Who's running 2.1 Stroker and what do you think?

It's an idea that is early in it's life so I wondered if anyone on here has experience in doing something similar and what can I expect in cost to get there?

How far power wise can I get with a 2.1 or should I be aiming for a different set up entirely?

I do not plan on undertaking any of the work myself, I do not have the experience to even begin something like this so where would you go to get something built that will stand the test of time. I'm not interested in doing things by halves so when this project is undertaken I want to go somewhere reputable.

My expectations in the end would be something that could be used as a daily, completely road legal and has as little lag as possible. I am not a BHP chaser but I would imagine it would have to end up about 500BHP-600BHP or I may as well just stick with the stock internals.

Current setup is a 53 STI @340BHP

Appreciate the feedback all,

I can live with that. Plenty of time to get prepared and I would rather plough money into the STI than keep going through different motors. 

 

Would still be good to hear from from someone who has gone down this route and any recommendations?

Think I'd suggest getting in touch with scoobie clinic or such like an have a chat with them.

I've always lived by the "car triangle"

You can pick two and it won't be the 3rd

Fast......cheap......reliable

So if you want fast and reliable it won't be cheap

Would a built 2.5 not be a cheaper option?

tbh not huge difference. for 500 2.5 will need closed decking plus you'd need to source the block etc etc.

Scoobyclinic built my 2.5 specifically for 500-550 and would be my personal choice if i was to have another built, just can't beat the low down grunt imo :)

 

and as mattie says, cheap normal means wont last, with all supporting mods and such im well over 20k with a bit more spending to come to get to the 500
