Ther is a 30 ft v-8 powered RV with Banks power in this neihborhood. About a 1991 Southwind. Chrome insignia on LF fender.

Banks has a kit for the V-10 already.

STBRetired, thanx. Just the answer I needed.

Rich, where are you finding these parts? Then there is the balance problem.


I couldn't find stroker crank for the V10. I suspect the 4.165 crankshaft on the V10 mostly fill the crankcase.
All the other stuff is readily available.

Or are you talking about my 528?

Maybe you could do to your V10 like I did to my 460 Bounder. Add a stroker crank, RV cam, raise the compression ratio, Banks exhaust & a tuner. Never too much HP...................

The only thing I know of that is available are cams........and they cost around $1000! A crank would be custom. Performance Pistons and rods from a 5.4 are a direct fit. No aftermarket heads available, and again head work would be pricey and not worth it for the minimal gains they would give!


But it's all about the fun and the challenge. Some of us gearheads never outgrow "more HP & Torque". Don't you waste money on some fun?

Oh ya, I am a gear head. Always have been and always will be. I've had several mustangs and a big block 'Cuda with nitrous. But the V-10 is a workhorse and it takes a lot of money to get real HP out of it. Once you get the power now you have to beef up everything behind it. If it's in a MH leave it be so it stays reliable! The only thing I'm going to be doing is to add a Tuner, and that's for the improved shift strategy and to improve the lazy drive by wire system.

The V10. If there was a stroker crank, there would be balance problems. The V10 has a balance shaft in the driver side head now.
