stroking to 4.3 - 01-02-2010

I am wanting to keep my 4.0 block...just making it a bit better.


I have heard that Tom Morana is not the best option..but thusfar he is the only place I have even seen the words 4.3 and stroker kit in the same sentence.

I have heard that SSM has Pistons and rods..is that essentially the same as a 4.3 stroker?


I just want the internals to put out a few more ponies, and handle much more through FI.

Any Ideas?

Please note I am in Germany and that means I can't just go down the street, or order it...But any places I will look into it.

Thanks

Stroking it will weaken the crankshaft and also put higher stresses on the the rods and pistons, and the block.

You could put in a 4.0 BMW v8, you'd be replacing one german engine with another ;)
I don't know about making the gauges work with the BMW though.

Learn from my mistakes. Don't do the sts kit. It sounds horrible on the v6. It also does suck in water in the rain. I moved the turbo up front and reworked all the piping to put the exhaust back on. Works so much better now.

ok i just went a little further on their site ya ur right its messed up. just call them, anyone there will be happy to help you out. i didnt even buy my kit from them (bought it used) and they treat me as if i did.
