Ok so I have forged pistons, rods, and stock crank. By purchasing a forged crank with a bigger stroke, i would have a stroked motor right. I know this is kind of a dumb question, i just been looking and if i have good forged pistons and rods, shouldnt i just buy a bigger crank and be dont done with it instead of buying a whole kit?

What size rods and pistons? Just adding a longer stroke crank to stock length pistons and rods will wind up with pistons above the deck. So it won't work like you think. The piston, rod and stroke kits are designed in a way to fit for the deck height used. The taller the rod, the shorter the piston compression height has to be.

Yup. The longer the stroke, the longer the rods must be but the pistons are shorter so they don't come out of the top of the block and crash into the head.

So you can't create a shortcut to a stroker, you have to get the whole kit.
