Re: Lower end kits?

A good lower end could mean alot of different things. If you are asking where to find a good forged bottom end, then I would reccomend MMR or Fastlane Motorsports.

That's known as a short block. When you get the crank, rods, and pistons and the bearings that's known as your rotating assembly. Forged internals are just a stronger type of the rotating assembly versus the factory cast parts. Forged is highly recommended if you plan on running either forced induction or a higher compression ratio, though not so much for the compression ratio.
