for a stroker your gt-40 heads will hold back the full potential of that motor, imo 347 ftw
heck if it's going in a truck I'd just put the motor in as is!! unless your building a street strip truck

i know it has the same lift as a F303 cam but a friend of mine swapped a F303 cam in his truck he took it out in a month it doesnt have the torque a truck needs.. he installed that cam and is very happy...

looks as if that cam is designed for lower rpm and torque which is where you'd want a truck to develop power = down low for pulling or towing, if your not concerned with it being a strip truck as stated then like I said I wouldn't spend all that money to do a stroker.....that motor should meet your expectations as is as long as the truck will have a decent exhaust and gears in the rear

Camshaft


Long Tube Headers


3:73 Gears


Advance Timing



You'll be happy, I drove a stock explorer with that motor, stock timing etc, it pulled decent.
