4.0/4.2 Stroker

What results have y'all had with the stroked 4.0? If I get this right the basic concept is my 4.2 crank in a 4.0 block, right? What else is involved? I found a '95 injected 4.0 complete for $400, needs rebuild, could be a good candidate.

Re: 4.0/4.2 Stroker

ok, a little searching, as I should have done earlier, I found the info. What about reliability? Any issues?

Re: 4.0/4.2 Stroker

If you haven't seen Rob Bryce's site, it will give you very good info.

Here it is: http://207.167.111.84/gaia/version19/testbuilder.asp

Hesco also sells a kit: http://207.167.111.84/gaia/version19/testbuilder.asp

Another place with a complete kit: http://www.accuratepower.com/Jeep/Stroker.html

Mine has only been in for a couple of weeks and I have had so much fun driving it already. I have plenty of power in overdrive with 4.10s and 33 inch tires. I am going to 35s.

I didn't catch where you are, but I had a guy build mine here in San Diego. He has built several and races one currently. The engine you found is ideal. Is that engine complete with fuel system, computer, harness, etc? Or, just the long block?

I am in central TX. We have a great machinist here in town so he will be doing that portion however I will do the rest. I asked the question about the extras (wiring/ecm/fuel...)still waiting on an answer.
