making my engine bigger

hi my name is Will and i just moved to Colorado and I have a few questions and things that i want to do to my WRX engine. Where would I find a stroker kit for my 2012 2.5 L WRX? I want to make my engine a little bit bigger. If anyone can help please let me know.

Why would you want to? I mean a 2.5 is a decent size motor and have you done anything else to the car to increase power?

Why do you feel you need a stroker kit?

If I wanted a custom built motor with a non-stock displacement, it sure wouldn't be a stroked 2.5L. I'd get a EJ22T and stroke that. Like, I dunno, Keith :P

I dunno if destroke a 2.5L. I want the smaller piston heads of the EJ22 and the solid block. Combine it with forged pistions, they're an unexpectedly stout package

To me it was using what I had at the time. I would really like to build the 2.5L block with a 1.6L crank, but that is big money that I just don't have right now.

Depending on cams, etc. around 12k would be easy to pull of. Biggest drawback is the custom crank that would run about $3500. Other than that it wouldn't be to awful bad I suppose. Great for a nice road track car.
