Welcome to Stroker Engine. My name is John Nijssen aka Stroker John

 

I do not sell engines, I build engines, mostly street strip combinations, both lower cost "budget" motors and for maximum monster power makers.

I am a small operation specializing powerful street V8 engines to meet specific needs, either massive low speed torque or upper RPM horsepower.

I don't try to sell you what I like, but rather you and I figure out what you really need for power and price.

You can contact me directly by calling my cell 760-508-4562 8am to 8pm California. If I don't answer it is because I didn't hear the phone ring, try again.

Or you can write to me at strokerengine@hotmail.com or use my comments and questions page Click here.

 

I only build V8 engines Chevrolet Chrysler Ford Pontiac.

 

I started out in this field as an apprentice automotive machinist in New Zealand in 1977. I graduated first in my class 1980 and moved to the USA in 1982.
I worked in various machine shops for many years until 2001 when I decided to start building custom high performance engines for those who where looking for something more than the GM crate engine combination, or the Edelbrock heads type motors that were widely sold.
I'm not saying anything against these engines, only that for about the same price I can provide more power because I don't need to add on as much profit to cover my overhead.

I do not keep motors "on the shelf" waiting for an owner. There are too many possible combinations, and I'm yet to build 2 motors exactly the same, except for the line of industrial natural gas and propane V8 truck bus and pump motors I developed.

I'm not a parts store. If you live overseas I can match usually match or beat Summit and Jegs prices, but I'm of most help to you in arranging importation.
If you are in the US I can get you better pricing on cranks and rods and pistons and AFR heads and balanced crank kits, but if you need a carburetor or plug wires my price is about the same as Summit Racing.

The engines I build usually cost a little less than many larger other online companies, but if you are looking for the very lowest price, try ebay.

I like helping people and talking high performance engines. If you write or call I will answer your questions as best I can, but keep in mind I am busy building motors.
Please don't ask me to solve problems with a motor your purchase from another engine builder, that's just not right.


I do promote the use of AFR heads as being the best choice, but I do use many brands like CHI Yates and Kasse. I like Procharger as a great wat to hide a supercharger and Whipple to destroy tires, but also use Vortech and Hampton for GMC Roots style blowers.

I mostly build small and big block Chevys and the newer LS sytle engines.
383s are still the most popular but I can build small block Chevys 427 and 434 when using the Dart SHP block.
Using a Dart block the 590 combination works very well, but it can be pushed up to 660cid if you have the need.I sold the last 772cid monster.

In Ford I do the 302 block as 331 or 347, like everyone else.
With a Windsor the 408 and 418 work very well.
If you want more torque this block will go 427 and 434. If we step up and use a Dart block 467 is about the limit. I made 711Hp at 6400rpm with a Yates Wedge cut head on a 463 Clevor.

The AFR just brought out a 385cc BBC head if you want to build someting massive.

The 460 block works well as a 545 and with the Kaase P51 heads makes an effortless 600hp.

I do Chrysler 440 based motors up to 550cid but recommend 520cid as more re3liable, and I do some Pontiac engines

I build motors with blowers, GMC roots, Screw Compressors and Prochargers.

For examples click below...

 

I also do 590s and 632 BBC to run on LPG or CNG. My buddy has pulled 75,000lbs with a 632 in a big rig on LPG/propane using Dart 8.1L heads making 880Tq at 2500rpm.

I do answer technical questions via email or in the Questions and Comments page

Understanding horsepower and why you must quote RPM. Not that these 2 engines both make 500Hp, but one is clearly more powerful than the other. Find out why on my Questions and Comments Page

MY MISSION STATEMENT

 
johnbuilderms.jpg picture by johnnijssen
I want to provide the best deals I can on high performance domestic stroker engines.
I enjoy working on high performance engines and believe buying a hot rod engine should be fun.
I will work with you to develop the engine YOU want and can afford.

We use both high dollar top quality American made parts, and also selectively the less expensive imported crankshafts and rods.
You can choose either to build the strongest motor possible, or a less expensive, but still more than strong enough to live a long time.

I provide engines built with the same quality that I would use in my own application.
My philosophy is to put the client first and make money second.

My focus has shifted to suppling engines internationally, as I believe this is where I can provide the greatest savings in cost and service


 WARNING


Replacing an engine with a more powerful StrokerEngine may require increasing the strength of related components,such as the transmission, u-joints, driveshaft, differential and axles.

It may also be a good idea to improve the brakes and if you add enough extra power, you may need to stiffen the chassis frame rails.

