Re: q's about stroking"no subsitue for cubic inches"

You have 2 real options for decent power, either a stroker or blower. Both will cost around the same to do properly and both have their own advantages. The blower will make more power and is pretty easy to install while the stroker will give you more low down torque. With both you can run the standard running gear, if you have a manual you can run into problems if you give it hell.
