Not the norm. 2.5L stroker kits by 505 Performance

I know everyone says take a 2.5 for what it's worth, and I get it.
But I'm stubborn!!!
Does anyone have any feedback or thoughts on this?

Yeah, your're wasting your time and money. The 2.5L is the D35 of motors, great as is, but don't bother pushing it. I tried most every 'normal' upgrade for my old 2.5L, even got probably the last Mopar Performance Cam for it before they were gone. Nothing helped performance enough to bother. I went with a young used GM 4.3 OBDII model and couldn't be happier.

I would recommend going with someone else besides 505. I've not had the best service (long delays in getting parts) and the quality of the machine work of the crank required additional work (only part that required additional work). I stroked a 4.0 to 4.9L the design was solid but other aspects could have used additional attention. If you know what you are doing when stroking an engine its only requires checking measurements. If you are expecting to pull the parts out and just assembling everything, I would recommend going some other route.
