You're right.....with ~15% drivetrain loss you should be right around 800 crank. My mistakes, I thought he was referring to wheel.

All good broski, and that's only 12-13psi on a V3.

No, not simple. GTS rods are different length, possibly different
wrist-pin size; and pistons have different wrist-pin location than
normal. If you plan to go 4.4, then you need to replace the
entire rotating assembly (crank, rods, pistons). I talked about
going that route and decided the aftermarket cranks are much
better than stock anyways, and you're still talking about an extra
$8k-10k in expenses.

But..... You can just Add a 4.4 or 4.6 crank to the mix for an additional 5-7k but then you run into the problem of the DCT holding the power, and a 4.0LC is already at 800chp which is plenty for me , for now .

Congratulations. We had some not-so-polite conversations in back, but that's not going to prevent me wishing the best for your projects.

Not to mention that with a stroker you are shifting the powerband and a lot more torque down low. That's something the DCT won't find interesting.

I liked them a lot but I feel titanium would look better on Black,white,sparkling graphite .
The black looks insane when seen in person , it's hard to judge by pictures
