Frankly I would just buy a short block 419 from Livernois and be done with it, by the time you add all those parts together and the machining and such on your old block which can only be overhoned .020..... the five grand for a full forged stroked new block is cheap unless your the machinist. Just IMO..... and you can get the pistons for the right compression right off the bat, and the deal is you will gain torque, not just a rebuild. Then you can sell off your stocker. Be sure to get rings for boost along with the pistons, no ones going check everything for you on your parts list, you are your only person watching your back. Good Luck. BTW I use racetec http://racetecpistons.com/
and used Molnar whose "names" are so varied..as in wiseco etc....callies etc..... http://www.molnartechnologies.com/ The deal is I knew these guys decades ago by many names, the Racetec...yup its in Hunnington beach and the Guy was the Owner of JE pistons...……..the largest in the world piston maker...he got tired of freezing in Michigan and retired then got bored. Stuff I was recommended by well...a Machinist I trust named Jerry who just happens to sell stroker LS and other engines for custom engine supply/SAG performance..which would be about the largest maker of engines for sale on the internet I know of so by volume I have the most dependable most used reliable crap I could get...


I did lots of shopping a few years back.

Just curious why you decided to stay with stock cubes? Once you pay for that Dragon Slayer crank, why not stroke it?
