Forged internals question

With my supercharger, I'm at the upper limits of what my engine can take. A lot of folks say you need forged internals in order to go above 400hp. Can you please tell me specifically what replacement parts list I need to allow 650-700hp safely??

Are those the only few parts that need forged for 600-700 hp?

Rotating assembly - crank, rods, pistons plus hardware.
Depending what you choose machining of block and heads. Possible valve job.
Head gaskets & studs ( stock heads would be a waste at that level, buy some quality heads).

All depends on budget and plans

I thought the stock crank was good for much more hp?

600-650 is about the limit. So with your goal, you will want to upgrade it.

Forged short block is about 3200 to 3500 heads port and polished new valves springs ect 1750 (stock heads) plus fuel system may as well plan on 10,000 for all you will need by the time it's done

It's not always the guy with the most horsepower that wins the race. It's the guy whose car is set up properly.

I have a few friends local to me who have gone big 2v builds in the last few years. I hate to say it but all the money, time and aggravation have given them cars that are constantly breaking something else.
