Stroking an engine is altering the crank pin location to increase or decrease the piston travel in the cylinder which then increases or decreases the engine's displacement.

i think he was wondering what stroked means. stroking is when you put a larger crank in with a longer throw. so the piston moves further. It usually lowers your rpm and gives you more torque.

a "stroker" engine is an engine that has had a different crank shaft put in it to increase the displacement of the engine. most people increase the bore of the cylinders to also inscrease displacement. a 347 is a stroked/bored 302. stock 302s have a bore of 4" and stroke of 3", if you increase the bore to 4.030" and the stroke to 3.40", you get 347ci.
