Thumbs up starter's - crome or torque- which is better

I am buying a new starter for my iroc-z ,350 tpi v-8 . I really want to get the crome one from summit , but PAW has a high torque one that cheaper. how important is torque any way . should I get the high torque and just polish it by hand? let me know what you think

An OEM Delco rebuilt starter is fine in most cases. Properly shield it from the exhaust.

Like we used to say in High School...
If it ain't fast, chrome it!

You got many people climbing under that 350 to look at your starter??? If it's a show car chrome is the way to go. It's going to turn purple first time it hits a water puddle hot.
Unless you've really, I mean really, beefed up your engine internals you don't need high torque, do what Joe said and go back with the Delco. Save your $$$ for chrome someone can actually see.

Well put Dan .

I can tell you there are cars out there that will eat other cars alive and are using an OEM stock starter.

I can't see that your engine is souped up enough to need that. Either that, or you have a heat shield missing or exhaust right against a starter which would give you a hot crank problem.

Save your money.
