Pro - Alters powerband
Pro - Forged rods and pistons
Pro - Able to handle gobs of power reliability
Con - Price

A friend of mine has Morana's stroker kit for his Mustang, high quality components and that is probably the sexiest sounding Mustang I've ever heard and it's a V6!

Id love to do this to a ranger. I just dont know what kind of horsepower #'s you could put out safely or if its even worth the money.

If you are swapping in an engine just swap in a 5.0.
