Default Any ej205 strokers? Chime in.

Im currently looking at the BC stroker kits. They seem pretty resonably priced. How do these hold up to power?? I recently threw a rod in my ej205 and had a thought to just stroke it , since the stroker kit comes with another crank anyway. The description says its rated to 600 hp. Is this true? Anyone have any experiences with ej205 strokers? Or should I just opt for the sti longblock w/o avcs?

Have you done ANY research? BC is crap, I wouldn't trust their stuff farther than I can throw it. But many many here have done strokers, if you do some research you should find LOTS of info.

Do you stick with the same idea for more than 2 days anyways, it was only a few days ago that you started a thread about 2.5 hybrids vs. EJ207s.....

Seriously man.... it's getting REALLY annoying

welll, audiosavvy must not know too much...BC stuff isn't crap and actually most of it is outsourced...supertech valves, CP pistons, Crower rods, etc...

It depends on what you get and they aren't that bad. I will however say, as someone who is direct with them and has since they opened shop (when Brian use to answer the phone), they haven't done the most research in their products, like you'll find with someone who does subies alone (or maybe a few other platforms).

Also, the displacements they show are with the biggest sleeved block bore you can fit into each respective block...so unless you have sleeves and the biggest bore you won't have what they advertise.

I've heard their cams are pretty good, valves are decent, and springs and retainers used to suck but got redone so they are actually good now. The rest of their kit isn't made by them but should be decent.

Which BC setup are we referring to? BC racing or Brian Crower? If it's BC Racing, then I stand completely corrected if what you say is true. If it's Brian Crower, then we are not talking about the same thing.

I wasn't referring to Brian Crower, but I didn't see anything for BC Racing after looking. So we weren't talking about the same thing. I see BC all day in 2.0 and 2.5 and Newbies, and didn't even think 'Brian Crower', I thought BC Racing.

My apologies for the confusion
But my point remains the same, which had nothing at all to do with the product at hand

Haha yeah, you weren't wrong. Brian Crower stuff is decent, for the price especially.

Honda guys have been breaking BC cams like slim jims lately...

From what I understand - Brian's products aren't quite as reliable and up to par as Crower products..

I've heard good things as well, just know B series BC cams don't like to stay a 1 piece design. FYI, I wouldn't say anything, but I do believe I read 5-6 threads with pictures and quite a few more without...

I wouldn't be scared to run his products but would look in other directions for a better deal first as I'm poor

yeah, having spent about an hour with them on the phone, I opted not to use my rediculous hookup on their cams...instead had some custom ones made for $1000...I would have an issue with the valves, springs/retainers, or internals....though I'm not a fan of the 2.7 stroker at all...too much heachache and I don't like the harmonic ranges that it crosses.

I could give two ****s about what you think is annoying....
Im simply running through my options and thinking them out. Its within my rights to, unless you disagree. Brian Crower is not BC racing.....

thanks! However I'm waiting on yet another Tax ID that Nasioc requires me to have before starting my vendor account. So I'm currently waiting on the wonderful commonwealth of VA. So once I finally get it () I still have to wait nasioc's 15 day waiting/processing period...maybe in the next month?

keep in mind I gave a ballpark price on the rotating kit. I also still plan on doing it as a group-buy to make the initial kits more affordable, as custom parts aren't cheap.
