CobraMarty I saw he sold his Jeep and is selling all his Jeep Stroker parts.

Rebel442 I talked to Brad about a year ago, last news was he was having a kid. I have a feeling that put an end to any jeep plans. I usually run into once a summer or so, so I'll try and remember to make him come back with an update.

SkylinesSuck Just curious what you had compared the OBX header to. I just got mine today and I'm a little disappointed with what I got. Looks like TIG welds on only the outside, the collector flange on the inside sticks out into the flow a lot, but most importantly the thing weighs next to nothing. The runners seem like they have very thin walls to me. Maybe it's because I'm comparing it the manifold I had on my Skyline (also a straight 6) but it seems kinda flimsy and hastily thrown together to me. Trying to decide if it's worth it to try and clean it up with a grinder on the inside then have it coated and install it or not.

keep us updated buddy !

hows the new job going ?

HA! I knew you would be happy with that post! I'm still not completely sure about the supercharger plans, but one thing is for sure that I will definitely be running naturally aspirated for quite a while after it's built. There's something about running high compression (10:1) with an increased redline and nitrous that sounds quite attractive to my ears lol.

My plan all along was to build a stroker that ran at optimum capacity, and introduce power adders after the fact. However, at this point I'm completely focused on getting this stroker back together and running strong so I can enjoy driving the jeep again, and consider a simplified power adder option (such as nitrous) that won't completely change the n/a setup.

The forged bottom end combined with the modified head and high quality top end components will allow me to safely run high compression, increased redline (6,000 possibly), and nitrous without a single worry. I'm sure that setup will be plenty of power for my stripped down, lightweight jeep

As for the job, I couldn't be happier! Absolutely love working from home, and I finally feel self sufficient and confident. I can see myself being with this company for many years! Thanks for asking my friend

I will begin to post more frequently in the upcoming weeks as progress begins.

Thanks for the nice words! This has definitely turned into quite a crazy stroker build lol. I currently have an Eaton m90 supercharger I was planning on installing after the stroker was built and broken in, but now I'm leaning more towards naturally aspirated w/ nitrous and meth injection. I haven't talked much about this yet since my main focus is getting the damn stroker back together, but there will be many discussions about power adders soon to come.

As for fuel management, believe it or not but the stock fuel pump, fuel lines, and rail are more than adequate for handling the increased flow. As for the fuel injectors, I already have a set of oversized injectors to handle the increase in fuel requirements. Here's my prior post regarding the fuel injectors...

I figured this would be the better short term route when the engine is back together to get me on the road instead of buying injectors to work with the supercharger and have them tuned down to work with the N/A setup prior to the s/c install.

I honestly don't mind the wait, considering that I've had to be patient while I was between jobs... Otherwise I'm usually impatient over these types of situations lol.

The good news is that most of the parts are already purchased and awaiting install, minus the camshaft, roller rockers, and chrome moly push rods. So things will be in motion hopefully soon.
