General seat-of-the-pants speculation a while back was that a properly
ventilated stroker would get maybe 125.

Nice thing about a stroker is the valve train is more solid than the U20
'blow my chain thru the valve cover' design. OHC is more efficient, so
HP numbers are a bit better, but longevity counts too :-)

With both a 1600 and a 2000 so you can't say I'm playing favorites.
Plus a core 1600 that'll be stroked if I find 2000 guts for cheap :-)
