The best you could do without overheating issues is ~1720ccs. That would require purchasing ~$1000 78mm sleeves. I've seen 79s and 80s, butthose are drag N/A motors only.

so you could increase the displacement .2 liters buy just larger pistons? most stroker "kits" include longer rods and stuff like that...but hey, whatever works

Yea if I do anything it would be a swap. But wouldn't that be sweet to be running around with a 1.8 sohc.
