I agree that any good stroker kit should reach 7k+ without problems, I just
mentioned the van crank in the interest of the thread about cutting cost at
teh expense of someones research & well put together kit! Also the rod ratio
theory has been blown out of the water long ago by VW (1.7-2.0) & many
Porsche & BM engines! All my favorites. I'd put together a stroker turbo for
my coupe in a N.Y. minute! But with a known kit!
All due respect!
