When viewing pistons at bottom dead center, stroke becomes very apparent. A 302 turned 347 becomes quite the huffer—more like a 351. You can even hear additional displacement with the engine’s deeper exhaust tone. When a 351W becomes a 408 or 427, it sounds like a big-block. A 408 or 427W stroker yields more power without the weight penalty of a big-block.
