331 STROKER ENGINE | THE “ICEMAN”
Tom “Iceman” Kazansky was a character played by Val Kilmer in the movie the Top Gun. “Iceman” and Tom Cruise character “Maverick” didn’t see eye-to-eye. Iceman had an extremely cocky personality and was known for his big ego. His signature bleached hair tips are closely associated with the fact that he is “the best pilot” in the new class of TOPGUN students. What does this engine have to do with Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Top Gun? Nothing… and yet everything at the same time! All jokes aside, we are headquartered in San Diego and a few of our engines are named after the Top Gun movie pilots.

A 331 stroker engine is a Ford 302 that has been “stroked” with a larger crankshaft. This gives the engine more torque in lower RPM’s. You’ll see a similar engine online called a 347 stroker which is also a 302 block that has been stroked. The difference between them are the 331 stroker is a much more reliable and longer lasting engine because there is less piston side loading which helps make more power and doesn’t wear the cylinder walls, or expose the rings as much as a 347 does. The other benefit over a 347 is that the engine spins-up faster because it’s a lighter rotating assembly. By far the most fun small block Ford out there!

Trick-Flow is a serious name brand aluminum cylinder head that is neck-and-neck with AFR for the best heads money can buy for a Ford performance engine. Twisted Wedge is pinnacle of Trick-Flow’s heads, and the latest version (which is on this 331 stroker) is the 11R series. These heads work with most OEM and aftermarket intake and exhaust manifolds/headers.
It’s called Twisted wedge due to the patented design of an angled intake valve which is even more vertically designed on the 11R making it a 13-degree angle. However, this valve angle change also required repositioning the intake rocker arm stud and mandated a new pushrod guideplate. Fully CNC-profiled and bowl blended combustion chambers and CNC competition ported intake and exhaust runners to provide maximum airflow throughout camshaft valve lift, and guarantee the same amount of flow from port-to-port and chamber-to-chamber for improved power over the entire rpm range. From our research and development these 11R cylinder heads can out-compete most other brands by up to 50 HP!
