If your gonna go stroker make sure you look into being able to smog it if you plan for it to be street legal. There are only a couple stroker builders that guarantee their motors to pass smog in all 50. You also need to consider fuel economy if your on a tight budget. The few strokers I looked at were pumping through a lot more fuel then the stock set up. Know what your getting before you order. Also, most stroker builders give limited or zero warranties on the motor. Something to think about.

I had a truetest engine put in mine when the engine went. Ordered in the afternoon, it was delivered to my shop the next morning (KY to PA I think). Decent cost and the shop who put it in was impressed. They only installed Jasper before, and thought about switching after the good service from truetest and quality of motor. 3 yr/ unlimited mileage warranty if I remember correctly. 4 years later for me and no complaints.

I know this is an old thread but I found the true test web site but no contact info to order the engine. How did you order yours?
