Stock should be fine. The stock high tq starters have a ~1" copper tube spacer going between the solinoid and the rear of the started case. The spacer is there because the windings in the starter hare longer, thus the spacer is needed. Starters with the hot lug directly off the back of the solenoid are not the high tq.
The starter in question is going on a 383 stroker for a 1996 GMC Sierra. I don't know the compression ratio yet because I haven't talked it over with my engine builder/machinist. But thanks for all the useful info guys.
Truck -- 96 GMC 5.7L
SHOW -- 20" Eagle's -- Ram Air Hood -- Real HID conversion 8000k -- PPG white w/ blue pearl -- LED's everywhere
GO -- Hypertech programmed -- Hypertech underdrive pullies -- Edlebrock shorties -- K&N cold air intake -- coming soon 383 stroker
If it was me i'd just try the stock one and if it didn't work out worry about it then. I feel the stock one will do fine. I have a stock starter with 160k miles on it on my 95 1500 383ci with 10.1:1 compression. It does just fine.
