That is a thought. Seems to be the easier and better way around it is to swap in a EJ22 and be done with it. No dicking around making a stroker.

However, I don't see why you can't explore. Grab a spare motor, tear it down and play around till you figure it out. Sounds like a way to spend a weekend.

I have heard an urban legend that ea71 pistons in an ea81/82 will raise the compression and a set of MPFI heads will flow better than the standard 2 ports. I have not seen this setup myself but I can say having a turbo car the MPFI head design is a huge improvement over the 2 port. the cost of building a high compression mpfi head ea82 might far exceed the cost of swapping in an ej.

I have had many dreams for my ol' Draggin' Wagon, but it died and is currently on life support(stuck inside a storage unit). I haven't figured out whether I want to put another engine in it or shoot it with my shotgun..LOL.:lol: I was thinking of possibly parting it at one point.
