Making It All Work
We left a few things, such as headers, off the engine, since they will be up to the end user. Ken himself recommends a primary length of 34 inches, and 1 5/8-inch diameter primary tubes. Final selection will be made based on body type and final application. Here are a few other items to consider when building a stroker 318 that won't be bullied around any longer.
