Who doesn’t want more power and low-down torque from their engine? Modifications to stock engines have existed as long as the internal combustion engine itself, and are often carried out by racing enthusiasts with a little more knack in getting the power increase they need. With engines today going down the downsizing path, there’s the tendency to see the lower displacement helped out by one or two turbines to force more air in the cylinders. Peak power is produced relatively high in the rev range, so you’ll be having your right foot down longer until you get some push. The alternate path to all this is to increase engine displacement. This is where stroker engines and stroker kits come into play.
