I'm not sure what you're asking. Why would you want more than 444 ci? What are you trying to do?

I think it is kind of funny on a board full of perfomance enthusiasts the question comes up "Why would you want more than 444 ci?"

Because the money is MUCH better spent in other places... It's not like a SBC motor, where you can stroke it and bore it and get some more HP. I'm just trying to save the guy wasted money if he wants to make power...

Please explain me the benefits of ONLY installing a stroker motor into the 7.3.

When did i ever mention ONLY installing a stroker kit? Try not putting words in peoples mouths and you might not get so uptight over a comment you read here.

I apologise. I've been rude. Sometimes I only have time for short comments, and I get everything misconstrued. I'll have time to get a good answer for you guys soon. I hope you can forgive me for my rudeness.

I understand completely. And that's what I've been messing up on. I forget we all like to learn random stuff from time to time.

I haven't forgot about your answer.... The short answer is that there's better places to spend money. The long answer is much more in-depth. And it has a lot to do with the efficiency of the motor,tuning, and the fact that we don't have a lot of room to work with the window we're in. There WOULD be gains in boring and stroking, but they are so far down the line, and there's lots of other places that need to be looked at.

I believe Double Overtime is running stock displacement, check him out on youtube. Type in "Ben Miller Double Overtime".
