Hi folks. Anyone actually use a 390 stroker kit on a 318LA? Since the motor is in line to get rebuilt, builder asked me to consider. It certainly will provide some performance. I assume I would need to upsize the radiator and can reuse the 727. I already have disks on the front. Anything else I should consider?

If your radiator is a 22” then you could have a 3 row, narrow fin core installed to your original radiator. I would add a radiator style transmission cooler and bypass the transmission cooler within the radiator. Cam selection will be very important.
