Money is horse power If your pockets are deep and packed with money! You can build big H.P. but the longevity of the engine is limited The upkeep is time consuming and expensive!!! My drag engines are run on weekends and torn down and redone during the week and run again the next week end. You have the choice to make longevity or outlandish H.P.! Drag and street don't compute you have to build somewhere in between ! It would be ashamed to build a big stroker and have a little high revving 302 or 350 blow your doors off you can get gobs of H.P out of a 350 or gobs of torque out of a stroker ! Or even be real different and De-stroke a big block !!!

A long stroke engine piston speed up and down the cylinder is faster then a short stroke engines piston at exactly the same rpm. and a Stroked engine has more reciprocating wht. Reducing this wgt. costs money and increases H.P.
