "box" with Team SS-type cold air box, B-car LT1 cam, dual or big-single exhaust... all to get to the LT1's power or maybe a bit more.
Sure, it'd probably be cheaper than buying an LT1 car, but how about swapping a RamJet 350? Or what kind of power could one get out of a 383" or 396" L05? Any opinions?
