Bill, with all due respect, Audi has not made a "cast" crank in any I5 for the last 30 years, all Audi I5 cranks are forged, esp. the long stroke cranks.  Not sure where the magazine got its information, but it was incorrect.

Revving a stroker motor to 7k rpm is not a problem, most people make way too much of the theoretical implications of rod ratio, etc.  These motors can rev without damage, even in the 95.5mm stroke.

I've driven many stroker motors, even a 95.5 with an 83.5mm bore, I'd encourage anyone who has driven a stroker motor with experience that says _otherwise_ to speak up.
