Default 3.7L Stroker Kit?

Anyone caught wind of any development of a stroker kit for the 3.7L, or is it already considered a long stroke engine and not likely to ever receive such a thing? If the old Buicks received it from Kenne Bell, then why can't we?

I've been surfing the net but I'm coming up empty.

If you were looking for more performance then personally I would have just gone with the GT. There will be a ton more upgrades out for the GT then the V6 right now but Im sure some v6 stuff will come out down the road.

GT's are too easy. I've always been much more interested in the power that can be pulled from fewer cylinders. Call me weird.

I read somewhere that the 3.7 has capacity to go up to 4.0 or 4.2 liters but it is way too early to be seeing any stroker kits for these motors yet. I bet that if anyone does hit the market it will be a year or more before you see any hint of it.

That hasn't got anything to do with a stroker kit.

I must be groggy from being up past midnight. I actually got a hearty chuckle out of that one!

I'm totally the same way and I like the underdog status of the V6 but stroker kits are expensive unless you can do the work yourself.
I think that with basic boltons and a tune this car will be good competition for all but the fastest modified V8s.

Who knows, we might see one from Ford directly in the form of a Duratec 40 in a few years. That's probably the most likely place you'd see a "stroker" from.

From the wiki:

You would get plenty out of it just by putting some pistons in that would bring the compression up to 11.5:1 or so. I would personally rather have a shorter stroke and higher redline, rather than the lower redline and increased bottom end torque associated with a stroker. If I want torque then nitrous would be the was to get it.

I would prefer the bottom end torque, which is severely lacking in this machine. I want that neck-snapping, gut-grabbing pull. For me the real fun isn't in the high-end speed but in the hard kick of the mule.
