Need advice on rebuild kit.

I'm rebuilding my engine due to a lower rod knock in it. I am looking at these 3 rebuild kits on this site. My question is should I use the forged pistons or the hyperectectic <- not sure if spelled right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd buy the most expensive one .. Sealed power is good , make sure you have the machine shop bore your block to those exact specs though

Thanks guys. I was thinking the most expensive would be best. Forged internals are what my mechanic friend were suggesting. This way I can boost that bad boy in the coming future.

You could buy a lower mileage running 2V for those prices.

Are the rods forged in one of those kits? Or just the pistons?

Ok, let us know if you find out. I'm looking for a forged kit for the 4.6 block sitting in my storage unit.

If you are dead set on a rebuild kit...

Get you a set of inexpensive forged pistons from your shop of choice, find a 96-04 forged Cobra/Mach crank and get a set of rods out of a Termi or a new set of Coyote rods. Get the gaskets/bearings/seals/rings from anywhere, ARP studs for the heads and re-use the rest of your hardware. Done and done.

If your block checks out as far as the bores and all you need is a hone then you can throw terminator pistons in there too but you'll have a lower compression IIRC. This is great if you plan on putting a blower on it later...

Not a problem. They can get a complete forged set from another manufacturer for $2000 plus some change. And by complete I mean rotating assembly and everything.
