I have read the whole thread. It's your truck so do what you want. IMHO your going about it the wrong way. Your building a stroker for power and a tripower for looks. To get the best bang for your buck on your stroker you need a purposely Set up 4 barrel. Nothing wrong with a tripower. I'm running one myself. But you will not get the performance of a 4 barrel. If you've already built the motor put a 4 Barrel on it and keep the hood shut. If not. Pick up a 350 and build a tripower for that.
