The front differential and the transfer case is something to worry about, though. They are both the weak points in our drive train, so I've been told.

I have read this so many times
The thing with this mod is that they were aiming for turbo-ing the engine so thei had special needs conserning straingth.
What I think we are looking for is a simple mild improuvment with aw many stock and easy to find parts that would give low torque reliably and not having to fix things every now and then

That is why the b2200 crank and rods only, if they fitted
would give a estimated 2200-2300cc with all the rest possibly stock maybe a litle bit of fuel presure more to compensate for the sligtly biger cylinders.

Why wont I try it you may ask and its pretty reasonable.
the answer is that I have a perfectly running engine and no spare money to dissasemble it just for the fun of it.
If I had a reason like worn piston rings an a smoking engine in need for a re-build, I surely would give it a try, since it would be already in pieces

how much would it cost to do a full rebuild with the stroker parts? (i have a bad rod knock, perfect candidate) either that or engine swap... i think swapping ina junkyard motor would be the cheapest..

Hi all,

I am still waiting on a detailed reply from Dave (DPK) from the Kia forum however I did get a snippet from him about his 2.3 stroker motor which includes briefly R2 crank diesel , std rods ;manufactured pistons.

Once I find out more I will post up for all to see <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Cheers, Chris <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
