I would say to look into a SC3800 but it takes premium.

I'm ok with running premium just would rather not.

I really don't get everyone's problem I'm rebuilding my 4.p and thought I might as well do a simple stroker. I don't see a problem with asking questions and considering it

problem is this is like the 3rd thread you've started on this smokey engine of yours and they are all filled with the same shit. You want the gains, without the cost or work which doesn't happen in this world. Just fix whats wrong and keep wheeling or whatever you do. Instead of asking so many questions here, just take them to google and spend some time reading/learning what others did and make your own plan.

It's not simple

Your goals aren't realistic neither is your budget

Keep in mind with that build, he was using the older (pre HO) computer and wiring, which I believe had a knock sensor and can compensate a little better. The same build with a newer computer and wiring may not work as well.

I just wanted to know if I could run stock pistons with the 258 crank and rods successfully. If its requires boring the cylinder and gets too expensive I will just rebuild it as is. I have some money to spend just not gonna spend a fortune on a 4.0 when I could save for a 5.3. I am willing to do the work and plan to once it warms up

Running a 4.5 engine with stock transmission/transfer case gears is just stupid.
20hp could be made through bolt on mods. While installing 4/1 gears will be noticed. Then you could install taller gears in your axles or axles with taller gears and get a (slight) mileage increase while having a better craw ratio then stock.

This is from experience through starting with a pos 999 3 speed, installing a Cherokee 4 speed, then installing a 5 speed. Gearing to keep the engine within the power range while making more power through that gearing works.

Having the transfer case set up to make torque when needed works.

Turning your engine into a "stroker" to make next to no gains does not work.

one specific question that could be answered with 15 minutes on google.



dont put money into a flat tappet motor. my stroker as well as every other one ive seen has had cam issues within 100k miles, some farther away from that figure than others. by the time you invest in roller lifters and rockers, and get all the bells and whistles to do a stroker... youve got a highly modified tractor motor that no longer has the reliability of a stock motor. and when you compare HP/$, you could have easily dropped in a 5.3L.

but a 5.3 costs too much, right? you think the stroker is cheaper? it only looks like it because, as someone said, your budget is unrealistic. you want cheap? drop in another 4.0 and be happy. you can find them for <$500 and itll only take a day or two of work. but im sure that task will be rough enough for you. better get to posting threads about what plug goes where and "lefty, tighty, right?"
