just about to have a go at building a 355 stroker. i have built other standard engines before so i am aware of machining and the like however just want to know if the 355 crank will fit straight in or will i have to get the block machined to to let it fit.

Being a VT block it will be factory stroker relieved. So yes, the crank will go straight in without any mods to the block (unless you run H beam rods, then some clearance will be needed). You will need to change the pistons and possibly rods though(rods depends on the crank you choose, if you go with Holden journals, you can run the factory Holden rods with stroker pistons on them).
