This is over simplified, but basically shorter rods are used to connect crankshaft to pistons; creating a longer downstroke of piston inside cylinder. This increases cylinder volume; which allows more air/fuel; which increases power output.

An engine's displacement ( or sise) is dependent on the bore and the stroke of the cylinders (also the number of cylinders, of course). Bore is the diameter of the cylinder and stroke is the distance traveled by the piston.

To increase displacement, you can increase the bore by reaming out the cylinders and fitting new pistons. You can also replace the crankshaft to increase the stroke. This generally requires new pistons and new connecting rods. as well. You can also do both, so the engine is "bored and stroked"

You can still control compression....by the surface of the top of the piston.....either concave.....or a "Flattop" or a raised surface....how much of these determines how much or little compression

in the case of the s85 motor you guys are all wrong. stroker means you're getting stroked if you think a little more than 100hp is worth over $40k!!!
