I've been searching around for a little bit about building a 4.6 stroker out of a 4.0 and every site I've visited makes it look like something that is going to take me years to complete. I guess I really don't mind the time it takes to build, I'm just looking for something within my budget. I've already pulled the air restrictor lookin for some cheap (FREE) horses but it did absolutely nothing. So searching for more power modifications after that brought me upon the stroker. It seems a lot easier than a V8 swap and it will put me at about 260 HP. As I've said before, I've looked at some of the "budget" setups and the parts lists and install procedures look way out of my mechanical knowledge and ability. I did notice that some parts are out of the 4.2 engine and some other parts are stock. So it makes it seem like I could hit a junkyard for some (or hopefully most) of the parts I need.
Also, how hard is it to build up this engine? The only engine I have ever completely rebuilt is a 5HP OHV Tecumseh go kart engine. That's probly not even close to the I6 in my Jeep. As long as I don't have to weld or fabricate anything for the build, I think I might be able to figure it out.
If anyone has any first hand experience with building a 4.6 stroker, please share your knowledge! Maybe include a basic parts list for dummies or a link to an easily understandable site about it.
I have searched the net a little and have been too lazy to really read all the results, half of them being links to things completely unrelated to this topic anyway. So I figure I'll post this and get info and/or links that are related to what I'm trying to research. Thanks!
