Can someone give me the pros and cons of a stock stroke and higher compression piston compared to using a +2mm stroke and either a stock compression or slightly higher piston. Did some talking with Hot Rod and thinking about their new stroker setup.

I like the way my stock bore motor runs. I know these is more power there but i don't need it for the type of racing i am doing i need it to last a 2 hour race. I would call like rage,dasa,racers edge az they are all good shops and will get you the power you are wanting.
