You wont go wrong with a Jim Barth motor. Jim just built a stroker for a friend of mine. And he is in cloud nine. I had ab383 with a Superram and it was a great combination. Low 11s in the quarter.

The top bolts can be accessed with a 24" 3/8" extension and a 9/16" swivel socket. I use a 1/2" adapter on the other end with a 1/2" ratchet to break the bolt loose.
