Always upgrade when repairing if possible, I'd go for the stroker. What's the price difference?

Do a 4 or 5mm if it will fit, and you will not need to buy a 14r next year.

4mm stroker will give up 1 set of piston rings unless you have a very custom setup with smaller wrist pins. 2x2 would seem to be the hot ticket for the street. Since you need a crank and pistons for the stroker app anyway, you are just looking at a little extra for bore and plate.

aceperformance.com has done a 2x2, and it made probably a bit more power than a 14R.

stock lenth rods have a better piston to rod ratio but u loose a set or set of piston rings, but on the outher hand the short rod puts stress on piston wall. i think alot of people lean with stock lenth rod. im gana say the hell with it and go 4mm stroke. if money gets better ill go 2mm bore too.
