DSS racing sells one with forged rods and pistons, the crank isnt but the cast crank will outlast a stock 5.0 block by far. Its $880 with -3cc flat top pistons. Add $50 for dished -13cc and another 50 or 60 for arp bolts, optional. You can also upgrade the rings and have them balance it.

I think with the -13cc pistons and 61cc heads, compression is around 8.6-1

Idk man. Your really going to be in danger with a stock block. 500 at the crank is about the limit on them. DSS also sells a main girdle that will help strengthen the block, they claim 600hp at the crank. The T5 probably wont last long behind it either. IMO if you want over 450 at the wheels then go with an aftermarket block like a boss block or a dart block. Or go 351w.

I think you want a 351w then man they take about 700 or so rwhp so at 500rwhp you would be really safe an then when ye want more ye can just turn the boost up;p

The debate over 2 vs 4 bolt mains is going to go on forever. A lot of people don't see the benefit, once you start talking about having it tapped for 4 bolts, just move up to a better block.

With a good tune and the girdle, i think you will be fine with 450 at the wheels. But i wouldn't push it much farther. I think the tune is going to be the deciding factor on how it will hold up.

I absolutely love it it has no limits and can be used in anything u just send it to DIY auto tune and they put the base program in it and put the extra chip in for boost then u program it to ur specific upgrades I've had my ecu the megasquirt 2 for 2 years and the only thing that was wrong with it was my fault ( tunned it my self ) they have also improved on there design it cost a pretty penny I gave 550 for mine
