Wow, so someone -does- make them. I wonder what that ups the displacement to?

I wonder what the power increase is on this stroker kit horsepower and torque wise. Would be nice to see some numbers. The price on it ($3100.00) seems kind of high in my opinion. For that price a super charge seems more cost effective.

I'd be willing to bet, if you worked the heads a little bit, added some headers, a larger throttlebody and worked on the intake manifold a little bit, you could see naturally aspirated power levels that are equivalent adding a supercharger on a stock V-6. The best part? You could STILL supercharge the stroker. Imagine a really lightweight motor that makes the same power as a mildly breathed-on 360ci motor. Or imagine making the same power as a 360 motor supercharged to about 5 psi.....

Now drop that into a regular cab and go 14.0's to 13.8's. And it would still handle. And chances are, you'd still get 21 mpg.

The reason the 3.9 stroker kits are so expensive is that no one make a forging besides a Billet . Thats were the major cost of the kit is at . Custom Billet cranks are very expensive, and until someone make a forging other than Billet thats the only option for a stroker crank.

Here is the info i got from the place selling this kit for the 3.9's. Maybe if we get enough interest from people about this we can get a group buy going once they finalize the kit. Hope this info helps.

Thank You for your interest in www.strokerkits.com The 3.9 stroker kit Is
our newest stroker we have available. We are still in the process of
figuring the amount of material in the blocks so we know how far we can bore
and stroke the kits out to.
We are writing the Program for our CNC machine to make sure
there is plenty of material for cleancing in the block.
We may have jumped the gun a little advertising this kit on
the Web -site . We have had a surprising amount of interest in this kit. If
we keep getting this large amount of feed-back on the kit we may be able to
get with our Crank designers and see if we can get a different type of
Forging for the cranks besides the Billets. That way we can lower the price
on the kits. Please give us about four weeks to get are program together so
we can give you the best information possible. Once Again thank you for your
time and support.

Thanks,
Jason

just some quick numbers
if they can stroke a 360 to 408
408/8 x 6=306 cubic inches?
ne1 think this would be possible
a 5 liter V6?

this is starting to sound good

FMS injectors, Autolites,clear corners,V8 TB ,
Pro Comp es9000,Airraid intake with 97 air hat, R/T Rims
S-bolt mod, relocated IAT

I was figuring about 4.78L or so. But with a little tweaking, getting closer to 5 shouldn't be a problem. Can you imagine a 4.8L V6 running 9PSI of boost with some nice head work and a decent cam? I would have to think that engine would -move-!

If you do like a .30 overbore would that help increase the cubic inches, or is that something different? Im not too familiar with all the terms.

4.7 LITER V-6 THAT'S BIG ENOUGH. AND THATS WITH A VIRGIN BORE 3.9 WITH A 4.0 STROKE SOUNDS MIGHTY INTERESTING SHE GONNA BE A SLOW REVVING ENGINE BUT ITS GONNA MAKE LOTS OF TORQUE. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

She should rev pretty decent if you use light weight rods and pistons. But yeah, it won't be a quick revver. I ran some numbers in Desktop Dyno (Yeah, I know, but it -did- get close with the real 3.9L numbers, so it's a point to start)

(All numbers are Flywheel -projections-)

2000RPM - 108HP 293 Ft/bs
2500 - 133 279
3000 - 161 281
3500 - 181 272
4000 - 194 254
4500 - 193 225
5000 - 178 187

And thats just with the 4" crank, nothing else. I ran a mod with a Supercharger puching 6PSI as well, with ported heads and free-flow exhaust. The numbers were... nice.

2000 - 157 412
2500 - 202 424
3000 - 249 436
3500 - 294 441
4000 - 333 437
4500 - 370 432
5000 - 388 408
5500 - 379 362

While I don't trust the second run very much, I am interested in how the powerband is nice and smooth up to 5000RPM before dropping. No more lumpy powerband! Hm... I really wonder how close those numbers are? Getting even within 10% would rock... I think I'm going to start saving.

Boring the Cylinders 0.030 over will only increase displacement by about 1.8 cubic inches, which bumps it to 293 from 291.7 or so. That computes to 4.82L or so, roughly. So yeah, it does increase the displacement. I don't know if I'd go 0.030 over though, and run a lot of boost. Your thining the cylinder walls down considerably, if you want to bore it later (to remove a defect), it's going to be hard to do. Like someone said though, a 4.7L V6 is freakin huge for a V6...

Ive checked out the kit as well and sent them mail. Recieved the same email thats listed above, give or take a few words. One question for ya tho.
The listing says 3.9L V6. Is that ALL 3.9Ls rom 87 to now, or just the mag 3.9Ls? My 1990 non mag is about to be replaced. Either with a 318 or a slightly larger mopar. But this looks intresting! Thx
