To stroke or not to stroke

I'm sure I'm gonna get some looks at this thread just for the title alone. I recently had to choose whether or not to build a stroker or not. Unfortunately I didn't go the stroker route this time. If something happens to this motor then I'm going for a stroker or a 4bt. It's a completely rebuilt 4.0 I had to have it honed cause it had a little ring grove in it but nothing major. A lot of new hardware went into it counting buying the motor to rebuild I've got around $1800.00 into it. What do ya'll think about the color I've chosen? Ok the Dang phone won't upload the pics I'll try again here in a little bit.

I always thought the 4.0 was the golden standered!
