You can spend as much as you want on a stroker. There is lots of fancy parts out there.

But all thats needed is a 258 crank and custom pistons. the rest is just a basic rebuild.

Well that all depends on what sort of SCR and DCR you're looking to achieve, which will dictate what octane fuel to run.. so a new cam may be in order as well.. but I agree its relatively straight forward, its not a racing motor and its probably going to have a high compression..

Ok, since this is posted on the internet and is searchable I need to correct my statement above.... so no one else has to go through the hell I have been going through.

DO NOT USE THIS SHOP FOR ANY REASON!!!!! I repeat...

DO NOT USE NTX SPEED MACHINE IN FARMERS BRANCH TEXAS FOR ANYTHING!!!!!

Yes, they are friendly and they will be happy to tell you they can do the work, then they take way longer than they say they need to do the job, and when there is a problem with their product, they will talk in circles and point you in 100 different directions and have you running around questioning everything but their build, BUT will laugh at you and get very defensive and arrogant if you question their build or even ask if they could have miscalculated something.

This is my experience and my personal recomendation so take it for what its worth, but there are so many other shops in the area I wouldn't even look at this one to do any work for you. If they can treat one person like this, they will do it to YOU!!!

Its not over, so I can't post specifics right now but I will let you all know specifics after it plays out.

Nope. They got a lot of my money and I got an engine that doesn't run. Those kids have no idea.... That's no way to treat people

I have an 06 4.0l, with 130000k, that makes noises where it shouldn't be making noises. So I have been reading your thread with very high interest. But, what kinda tool is this that you show here and what does it do for the fuel?????? thank you for the great information too.

wow Sorry to hear of your troubles with this shop. You may have to sue them if nothing else works.

It just detatches the fuel line. There is a spring in the connection that has to be moved to release the line.

wow, after getting all excited while reading this thread, that was a shit ending.

If they gave you an engine that doesn't run, I'd go after them faster than buzzards on road kill.

What did you find out?

I haven't heard from him in a while. Don't know what he ended up doing.
I know he did end up changing the cam. But something still wasn't right. Last I heard from him I think he was wanting to set it a fire and roll it off a cliff

Is there any update on this?

I live in the same area as the OP (Carrollton/Plano area) and would like to know which shops are good and which are not, for when I need to do this.
