      Ok just bought a 94 Rado and so far in love with it but it's toooooooo slowwww so I've came down to obviously makin the 12V turboed sounds logical to me, now I've came across a 3.2 stroker kit that seems like a fun little project within a project. So my question is has anyone done the stroker kit from eurospecsport.com with a garrett gt3582r? Oh and what's a good place for drivetrain upgrades? Any suggestions will help since I'm looking to do this during the winter and hopefully have it running by end of next summer

      The idea is good. In reality bad. The cylinder walls of your engine would be very thin after that stroke to 3.2 and adding F/I to that will cause your engine to blow. I suggest if you do go F/I and you are hell bent on making extra power with the F/I(turbo or S/C application)get a good P&P on your head, Bigger valves, or both. A P&P'd head,BVH, or both BVH and P&P will yield more power for your F/I application and you won't have to run as much boost through it to attain your desired power level. Also if you decide to work your cylinder head think about cams too they add a good bump to a F/I application just make sure you have the right programming and big enough injectors to compensate for the A/F or else you risk going lean and then Boom. If you are hell bent on upping displacement too(upping displacement on 12v VR6's only really adds torque and maybe 5-12whp if that)I would not recommend anything past 2.9L. However getting your head worked would be much cheaper than getting a stroker kit. Good luck none the less.
