4.0 to a Stroker Rebuild???

I've seen a couple 4.0 Renix motors and 4.2's on cragis list advertise as great stroker rebuilds. Just wondering if it can be done and about how much am I looking to do it? I would do as much work as I could but want a great job so I would assume the machine shop would install the crank and cam. Has anyone done this and liked the outcome???

I was quoted 1500-1800 to do mine.

That is me bringing in my engine, the crank (needs 10mm machined off the nose), and bringing in my new pistons and cam. I would also be getting the engine hot tanked, block bored out, and reassembled to drop in.

Piston sets (KB944) are $415 + shipping right now at summit
Cams are $200+
plus you're looking at the parts that get replaced in a rebuild freeze plugs, seals, gaskets etc.

So you'll be in the $2200-2500 range when all is said and done on the conservative side.

Some folks just pull the crank and rods and throw in the 4.2 stuff, which is done pretty cheaply it seems.

Well I don't mind doing it the correct way if it takes a bit longer. My jeep is running now and it has the 4 banger in it so getting more inches is very appealing to me @ the moment. LOL Is the machine shop installing all those items for you for 1800 bucks? Crank, pistons, freeze plugs seals and such? Are you going with the 4.6 build specs or using your own???
