Stroker Kits - Done Right

VPE Villain Engine Kits are available in various displacements and are based on a factory block, 4340 forged steel rods, and a cast steel crankshaft with Probe SRS Series forged pistons. Most feature Nitride Steel Top/Napier Second Ring Sets and are perfectly suited as stock replacement, or they can be set up for high performance street or street and strip combinations. Boost is not recommended with cast steel crankshafts.

The longest rod feasible is utilized in each instance, which gains the maximum piston to counterweight and rod bolt to camshaft clearance possible, as well as decreased piston weight.

Altered stroke and/or compression ratios are not legal for use in emissions controlled vehicles.
