Will installing stroker shift powerband to a more "torquey" engine ?
What RPM's is the max torque & power of a stroker engine as compared to stock's 3200 & 6400 rpm's ?

No one can answer that question, even if they'd done empirical testing or computer modelled every combination of engine components.

Even if you told us everything you could about the configuration you'd chosen (stroke, rod length, stat/dynamic compression ratio, cam profile, cam timing, ignition advance, boost, volumetric efficiency), it would still be nigh on impossible to answer.

Stroked generally means more torque a bit sooner, possibly more power at the top but greater stress on rods and less keenness to rev. Ideally you want to reduce redline to keep max piston speed down.

The main reason a stroker hit max torque sooner is the extra displacement or the less "oversquare" bore/stroke ratio ?
