A few years ago stroker motors weren’t very reliable but with testing and redesigning now they are almost as reliable as a stock motor as long as you treat them right.
What is the benefit of a stroker motor?
A stroker is an engine that has been modified to increase the length of the stroke and therefore has a greater engine capacity. Its benefits are improved torque and power.
Do stroker engines last?
A stroker will last quite a long time depending on how you treat it and how high you rev it. A stock engine can go over 200k with real good care…a stroker will be less.
How long will a 347 stroker last?
Seriously, I keep reading the 347 stroker is unreliable by design and to expect a long life from one, in a primarily street application, be it mustang or truck is not realistic. I think the general consensus is, you can expect it to live to 40-60,000 miles but by then it would be worn out.
Why do stroker motors make more power?
A stroker kit increases an engine’s displacement by lengthening the stroke of the piston. In a kit will be bespoke engine components altered from OEM parts to achieve this increase in stroke. They allow the piston to travel further up and down the cylinder thanks to the use of a different crankshaft.
How much HP can a stroker kit add?
So, as a given rule, the more cubic inches an engine is, the more power it will make. However, the horsepower output will largely depend on the overall combination you are using. We could take a 500″ short block and with stock heads and a mild cam, it might make around 450-475 horsepower.
Is a 347 stroker reliable?
Registered. As long as it is built right it will last as long as any other performance engine.
Are stroker kits bad?
Yeah, strokers can hurt N/A power if not built right, because it lowers the rod/stroke ratio. If you build the motor with one, you can’t rev it as high because of the extra stresses put on the components.
What is the benefit of a 383 stroker?
The stroker has an increased piston speed because of the longer stroke. The stroke increases the rod main’s centerline diameter. The rod and piston have to travel in a larger diameter in the same engine rpm. This increases the piston speed, which makes the stroker pull more air at a lower engine rpm.
What exactly is a stroker motor?
A stroker engine is basically just an engine that has had the stroke increased to more than was originally from the factory. A stroker kit is a collection of components that make building a stroker engine possible. … By increasing the stroke of the engine (and also the bore, too) you can increase the size of the engine.
