355 Stroker Project

Evening all, just wondering if anybody has had much experience with 355 Strokers? I've been wanting to build one for a little while and just the other day on ebay I bought a couple of things to slowly make my dream come true. I'm looking at building a twin turbo 355. Just bought 2 turbos, wastegates and an intercooler (all new) off ebay this evening (quite a good price - $1250 without postage).

Firstly I was just after some clarification. Are 304 blocks stronger than the 308's? Also, (I'm pretty sure about this one) are the blocks out of VR's already relieved to fit a stroker crank (and MAYBE the con rods)?

Clutch Pivot Ball adjust

Need advise on adjusting the pivot ball,
I understand I need to get 48 mm on the fork,(http://gallery.oldho...) bell houseing face clearance ,
The clutch pedal is about 60 mm higher than brake after adjustment on the bell housing screw (the big black nut)
I discovered this AFTER installing the clutch and box etc,
I can turn adjust the pivot through inspection hole and a small screwdriver in back of bellhousing,

Gemini Brake Upgrade

G'day guys. My dad is in the process of building a clubman, and were putting in gemini hubs, Just wondering if its possible to upgrade to something like 2 piston calipers? and just making them a bit beefy. I know their are some conversion kits for gemini-vt brakes but their about $3000 just for the kit.

If anyone has some good ideas or experience with it, it'd be a big help. Thanks guys, Brett

Warning Off Topic :)
I still have my first trail bike....sadly its in a gazzillion bits...with many missing.
Talk over the last couple of days has been about bikes like mine, so I thought I would as the question.
Its an Orange tank XL175. I would quite happily part with it if I could find another XL to replace it with. A white XL185, a silver XL250...or something along those lines would be great.

look what my mate did.

After work on friday i went to my mates place as i normally do for a beer or 2 and had just pulled into his driveway, turned it off, just about to get out and i see the reverse light come on his pajero. I was about to restart my car and bang the bastard reversed into me.

Nose cone and grill copped all the damage from his towbar.

I'm going to use this as incentive to get my hq ute going, the motor from the wagon is a good 308 and there is heaps of good stuff i can use on the ute, gts dash etc.
