Default Baffle kit for IOX340 Stroker?

So none of the options listed in the catalog include the Stroker variants using the 320 and 360 cases. Ive got an IOX340 so I?m not sure whether to order for the 360 or 320. My inclination is the stroked 320 is closer to a 360 size but I cant be sure.
Any ideas?

JMO but would think the 320 baffle kit would be the one since the 340 stroker is based on a 320.

Nope. Not the 360. The stroker is a stroked out 320. The cylinders have the same dimmensions as a 320. You want the baffle kit for the . . . Wait for it. . . The 320!

So how do I know? Well, I have one on my 9A.

The Titan 340 is available with tapered fins on the cylinder, most likely needs different parts where it wraps the cyl fins.

Use the "original" baffle kit.

An increase in displacement via a "stroker" crank typically uses the original cylinder assembly.

Generally, a longer stroke will require either a shorter connecting rod, change in piston pin location or a combination of both.

FWIW
