It's the same as any motor. It is changing the stroke of the motor in order to add displacement. You can do this by changing the rod length or the stroke on the crank.

Based on your other post it seems your looking for power and low track times. Try visiting and posting these questions in the engine , tranny and dragstrip subsections. You will get better info from the people who have done it before.

Not that carbon8 was wrong.

There are many very knowledgeable people in those sections who can help you get where you want to go with your build.

Just partly wrong, rod length doesn't affect the stroke at all, that's all in the crankshaft.

But you do have to run shorter rods if you have a stroker crank. They all have to fit perfectly together, so to the op, if you are serious contact a sponsor like jre

That depends on your deck height and piston length. For strokers ideally you want a longer than stock rod for a more ideal rod length to stroke ratio, which keeps the piston speed down and increases dwell time for best performance.


To compensate for the shortcomings of the factory deck height, shorter than stock pistons will be utilized in a stroker engine.
