    Don't bother with teh stroker kit. What i would do in your position is get the block sleeved and bored out to 85mm and use an LS crank. That'll bring you to just above two liters of displacment. Get some aftermarket rods meant for the LS crank and some 12:1 Wiseco slugs. With some nice cams like Toda B's or Jun 3's, Hondata, and a Skunk2 intake manny you should be putting down some nice numbers to the wheels.

    Dude, they are overpriced and you can gain some stroke by just getting an LS crank and rods. It'll be cheaper, easier, and with an 85mm bore, you'll have a grin from ear to ear with all the torque you have.

    You can do both, definitely. You can bore out as much as the sleeves will allow. You can stroke it, but I still wouldn't suggest a kit, just use the LS crank and rods. With the new crank and 85mm bore, you'll have more than two liters of badass displacement.

    I think what H22 is think is along the budget sense. If you are truly going for the all motor monster, and have the 2 grand it's going to cost for the stroker kit, then by all means go for it! The good think about the stroker kit is that you get all new rods and pistons, and through toda, you can get new pistons in an 85mm bore. That way, you'd pay about 2700 with the sleeves or so, plus a little labor for the boring, and you'd have either 2.1 or 2.2 liter dispalcement... Talk about badass.

    On the other hand, if you were looking for a budget setup, the ls crank, and H22's setup would be perfect. just look at how much money you want to spend, however if you go the used ls stuff route, I'd recamend getting the rods, crank, and pistons balanced, and the rods and crank beed blasted for safety. Nothing beets safety when you aren't working with completly forged internals.

    c-speedracing.com has a calculator for just those questions in the how-to section.

    if your serious about stroking it, why not deck-plate it? it will cost the same, and you will gain a lot more stroke. you might need a new hood though =)
