Stroke the motor and you're just freeing up HP that the block was capable of producing. Where does it end? Bolt ons make HP...some more than others. Whether you consider that freeing it up or making it the end result is bolt ons = HP.
    I wouldn't go by manufacturers or magazine claims either. I ran a guy in a cobra some years back and we pulled over and chatted a bit. I asked him how much HP he thought he was putting to the ground. This guy started rattling off magazine bullshit and that's what his rwhp was.

    I think its safe to say that when you mod your car, either way you need the basic bolt -ons to get the best out of her..LT headers, CAI, ummm better intake manifold, etc...

    taking about CAIs, I haven't forgotten about you man......work has been crazy and I still haven't been able to get into the garage to build my good one.
    I'll take lots of pics while putting it together
