Difference between stroker mototrs and normal worked v8's

This might sound like a stupid question but please bear with me.
I was look at diffrent engine builders to get my motor worked for my xe and i saw i.e. c.o.me. price lists it has 351 bracket master and then there are like 378 etc... strokers could someone please tell me the diffrence between a stroker motor and a worked motor if thats what the term is.

too lazy to log the mrs out..

a stroked motor has had the centreline of the rod journals on the crankshaft ground to a smaller diameter and off centre somewhat ..this gives the crank a longer (could be shorter if you wanted!) throw ... giving increased capacity. The capcity is Bore X Stroke .. make either one bigger and you get more capacity.
A 'worked' motor is one that has been modified... Fully Worked can mean anything ... the works .. ie: a $75000 V8 supercar engine to a $2500 rebuild with a cam and some headwork.

Obvioulsy you can 'work' a stroked motor too!

IMO COME is very expensive but their products are top notch. I have COME bracketmaster heads and cam on the XA and am more than satisfied. Seems bizzare to be going to a Chev specialist for Ford parts but (a) they are local and (b) their stuff is good!
Also, I havent been able to find someone advertising Cleveland stroker kits except them .. poor advertising by the rest I think!

the only half left !!!!!
