    Default motor info/help

    I've got to rebuild an SEFI motor in a stock '88 Sport Coupe. I thought while I was at it I might do a 347 stoker. Could I do this an leave the top end stock, stock computer, etc?

    Not really thrilled with the idea of doing another HO swap.

    what’s not thrilling you about doing a HO swap if you pulling the motor that’s the hard part just gotta change the computer. And I’m thinking you would have to change the computer anyway converting to mass air do to the fact of more air going them the 347.

    Won't you make a lot more power redoing the top then if just stroking it? Everything is already choked air wise.

    If youre going 347, you will severely choke that engine with E6 heads and the like.

    Get yourself an A9P or A9L computer, a MAF conversion harness, and build the motor the way you want. Get the MAF and injectors for your combination, and actually be happy with the engine you build.
    It's Gumby's fault.
