Most V8s people put in jeeps make less power then a well built stroker but assholes who have never built one have no fucking clue. e.
If you are referring to (horse)power, most strokers do not beat most stock V8s of the last 10 years.

In the end, its an engine. Somewhere around 4.7 liters, with a poor flowing head and a long crank designed for low RPM operation. There is nothing there really conducive to building power.

It makes a very nice torque curve, for sure, especially in a practical sense, where it feels stronger than it sounds, down in the low rpm range.

Would you care to explain what you've done to elevate the HP on your stroker, from the normal range of about 240ish hp (SAE NET) up into modern V8 territory? Or, what are your expectations of power and torque that a well built stroker is making?
