Hybrid build or EJ20 with rods and pistons?
I need help deciding if i should go with the hybrid build or the ej20 with pistons and rods. The thing is if i go hybrid i need to send the heads out to compensate for the bigger bore of the ej25 block, otherwise i would get detonation due to the edges of the ej20 head. How much would it cost for the head job? My budget is about $2000, so if i do the hybrid i can get a rebuilt ej25 short block for about $1000 so that would leave me with $1000 left. If I go with a mild build for ej20 rods, pistons and bearings would cost me about $850. I want to achieve at least 300hp, but would like the engine to withstand about 400 to 450hp safely in case i decide i want more power. Does anyone have any ideas or help they can offer me?
