Hi,
I'm thinking about buying a car with a 528 Hemi (Indy cylinder Heads, ~700 hp) and 4 speed automatic transmission (Keisler A41).
Does anybody have experience with this combination?
Are these big stroke engines durable and suitable for daily use or strip use only?

If 528 combination is a four and a half inch bore by 4.15 stroke, it should be extremely durable. Assuming that it was put together right with good parts.

Probably the best hemi stroker combo there is for bore stroke ratio. Still a preferred choice for high rpm blown apps.
