    Talked to MACE?

    It will need a custom tune, a basic memcal won't do it with the stroker kit fitted.

    Fair enough, have you considered doing work to the heads? Porting etc?

    Yes i have, as far as i know the heads have pretty good flow but some porting would help. I figure about a grand should cover it.

    That's the downside of strokers the heads don't fit big enough valves to keep up with air flow demands

    You would want some pretty trick porting and a good valve job and a custom inlet manifold etc to make the most of a stroker would be at least 2.5k just for the porting tuning gonna be 1500 odd some form of custom ground cam to try and get the most out of the small valves not an off the shelf grind some valvesprings to suit pushed it soon adds up to a **** ton of money lol boost wins hands down for doller to hp ratio easy enough to make triple the stock output at the wheels on a stock engine with a turbo setup

    I intend to spend some money to get what i want but not that much on heads/porting
    I really didn't want to go a Turbo or Super Charger :(

    The $15000 come 4.2l strokers with ported heads etc used to go somewhere around 160rwkw years ago .an ecotec with headers exhaust and rockers with a cold air intake and tune can go 120rwkw if in good nick lol.
