Or do you think i would need to go bigger? Im not looking to break any HP records here just get some good numbers. EX. 300-350. Thanks guys
We need a LOT more information here. Are you talking about like a Brian Crower/Cosworth/or Manley stroker kit With just the internals Or do you plan on buying a stroked short block? You can always piece together your own set up, for my stroker build I bought Mahle pistons(460$), BNIB eagle h rods with arp rod bolts(200$), a lightly used 2010 crank(150$), ACL race main and rod bearings for 75$, which is a fair amount cheaper than most kits.
If you buy a pre-assembled kit like the ones above it should contain all the items you need to assemble the bottom end besides case halves, then you will need machine work and depending on the kit, everything balanced.
I think Sti pinks will be maxing out with that set up, with a proper tune a vf34 will hit the 300s. You should also get the heads refreshed, a timing belt kit, all new gaskets, and I would do new head studs just to be safe.
