Thanks for the input, I am a college student I have done a bunch of work on my brother's 02 with a 5.9l, we took apart the top of his block (i.e. heads, intake manifold, pulley system) the only thing wuz we had somebody to put in his cam. Needless to say I was sittin under his hood for hours on end so im pretty familiar with these motors. My plan is to pick up a block from a junkyard (kinda iffy), order the stroker kit(internally balanced or externally?), take the block to a machine shop get it bored out(know who will do it), get misc parts (oil pump, overhaul gasket set, etc.) heads(probably r/t), intake manifold(any ideas?), cold air intake set, B&G pcm flash, any thing else help me out. thanks.
By the way my bros 02 dodge is pushing just below 400hp and about 430+ft lb of torque...badass ride!!!
