When you need to pull the fan, ask Visser for the tool he made. It's pretty nifty and was useful when he put a new cam and lifters in his buddies 4.0

I went wit the stage 1 kit. 30 over bore with a 9.2:1 compression. Instead of the Keith Black pistons I went with the Race Tech pistons.

As for pics....I only get to work on it on the weekends. It's up to my parents house at the moment, just because my neighbor is doing all of the machining on the block and head.

Well, it's been a long wait....but I finally have all the parts needed for the stroker. The pistons came in earlier this week and the block has been machined. The engine will be assembled tomorrow night, and hopefully Saturday I'll have a running Jeep!