Traction may become a problem.
Slicks increase stress, where as smoking street tires ease this load on the power train.

Long duration camshafts may require a higher stall torque converter, and high compression ratios will require racing gas or octane boasters.
Be sure you plan your engine combination carefully.

High compression ratios, long duration camshafts high speed torque converters work well when racing, but can just waste gas, and be a pain to drive in stop and go commuting to work traffic.
A modestly powerful engine maybe all you need.

pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

PRO SYSTEM RACING CARBURETORS
In 2010 Bischoff Engine Service proved our 4150 Pro Series to be the highest powered carbureted entry at the Engine Masters Challenge. But it gets better, our 4150 design went up against several high end carb builders in a dyno session shootout held at Bischoffs facility to determine the most poweful carb for their Engine Masters Challenge entry. We were glad to come out on top in that unbiased dyno test.


Blow Through: This design currently holds the World Record on the Salt as driven by Willie Glass at over 208 mph in a '29 Hi Boy (as delivered "out of the box" no adjustment, it was dead on)

C&S SPECIALTIES


Stock Holley discharge nozzles are very close to the throttle plates. This creates a fuel-distribution problem at part throttle. Throttle plates direct fuel to the center of the intake manifold. This richens center cylinders and leans end cylinders, even if the total mixture was perfect. This reduces potential torque and smoothness
The new C&S design fixes this problem. Location of the fuel delivery nozzle is raised one-half inch, allowing the mixture to spread before reaching the throttle plates. A greater distribution improvement is gained with a new nozzle design. The result is a dramatic increase in torque at part throttle and a feel of smoothness. Top end power is increased due to better vaporization, less variation in air/fuel and higher air velocity through the venturi.

Vacuum Secondaries
Mechanical Secondaries

Racers have struggled for decades to equalize air and fuel mixtures from cylinder to cylinder in four-barrel intake manifolds. Chevy small blocks run lean on #3 and #5. Small block Fords and Big Block Chevy’s run lean on the four corner cylinder.
A new system from C&S solves this problem and adds over 18 horsepower.
The 6 Jet/ 8 Jet conversion allows jetting each cylinder, eliminating having to run the entire motor too rich to avoid burning pistons on the lean cylinders.

Product Details







fast_lube.jpgI use CMW OIL products in the assembly of my engine just like the top NASCAR teams do.
It cost more to build an engine this way, but it makes for a longer lasting slightly more powerful engine.

CMW Oil Company has released a new formulated engine treatment that has no MOLY or PTFE. Entech   Engine Oil Additive adjusts its properties under varying conditions in such a way that the chemical bond formed within the protective film become much harder with increasing pressure. When pressure pushes down on it, it can push back because its bonds get ever tighter with more pressure.

Entech is compatible with all synthetic and standard motor oil to achieve outstanding wear control, resistance to thermal breakdown at high operating temperatures and cleanliness that are demanded by today’s sophisticated modern aluminum or steel engines, Rated for gasoline and diesel engines.

  • No Molybdenum Disulphide
  • Increases fuel mileage
  • Extra protection for turbochargers
  • Increases protection during break-in
  • Reduces frictional values
  • Excellent adhesion properties
  • Compatible with petroleum and synthetic lubricants
  • Completely oil soluble   
 
 

It will raise the quality of any oil to be suitable for your expensive high performance engine.Orignally intended for diesel engines Shell Rotella T has proven it's self in petrol engines and only cost about a the same as crappy oil.

Adding a bottle of CMW OIL ENGINE ADDITIVE to any oil makes it way better.
I can provide you with CMW OIL Entech Engine Oil Additive EA37580E
with your motor at $15 a bottle or $14 in groups of 4.

The Very Best Petroleum Oil I know of is

 

It has the best possible additive package (API) ZINI & BORON
Pure Power! SAE 10W/30 CI-4/SL* Motor Oil is API Licensed for Long Drain and Energy Conserving. Pure Power! has an extremely high TBN/Alkaline Reserve (13+) which effectively neutralizes corrosive acids to protect bearings and other vital surfaces. Pure Power! extends motor oil change intervals 2-4 times, lowers operating temperatures, lowers emissions, increases fuel mileage and increases horsepower. These are just some of the benefits from using Pure Power
&While Pure Power does cost more than cheap oil, combined with their Filter, the oil change interval is EXTENDED TO 12,000 MILES! This means it will eventually safe you money, but more importantly it is saving your engine ESPECIALLY big truck engines!

The Last Oil Filter You Will Every Need To Buy For Your Engine.
