What is keeping the Jeep stroker from putting out bigger Hp numbers. The new Chevy 3.6 V6 that is being installed in the Camaro is putting out 304HP 273ft/lb torque and the new Mustang 3.7 V6 is putting out 305hp and 280ft/lb of torque(torque numbers are a bit lower than I would want). I know these are new designed engines with new technology, but I have seen some old technology, pushrod, 302 fords put down some big hp/torque numbers.
I just thinking WOW! a 3.6 with 304hp, and gets 29MPG?
Now I haven't dynoed my stroker, but with all the time spent porting the heads, as well as all the other performance upgrades (roller rockers, bigger T/B, bigger cam, larger injectors) I don't think I would have more than what...260-270hp???
My next stoker I am thinking about building will have a 4.000 inch stroke and ???? size bore. Let's just say it was a 4.00 inch stroke with a 4.00 inch bore and used a 6.000 inch rod, that would be a 302 cid, with a 1.50 rod ratio. So now that is a 302 cubic inch 6 cylinder. Can you expect the same power as a 302 V8 with the same bolt ons(Cams, rockers ect)?
Is it the head design that limits the power of the engine?
