Stroker Kit 101


First what would I have to buy to make the Long Rod 4.3 Stroker kit form SSM work? Like what the difference between the normal 4.2 stroker and the 4.3 long rod stroker?

Also a couple of more questions regarding what else I would need with the kit.
1. Would I need to upgrade my fuel pump and injectors?
2. Would a trac-lok for my 7.5" rear end hold up or would I have to buy an 8.8" rear end?
2. And also does anyone know what an estimate price for getting my engine bored would be?, I can do everything except bore the engine.

the difference between the 4.2 and 4.3 long rod is that the 4.3 has a longer rod than the 4.2 giving it that .1 more displacement....and yes you would need to upgrade your fuel system.....ya your 7.5 will hold up your not going to be going to the track everyday...its not going to beat on that bad....and theres people on here that have turbos on their 6ers and still run their 7.5...and about the boring it would cost you about ~150 im not 100% sure so i would call a local machine shop and see what they charge...some are more expensive than others

long rods use a better rod i.e 351/408W stroker forged H-beam

thats the main difference... they are all good engines and if i were to buy something from them most likely i would get a 4.3 long rod

1- if youre gonna go over 300rwhp than youll need a bigger fuel pump and def need injectors.

2- even if you were on slicks doing hard launches everytime you wouldnt break that 7.5" without at least 300rwtq

3- cant help you here sorry

i bet i could snap an axle on a 7.5 with slicks if the 7.5 is stock.
even with a ford racing t-lok like mine...i launch at 5k or more rpms. that thing will not hold. with 290rwtq with slicks
you'd have to burn out in the water box.
i have a hard time doing burn out the way i used to with my drags...i have to drop the clutch at probably 4krpms or more
