Pretty sweet eh? I should quit working on my house and start another big jeep project.

I know a guy around Traverse city that has a grand on 35s w/ a t4 charged 318.

I have no idea what other mods he has but he raped my buddys big block dart. It was embarrassing to ride shot gun in the dart! 2 lengths on a 0-75mph run.

I have a grand Cherokee pcm (had a 318 and manual according to the guy that sold it to me)

Pm me if it is of any use.

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?

Damn I bet sounds pretty fast. I don't think I'll be using a 318 but if I do I'll be shooting you a pm

What's the difference between using a nsg370 to adapt a 5.3 to my current nv3550 vs a standard nv3550 adapter? You guys have said a nv3550 adapter is $1500 looks like its only $310. Here's the two adapters:

You can build a stroker for the price of a reman 4.0 so why not put a turbo on a stroker

Use a 95-00 Dakota bell and mount a bolt up a supercharged GM 3800 to that nv 3550.

You can get a entire second gen donor car for around $800. If you know someone in the collision business head to a dealer auction and find a 3rd gen one that has been rear ended or rolled. There is a freaking security thing on some of them but it is easily fixed if you ask around.

It is one of the lesser done swaps and stuff is out there to make it damn near plug and play. A second gen swap(entire 150k donor car, junk yard bell, mounts, aftermarket plug/play harness and all the little things that add up) you should be able to realistically swap it in a 2nd gen under 2k doing the work yourself.

The third gen is much better tuning wise then the 2nd. But get what you can afford to stuff it in there kind of deal. The amount of power and torque you can get out of a supercharged 3.8 with a few simple and mods (like a simple pulley swap which makes more boost for example). Best of all these things are like everywhere. The bottom ends on the second gen are damn near bulletproof in stock supercharged form.

Probably the best benefit is that the supercharger does not kick in till under heavy load in stock form which means "in many cases" despite needing to run 91 octane it will cost less per mile to drive then most of the other stroked engines you are considering. In stock form a supercharged 3800 will give you enough of a boost in power to make a difference while not making it at a rpm range that is going to break parts.

The only downfall of these engines is that they do not like an high compression ratio. There is really no need to up the compression though you can spline twisting amounts of power by messing with the top end alone if you decide to at a later time.

That's just my 0.02 considering reading this thread up to this point. Run what you want its your money after all. But, not to many people will look at a supercharged jeep as a bad thing.

Default 4.7 stroker or 5.3

Another good idea don't do a 5.3, jeeps with gm small blocks are too mainstream lol

Here is a link that tells you what motors you can use stock bell housings to hook your 3550 up to

Srt4 from a neon should bolt up to a 3550. That's a badass swap!
