A stroker kit is typically a different crankshaft, rods and pistons that effectively increase the displacement of an engine by increasing the stroke, or travel of piston within the cylinder. The old addage "no replacement for displacement" holds true but there is a limit to just how much an engine can be "stroked". More tradtional engine builders will bore and stroke an engine, i.e. boring out the cylinder walls and lengthing the travel to increase displacement. The #1 problem with the EJ series engines is the open block design is very close to its limits in terms of cylinder wall thickness so we're relegated to stroking only. Hope this helps.

search on the web for aftermarket stroker kits for aircooled VW flat 4's, and you'll find volumes of info. almost all of what's true there carries over, ESPECIALLY parts about keeping engine temps down. having owned a 2.0L beetle in FL (with numerous extra oil coolers and the biggest fan i could jam under the early-style decklid), i can tell you that even with a liquid cooled engine, proper cooling is still ESSENTIAL; make sure you don't overlook that.

I was curious about this too, and found a kit by JUN, but thought it would be for raising a 2.0 to a 2.2. I have a 2.2 already, does anyone know if the SOHC 2.2 can use the parts from a SOHC 2.5 for the same effect?

You would need to get a 2.2l stroker kit. The EJ25 parts would not work. Try Paeco Industries for info on stroker kits.
