Well if that's the case do you have a preference on pistons? I used Wossner in mine, and was considering using them in this one. Also tuning for this motor is a fun fun fun job...hehe I also recommend a BIG turbo as my 20g just doesn't cut the mustard at higher RPMs... Do you want a 9k redline or something more more mundane like 8k...???

Keith if it needs something bigger than a 20G, then its not for me. I honestly want to stick with my 20G for as long as it lasts, then if/when the time comes just run another one.

**And the wife just saw the thread/replies, lol so Im caught (**

Well I run a 20g and it's fine til about 7200 then it starts to drop off, maybe even before then. I am looking at a GT40 possibly for an upgrade soon. Meh just tell the wife it's a good idea to have a spare motor just in case...lol

You guys are just wrong. I would have talked to her about it. It would be really nice, but kids, cars, my job and lifestyle are always at war with each other. Thanks tho Keith.

Oh anytime. I have to take it 2.5hrs away to have the block machined since no one local will ever touch one of my blocks. Once I get it back I will post up some pics of everything.

Ha, I never assumed a scandal. I'd think that'd be pretty tough to hide from the wifey.

Well I got the crank back from the machinist today and it turned out better than expected...


Please excuse the clutter in my computer room. I just finished unpacking some boxes I found in the basement and still trying to get stuff arranged right.!Notfunny!

Should be getting the rods back tomorrow. I will post them up once I get a chance. Pistons should be here within a few days. Stupid UPS taking forever to get me my stuff...

Well as promised I got my rods back today. They are looking pretty good for used STi rods, but then again they only had about 23k on them....
