Default Need some opinions

Ok here's what i got. I'm about to do an HCI swap (i know, do it in the winter, but i'm excited and i want the hp now). I realize that i'm gonna have to take the motor apart pretty much down to the block...I'm thinking about stroking it out. I saw that they have 331 and 347 kits on e-bay, is this all i need. CanI do it myself or should i get someone that has already done it? bad idea? Any opinions would be great and anyone who wants to tear my idea apart feel free

+1

Also, you were just gonna do H/C/I and now your talking about stroking the motor-big job. I would say wait for winter. If you can't, just to the H/C/I for now and then hit the block this winter (you'll also have more experience by then). Good Luck
