Yeah the rotating assembly (crank,rods,pistons) need to be hardened steel to handle that power

Okay well thank you. Here i am learning everything there is to know about rebuilding the top end and i haven't learned a thing about the bottom end yet. Do you recommend any web sites?

Look for forged rotating assemblies. I know a lot of guys swear by MMRs stuff

Re: bottom end

stock you can hold a good bit of power (400-450rwhp) if you were building no idea on best brands but you want all forged and 8.5:1 to 9.0:1 or there about compression for boost probably on a daily driver~ it gets costly QUICK and if you let the wrong place build your motor it can turn into a massive money pit this is where RESEARCH is key.
