Hesco Stroker

Im not in a position to buy the kit just yet, but i would like to cover what is needed and i have a few questions about options.

my first question is if anyone knows if there would be any reason to pay the extra for the Hard Chromed crankshaft?

my second question is what additional parts are neccisary to this build? I know i need larger injectors but i am unaware to were get them. also it says if i am to use the included camshaft i need their performance valve springs and retainers yeah?

should i invest anymore into my head? stainless valves? Performance rockers?

i have a shop that will install the kit, but im un-sure if they're capable of boreing my cylinders, if they're incapable where should i go to have it done? A machine shop i would assume

is there anything else i would need for the kit? ive heard of needing a larger aluminum radiator?

Do you have a link to where you a re getting the kit from?

Yes, a machine shop will need to bore your cylinders, most autoshops cannot do this but send it out to a machine shop so you don't need to hassle with it.

How much are they charging for the install? Have you looked at the Golden Engines 4.6 stroker?

I got a friend who installed a hesco after he flipped his rig
He went all out and I believe has $7,000 in it
He has dynatrac 60s rolling 40" tractor tires atlas 2 transfer case
Pretty much will go anywhere

ive looked at the Golen motors, and im not impressed and everyone that ive talked to with a golen has said they wished they would have gotten the Hesco instead.

i dont know how much they want, i just asked them if they could do it


im thinking a Dana 44 with chromo shafts on 35's should hold up well to the 4.7's power if im not being stupid with the gas

might be a silly question, but, would dana 44's with 4:88 gears, chromo shafts and riding on 35's hold up to the power of the 4.7L?
