Question Bore and stroke 2009 v6 mustang engine. Where do I start?

Since I bought my v6 I've wanted to bore and stroke my engine so I can run with the big boys and not race little ricers I know I'm going to beat. Please, any advice you can give is helpful, I have no idea where to start. I need to know what is an acceptable bore size to gain power but not sacrifice engine integrity, where I could find the parts to stroke the engine, and whatever else needs to be done like other modifications need to be made, etc. Thanks in advance!

Forget stroking that V6.A lot of work for really
not that much gain. Throw a supercharger on
it and call it a day. You will get the same hp
gain with a hell of a lot less work.

I know I know, little v6 can't do much with it. I just can't afford 8 grand for a supercharger. brick gift But I can afford a grand to get this done

They are not quite 8 grand but they definitely
are expensive. Unfortunately this hobby is getting
to be an expensive one. I bought a trickflow intake
about 5 years ago for $300, that same intake goes
for $450 now.

I could be wrong, but I think it will cost way more than a grand to tear the engine apart, machining, replacing pistons (and possibly rods and crank).
