Default Stroker Kit???

On the ZZP website, they are now listing in the coming soon section, a 4.1 liter stroker kit. Just wondering thoughts on this. I am assuming that this would be a conversion from our 3.8 liter, and boring it out till 4.1 liter.

What kind of gains/losses can be expected in this??? And this is probably for the L36 engine I would imagine, as the supercharger might have problems (or need tuning), to be used on a 4.1.

Thoughts??? Comments??? Ideas???

The compression will probably be a lot higher, making it act way different with a supercharger. You are probably gonna have to run very high octane fuel to race it.

That'll be sweet to do on a N/A engine.

To the best of my knowledge, the ZZP kit wont require ANY block modification. Crank-rods and pistons are about it. I've been waiting for this kit for my L67.

I've heard of the GN guys getting .5 seconds or more off their 1/4 time. What does tht translate into HP-I dont know. But its worth it.
I dont think ZZP has done it for an L67 yet, but its in the works.
