have an opportunity to purchase a complete 290 hp 389 f0r $350.It's a runner. Would this be a good candidate for a stroker for a 68 bird?Also hi to you all, how is everyone doin?

Heeey there you are Still above ground here, how bout yourself?I'd stay away from the 389 personally, although it could probably work fine. Heck the price is right if you can hear it run. I just prefer the 67-74 stuff as a starting point because its what I'm most familiar with and the heads are more developed with the improved valve angle. Of course if you're doing a stroker you'll probably use aftermarket heads. I'm not familiar with the nuances of 389 blocks but wanted to give a hey back.
